The WMS-03 Maganac is a mobile suit featured in Mobile Suit Gundam Wing.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

The WMS-03 Maganac was a mobile suit developed by the countries of the Middle East to counter OZ and the United Earth Sphere Alliance.[1] Intended for operations in the desert, an unusual environment for mobile suits, the Maganac was given high dust-proof capabilities and mobility.[1] Despite being mobile suits with specifications close to local types, they have high versatility and their performance surpassed the OZ-06MS Leo.[1] The Maganac was also developed to be operated in cooperation with the XXXG-01SR Gundam Sandrock.[1] Almost all of the 40 units were individually customized to have different abilities and traits such as enhanced melee combat capabilities and communication functions depending on their pilots' skills and roles, there is also the commander type piloted by Rashid Kurama, the leader of the Corps.[1] They can also be adapted for operations in space.[1]

Armaments

  • Vulcan Gun
Appearing only in the EW version, these head-mounted shell firing weapons have a high rate of fire, but little power and are generally ineffective against mobile suits. However, they can damage lightly armored areas such as the sensors, and are ideal for shooting down small, lightly armored targets such as missiles or attack vehicles.
  • Shield
Defensive equipment large enough to cover the entire body, it is equipped on the left arm via an attachment.[1] Reactive armor can also be applied to its surface.[1] Can be stored on the backpack when not in use.[1]
  • Beam Rifle
A sensor is attached to the barrel and an energy pack is attached to the bottom.[1] They excel in rapid firing and were used in mid-range firefights.[1] They were powerful enough to destroy the OZ-06MS Leo with one shot. [1] One energy pack provided energy for approximately 20 shots.[1]
  • Heat Tomahawk
A melee weapon for severing enemies, it has a large blade that emits high heat.[1] It can be thrown and is equipped by many of the Maganac Corps unit.[1]
  • Large Rifle
  • Beam Saber
The Maganac Large Rifle Type mounts a beam saber on its backpack.
  • Arm Rifle
Equipped instead of the left hand in the Maganac Rifle Type.

Special Equipment & Features

  • Hovercraft Propulsion System
  • Diffusing Cloak
Featured only on the EW version, it is a piece of material with anti-beam coating that is able to take a few beam shots before disintegrating.

History

Despite the OZ and United Earth Sphere Alliance's powerful influence and military strength, some pockets of people in the Earth Sphere continued to resist them. One of these groups was the Maganac Corps, a band of freedom fighters operating primarily out of the Middle East who had built their own mobile suit, the WMS-03 Maganac. During the Operation Meteor in A.C.195, 40 Maganac units fought alongside the Gundam Sandrock on Earth and in Space, and all of them survived.[1] This proved the skills of the pilots and the performance of the Maganacs.[1]

Variants

  • Maganac Rifle Type
A Maganac that is fitted with a shell-firing arm rifle instead of a left hand.
  • Maganac Large Rifle Type
A Maganac equipped with a large rifle. It also mounts a single beam saber on the backpack.
Introduced in New Mobile Report Gundam Wing: Frozen Teardrop, when Katherine Oud Winner defects from the group. She is intercepted by Trowa, along with Heero and Duo in their Snow White and Warlock, and she attacks them with Maganac mobile dolls as she tries to escape. These 39 Maganac mobile dolls are controlled by a piloted commander type machine with added antenna on the head and added spikes on the shoulder armor.

Notes & Trivia

  • Although Maganac rarely appears as a playable unit in the Super Robot Wars series, XXXG-01SR2 Gundam Sandrock Kai often has a special attack called Maganac Attack during which the Maganac Corps appear and attacks the enemy, and Sandrock Kai deals the finishing blow.
    • While in most games, the Maganacs simply fires a barrage of beams during the attack, the Maganac Attack's animation is much more detailed in W and L. First, the Maganac Corps appear and fires a beam barrage, then, Rashid's customized Maganac slashes the enemy with its heat tomahawk, followed by Abdul's customized Maganac and another Maganac firing their machine guns and Ahmad's Maganac slashing the enemy with its heat tomahawk. Finally, Auda's Maganac seizes the enemy with its powerful claw and Sandrock Kai finishes off the enemy with its heat shotels.
