The RGM-196 Freedom is a mass-produced mobile suit from the live-action television movie G-Saviour, set in the Universal Century timeline.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

A successor of the long RGM-79 GM line, the Freedom model is a completely outdated mobile suit formerly used by the Earth Federation before it was dissolved. Compared to CONSENT's CCMS-03 Bugu, the Freedom's MPC-2 handplug system is only compatible with old handheld weapons and doesn't support beam rifles. While it has a beam shield listed as one of its armaments, it is usually armed with only a conventional solid shield. In the movie, a few models of the Freedom have a blue left shoulder. What the meaning of this remains unknown, although it may denote a commander or ace pilot status. The Freedom is also the prototype of the F Saviour, the sixth unit of the Saviour Series.

History

A mobile suit created during the end of the Earth Federation, the Freedom is well over three decades old by the time of G-Saviour. Although it used to be a military unit, it was used by the Side colonies for self-protection and construction. It is only seen when CONSENT forces led by General Garneaux attack Side 8. However the outdated mobile suits are no match for the CONSENT Mobile Suits, the Bugus and MW-Rais.

One Freedom, piloted by Franz Dieter, was severely damaged and crashed on one of the colony's solar panels. He and the other Freedom pilots won the battle only through the intervention of Mark Curran in the G-Saviour and the arrival of the Illuminati.
