yes, I remember having an intro for the V-gundam which
said something to that effect, before the major revamp. I twould make
sense. after all the havok and miracles Amuro pulled off, I guess the
White mobile suit phenomenon is considered as part of history.

Now comes the good question...if Amuro achieves a sort of immortality as
the pilot of the white mobile suit, were there indications in F91 and
V-gundam of Char's contributions to history? I mean, I've watched F91, and
there is no reference I can offhand remember, except for their dress sense,
which looks a bit like what char loved to wear.
