And to an extent they are. To compensate for their number IMHO Sunrise
seems to have made them weaker and beatings that the RX-78-2 would have
survived can thrash the RX-79[G]s pretty badly. In fact there hardly seems
to be any diff with the RX-79[G] and the RGM-79[G] other than one having a
bit more onboard weaponry.
