there was another Mk III, I belive the RX-272. There was three units of it
made. Its fate was not explained.

Its implied Mark, ie: Zeta Gundam Plus.. and most of them are prototypes,
not mass produced. I think the only one that was mass produced was the B.
The A1 was definitely a prototype.

If that's the case, the Rick Dias should be classified a Gundam as well
since it is the first developed unit in Project Zeta, a.k.a Gamma Gundam.

>Plus, and Re-GZ aren't.

If you have to have the word "Gundam" in the name for it to be a Gundam then
the Re-GZ should be by that definition, a Gundam.. or did you forget the G
in Re-GZ stands for Gundam. If that's the case why did you include the Hyaku
Shiki in your list? there's the obvious lack of the word "Gundam" in that
name. In my book, the Zeta Plus is a Gundam, the GM definitely ain't, and
the Re-GZ is arguable, but I don't think so.

I really like the Kondo mangas. Maybe because he's a huge Jion fan like me.
