Mobile Suit Gundam Wing Endless Waltz OZ-00MS
The OZ-00MS Tallgeese (aka Tallgeese) is the first in a line of three mobile suits depicted in the Mobile Suit Gundam Wing????series. In the anime, it is stated that the first Tallgeese was the original armed mobile suit, and is the common ancestor of both the Gundams (specifically their prototype, the XXXG-00W0 Wing Gundam Zero) and the mass-produced military mobile suits (most notably the????OZ-06MS Leo and its variants) depicted. It was first test piloted after its restoration by an OZ soldier named Otto, and later by its most prominent pilot, Zechs Merquise.
Designed by the Gundam Scientists, the Tallgeese was a well rounded unit featuring both long range and melee weapons, and also heavy armor coupled with high power boosters. The suit features powerful "Super Vernier" boosters that are capable of producing acceleration of about 15 Gs, but they also put a lot of strain on the pilot. To solve this problem and reduce production costs, the Tallgeese's design was simplified to create the Leo. After Zechs defected from OZ, Mike Howard, one of the original designers of the Tallgeese, equipped the suit with a large detachable booster unit that allows it to escape the Earth's atmosphere.
