    No, it was in Zeta Gundam. It was early on in the series. You remember when Jerid Messa fell for that blonde female pilot? What was her name again... oh yeah, Lt. Lila Milla Rira. She was a Galbaldy pilot. It happens around the time that Quattro shows Lt. Emma Sheen the aftermath of the Colony 30 Incident.

    Aww, Wow I hardly recognize it. Must have thought it was just another Rick Dias or something. That old Z animation didn't help ether.

    As far as my favorite Zaku. I'd have to say the Zaku 1 MS-05S Commander Type.

    So I just looked up the Gyan And Galbaldy variants. Its surprising all the mobile suits I have never seen.

    I like the Galbaldy Beta high mobility type aswell. And the Gyan has allot of really cool variants. The Gyan always had a really good platform. And some of the variants really take it to the next level. I really like the Zudah F and Gann EX.

    Another reason for the federation development suit that had a zeon appearance is because after the OYW many zeon engineers and designer joined the federation and Anaheim electronics.

    The Galbaldy Alpha was based off data from both the Gyan and Gelgoog. Used the suit as my characters final one in the OYW RP.

    Anaheim was also willing to overlook their Zeonic past for the most part.

    Not too surprising, Look at the US space program post war for instance.

    Yep. It was all part of a CIA operation called Operation: Paperclip. The objective was to nab as many Nazi scientists as possible so that the Soviets wouldn't get them. The end result was while the US did get a lot of the engineers, they didn't get any of the technicians that were part of the various programs (like the V1 missile and the V2 rocket). Ironically, the Soviets got a lot the technicians, but did not get any of the engineers.

    We got Wernher von Braun. He helped design and develop the V-2 rocket and served as the chief architect of the Saturn V SHLLV. The American high command had von Braun of the Black List, the code name for the list of German scientists and engineers targeted for immediate interrogation by U.S. military experts.

    Soviets may have held an early lead in the Space Race, but we won in the end.
