Axis to my knowledge is a seperate fleet aside from the Zion. They aren't
part of Zion, but essentially they want the same thing; freedom for the
spacenoids. They are mainly explained in Zeta and Double Zeta.

Gundam is actually a prototype to the infamous mass produced GM and
numerous other mass produced standard MS' like the Gun Cannon. So don't
whack the GM's or other grunt MS'. :) They are actually RX-78's or older
Gundam models stripped down slightly and manufactured. To explain it more
explicitly...Gundam is a prototype for the next gen of mass produced MS.
Therefore they keep making more. That's why when G Gundam, Gundam Wing,
and especially Gundam X came along...Gundam became more of a profagandist
glamourized hero MS rather than an actual prototype MS. V Gundam was
probably the last since it's V-Buster variations seemed to be upgraded
versions of Gundam F91, F90 weapon systems, and Zeta Gundam. Still...the
bare V Gundam is a really nude mecha... ^^;; So puny; a tiny 14 metres
