Oops! I seem to have gotten the MSV and MS-X series confused. In my
earlier description of MSV, I was thinking of the MS-10 Dowadge, MS-11 Act
Zaku, MS-12 Gigan, MS-13 Gasshia and MS-17 Galbaldy Alpha, but those are
all MS-X, not MSV.
On the other hand, the vast majority of MSV designs were from Kunio
Okawara, among them the FA-78 Full Armor Gundam, MS-04 Prototype Zaku,
RAG-79 Aqua GM, RGC-80 GM Cannon and a 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th Gundam, all of
which were made "alternative" with the advent of the RX-78 NT-1 Gundam G-4.
