The RX-79[G] Gundam Ground Type which was the main mobile suit featured in 08th MS Team OVA. Quite a good series actually if you ask me because of the unique way with which they featured a side story. The conflict in this one was set in an obscure jungle and because of which the dynamics of warfare were slightly different than normal.

In the OVA the protagonists were deployed as squads comprising of a pack of mobile suits with a hover tank support vehicle. The hovertank's purpose was as a support and reconnaissance vehicle. To detect the enemy they had to rely on sonar like equipment instead of radar and thats where the hovertank came in.

The HGUC RX-79[G] Gundam Ground Type is selling for 1099 yen at Amiami, 1200 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 1200 yen at Hobby Search
