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-79GS GM Command Space, a specialized space combat version of the RGM-79G GM Command developed for colony defense. While quite similar to the standard GM Command, the Space type mounted an enhanced backpack equipped with more maneuvering verniers and more powerful rocket thrusters. By removing equipment not needed in a zero-g environment, more internal space was freed up in the Space type, allowing it to be equipped with additional verniers and larger fuel propellant tanks. However, due to its high cost, the Space type only appeared in limited quantities near the end of the war, with two units assigned to the Scarlet team stationed aboard the assault carrier Gray Phantom.
