It's blood in the sense of bloodline, but that also includes matrimonial
kin, so in that sense it's the sept (clan or tribe) or kin (stock or breed)
of the Zeon nation. I'd translate it as "House of Zeon".

I can't find it now, but one of my recently acquired reference books gave
it as "M'Quvie" -- maybe that's going to be the official Romanization now.

This is usually rendered as "Acguy" and the standard model has a 6-tube
rocket launcher in place of its left hand and is otherwise equipped with
four 105mm Vulcan guns and a mega-particle cannon (also in the left arm, as
I recall). A retcon of the MSM-04 Acguy recently appeared in O8th MS Team.
 The MSM-04M model is from the MS-X line and is equipped with four heat
rods (two on each hand) and two 105mm Vulcan guns.

That's the Gasshia from the MS-X line and the weapon's called a hammergun.
The MS-13 Gasshia is also equipped with two 180mm quad missile launchers
for a total of eight 180mm missiles.
