“Union variable MS. It can change into a flight form but that doesn’t suppose transformation during combat. Armed with a Linear Rifle that fires electromagnetically accelerated live rounds. For melee combat, a super-vibrating Sonic Blade. One part of the machine is also equipped with an energy-covered Plasma Sword blade. There are many variations of this unit.”

“Human Progressive League (aka People’s Reform League, etc…still no official English version yet. Pick your favorite translation.) mass-production MS. Many variations for ground and space-use exist. Compared to MS in other armies, the unit is unusual in that its very slow. But as much as it sacrifices in mobility, it has strong defensive abilities and can be loaded with heavyweight armaments. It’s basic weaponry is a gun & Carbon Blade and though seen as an old model in contrast to other forces, its very reliable.”

Sunrise opened Gundam.Info a Gundam news portal site collecting information on the anime, merchandise, and event info as well as unique original content. I hope they would come up with English versions of this site soon. I see this as a very good move by Sunrise to consolidate all Gundam related news. This is perhaps a sign that they have wish to centralize the large fan base which is currently scattered across the web on the various non-official Gundam sites.
