The Gundam was apparently created by Kamaria Ray, Amuro's mother. Its history appears to be largely the same as the original Gundam (fighting several Zaku IIs inside a colony, fighting Char's Zaku, reentering the atmosphere, fighting the Elmeth and the Zeong, etc.), though the circumstances under which Amuro boarded it was completely different - it landed in front of Amuro on its own before opening its cockpit, with the voice of Kamaria calling out to him. It was eventually destroyed in the same manner as the original.
