Technical and Historical Notes

 

As the Earth Federation Forces begins its mobile suit forces buildup during the last months of the One Year War, it also launches an intensive training program, retraining fighter pilots to handle the new machines. To fulfill this task, a two-seat trainer variant of the standard RGM-79 GM is produced. With the trainee pilot sitting in the standard cockpit, the instructor pilot sits in another seat above his, equipped with a small window. The GM Trainer mimics the standard GM in almost every respect, although it's built with weaker armor to reduce its cost. Since its cheap armor makes it unsuitable for combat, the GM Trainer is also relegated to engineering and construction duties.
