MG GM Sniper English Manual and Color Guide

MG RGM-79[G] GM Sniper Construction Manual and Color Guide

The RGM-79[G] GM Sniper from Gundam: 08th MS Team. If memory serves me correctly, this Mobile Suit appeared in the latter part of the OVA during the final remaining battles between the Federation forces and Zeon on earth.

Quite a unique design really with external power source for the sniper rifle. Might be murder in deployment though, considering the amount of equipment it has to bring just in order to fire the gun. Still, when the sh*t hits the fan, it would be easy for this mobile suit to just drop everything and run. Live to fight another day as the mantra goes.

The MG GM Sniper is selling for 2568 yen at Amiami, 3500 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 2800 yen at Hobby Search
