Please note that this is the Gundam Wiki's article on the mobile suit from Mobile Suit Discovery; if you are looking for the article on the mobile suit from M-MSV then you should head to RAG-79-G1 Gundam Marine Type.
The RAG-79-G1 Gundam Marine Type (RAG-79-G1 水中型ガンダム Āru Ē Jī Nanajūkyū Jī Ichi Suichū-gata Gandamu?, lit. Underwater Type Gundam), also known as the Gundiver (ガンダイバー Gandaibā?), is a prototype amphibious mobile suit featured in Mobile Suit Discovery and the Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin MSD: Cucuruz Doan's Island manga. It was developed from the RAG-79 Aqua GM and the RX-78-01[N] Gundam Local Type [1][2]. During the One Year War, the Earth Federation Navy used the Gundam Marine Type in the Black Sea [3][2].

Technology & Combat Characteristics

The RAG-79-G1 was a re-designed Aqua GM. The machine body was tuned for use by an ace pilot. It also incorporated design data from the Gundam Local Type, and because its head was designed to resemble that of the Local Type, it too became commonly known as a "Gundam" [2].


  • Underwater-Use Beam Rifle
A deflection-beam rifle (偏向ビーム・ライフル?) [2]. Presumed for underwater use, this specialized marine type rifle has a barrel with a shape that allows it to focus the beam precisely, there's also a removable rifle cover [4].
  • Beam Pick
Among the Gundiver's weapons that are designed for use in the water are its Beam Picks (ビーム・ピック?) [2]. Beam Picks are like Beam Sabers but with a shorter blade and the Gundiver has two Beam Picks that can be stored on its right waist [4].
  • Harpoon Gun
The left arm is equipped with an Explosive Harpoon Gun (炸裂式ハープーン?), which shoots out an explosive harpoon [2]. The Harpoon Gun can be removed from the arm and used as a handheld weapon [4].
  • Hand Anchor
The right arm is equipped with a Hand Anchor that the Gundiver can shoot [4].


One Year War

RAG-79-G1 MSM-03 MSG-O Doan-3

Gundiver and Gogg

In U.C. 0079, mid-October, on a day of foggy darkness, there had been an overwhelming difference in the number of Zeon and Earth Federation troops. It would only be a matter of time before Federation troops would break through the Bosphorus Strait, the entrance to the Black Sea. From underwater, "Gundam" type mobile suits had attacked [3].

After Zeon troops defended Odessa near the Bosphorus, a recording of the Gundam Marine Type was left behind [2].



Notes & Trivia

  • Key differences to its M-MSV counterpart include an abdomen section with three ridges instead of a depression and a V-Fin crest separate from the forehead camera (much like the RX-78 series).
