The GM Guard Custom is a minor change variation of the GM Sniper Custom developed by the Earth Federation during the final stages of the One Year War. It has enhanced defensive capabilities as it was developed primarily to defend allied units, and to guard the fleet as well as various military facilities. Thanks to the use of the GM Sniper Custom as the base machine, the GM Guard Custom is able to maintain high mobility yet have high defensive abilities thanks to its huge shield - the "Guardian Shield".
During combat, a movable visor on the head would be lowered, and it is equipped with composite sensor system. The high performance of the GM Guard Custom resulted in it being difficult to pilot, thus it is mainly piloted by skilled mobile suit pilots. This also contributed to many of the GM Guard Customs surviving the war.
