The RGM-79HC GM Guard Custom is a variant of the mass production RGM-79SC GM Sniper Custom. It first appears as a part of the MSV-R line and Legend of the Universal Century Heroes: MSV-R.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

Over the course of the One Year War, the Federation created variations of the GM Sniper Custom to be outfitted for specific roles. The GM Sniper Custom was revamped into several designs, one of them being the RGM-79HC GM Guard Custom. The GM Guard Custom is designed to protect the main battleship. The GM Guard Custom retains the "face guard" visor over its standard sensors. GM Guard Custom also uses a box beam saber like the one used by GM Sniper Custom but adds a pair of beam daggers and vulcan guns on the head and shoulder. The most notable feature is its large Guardian Shield, used for defense. However, the Guardian Shield is very heavy, making the max gross weight of the GM Guard Custom over 90 tons (compared to GM Sniper Custom's 75.3 tons) and thus lacking maneuverability. As such, the GM Guard Custom is often seen working in conjunction with the RGM-79KC GM Interceptor Custom.


  • Box Beam Saber
Similar to GM Sniper Custom, GM Guard Custom has a single beam saber attached to its forearm for close combat.
  • Beam Dagger
  • Vulcan Guns
  • Beam Spray Gun
The standard armament of the RGM-79 GM. GM Guard Custom can hold two of these weapons on its waist.
  • Guardian Shield
This giant shield can cover most of the GM Guard Custom's and has five layers of beam coating, making it very effective against beam weapons. It also has a pair of built-in vulcan guns.
  • Vulcan Guns


During the One Year War, after the destruction of Solomon a GM Guard Custom along with a GM Sniper Custom, a GM Interceptor Custom and several GM units pursued Dozle Zabi's Gwazine-class until they were intercepted by Zaku IIs and Rick Doms.


Notes & Trivia

  • The description of the GM Guard Custom was first mentioned in the GM Sniper Custom MSV profile. It is not until the release of MSV-R that this mobile suit became it's own variant.
