The 1/100 V2 can do this too! Actually, of the three scales I think the
1/144 looks best proportion-wise, the 1/100 is the most versatile, an
the 1/60 the most visually imposing (it's just so big). The 1/100 was
the only one that came in the Assault release too, allowing you to
combine the kit with the V2 Buster to create the V2 Assault Buster
Gundam (which is WAY cool).

Uh, not having seen any later V2 episodes, was there more than one V2
made for the League? And for that matter, what was the composition of
the League Militaire towards the end of the war? Mostly V Gundams? Or
Gunblastors? Or (gasp) Javelins and Jamesguns?
