Mobile Suit Gundam UC: One of Seventy Two (Kidou Senshi Gundam UC: ONE OF SEVENTY TWO, 機動戦士ガンダムUC: ONE OF SEVENTY TWO) is a short G-DOME movie based on the short story written by Harutoshi Fukui. It was first aired at Gundam Front Tokyo at August 3, 2013.
On December 3, U.C. 0095, the Earth Federation Forces and Anaheim Electronics are conducting a joint test between two Unicorn Gundams: Anaheim's RX-0 Unicorn Gundam 02 Banshee and the EFF's RX-0 Unicorn Gundam 03 Phenex. The test was observed by three people: Martha Vist Carbine and two Federation advisers.
The adviser react with disdain at the "unicorn and lion" naming scheme of the Unicorn Gundams, saying that Anaheim has brought their own interests into a military prototype, and expressed confidence that by defeating the Banshee during this evaluation, the situation will change.
The test is in the form of live combat: Federation intelligence had learned of a Neo Zeon fleet approaching the sector, and whichever unit shoots down the most Neo Zeon mobile suits wins. The Federation advisers are confident in the Phenex's victory, since it was piloted by a Cyber Newtype.
Both units launched and engaged in combat with the Neo Zeon mobile suits, including the AMX-107R Rebawoo. When the Banshee attempted to attack the Rebawoo, it separated into two and began emitting psycho-frame readings, causing Banshee's NT-D System to activate. One of the Federation advisers ordered the deactivation of Phenex's limiters in order to not fall behind the Banshee, which was now in Destroy Mode, despite the other adviser objecting that doing so might cause a resonance phenomena.
Once in Destroy Mode, the Phenex suddenly began attacking the Banshee, causing the Rebawoo to flee. Martha demanded to know what the Phenex was doing while the Federation ship was unable to communicate with the Phenex. As the Phenex continued to attack the Banshee, both units' psycho-frames began resonating, producing a light as they came into contact.
Realizing what was happening, Martha ordered her ship to pull back and suggested the Federation advisers to do the same. Having fought off the Banshee, which retreated back to its ship, the Phenex's attention turned to the EFF advisers' Irish-class battleship. The Federation operator desperately tried to order the Phenex to abandon mission as it began attacking the ship's bridge, destroying it and killing the Federation advisers.
