The RGZ-95C ReZEL Type C (Defenser a-Unit) is a variant of the RGZ-95C ReZEL Commander Type. It first appears in the manga Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn - Bande Dessinee.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

The RGZ-95C ReZEL Type C (Defenser a-Unit) is the ReZEL Commander Type equipped with the optional Defenser a-Unit backpack.[1] Developed specifically for the ReZEL, the Defenser backpack is a space-use assault backpack for conducting rapid, preemptive attacks on the frontline or at enemy's stronghold.[1] Due to the high skills needed to use the Defenser backpack properly, it is normally fitted on the ReZEL Commander Type.[1] There are two versions of the Defenser backpack, the "a-Unit" and the "b-Unit".[1] The Defenser a-Unit backpack is armed with micro missiles and hyper beam sabers for dealing widespread damage at close to mid range.[1] The Defenser a-Unit backpack also has additional thrusters, and the usual side skirts of the ReZEL Commander Type are replaced with movable, thruster equipped tail binders.[1] In waverider mode, the tail binders boost the suit's propulsion capabilities, and in mobile suit mode, they improve the suit's mobility, allowing it to change direction quickly.[1]


  • 60mm Vulcan Gun
A standard armament mounted on most Federation mobile suits. The pair of head mounted shell firing weapons have a high-rate of fire, but little power. They are mainly used to restrain enemy units, intercept missiles and the like.
  • Beam Rifle
The main armament of this machine, it has a shape close to that of the beam rifle used by the Zeta Gundam. The ReZEL's beam rifle is powered by a replaceable E-pack, if the E-pack runs out of energy it can be replaced with a fresh one stored under the ReZEL's shield. Besides the standard shooting mode, the ReZEL's beam rifle also has a long duration, high output shooting mode that is known among the federation’s pilot as the ‘Guillotine burst’. Lastly, the beam rifle's muzzle can generate a beam blade, allowing the rifle to function as a long beam saber.
  • Shield
A multipurpose defensive equipment developed specifically for the ReZEL. A beam cannon that fires in a 3-round burst is mounted at the front, and serves as the main weapon in waverider mode. The blade at the back of the shield can be used as a ramming weapon in close combat.
  • Grenade Launcher
A grenade launcher with two rounds can be mounted in each forearm. It is comparable to the ones used by the Re-GZ and has proven effective in close combat. Can be switched out for the beam sabers.
  • Beam Saber
A beam weapon for close combat. It is a small device held in the mobile suit's hands when operated and is powered by a rechargeable energy capacitor. It emits a blade of plasma contained by an I-Field and can cut through any armor not treated with anti-beam coating. A pair of beam sabers can be stored in each forearm. Can be switched out for the Grenade Launcher.
  • Hyper Beam Saber
A pair of hyper beam sabers are stored on the Defenser a-Unit backpack. The beam blade emitted have a 50% higher output than the one generated by a normal beam saber, and can hit multiple enemy units in a single strike.[1] It is developed based on the weapon of the same name used by the MSZ-010 ΖΖ Gundam, and is refined for use by mass production mobile suits.[1] Unlike the ZZ Gundam's, the Defenser a-Unit's hyper beam saber cannot function as beam cannon while stored; the firing mechanism is omitted in favor of stable energy supply.[1]
  • Micro Missile
The six containers mounted on the tip of the Defenser a-Unit backpack contains a total of 96 micro missiles.[1] The micro missile are meant for widespread, pre-emptive strikes in close to mid range combat.[1]


In the manga, when Full Frontal and his MSN-06S Sinanju attacked the Nahel Argama, some of the ReZEL pilots were given permission to use the Defenser units. Two ReZEL Commander Type (Defenser a-Unit) were deployed, one piloted by Norm Basilicock, along with a RGZ-95 ReZEL (Defenser b-Unit) piloted by Riddhe Marcenas, and a Stark Jegan to intercept the Sinanju.
