Technical and Historical Notes

 

The RX-79[GS] Gundam Ground Type-S is ground use version of the space combat RGM-79/GH Gundam Head deployed at the end of the One Year War. The Type S uses a different shoulder and foot design and a smaller backpack, although the sub-arm feature from the Gundam Head has been retained. The Type-S' name denotes that the suit is deployed to the assault carrier Spartan. The Type-S’ armaments include two beam sabers (which also function as javelins), a shield and a beam rifle. In August UC 0080, the three Type-S units assigned to the Spartan defend the ship when it comes under attack from the breakaway South Seas Alliance on Earth.
