Belfast, Northern Ireland -- a fairly new city when Gundam was aired,
having been established only five years earlier as part of the treaty
granting Northern Ireland independence from the Republic of Ireland in the
south.

Ireland must hold some fascination for Tomino, as Dublin (AKA Baile Atha
Cliath) will later play an important part in Gundam ZZ, where it becomes
the site of the least-destructive colony drop in UC history.
