Technical and Historical Notes

 

An update to the Earth Federation Forces' original mass production mobile suit, the RGM-79 GM, the RMS-179 (RGM-79R) GM II goes into service in the early UC 0080s, replacing the older GM as the mainstay front line mobile suit. Operated by the Federation Forces and the upstart Anti-Earth Union Group, the GM II is commonly used during the early days of the Gryps Conflict in UC 0087. The GM II's dual model numbers refer to its two production types: units designated RGM-79R are upgraded GM frames, whereas units designated RMS-179 are newly constructed. The GM II's updated design features a higher-output generator, slightly improved thrusters and acceleration, and the new cockpit design standard, the 360-degree panoramic monitor with linear control seat. Despite these upgrades, for its day and time the GM II is little better than the original GM when compared to the more powerful prototype and limited production mobile suits being fielded during the war. The obsolete nature of the GM II eventually leads to its replacement by more modern units, including its successor, the RGM-86R GM III. However, despite its obsolescence, the GM II continues to serve alongside its successor as late as UC 0096, when Zeon remnants attack the Federation capital Dakar and Australia's Torrington Base.
