Technical and Historical Notes

Introduced in the early UC 0090s, the RGM-89 Jegan soon becomes the Earth Federation Forces’ main frontline mass production mobile suit. But as the Federation slipped into stagnation, the advent of new mobile suit technology would not be actively pursued for almost three decades. Over the years, the old Jegans were constantly overhauled and upgraded to keep them in service. One of the many revised Jegan forms still being used during the Crossbone Vanguard invasion in UC 0123 was the RGM-89R Jegan Type R. The Type R was considered the fastest and most maneuverable of the Jegan series, and it was often piloted by squadron leaders. However, the Type R was still outmatched by the smaller and faster new mobile suits fielded by the Crossbone Vanguard.
