I bet it just reflects the competition that was hot at the time - in this
case, the Eva with its positron sniper rifle in that episode where they had
to shut down the entire Japan to provide its power. Don't forget Zeta's
transforming mechas were a tip of the hat to the Valkyries and all the
"Robotech" shows that were hot at the time, and in V Gundam you got a Nadia-
look-alike, then G Gundam was a homage to Street Fighter and Hong Kong
Kung Fu movies...
