Technical and Historical Notes

The RX-79[G]SW Slave Wraith was a customized mobile suit based on the RX-79[G] Gundam Ground Type and named for the Earth Federation Forces unit it was assigned to. The Slave Wraith’s sensors, optical cameras and communications equipment were upgraded from the standard RX-79[G] and it incorporated developmental technologies that were later utilized in later EFF suits, including a backpack used by the RGM-79C GM Type C, a head used by the RGM-79SC GM Sniper Custom and the antenna mounted on the RX-79[G]Ez-8 Gundam Ez8. The Slave Wraith’s armaments included a vulcan gun, a multi-launcher that could load various types of ammo, two beam sabers, a beam rifle, a machine gun, a short shield and a rocket launcher. After being damaged in combat, the Slave Wraith was repaired and upgraded into the RX-79[G]WR Full Armor Slave Wraith.
