Technical and Historical Notes

While the Strategic Naval Research Institute is proceeding with its “Formula Project” to develop smaller, more efficient and high-performance mobile suits for the Earth Federation Forces, civilian contractor Anaheim Electronics was also hard at work on its own smaller, next-generation mobile suit. Their first successful result in this venture was the RGM-109 Heavygun, a mass-produced general purpose unit intended to replace the aging RGM-89J Jegan Type J. Despite its small size and the fact that its reactor output wasn’t much greater than the old Jegan Type J, the Heavygun was faster and more maneuverable, and still just as capable of using beam weapons as its larger predecessors. The Heavygun proved itself to be a popular machine, and it remained in the service of the EFF for many years, with some units even making their way into civilian and local colony militia forces.
