        Correct. Specifically, Renpou eXperimental -- Federation
experimental MS.

        Not exactly. RGM (M inclusive) indicates that a particular MS is
from the GM series, but the number's pretty loose -- the first was RGM-79,
but the next generation is tagged RGM-179, I think from Zeta or ZZ,
definitely not in UC 0179.

        The last set of letters describe the particular sub-type. For
example, RGM-79SP is a Sniper version, whereas RGM-79G is a variant specific
for colony defense, and so forth.

I am careful not to confuse excellence with perfection.
Excellence I can reach for; perfection is God's business.
