Technical and Historical Notes

The units which made up the Titans could be divided into two major categories. In one category were the regular Titans units comprised of Earthnoid officers, and in the other, temporary Titans units made up of ordinary Earth Federation Forces conscripted according to the scale and requirements of the operation. This RGM-79 GM Quel belonged to one of the latter, and was assigned to an ordinary unit from the Confeito forces when it was conscripted by the Titans. When ordinary units were conscripted into the Titans, they normally continued using their existing machines, but on this occasion the pilots were supplied with the GM Quel used by regular Titans units in order to raise the “quality” of the overall force. However, because the Titans leadership was uncomfortable with ordinary soldiers using black machines, the mobile suits were painted in red and white EFF colors. Because the Confeito forces version was intended for use under the command of the Titans Test Team, it was equipped with the same beam rifle and energy pack holders.
