RGM-79G Ground Type Gundam
The RGM-79G Ground Type Gundam is a mass-produced front line combat mobile suit.
About this creation
















The North American Republic's ongoing wars in the African and Asian theaters has placed a significant strain on the military's ability to produce and maintain mobile weapons platforms in a cost effective way. Seeking to remedy this situation, the NAR contracted General Dynamics to create a 'ground-type mobile suit' for earthbound combat situation.

The result was far more successful than anyone anticipated. The RGM-79G was a low-cost, high-performance mobile suit that lent itself well to field performance and maintenance. With the ability to field a variety of different weapons systems, the RGM-79G all but removed the need for task-specific mobile suits.

However, despite the platform's flexibility, most of the RGM-79G's are fielded with a 20mm 'Zephyr' assault rifle and a beam saber for melee combat. Additionally, the vast majority of RGM-79G's utilize the Sonya Electronics Standard Battlefield Imaging Suite (SBIS). However, in some roles they are refitted for a Greeneye Tactical Imaging Suite.

RGM-79G variants are currently deployed in all active combat theaters, and most likely will be for the foreseeable future.

Quoting joshua vance are you sure this isn't the gm? and the ground type had a blue chest nice build anyway.
It really should have a GM in the designation as well, but I left it out because it was getting unwieldy and long, and anybody who noticed would know what it was anyways. The Ground Types actually can have different color schemes, see the reference: http://gundam.wikia.com/wiki/RGM-79(G)_GM_Ground_Type Thanks for your comment!
