I have a theory mankinds "next step" was kept secret by the
feds, they couldn't risk losing the original, so they cloned him.

It wasn't really Amuro, just after the war they had Amuro put
under house arrest, they secretly replaced the real Amuro with
a clone for Z, and if he went to space they weren't sure what
he would do so his "handlers" wouldn't let him go. Same type
reason we don't see Four leave Earth for space. Since the Feds
didn't have but only one Newtype is only stands to reason they
would have cloned him. One clone fought with the AEUG, but
the personality wasn't very convincing.

This clone of Amuro had better soldier's training, and less of
the Angsty teenager personality in him...
