Mobile Suit Gundam Silhouette Formula 91 in UC 0123 (機動戦士ガンダム シルエットフォーミュラ91戦記0123) is a manga (with an accompanying model kit series) set in U.C. 0123, two days after the beginning of the Mobile Suit Gundam F91 film. It takes place between February 18 and February 23, thus concluding three days before the film, though in an entirely different region of space. The manga centers around Iris Orlando, a scientist from Anaheim Electronics who is a mobile suit developer attached to the F91 project. It features secondarily a protagonist by the name of Tokio Randall who is a more standard dark-haired, Gundam-piloting hero. The events unravel to reveal a conspiracy between Anaheim and the Earth Federation, along the way the Crossbone Vanguard is pulled into the events and ends up battling against the test pilots from Anaheim.

Synopsis

Gundam F91 Silhouette Formula starts by having pilots Tokio and Kevin Forrest doing simulations. In the midst of this they encounter an XM-01 Den'an Zon MS running tests for the nearby Crossbone Vanguard. In order to preserve their secrecy, the Crossbone forces attack the Anaheim test ship Bladewood.They expect an easy victory, but are repulsed by the Bladewood's mobile suits. In order to enact repairs from the damage they sustained at the hands of the Crossbone Vanguard, the Bladewood enters a nearby abandoned space colony in the Zebra Zone.

Inside the colony Iris, Tokio and Kevin are attacked by a Geara Doga. They successfully capture the machine and find the pilot to be a young girl by the name of Layla Lagiorr. After initially remaining silent she has an emotional outburst in which she explains that there are Zeon Remnants living in the colony and that six years ago the Federation came and slaughtered most of them.

Confused by her story the Bladewood's crew decide to attempt to contact the Zeon Remnants and attempt to ascertain what is going on. They do so and discover the harsh reality of Federation forces that relishes killing the remnants of Zeon in a way similar to the Titans. Meanwhile the Ra Cailum class ESFS starship Ajax arrives at the colony in order to "aid in repairs" and transfer personnel under the command of Baz Galemson . Together the Zeon Remnants and the crew of the Bladewood realize that the situation surrounding them is not as it seems. Eventually, it is revealed that the crew of the Ajax knew of the existence of the Crossbone Vanguard and requested their help in "killing 2 birds with 1 stone", namely a group of Zeon refugees and the Bladewood crew. In desperation, Tokio steals the RX-99 Neo Gundam Unit 2 and joins forces with Layla to take down the corrupt Baz and the Ajax.

Trivia

  • The Gespenst series, an original mecha design that was one of most iconic and relatively early original designs in the Super Robot Wars series of video games, bears strong similarities to the XM-07G Vigna Zirah, which was featured only in this manga. The Gespenst and the Vigna Zirah have very similar design in terms of head, lower legs and shoulders.
  • Similarly to the above the character Lamia Loveless, who debuted in Super Robot Wars A as a playable protagonist, has a similar appearance to that of Iris Orlando. This can be seen most clearly in the shot of Iris in a dress on the cover page of Chapter 02 - Sortie.
