That's true, but at least Tomino and Yoshikazu
(chara designer) didn't explicitly showing the WWII
Nazi style uniforms for the Zeons (but strong hints of
that, no doubt). And I should correct myself about the
Zeon-Nazi association. Real-life chronicle wise, it
actuallt began with Char's Counterattack movie (1988):
just look at Char's Neo-Zeon uniform. :) After that it
was following by 0080 (1989) and 0083 (1990).
