Soldiers of Sorrow (哀・戦士 Ai Senshi?) is a song by Daisuke Inoue. Though originally an insert song during the famous Battle of Jaburo scene in the movie Mobile Suit Gundam II: Soldiers of Sorrow, in the 2000 re-release of the movie, Soldiers of Sorrow was replaced with instrumental background music and instead accompanied the end credits scene where the SCV-70 White Base takes off.
