Technical and Historical Notes

Appearing in the final portion of the One Year War, the RGM-79C GM Type C was an improved version of one of the Earth Federation Forces’ first mass production mobile suits, the RGM-79[E] GM Early Type. Though it was similar to the original Early Type in its armament and abilities, it featured greatly improved thruster acceleration and maneuverability. The Type C remained the standard mass production frontline unit for the EFF until the introduction of the RMS-179 GM II several years later. After Operation Stardust, the Titans created a variant unit, the RGM-79CR GM Type CR, which was further modified into the RGM-79SR GM Sniper III.
