The RGM-89DEW EWAC Jegan is a reconnaissance version of the RGM-89D Jegan D Type. It appears in Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn, and the video game adaptation of the same name.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

The RGM-89DEW EWAC Jegan is an equipment variant of the RGM-89D Jegan D Type, and serves as a reconnaissance unit. It has enhanced sensing capabilities thanks to a large sensor unit attached to the head, a second sensor unit on its left forearm, and a large camera unit on its right forearm.[1] The sensor unit on the left forearm has a laser communication device, allowing it to relay gathered information back to the mothership.[2] Since it was never intended to engage in direct combat, the suit's weaponry is kept to a minimum[3] and consisted of a beam saber, a beam rifle and three hand grenades.[1] Its heat emission is extremely low, making it difficult to detect via thermal detection.[3]

Armaments

  • Beam Saber
Like the Jegan D Type, the EWAC Jegan stores a beam saber in a rack on the right side of the waist, and its output can be adjusted as it has two beam emitters. Via selecting the output and emitter, this close combat weapon can emit a flat beam blade for slashing, or a slim beam blade with high penetration ability. The beam saber rack contains an accelerator equipped capacitor system for rapid recharge of the weapon.
  • Hand Grenade
Three hand grenades are carried in the grenade rack mounted on the left side of the waist. They can be thrown and timed to explode after several seconds as set by the pilot, or set to detonate when its sensors detect the metallic signal of extremely nearby enemy machines.
  • Beam Rifle
The standard ranged armament of many mobile suits is the beam rifle, and it fires particle beams that can penetrate almost any armor that has not been treated with specific counter-measures. The EWAC Jegan uses the same beam rifle as the GM II and GM III, and it is stored on the rear waist armor when not in use.

Special Equipment & Features

  • Sensor Unit
The EWAC Jegan has two different sensor units, a larger unit attached to the head, and a smaller unit attached to the left forearm. When the large sensor unit is activated, some of its seams will glow yellow. The left forearm's sensor unit has a laser signalling system for transmitting the data the EWAC Jegan collected back to its mothership/main force.
  • Camera Unit
Attached to the right forearm, it has a high sensitivity camera and can detect light of various wavelengths.

History

Prior to the attack on Palau, two EWAC Jegans were deployed to gather intelligence on the asteroid base, designated 001 Blue and 002 White. During the mission, White was discovered by an AMX-014 Döven Wolf and killed, with the remains of his EWAC Jegan recovered by a RMS-119 EWAC Zack. However, Blue was able to shake off his pursuers, disabling an MS-21C Dra-C and avoiding the Döven Wolf's beam cannon by diving into a debris field. Despite sustaining heavy damage to his machine, he was able to complete his mission and bring back the intelligence on Palau.[4]

Two EWAC Jegan units, designated William 001 and William 002, were assigned to the SCVA-76 Nahel Argama in U.C. 0096. During the battle of Industrial 7, they were deployed to collect data on the location of the "The Sleeves" fleet.[2]

Notes and Trivia

The EWAC Jegan design by Tsukasa Kotobuki

  • The EWAC Jegan replaces the role of the RGM-96X EWAC Jesta in the novel.
  • Prior to the EWAC Jegan's first appearance in the Gundam Unicorn video game, a different version of the EWAC Jegan appeared in the manga Mobile Suit Gundam - Day after Tomorrow: Kai Shiden´s Memory. According to the artist, Tsukasa Kotobuki, he was not made aware of the existence of the UC-MSV version. This EWAC Jegan has the model number "RGM-89E" and was equipped with the same type of head unit as the MSA-007E EWAC Nero.
