  Though it's not clearly shown in the animation, I think the novels may
have indicated they were ferried about in Columbus-class transport ships.

  True, and after the opening battle at 5th Luna, the Londo Bell is
_never_ at full strength anyway. I could see them cramming in the ReGZ
and its booster someplace funky, then housing it and the Nu Gundam in the
space vacated by lost Jegans...

  I don't think I've catalogued Char's numbers on the Gundam Project yet.
The official total is 82 Gira Dogas, one Sazabi, and _two_ Jagd Dogas -
Gyunei's and Quess's. The Alpha Aziel won't fit inside a ship and is
instead towed to and fro.
