After War or AW refers to one of the timelines in the Gundam anime meta-series.
The After War period starts following the massive colony drops that brought an end to the 7th Space War and killed 99% of humanity living on the Earth's surface. The third of a series of Gundam anime's made in the 1990s that take place in an alternate universe, following the success of Mobile Fighter G Gundam and New Mobile Report Gundam Wing. In addition to an anime, the After War timeline also contains three mangas. The first was a manga adaptation of the anime, with the second being a sequel called After War Gundam X: Under the Moonlight that introduces a new cast of characters. The third manga called After War Gundam X: Newtype Warrior Jamil Neate follows the adventure and missions of Jamil Neat, a principal character in the anime, before the end of the 7th Space War. The After War series shares some similarities with the Universal Century. It is also the first series outside of the Universal Century to use Newtypes.

Notes & Trivia
- The After War timeline is regarded by some fans as an alternate version of the Universal Century where the One Year War escalated to a horrific conclusion.
- In some fan theories, the AW period is considered as a direct continuation from the Universal Century. AW period starts after 7th Space War, while there are six known major conflicts during Universal Century timeline (One Year War, Gryps War, First Neo Zeon War (fought against Axis Zeon), Second Neo Zeon War (fought against Char's Neo Zeon faction), Cosmo Babylon Wars (involving the original Crossbone Vanguard), and Zanscare Empire Insurrection). It is presumed that the 7th War took place years after the Zanscare conflict. Furthermore, the After War period is the only one of pre-Correct Century timelines not to start with creation of the first space colony. Note that this theory does not take into account the Third Neo Zeon War, Operation Stardust, The Jupiter Empire Wars, or the Oldsmobile Conflict fought against Mars Zeon. More than likely because the first was largely fought in secret and not a full war, the second was a glorified terrorist attack, and the latter two were minor insurrections, put down by smaller groups. This theory also fails to account for the lack of references to D.O.M.E. in the Universal Century.
- Space Revolutionary Army Mobile Suits tend to use the model number prefix RMS, while New United Nations Earth Mobile Suits use the model number prefix NRX, both of which were also used in the Universal Century series Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam and Mobile Suit Gundam ZZ.
