OK, aside from mech design issues, there is a very important plot
issue that I don't think can just be written off as a trivial
technical inconsistency. Put quite simply, if Anaheim Electronics
made the GP series for the federation, then it is very hard, if not
impossible, to understand why it was necessary to steal the MkII at
the beginning of Zeta. Now it is easy to write this off as just
quibbling over the fancy design of the GP series, but in the early
episodes of Zeta quite a lot of fuss is made about the importance of
capturing the MkII. Now, I am not trying to get into a mech
continuity argument here, I am saying that from a storyline point of
view it poses certain problems if Anaheim Electronics has the
capability to produce MS other than Rick Dias at the start of Zeta.

The second issue is an even larger issue. At no point during the
entire run of Zeta, is there any mention of the Operation Stardust
colony drop, nor is there any mention of the Jion or Federation
breaking the Antarctic Treaty prior to the formation of the Titans.
Considering what a huge deal is made of the first colony drop, I find
it hard to reconcile nobody ever mentioning a second colony drop.
