Technology & Characteristics
Although the RCX-76-02 Guncannon First Type was defeated by Principality of Zeon's mobile suits in the Battle of Mare Smythii. Cannon-type mobile suits were found useful as a intermediate-range support, and development continued after the battle. The GM Cannon was equipped with a 360mm rocket gun and was deployed in the North American and the African fronts. A portion of the GM Cannons were sent into space and were improved into the space assault type RGC-80S. The split leg armor which had been mounted as a counterweight for the 360mm rocket gun was removed, and the suit was fitted with the RGM-79SC GM Sniper Custom's leg sub-thrusters instead.
