In the last weeks of the One Year War, the Earth Federation Forces refined its mobile suit manufacturing processes and developed several variants of its standard RGM-79 GM. One such variant was the RGM-79G GM Command, developed primarily for colony defense. Built on a somewhat different body type and frame, the GM Command also featured thruster acceleration and maneuverability superior to the standard GM. However, due to its high cost, the GM Command only appeared in limited quantities near the end of the war, with several units assigned as defense for a top secret EFF research base on the neutral Side 6 Libot Colony.
