had been adopted as their base's "patron god."
* MS-09 emblem
* Captain Karmic Rom's personal emblem
As seen on either an MS-06D Desert Zaku or YMS-09 Prototype Dom,
depending on which source you believe. Originally the personal
emblem of this veteran of the Middle Eastern front, later the unit
emblem of the "Scorpio" raiding team.
* 1st Lieutenant Ian Greyden's personal emblem
As seen on this ace's MS-06K Zaku Cannon
* 1st Lieutenant Marlo Gaim's personal emblem
Gaim was originally stationed with the Southeast Asian flying corps
"Siamese Fever," which later became a mobile suit force equipped with

his days as an airplane pilot.
* Wing Lady emblem
Used by the 3rd Terrestrial Attack Corps that carried out an invasion
from the northern part of the Middle East through to Northern Europe.
The same emblem was later seen in use by units in the south of France.
* Zaku Lady emblem
Used by the "Blitz" company, a part of the aforementioned force that
operated mainly in Southern Europe. Records indicate that the emblem
wasn't used by all the company's members, but rather adopted on a
* Home Defense Corps emblem
As seen on the mobile suit of Lt. Colonel Eris Mansfield, a member of
* Mobile Assault Force emblem
Seldom used by the force as a whole, this came to be associated
specifically with the Black Trinary.
* Granada 7th Division emblem
Used on an MS-06R-1 stationed with Granada's 7th Division; the pilot's
identity is unknown.
* Captain Shin Matsunaga's personal emblem
Emblem of the "White Wolf of Solomon." The writer notes that, though
the character of the Duchy of Zeon is mostly Caucasian, the drawing

the MSM-03 Gog, this unit also had one MS-06M Zaku Marine Type.
* Red Dolphin Corps emblem
Symbol of the "Red Dolphin Corps" led by Lt. Colonel Harmins, which
participated in the Mediterranean landing operation. This unit had
two MS-06M Zaku Marine Types, and otherwise relied on the MSM-03 Gog.
* Green Siren emblem
Used by the "Green Siren" submarine squadron, which patrolled the South
Atlantic. Unlike other submarine fleets, which tended to use the MSM-03
Gog, this one was equipped with the MSM-07 Zugok. They also received one
of the seven MS-06M Zaku Marine Types.

* 1st Lieutenant Cyrus Locke's personal emblem
Used by Cyrus Locke, stationed with the 4th Terrestrial Mobile Division
in Southeast Asia. Locke was well-known to the Federal Forces for
his knack for destroying tanks, earning the nickname "Blue Tiger." This
emblem was located on the arm of his MS-07B Gouf (or, the writer
notes, possibly a YMS-07 Prototype Gouf). Locke went missing in
action following a clash with Federation mobile suits, directly before
the end of the war.
* MS-06V emblem
Note: All ranks are listed in army terms. Just keeping y'all on your toes.
