A three-generation SU(5) GUT, that is 3 × (10 + 5) and a single 5–5 pair, is constructed by compactification of the E_8 heterotic string. The base manifold is the Z_5 × Z_5 -quotient of the quintic, and the vector bundle is the quotient of a positive monad. The group action on the monad and its bundle-valued coho-mology is discussed in detail, including topological restrictions on the existence of equivariant structures. This model and a single Z_5 quotient are the complete list of three generation quotients of positive monads on the quintic.
