Yes, it's an alternative scenario. It begins when Char decides to take
over Zeon and makes a speech in Granada. In this cutscene, you can see
at his side people like Lalah Sun, Sharia Bull and even Flanagan. After
taking off his mask, he introduces himself as Daikun's son, etc...
The basic idea is that Char killed Amuro and managed to get White Base
to join him and it is more or less supposed to follow the novels. You
don't get a lot of pilots but the choice is pretty interesting, here

Cassoval Daikun (Char in his Red Comet outfit without his mask).
Lalah Sun
Sharia Bull
Kusko Al
Marion Welsh
Sayla Mas

Basically, you have to get rid of both EMF and Zeon Dukedom with very
