In C.E. 65, ZAFT revolutionized modern warfare with the creation of the mobile suit. Developed in secret, the YMF-01B Proto GINN was a humanoid mobile weapon, in contrast to the mobile armors and fighter jets used by the Earth Alliance. As the prototype of the final production model, the ZGMF-1017 GINN, the Proto GINN had fewer thrusters and overall lower speed. After production began on the standard GINN, the aging Proto GINN was re-designated as the ZGMT-01 GINN Trainer. In its new role, the GINN Trainer served as the first mobile suit used by ZAFT pilot trainees.
