Mobile Suit Gundam: Omega
The RGM-79[G] GM Sniper is a mass-produced ground long-range mobile suit, and is a variant to the RGM-79［G］ GM Ground Type.
Technology & Combat Characteristics
Befitting its name, the GM Sniper is a RGM-79［G］ GM Ground Type modified for long range combat. In order to make use of space, two extra ammunition packs for the machinegun were placed on the sideskirt armor.
The GM Snipers aren’t seen with the various hand-carried standard weapons that a GM Ground Type has, and is replaced with a single Long Range Beam Rifle. The rifle is meant for long range combat, but its power is too much for the GM Sniper’s generator alone, so the gun is connected to a larger, more powerful generator by thick wires. This means that the GM Sniper is a sitting duck if enemy forces get in too close.
BLASH XBR-X-79YK Long-Range Beam Rifle
The GM Sniper carries a long-range beam rifle mounted with a high-powered scope, allowing the pilot to hit distant targets with pinpoint accuracy. But the energy required to fire was too much for the GM’s power generator to produce, and the rifle was connected via cable to an external power supply and cooling system on a support vehicle.
However it can still fire without aid of an external generator though it would require the GM to power it’s e-cap for one minute and it can only fire two mid range shots per charge.
The standard close range armament for most Federation mobile suits. The beam saber is a small cylindrical device held in the mobile suit’s hands when operated and is powered by an energy capacitor that is recharged from special racks. The beam saber is capable of cutting through any metal that has not been treated with anti-beam coating. The GM Sniper has two beam sabers, one stored in each lower leg in an internal recharging rack.
