Trivia (1)

  • Shouldn't there be Ground Combat Gundams, GM Snipers and Ground Combat GMs in Jaburo? The 08th MS Team starts at the same time as The Threat of Zeon, so if there are additional Federation Mobile Suits out in the jungle, you'd think there would be some in the headquarters.

Allusions (1)

  • Gihren Zabi and Degwin Sodo Zabi: Degwin Zabi: "Are you familar with Adolf Hitler?" Gihren Zabi: "Hitler? You mean from the Middle Ages."
    In a conversation between Gihren and his Degwin, Degwin compares his son to Adolf Hitler. When asked if he knows who this is, Gihren referes to Hitler as from the Middle Ages. Perhaps in the year U.C. 0079 the history books are altered or perhaps our time is considered the Middle Ages because it is so late in the future. Or maybe there is so much history since Hitler that Gihren has trouble remembering where one person fits into it.
