Technical and Historical Notes

 

In the aftermath of the Delaz Fleet's Operation Stardust in UC 0083, the Earth Federation Forces create an elite task force called the Titans to subdue Zeon activities and Spacenoid rebellions. Since the Titans operate outside the jurisdiction of the Federation Forces, they produce their own mobile suits. Their first mobile suit is the RGM-79Q GM Quel, which is a variation of the RGM-79N GM Custom. The GM Quel is so similarly armed that one of the few differences is the characteristic black-and-blue paint scheme used by the Titans on several of their mobile suits. Another difference is that the GM Quel is designed for use in colonies, whereas most mobile suits are designed for use on Earth or in space. Its frame serves as the base for the RX-121 Gundam TR-1 [Hazel]. In addition, the GM Quel features a new arm design that later evolve into the movable frame concept utilized by the RX-178 Gundam Mk-II. Over time, the GM Quel becomes outdated and is replaced by newer designs, such as the RMS-179 GM II and the Mk-II.
