Zaku I

Zaku II

Gouf

The MS-07 Gouf first appears when Ramba Ral arrives on Earth to avenge the death of Garma Zabi. Ramba Ral and the Gouf proves to be a formidable foe for the White Base crew, as it is far more powerful than the Zakus that the crew have fought, up until that point. The Gouf is armed with a 75 mm machine gun hand and "heat rod", which could be used as a superheated slicing weapon or as a grappling weapon with a powerful electric shock effect. It also has a powerful heat sword, an improved heat-based weapon from the Zaku's heat hawk. The Gouf could also use the standard Zaku II weapons, such as 120 mm machine gun or 280 mm bazooka. Amuro in the Gundam eventually destroy Ramba Ral's Gouf, however the mobile suit soon becomes a mainstay of the Zeon ground forces.

Dom

The MS-09 Dom is the successor to the Zaku II and Gouf mobile suits, and far surpassed both in terms of performance. Developed as a heavy-type, high performance mobile suit, the Dom's chief new features included ground effect hover jets that allowed it to skim battlefield surfaces at high velocity and a torso mounted scattering beam gun used to disorient opponents. The MS-09 Dom, equipped with Zeon's latest technologies, could easily outperform the Federation's new mass production mobile suit, the RGM-79 GM. The first three Dom units shipped out were assigned to the Black Tri-Stars, who had been sent to aid Captain M'Quve's Odessa mining base. However, all three units were destroyed by Gundam's pilot Amuro Ray after only two battles.

Rick Dom

When the battle shifted back to space, the Dom was re-designed from ground combat to space combat. The space-type version, the MS-09R Rick Dom, had the jet engines replaced with rocket thrusters. The Dom series became the mainstay front line unit for the rest of the One Year War. It was supposed to be replaced by the excellent Gelgoog, but the war came to a close too quickly, causing the Dom series to remain the front line mobile suit until the war's end.

Gelgoog

Gyan

The YMS-15 Gyan was developed for and piloted by M'Quve, who used it during an operation in Texas Colony to lure out and destroy the RX-78-2 Gundam. The Gyan was designed for melee combat and was armed with a powerful beam sword that resembles a modern fencing sword, and a small round shield that was also capable of launching a large number of floating mines. M'Quve, during his melee with Amuro, pilots the Gyan with a style reminiscent of fencing. Despite the Gyan's upper hand in melee combat the Gundam and Amuro prove to be too powerful and the suit is destroyed along with its pilot.

Gogg

MSM-03 Gogg

Acguy

Following Zimmand Company's Gogg, the Zeonic Company produced their own amphibious mobile suit for the Principality of Zeon, the MSM-04 Acguy. Acguys used many of the same parts and components as the Zaku II, including twin ultracompact fusion reactors. However, even with the twin reactors, the Acguy left only a trace heat signature, making it effective for stealth operations. Several Acguys were used on a covert mission to sneaked into the Federation's Jaburo General Headquarters and destroy the Federation's mobile suit production facilities, which were being used to produce their RGM-79 GM mobile suits.

Z'Gok

The MSM-07 Z'Gok is an amphibious mobile suit produced by the Principality of Zeon during the One Year War. Its design is similar to that of the Acguy, but is better armed. Its arms house beam weapons and are each tipped by three claws for melee combat. The head of the Z'Gok also fires projectiles. Notably, a team of Z'Goks attacks Jaburo during the main offensive with Char Aznable among them piloting one that is painted red.

Zock

The MSM-10 Zock makes its sole appearance during the assault on the Earth Federation's headquarters at Jaburo in Mobile Suit Gundam. It accompanies Char Aznable and his custom Z'Gok, as well as a small assault team of amphibious mobile suits. The Zock is a larger green suit armed with four beam weapons on both sides of its torso and one on its head. The Zock is destroyed during the Jaburo attack by Amuro Ray while covering Char's retreat.

Zeong

Mobile armours

Adzam

The MAX-03 Adzam is the first mobile armour to appear in Mobile Suit Gundam. Amuro first sees the Adzam as it transports M'Quve and Kycilia Zabi during an inspection of M'Quve's mining operations around Odessa. Amuro later engages the Adzam when he attacks one of the facilities with Gundam. The Adzam nearly disables Gundam, however, the operators underestimate Gundam's durability and end their attack thinking that suit is no longer operational. This allows Gundam to break free and destroy the Adzam, though M'Quve and Kycilia survived the encounter.

Grabro

The MAM-07 Grabro is an underwater mobile armour assigned to Char's "Mad Angler" submarine squadron. It attacks White Base as the ship crosses the Atlantic Ocean and inflicts heavy damage. It is eventually destroyed by Gundam during the attack.

Bigro

After White Base leaves Jaburo to act as a decoy for the Federal Fleet, it is soon attacked by a Zanzibar-class warship commanded by Char and supported by the MA-05 Bigro and two Rick Doms. The Bigro proves to be a difficult opponent for Sayla and Amuro. But after a quick conversion to Gundam, Amuro finally destroys the mobile armour.

Zakrello

The MA-04X Zakrello makes a very brief appearance following the destruction of Bigro. The Zakrello engages White Base's mobile suits in order to avenge the Bigro's fallen pilot, but is quickly dispatched by Amuro in the Gundam.

Braw Bro

MAN-03 Braw Bro

Elmeth

MAN-08 Elmeth. The Elmeth is the Newtype Mobile Armor piloted by Lalah Sune. It features a psy-commu control system and independent "bit" mega particle cannons that are quite deadly, as well as two mega particle cannons on the ship's main body, and is designed solely for space combat. Only a single Elmeth appears in the series, and is destroyed in combat with the Gundam.

Big Zam

This unit is often seen as the most powerful defensive unit in Mobile Suit Gundam. It is the only unit equipped with an I-field generator that can block off mega-particle cannon blasts, even those fired from warships. The time limit (20 minutes) on the I-Field generator before it overheats was not seen in the anime, but only in the official guide books, since it was destroyed by the series' protagonist team before then. Its weapons consist a of massive mega-particle cannon that can easily destroy large battleships, 28 smaller mega-particle cannons, missiles, two large caliber gun, and detachable claws on its legs used for destroying aircraft. The Big Zam only appears in the anime in a single episode under the control of Dozle Zabi who uses it as a distraction to allow more time for evacuations from Solomon. The Big Zam proves to be invincible against even the Gundam until its I-Field generator is disabled by a kamikaze attack from a core fighter. Despite its lack of appearances, it often appears in video games based on the series.
