Technology & Combat Characteristics

The GM Raid is an assault mobile suit developed at the Gymnasion II space colony based on the RGM-79C GM Type C for the Shadows special forces unit. It is equipped with enhanced thrusters in response to increased armament. A variant of the GM Raid, the RGM-79CA GM Raid Light, is used by regular forces.

Armaments

  • 60mm Vulcan Gun
A standard armament of the Earth Federation Forces's MS is a pair of head-mounted 60mm vulcan guns. These shell firing weapons have a high rate of fire but little power, and can't damage the thick armor of a MS. However, they can damage lightly armored areas such as the sensors and are ideal for shooting down small, lightly armored targets such as missiles, attack vehicles, etc.
  • Beam Saber
A handheld close combat beam weapon, it is a small cylindrical device that houses a rechargeable energy capacitor like that of a beam rifle, and the stored Minovsky particles are released to form a lethal energy blade. The beam saber is capable of cutting through any armor not treated with anti-beam coating.
  • 3-tube Missile Pod
A 3-tube missile pod is mounted on each leg.
  • Franz EF-ASH114T Assault Shotgun
A handheld shell firing weapon meant for use against high-speed target. Has a high rate of fire and the magazine can be changed easily.
  • AE/ZIM.HD Type-2 Heat Dagger
Beside the beam saber, the GM Raid carries another CQC weapon in the form of a large heat dagger. The dagger's heated blade can melt the enemies' armor on contact. This weapon is a combination of federation and zeonic technology.
  • AE/ZIM.C-Main-0011-F Chain Mine
The AE/ZIM.C-Main-0011-F chain mine consisted of 10 disc-shaped mines connected to each other by flexible cable. Each mine had magnetic claws on its underside, allowing it to be attached to objects. The chain mine could be thrown out like grenades one by one, laid on the ground or fixed to a building as a mine, or attached to a single enemy and detonated. The chain mine has been improved so that it can be carried on the backpack.
  • Spike Shield
A spike shield is a defensive armament composed of a thick shaped sheet of armor with several spike protrusions. Any shield can be used as a bludgeon in melee combat, but the addition of the spikes increases the damage the enemy mobile suit will receive.
