Technical and Historical Notes

 

The RGM-79V GM Night Seeker is a mobile suit created for special forces teams conducting surprise attack operations. The Night Seeker is equipped with extra sensors in its head and additional thrusters in its chest and on its back for landing and increased mobility. The Night Seeker's armaments are the same as the standard RGM-79 GM. The initial production run of 12 Night Seeker units is created by modifying existing GMs. A total of 88 units are created as the result of two additional production runs. The Earth Federation Forces also create the RGM-79LV GM Night Seeker II, based on the RGM-79L GM Light Armor. The Night Seeker II is modified to allow the extra thrusters to be detached via explosive bolts, and this feature is backported to the original Night Seeker. Several Night Seekers are attached to the 033rd Company with the mission of recapturing military bases from the Zeon. The Night Seekers are transported by air via the CB-X5(SGT) Assault Type Gunperry, which is escorted by FF-6 TIN Cods and Depp Rogs. After the Night Seekers take out the enemy defenses, Depp Rogs conduct a bombing run, followed by regular GMs performing mop up duty of enemy forces. In UC 0090, an RGM-86R GM III unit modified with Night Seeker parts is piloted by "Vasuki," a pseudonym for former Titans pilot Yazan Gable.
