The RX-79 [G] Gundam Ground Type was one of the early prototypes for the Earth Federation’s mobile suit mass production plan, produced in limited numbers before the recovery of the RX-78-2 Gundam’s combat data. As its name suggests, it was designed solely with ground combat in mind, and all space-use equipment, as well as the Core Block System, were omitted. This caused the Gundam Ground Type to be lighter, allowing it to rival the performance of the RX-78 while under gravity.
The development of the Gundam Ground Type was led by the Earth Federation Ground Force (E.F.G.F), and in total, 20 units were produced. The E.F.F Far Eastern Front Army established the 1st Mechanized Composite Battalion (colloquially known as “Kojima Battalion”, after its commander, Lieutenant Colonel Kojima) to counter Zeon Earth Attack Force’s Central Asian Front Army. Since they were based in Southeast Asia, a fiercely contested area, 12 of the 20 units were assigned to the 01st, 04th, 06th, and 08th MS Teams of the Kojima Battalion.
