Yutaka Izubuchi did the mecha designs for Gundam 0080, with some assistance
from Mika Akitaka (of "Le MS Girls" fame) and Yasushi Ishizu. While
Izubuchi is most definitely responsible for the retcons, there's some
question as to who did what with regard to individual MS. The styling of
the Kämpfer seems to be deliberately Patlabor-esque, though, which may
account for its distinctiveness. Whether this styling was by way of
"me-too!" imitation or homage is uncertain, however.
