Technology & Combat Characteristics
The RGM-91S Jegan Enhanced Armor Type is an improved version of the RGM-89 Jegan. It has a different backpack with more powerful engines and certain section of its body has better armor due to the use of Gundarium Alloy. It also has added apogee motors on its groin and legs. Its armament seems to be similar the Jegan's, but replaces the waist-mounted grenade rack with a second beam saber rack.
- Vulcan Pod System
- As with the original Jegan, the Jegan Enhanced Armor Type can mount a vulcan pod system on the left side of its head as a close-range defensive armament. It utilizes caseless rounds stored in a removable magazine located in the right side of the head. The 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 Enhanced Armor Type has two beam sabers, one stored in each side armor.
- Beam Rifle
- The standard ranged armament of many mobile suits is the beam rifle. The Jegan Enhanced Armor Type uses the same beam rifle as the original Jegan. It has a short barrel for ease of handling, and is most effective in mid-close range combat due to its short firing range. Although its output is reduced, it has an excellent rate of fire, and can eliminate enemy accurately during melee combat when utilize in conjunction with the composite sensor at the top of the rifle.
- A standard defensive armament to protect against physical attacks and has anti-beam coating on its surface for defending against beam attacks. The Jegan Enhanced Armor Type uses the same shield as the original Jegan, which has a pair of twin missile launchers. The small missiles fired from these launchers have composite sensors in their tips, allowing them to home in onto their target even under the interference of minovsky particles in the battlefield. However, they have a short range and are basically for use in close combat as they only carry a small amount of propellant.
The Earth Federation Forces is said to have produced twenty RGM-91S units, but the exact production number is only known to the top brass.
