No, I dont mean class names, I mean individual ship names. For example, there's
the Siegfried and Valkyrie from 0080.

For that matter, do we know the name 'prefix' (cant think of the correct term)
like USS for the Federation or Zeon? Let's see, how about UNS for the Feds and
DZS for Zeon?

Ah, thank you very much. The number of Musai would definately seem to uphold
0080's numbering system, which could also start to give us an inkling of when the
various sub-classes or 'flights' started.
