The RX-78-1 is the Prototype Gundam from MSV, based off a famous Kunio
Ogawara illustration (where a black-and-white-and-red Gundam is holding
the lower half of its broken sheild with saber drawn facing the oncoming
3 Doms in Jet Stream Attack formation). I think a drawing of the Prototype
Gundam should be at www.gundamproject.com in one of the earliest entries.

Originally it was said to be one of the Gundams destroyed during the
Side 7 attack, but with 08th MS Team messing up the continuity, I think
the latest official story for it was that it was kept at Jaburo for
testing and the resulting data was used for the creation of the RX-79(G)
and RGM-79(G).
