The delaz Fleet will probably still fight to the death (others will run back to Axis). Cima gets what she wants and the Titans will still spring up, so basically nothing changes.

The Feds might have given the Gundam to another, but if Amuro had died, then maybe all of them will have died too, since it was Amuro who kicked the two rampaging Zaku's butts. No Amuro, Zaku continues rampage, Gundam is destroyed or captured...bad...bad

Amuro gets a better Gundam, and it probably still ends the same way (Amuro just doesn't have a worse time than he did.

No. Most of that "macho, take on an army alone stuff cant work. Heero doesn't even know how to dodge. If it were UC physics, two or three rockets or a barrage from rifles that he usually takes in strides would kill him.

Haven't seen the show, but seent he MS. No bearing...Gundam is Gundam and with Tomino on board, it probably would still sell...

Probably not.

Char wins, and the rest of humanity will have no choice but to live in space. Hmm... it might probably have been for the best now that most of the elitist politician have lost ground, but corruption will always be there and so Char's Utopia might still be long, long away...
