The Ground Types are supposedlytest units rushed into production (about only
20 or so) in response to the Zion ground offensive. The RGM-79[G] is
supposedly the first test type (pre-mass production) GM, the design was
stripped down for massed production as the RGM-79A and then reintroduced as
the RGM-79C type after the war. The existence of these MS during said time
period are a vindication of Amuro's statement that they (White Base) were
only a decoy and that the Feds already had other weapons ready for use.

Also, these people (Sanders, Amada) were in test battalions, probably the
only battalions where wherein knowledge of Fed MS and the Gundam was made
known. Notice that Shiro wsn't kicked out for his actions and that a lot of
weird charaters are kept in these battalions. Just shows that they want to
keep knowldge that these weapons exist thats why they tolerate these people
in these battalions instead of just kicking them out.
