  No no no...
  The [G] version is simply a limited production type early production
prototype that they tested out on Earth, it was never produced in large
numbers. As Mark Simmons pointed out earlier, in the 8mst continuity the
Feds had _two_ parallel GM programs, one the standard GM we know and love,
the other the [G] Ground only series. Apparently the Feds eventually dump
the [G] series and go on to produce only one main type of GM for space and
ground warfare.

  [G] refers to the 8MST version ONLY, and it's strictly a ground-only
design. (We see regular GM in space in the first episode, though this is
supposed to be a prototype curiously enough). The G GM is the
colony-fighter GM Commando. You'll note that the [G] appears to completely
lack verniers.
