Technical and Historical Notes

 

During the Gryps Conflict raging in UC 0087, the Earth Federation Forces decide to develop new mass production mobile suit models to replace its aging RGM-79R GM IIs and the high cost/low production variable mobile suits and mobile armor being tested in the field. One proposed replacement model is the RMS-154 Barzam, based loosely on the RX-178 Gundam Mk-II. Designed as a high performance/low cost general purpose unit, the Barzam possesses its own exclusive beam rifle, although it can be outfitted with the Mk-II's optional double vulcan pod, as well as weapons from the GM II, RMS-106 Hi-Zack, and RMS-108 Marasai. However, due to the fact that the Barzam does not possess any "special" or "unique" weapons, it is deemed too "ordinary" and only sees limited production, never replacing the GM II as intended. Despite this, the Federation does create a limited production variant unit, the RMS-154 Barzam (Refined Type).
