This is "Kill 'em All" Tomino at his best.

What is the point of blowing a whole bunch of character you never know? You
have to be invested emotionally before they can fully harvest the fruit of

To better study the moving frame technology. AEUG's primary aim at stealing
thosee Gundams is not to field them in combat. They need to understand the
technological edge the Titans has over them, and replicate it. 2 of the
Gundams were disassembled for study purpose, and then serve as spare parts
for the active mobile suit.

Rick Dias's bulky looking frame does bring to mind Gelgoog and Dom. Anaheim
Electronic further enhanced this mobile suit into Dijeh (Amuro's personal
mobile suit in Zeta), and later sold an upgraded version Sturm Dias to the
Axis (you've got to pay to bills for all these wars).

Anaheim Electronics.

If you read Chinese, the Chinese sub vcd are fairly easy to come by.
