The RX-79[GS]Gundam Ground Type S is a mobile suit from the Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt ONA series. In the manga, it is known as RX-79 [G] Gundam Ground Type.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

Developed by the Earth Federation Forces in the latter half of the One Year War, the Gundam Ground Type continues to be deployed after the war.[1] An example is the Gundam Ground Type S, which is named as such as it is a Gundam Ground Type deployed exclusively on the Spartan.[1] The suit is a remodelled, ground use version of the RGM-79/GH Gundam Head which was used in the battle of A Baoa Qu.[2] Its Gundam-like head is meant to replicate the psychological impact that the famous Gundam had on the Zeon forces.[1]

Although the head has no V-shaped antenna, its sensing performance is improved due to the addition of sensors.[1] To adapt to ground use, the shoulder thrusters are removed, a new backpack was installed and changes are made to the chest and feet.[1] The new backpack is smaller, with three thrusters on each sides for improved mobility, and also has a pair of sub-arms for holding weapons, such as shields.[1] Armaments used by the suit includes a beam rifle, a pair of beam sabers that double as beam javelins and a shield.[1][2]
