Technical and Historical Notes

The GM Camouf was an infiltration mobile suit used by the Principality of Zeon during the One Year War in UC 0079. The introduction of Minovsky particles into warfare limited the effectiveness of radar and forced militaries to rely on short-range visual identification. As a result, Zeon designed the exterior of the GM Camouf to resemble the Earth Federation Forces’ RGM-79 GM. The GM Camouf’s role was to infiltrate EFF-controlled space and launch attacks on unsuspecting targets who would mistake it for a friendly unit. The GM Camouf was equipped with Zeon weapons, including a 120mm machine gun, a bazooka, a 135mm anti-ship rifle, sturm fausts, and anti-ship charge explosives. Additionally, it mounted a blocky shield that was a facsimile of the GM’s shield. After the EFF captured Zeon’s space fortress Solomon in December UC 0079, The Zeon conducted infiltration operations with several GM Camoufs, which resulted in the successful destruction of several EFF Columbus supply ships and Salamis cruisers. However, the GM Camouf’s deception proved too effective, as pilot Emma Reich was killed by friendly fire after being misidentified by a Musai cruiser. As a result, GM Camoufs were relegated to use by volunteers on Earth, and all official records on the suit were deleted.
