It was designed by Sid Mead - an American industrial designer, whose designs
for the hardware in Aliens were ultimately discarded (thank God), hired by
Sunrise to redesign the Gundam for the new series. They were obviously
running out of variations on the same theme and needed a more radical
approach from a gaijin.
