yep, it does happen in AC 197. Episode zero contains
several chapters pertaining to to the gundam pilot's and
relena pasts, the pre-operation meteor events and one
chapter that happens after EW.

Yep, the Wing Zero Custom was indeed haevily damaged, and
yes, Heero never disposed of the remains either.
Suprisingly, Wufei blew up the nataku...

odd note: when Quatre self destructed the Sandrock in the
anime series, it was said that it remained mostly intact,
and that's why the Maganaucs were easily able to rebuild
it. Hmmm...

There's a bit of inconsistency in design since the
operation meteor chapter shows the Kunio Ookawara versions

chapter is the one made by Hajime Katoki (i was hoping they
might use the Ver. Ka gundams even once).
