IIRC, the pirates in question were the Oldsmobile Fleet, the last remaining
faction of the Zeons who were equipped with retconned OYW era suits but no
Zeta or ZZ era machines for some strange reason.

Actually it was a series of modified kits that were first published in
Model Graphix. MG then put out the collection as Gundam Sentinel, which
rounds out its books on Zeta and ZZ.
