I see that you are an active editor here and want to hear feedback about some of my edits. I have plans to work on the wiki page for the RGM-96X Jesta in which I put information that it was possibly developed from the Nu Gundam. I believe this from their similar inner frame and the beam saber on their left arm. I also maybe heard something about it from one of the SD games. It makes sense to base the Jesta off the Nu Gundam like the rest of the UC Project in order for it to perform well enough to fight in tandem with the Unicorn Gundam. I'm saying this to many other people but I want to check in with you if you think it makes sense.
No we dont have any sauce for the "late type" IIRC the around 3 weeks into the origin ver of the OYW new zaku II variants started appearing so i wanted to separate them out form the original. I dont think the the guide books dealt with them either, everything kinda got thrown in together.
'(Ryusei-Go)' should be removed from the article title.
On the HG 1/144 box, 'Ryusei-Go' is in brackets. As in the case of the EB-06/tc2 Ryusei-Go, 'Graze Custom 2' was in brackets and omitted from the article title. Furthermore, on the official website the name is simply Gundam Flauros.
Unfortunately I am unable to move the page as it would cause a redirect loop. If you could help, I would appreciate it.

There is nothing wrong in using info from on official site as long as some effort is made to paraphrase the the info rather than a direct copy paste. Once again its showing that the wikia is falling into old habits, like stealing stuff from MAHQ/Zeonic.
Wut? That's why citations exist. Why would one waste time paraphrasing a perfectly fine translation(if it's the case)? The IBO S2 kits will come with English translated manuals so they will be directly copy-pasted until a full translation of the text is done.
Comparing mahq/zeonic to official translations is wrong.
That's exactly why I deleted the edit because it had no citations it was pure copy paste from the official site. If editors want to add info from official sources then they should be prepared to reference it, If they don't then they need to rewrite it.
The question is not "Did the OVA change the Prototype Zaku's name to Bugu?" but rather "Did the Manga ever call the MS-04 a Zaku?".
Volume VI: TO WAR is where the MS-04 first appears. When footage of it is shown to Tem Ray, it is only known as the MS-04. The animated version of that scene does not give any name either, at least in the trailer for episode 4.
When the MS-04 (a blue unit) and MS-05 units engage in combat on the moon, they aren't referred to as anything.
which suggests both the one Gopp showed to Tem Ray and the one Ramba Ral piloted during Minovsky's defection are referred to as the Prototype Zaku. This is supplementary to the manga but not the manga itself.
Now, the only visual representation of a Bugu so far is a blue one piloted by Ramba Ral. The website's descriptions of the MS-05 units involved in the battle on the moon mention the Bugu. It does say more than one MS-04 were built but does not give images of them. It's not unusual for the same machine to be referred to by multiple names (the RAG-79-G1 has two official names), especially where there's more than one unit built.
Though the Bugu never entered mass production, several units were built. Because it has better basic performance than the mass-produced Zaku I, one of these units is given to Ramba Ral, who served as a test pilot during the mobile suit's development.
The orange unit is seen in the trailer as well, however the Dyaus-class, Chaceldony-class and Sing Lung-class were never named in Gundam AGE their official names came from supplementary material, this is not the first instance where mobile suits or ships have been given conflicting info regarding names and histories. The fact of the matter is the
YMS-03 Waff --> MS-04 Bugu
MS-03 (never appeared in the manga) --> MS-04 Prototype Zaku (never named in the manga)
the units have different development lines and if they replicate the scene you are referring to involving the MS-04 test flight and display different specs then they are going to have to be treated as new units, and since this is the suit that will be shown in animated form this will be the official form going forward anyway.
