The nomenclature in the Gundam world is pretty
arbitrary. Before 'Gundam Mechanics' series were
published, I never saw the "Y" prefix stuck to MS-15
Gann. But fair is fair, they added the Y to 0079's
Gann & 0083's Zammel to acknowledge they are
prototypes not being mass produced.

Change/adjust in equippments, yes, but poorer
performance? not necessary. In Zaku II series, F is
the original space type, J is for ground type, D is
for desert type, & K is for Zaku Cannon, & so on. They
all adjusted for different combat environments & can
not be compared w/ one another. Unless, of course, you
are comparing the regular cannon fodder F & Char's Red
Comet S type, than S is better than F because S is the
advance model of F.

Guess again! She reappears in the "SD Gundam's
Counterattack" TV show in 1989, this time as the
grumpy matchmaker in a dating show along w/ her
co-host, SD Bernie Wiseman. :)
