Technical and Historical Notes

In the aftermath of the Delaz Fleet’s Operation Stardust in UC 0083, the Earth Federation Forces created an elite task force called the Titans to subdue Zeon activities and Spacenoid rebellions. Since the Titans operated outside the jurisdiction of the EFF, they produce their own mobile suits. Their first mobile suit was the RGM-79Q GM Quel, which was a variation of the RGM-79N GM Custom. The GM Quel was so similarly armed that one of the few differences was the characteristic black-and-blue paint scheme used by the Titans on several of their mobile suits. Another difference was that the GM Quel was designed for use in colonies, whereas most mobile suits were designed for use on Earth or in space. Its frame served as the base for the RX-121 Gundam TR-1 [Hazel]. In addition, the GM Quel featured a new arm design that later evolved into the movable frame concept utilized by the RX-178 Gundam Mk-II. Over time, the GM Quel became outdated and was replaced by newer designs, such as the RMS-179 GM II and the Mk-II.
