Well, at the end of 0083 alll records of the three Gundams were erased as
part of the coverup. Remember, the Feds deliberately wanted to cover up as
much of they could about the whole incident, specifically their tremendously
bad decisions about it. Most notably, the violation of the Antarctic treaty,
and how it led to the destruction of most of their own fleet!

Nope. Later on, SNRI creates the Formula series of Gundams, and in Victory
Gundam Anaheim as zilch to do with those Gundams. In the first century,
Anaheim was basically all there *was*, aside from the various Zionic
companies who wouldn't want to do one to save their lives.
