The Gefangener GM (also known as the Captured GM) is a mobile suit that first appeared in MS Era 0099– Mobile Suit Gundam 0001-0080.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

GMs that were captured by Zeon, would typically use Zeon manufactured weaponry such as the MS-06 Zaku II's 120mm Machine Gun. These units would usually be repainted into a new color scheme and featured the Zeon emblem on one of their shoulders or shield, to help distinguish them from the Federation GMs.

Armaments

  • 60mm Vulcan Gun
These shell firing weapons have high-rate of fire but little power and can't damage the thick armor of a mobile suit, though they can damage lightly armored areas such as the sensors. They are ideal for shooting down small, lightly armored targets such as missiles, attack vehicles, etc.
  • 120mm Machine Gun
A standard weapon for Zaku type mobile suits. It is a shell firing gun that does not require energy to be used, however its effectiveness against heavy armor is very limited. This model used a 100-round drum magazine.
  • 120mm Assault Rifle
A new model assault rifle that appears to be an upgrade of the MMP-78 machine gun.
  • MMP-80/90mm Ver.8 Machine Gun
An alternative to the 120mm Machine Gun. It used 90mm bullets instead of 120mm type, allowing for a greater firing speed and better penetration capabilities. The machine gun is magazine-fed with 32 rounds per mag.
  • FADEGEL RGM-M-Sh-003 Shield
A basic defense armament for the Federation's GM series. It is composed of a triple honeycomb structure made of Luna Titanium and the surface also has anti-beam coating for defending against beam attacks.

History

Zeon had used captured RGM-79 GMs for false flag tactics and operations. Officially, these captured GMs were called Gefangener GMs (Gefangener being a German word meaning "prisoner" or "captive").[1] These captured GMs were also used for performance research. In U.C. 0081 one unit would be piloted by Invisible Knights member Ailos Bade, who would use it in the MS-08TX/N Efreet Nacht recapture mission.
