Technical and Historical Notes

 

Having received a powerful shock from the all-range attacks of the Principality of Zeon's Newtype mobile armors, the Earth Federation Forces develop the RGM-79ARA (RGM-79X-PT) GM Juggler in order to carry out such attacks using their own technology. Since the Federation Forces are far behind in their Newtype research and are unable to develop a psycommu system, they ultimately use existing machines to develop an imitation of the enemy's guided remote attacks. Thus the "Newtype test" description attached to this machine is essentially a bluff. The RGM-79 GM is used as the base machine, and modified RB-79 Balls as attack units. With the gunner of this two-seater machine using laser communication to manually control the attack units, it can perform a makeshift imitation of the all-range attack. Since the base machine must limit its movement while the attack units are in operation, it compensates with additional armor to raise its defensive strength. However, the fighting strength of its manually controlled all-range attack is far from satisfactory, and the mechanical balance of the base machine is also poor. Repeated improvements are made in an effort to overcome these flaws, and this difficult development process continues until the end of the war. A prototype version has yet to be completed by the time the war ends and the Federation Forces obtain the latest psycommu technology. The so-called "Juggler" is now worthless, and its development is soon halted.
