The RGM-79S GM Spartan was created by Hitoshi Fukuchi for the Fukuchi Mobile Suit Station (FMS) feature in Bandai's Model Journal 119 (June 1989) magazine. 

Technology & Combat Characteristics

The GM Spartan was developed using the frame of the GM Command series, and is mainly for ground combat in the jungles of subtropical regions. It has added armor on the chest and shoulders as they are considered to be more exposed to enemy attacks, compared to the lower body which tends to be concealed by the trees. To compensate for the added weight, it has a backpack with higher thrust. As the added armor and higher thrust produced excellent results, similar measures are adopted for the RGM-79SP GM Sniper II that was developed later. In addition to weapons that emphasize anti-MS combat in close-range, the GM Spartan also has various equipment to improve concealment, such as infrared shielding sheets, Minovsky particle scattering pod, and smoke dischargers.
