well I do recall the back cover for a Gaia Gear Sound Theatre CD titled
'Mobile Suit Gundam Saga: Gaia Gear' I don't know how or why that

I beg to differ. Technology is different between Gaia Gear and F91/VG.
Machines in Gaia Gear are heavy and large, cf MS in F91/VG. I not even
to think how G-Saviour will fit into this @_x

was there ever an date which Gaia Gear is supposed to occur? In light
F91/VG, the Gundam Perfect Web and other sources put Gaia Gear in 203
(?). But anyway, I think Gaia Gear is accepted by hard core Gundam fans
who believe in the old Amuro vs Char conflict.

he, perhaps I will just compile my own acceptable UC universe.

right so what does this say about Gaia Gear?

BTW according to the Gundam Perfect Web, the F90 roll out was in 0111,
and F91 rolled out in 0112. By the time these feature in any conflict,
these are 'old' compared to other Gundams by he time they see combat.
The entry for the F91 was translated by Translingo as:
Gundam F91 roll out. [It] takes time in the adjustment of the bio-
yeah, takes six years to adjust while it collects dust, and then most of
the work is then focused on the F90. The Anaheim version of F91 is not
rolled out until 0122. This is one screwy period for technology. Then
there is the F90 III Y, which apparently features in Crossbone Gundam
and Silhouette Formula 91. Confused...
