This transformable mobile suit is part of the Gaza series developed by the Zeon remnants based at the asteroid Axis. After the completion of the AMX-003 Gaza C, the Axis forces begin developing new machines with higher performance and more specialized capabilities. The Gaza E is developed simultaneously with the AMX-008 Ga Zowmn, but where the Ga Zowmn is designed for higher fighting strength in mobile suit form, the Gaza E emphasizes cruising performance in mobile armor form. The mobile armor form of the Gaza E can even fly in atmosphere while carrying another mobile suit on its back, thus functioning as a sub flight system along the lines of the Base Jabber or the Dodai series.

Because the Gaza E is designed to operate mainly in mobile armor form, its handheld armament is limited to a projectile-firing bazooka. The large binders on its shoulders are equipped with missile pods and powerful beam cannons, giving it high firepower in both mobile suit and mobile armor forms.

Due to its relatively high cost, which is twice that of a Gaza C, the Gaza E is produced only in limited numbers. A handful of these machines are deployed by the space battleship Gwaley to protect the New Desides as they escape from Ayers City on March 28, U.C. 0088. There are also reports that at least one Gaza E is present aboard the space battleship Gwadan during the final stages of the Gryps Conflict.
