In the race to adapt its standard RGM-79 GM mobile suit for specialized roles during the latter days of the One Year War, the Earth Federation Forces create a GM variant designed to serve as a fast attack unit for hit-and-run raids, the RGM-79L GM Light Armor. This GM mounts only the barest minimum of armor (notably missing armor on the shoulders and ankles), thus giving it more acceleration and maneuverability. It also carries a beam gun similar to that of the RX-78-2 Gundam's beam rifle, packing a heavier punch but paying the price in more limited ammunition. Due to its light weight and nimbleness, the GM Light Armor is favored by many of the Federation Forces' former-fighter-pilots-turned-MS-pilots, particularly Gary Rogers.
In game, RGM-79L GM Lightarmor or GML for short, is the MS you must have at beggining of the game. It has better stats, and has the highest Dodge stat of the 0.0 Tier MS. The only downside of the GML is its Armor stat. It is also the only stock 0.0 Tier MS that has a lvl 2 engine.
Overall GML is a good MS for those who just started.
