The original mobile suit Gundam (ガンダム) is an advanced unit created by the Earth Federation's secret development project codenamed "V." Made from advanced materials, it has extremely high performance in all categories. The field experience gained from its exploits during UC 0079 allowed the Federation to adopt a less expensive model, the RGM-79 GM, for mass production.
The Gundam has HP comparable to a heavy Support unit, plus a large shield, powerful beam weapons, high speed and skills that enable top level agility. Because it is a highly specialized prototype model, it has very few custom parts slots. Its pre-game lobby icon is a blue Gundam head.
