Please note that this is the Gundam Wiki's article on the mobile suit featured in Mobile Suit Variations; if you are looking for the article on RGC-80S GM Cannon Space Assault Type featured in Mobile Suit Discovery then you should head to RGC-80S GM Cannon (Space Assault Type).
The RGC-80S GM Cannon Space Assault Type is a variant of the RGC-80 GM Cannon, and first featured in the original design series MSV-R: The Return of Johnny Ridden.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

To make the RGC-80 GM Cannon more suitable for space combat, the Earth Federation developed the RGC-80S GM Cannon Space Assault Type. The GM Cannon Space Assault Type omitted the increased armor on the legs which was necessary for weight when the shoulder rocket cannon was fired on the ground, and it also has the same vernier thrusters as the RGM-79SC GM Sniper Custom on its backpack and legs, resulting in improved attitude control capabilities and mobility in space.

Armaments

  • 360mm Rocket Cannon
Mounted over the right shoulder, this artillery cannon is for mid-range fire support. The cannon is clip-fed, with a spare clip mounted on the rear waist armor.
  • 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 it can damage lightly armored areas such as the sensors. They are ideal for shooting down small, lightly armored targets such as missiles, small attack vehicles, etc.
  • BR-M-79C-1 Beam Spray Gun
A handheld mega-particle gun with a lower focusing rate than a beam rifle and short range. The beam spray gun features three different firing modes: a basic single shot mode, a burst shot mode for area suppression, and a range shot mode that scatters the beam to cause damage over a wide area. Output 1.4 MW.
  • Balzac type 380mm Rocket Bazooka
An optional MS-use Bazooka developed for the GM Series, besides having enhanced accuracy due to the sensor mounted on top of the weapon, it is also lightweight, easy to use and has high shooting performance.
  • FADEGEL RGM-M-Sh-003 Shield
A basic defense armament for many Federation mobile suits, it is composed of a triple honeycomb structure made of Luna Titanium. With the appearance of beam weaponry equipped Zeon mobile suits late in the One Year War, later model of this shield is treated with the recently developed beam coating. The shield can also serve as a weapon container as its back has specialized weapon latches for mounting various weaponry, allowing spare beam sabers and beam spray guns to be carried.

History

As the Earth Federation approved the RGC-80 GM Cannon for mass-production and to be distributed to various Earth Federation battalions on Earth, it also sent more agile and better equipped GM Cannon Space Assault Type into space to assist the Federation Space Forces. The GM Cannon Space Assault Types are used by ace pilots who fought in Operation Star One, and at A Baoa Qu, five of six mobile suits were destroyed.
