With the Gelgoog, the Principality of Zeon at last creates a mobile suit to rival

the Earth Federation's Gundam . The Gelgoog boasts high performance and

sturdy armor like that of the Rick Dom , but it's also equipped with powerful

beam weapons . Although it's the best mass-produced mobile suit to appear in

the war, the Gelgoog arrives too late to change the course of the conflict, and

due to Zeon's manpower shortage it's piloted mostly by inexperienced trainees.
