The RGM-79S GM Spartan was originally 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 a variant of the RGM-79SP GM Sniper II fitted with a different backpack and extra armor on the front of its body, wire-guided anti-MS missiles on its right shoulder, Minovsky particle dispersion pods, and infra-red camouflage fabric on its back. On its head visor it's provided of an infrared interception sheet in order to enable IR radar detection.

Armaments

  • WAMM (Wire-guided Anti-MS Missile)
  • Combat Knife
Instead of the standard issued beam saber, the GM Spartan makes use of a pair of combat knives. The weapon, while inferior to beam weapons in cutting ability, works very quietly and does not need the energy provided by E-Cap.
  • Handgun
  • 3-slot Grenade Rack
These waist mounted grenades can be thrown like regular grenades or launched directly from the rack. They are then either set to detonate upon impact with the target, or timed to explode after a preset amount of time. This weapon would be latter refined to include its own independence optical system for precision guidance.
  • Minigun
  • 3-tube Grenade Launcher

Special Equipment & Features

  • 2-tube Smoke Discharger
A feature adopted from Zeon's ground-use MS like MS-08TX Efreet and MS-09G Dwadge, it has same principle with mordern day smoke grenade, this canister-type weapon used as ground-to-ground or ground-to-air signaling devices, target or landing zone marking devices, or as screening devices for unit movements, provide opportunity for the GM Spartan to make a charge.
  • Minovsky Particle Scattering Pod
