The RX-79[G]Ez-8/HMC Gundam Ez8 High Mobility Custom was an Earth Federation Forces custom mobile suit. Based on the RX-79[G]Ez-8 Gundam Ez8 used by Shiro Amada, it was remodeled for space use with an emphasis on mobility. In order to adapt what was originally a land warfare machine for space combat, each part of the machine was heavily modified, and even its external appearance was quite different from that of the base machine. Part of its armor was removed to reduce its weight, and movable vernier units were also installed on its back. As a result, it achieved extraordinary mobility for a hastily constructed mobile suit, but this came at the cost of relatively low defensive strength. And since most of its generator output was dedicated to propulsion, its main armament consisted of a modified beam spray gun, vulcan guns and beam sabers, so its firepower was similar to that of a mass production model. With its extreme performance balance, this mobile suit was as unmanageable as a wild horse in the hands of anyone but a skilled pilot.
