RGM-79-GM Profile by zeiram0034 RGM-79-GM Profile by zeiram0034
Not initially taking the threat of "mobile suits" seriously, the Earth Federation Forces are a latecomer during the One Year War when it comes to the development and production of its own mobile suits to counter the Principality of Zeon. Based on combat data from the RX-78-2 Gundam's "learning computer" system and experimental GM-type units such as the RGM-79[E] GM Precession Type, the Federation's first true mass-production unit is simply named the RGM-79 GM. The production-model GM is basically a simplified version of the original Gundam, eliminating some of the more complex and expensive features - such as the Core Block System and using normal titanium alloy armor instead of lunar titanium - to make its production faster and more economical. The GM only carries one beam saber instead of two, and has optional hand armaments of either a 100mm machine gun or a short-range - but highly effective - beam spray gun.

Though the first GM units aren't available until November UC 0079, the Federation's material and manufacturing superiority allows it to quickly catch up, fielding enough units in time to retake contested areas on Earth and to participate in the Federation's Operation Star One offensive on Zeon's space front. With the Federation Forces already on the offensive, the introduction of the GM units to the front lines assures their victory - and descendants of the GM line continue to serve the Federation Forces for at least the next fifteen years.

Well, consider that the GM came it late in the war. Probably made sense.

I'd like to see some more members of the GM family, such as the GM Kai...

Anyways, this is very well done!

The Vanilla GM has always been an old favorite of mine. I enjoy kicking some but with one in a game once and a while

The original GM is always a classic though I would have to say I really love some of the variant designs such as the ground type or GM cannon. (which I'll be drawing up as well ^^ )

The GM Cannon is pretty cool. In the future I'm planning on building a Gunpla kitbash using parts from a RGC-80 GM Cannon, GM Sniper Custom, MS-06 Zaku II and RX-78-2 Gundam

It may stand for Refined Gundam Mass production, or Refined Gundam Model.

Im not entirely certain what the RGM stands for but I belive GM stands for either Gundam mass production type or General model. Again not entirely certain but hope that helps ^^;

The term GM may stand for a number of things. Gundam Mobile, Ground Mobile, Robotic Ground Mobile, Gun-Man, Gundam Mass-production, ETC. I remember finding some good info on a 4chan message board about it a while back. But I didn't save the data on it sad to say

I THINK it might stand for Ground Mech.

Though I could be entirely wrong, I haven't watched original Gundam in years.
