MG 1/100 GM Command [Colony Type]
GM Command [Colony Type] MG 1/100
The????RGM-79G GM Command????is an improved version of the????RGM-79 GM????built by the????Earth Federation Forces. It is featured in the anime mini-series????Mobile Suit Gundam 0080: War in the Pocket.
The GM Command was one of the late production type GM units deployed in the????One Year War, and called the "Colony Type" as it specialized in defending bases in space colonies and surrounding areas. For this reason, its output and weaponry have been adjusted to reduce fatal damage to the colony's structure and walls.????The suit was also used to collect data for the development of next generation mass production models. Specifications wise, the GM Command is said to be a match for the Zeon's????MS-14A Gelgoog, but as many of the machines were deployed to areas outside of the main battlefield that had low urgency, its functions were often suppressed and it could not display its full potential.
Due to the accumulation of manufacturing and designing knowledge, the GM Command's maintainability and operability was greatly improved compared to the very first mass production models that had inconsistent standards. Unlike the normal GM, the GM Command has additional sensors such as environment monitoring sensors to thoroughly detect human presence/survivability, and this boosts the suit's anti-personnel and anti-material evasive capabilities. The suit's generator output is increased, and accompanying this, intakes and ducts are added to enhance cooling functions. Communication capabilities are also enhanced via the shoulder antenna, which also helps to prevent interferences or jamming caused by frequency bands used by civilians inside and outside of colonies.????Lastly, based on simulations of operation within colonies, the placements of the thruster verniers on the GM Command's backpack are optimized and various sensors are added, replacing the normal GM's backpack beam saber rack.
It was relatively easy to change the GM Command's armor, backpack, and other parts; furthermore, its specifications can also be changed with little modification to the base structures.????The suit served as the base for the????RGM-79SP GM Sniper II, and a space-use version also exist in the form of the????RGM-79GS GM Command Space Type. As the GM Command was deployed as replenishment units during the war, only a small number were produced. However, there were cases where the suit was supplied on a platoon scale, leading to a considerable number of operational units in total.
