Beam Saber

An ultra-high heat melee weapon often incorporated on the mobile suits of the  Earth Federation. A blade which releases minovsky particles into an encompassing I-field to retain its shape. When the I-field is broken,  the minovsky particles spew out at an instant, easily severing a mobile suit's armor.

Although canonically the beam saber is far superior to the heat hawk, in Gundam Battle Operation this weapon isn't necessarily any more powerful than the Heat hawk of the Zeon forces, it does have more length though, making it a more safe melee weapon. When fighting against Zeon mobile suits abuse the extra length of the beam sabers to have an extra edge in melee combat.
