The RGM-89M Jegan B-Type (aka Jegan Type M ) is a mobile suit from the Mobile Suit Gundam F91 movie.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

The RGM-89M Jegan B-Type is a variant of the RGM-89J Jegan Normal Type with improved firepower. This increase in offensive power comes in the form of two 5-tube missile launchers mounted on the waist and a second beam saber. The suit's cooling system was also improved and the chest vents were enlarged.

Armament

  • Vulcan Pod System
Mounted on the head, it is a close-range defensive armament. Its mounted vulcan gun has low firepower but a high rate of fire, it is extremely effective at restraining enemy machines, and can destroy the camera, sensors and joints of enemy machine at very close range.
  • Beam Saber
The standard close range armament for most mobile suits, it is a small device held in the mobile suit's hands when operated and is powered by a rechargeable energy capacitor. The beam saber emits a blade of plasma contained by an I-Field and can cut through most armor not treated with anti-beam coating. The Jegan B-Type has two beam sabers stored on the left forearm.
  • 5-tube Missile Launcher
A pair of 5-tube missile launchers are mounted on the sides of the waist for increased offensive capabilities.
  • Shield
A standard defensive armament to protect against physical attacks, it also has anti-beam coating on its surface for defending against beam attacks. The Jegan B-Type's shield also has two 4-tube missile launchers. Despite their general effectiveness since mobile suits were first developed, the shields employed by the Federation in the UC 0120s proved unable to withstand the electromagnetically accelerated spear fired from the shot lancer used by the Crossbone Vanguard mobile suits.
  • Beam Rifle
A standard hand carried ranged beam weapon is the beam rifle, which fires concentrated mega particles that can damage any ordinary armor not specially treated to resist it. It is powered by a replaceable e-pac that could be replaced mid-battle if they ran out of power.

History

The RGM-89 Jegan developed in the early UC 0090's remained the Earth Federation Forces's mainstay mobile suit for thirty years, with its design being overhauled over the years in an attempt to keep up with modern technology. The RGM-89J Jegan Normal Type eventually took over as the Jegan series' basic model, and it had two variants: the RGM-89R Jegan A-Type and the RGM-89M Jegan B-Type. Despite having improved firepower, the Jegan B-Type was still an old design and was no match for the newer more efficient mobile suits fielded by the Crossbone Vanguard during their invasion of the Frontier colonies in UC 0123.
