Technology & Combat Characteristics
The Gyan Eos is a modified version of the YMS-15 Gyan, which lost to the MS-14A Gelgoog to be Zeon's next mainstay mobile suit. The Gyan Eos was jointly created by Zimmad Company and Zeonic Company, and is better suited for actual combat. Its name is derived from the goddess of dawn in Greek mythology, and two prototypes were constructed.
Various new technologies are incorporated into the Gyan Eos, drastically increasing its versatility. It has improved mobility in space and is fitted with a new backpack that is similar to that of the MS-14B Gelgoog High Mobility Type. Gyan Eos also has revised armament, consisting of a mid-close range use Beam Bayonet and a Custom Shield.
- Custom Shield
- The Gyan Eos' shield lacks the missile launchers of the original Gyan's shield, but has higher defensive capability in close combat and is made of new armor materials.
- Beam Bayonet
- An experimental, bayonet-type weapon designed for mid-close range combat. It has a beam sword generator at the tip and a small beam gun further down. Compared to the Gelgoog's beam rifle, the beam gun's firepower and effective range is lower.
- 360mm Giant Bazooka
- The same MS-use bazooka as used by the Dom, it fires rocket-propelled 360mm physical rounds. It is fed by a 10 rounds magazine, and a single round can blow the torso off of an enemy mobile suit.
