Technical and Historical Notes

 

As the Earth Federation Forces rebuilds its military power in the years following the One Year War, it uses existing units to serve as testbeds for developing technologies to be incorporated into new mobile suit designs. One such unit is the RGM-79 Powered GM, a heavily-modified suit built to test parts and systems for the Gundam Development Project. It mounts a heavy, powerful backpack that provides it with incredible thrust and acceleration, and is equipped with improved shock absorbers in the legs. The control systems for the backpack and other improvements are placed in external "boxes" on the Powered GM's armor, making it appear more heavily armored than it actually is. One Powered GM undergoing testing at Australia's Torrington Base in late UC 0083 is destroyed in pursuit of the stolen RX-78GP02A Gundam GP02A Physalis.
