The Earth Federation Forces contracted with Anaheim Electronics to develop a successor to the long-running RGM line of mass production mobile suits. This combination of the EFF’s expertise with the RGM series and Anaheim’s development technology produced the prototype RGM-88X Jeda, which was later followed by the improved mass production RGM-89 Jegan. Although not as fast or well-armed as the previous RGM-86R GM III, the Jegan was an all-around well-performing unit nonetheless. The Jegan mounted a fairly standard variety of weapons, armed with a beam rifle, a beam saber, shield-mounted missile launchers, three hand grenades and an optional head vulcan gun pod. Though initially built by Anaheim Electronics exclusively for the Londo Bell task force prior to the outbreak of the Second Neo Zeon War in UC 0093, the Jegan (and many of its variants) soon became an EFF standard, operating as its primary frontline unit for at least the next thirty years. The Jegan line was rendered obsolete in the UC 0120s by the introduction of smaller, more agile mobile suits developed by the Crossbone Vanguard.
