October U.C.0079. Southern part of North America. Petty Officer 2nd Class Vasili of the Principality of Zeon forces along with Flynn and Sergue are rushing to link up with the main forces with their three Zaku II’s. Due to the death of Commander Garma Zabi of the Western District, headquarters was in disarray and they were unable receive the latest experimental unit. As Vasili’s team advances through the maelstrom of mayhem, they notice an unidentified unit approaching before coming under attack by it. The unidentified unit was the mobile suit “Gundam” which rocked the Zeon soldiers.
Chapter.02 Don’t Die on Me, Vasili
As Vasili’s team is en route to link up with the main forces, they encounter the Earth Federation Forces latest mobile suit, the Gundam, and go into battle against it. Although his Zaku II is damaged, he manages to repel the Gundam at the cost of a wingman. Having been the sole survivor, he reflects on his comrades of the Y-02 Development and Training Team, and cannot shake the image of Commander Doan who broke them apart and abandoned them in the middle of that nightmarish operation. Commander Doan had said, “Don’t Die on Me, Vasili” and then deserted the military.
Chapter.03 Dam on the Black Sea
Mid-October U.C.0079. Petty Officer 1st Class Kakla and Petty Officer 2nd Class Hjalmar of the former Y-02 Development and Training Team were in the Bosphorus Strait which is the entrance of the Black Sea. The two had been transferred to a Surface Force which was tasked with stopping the invasion of Odessa by the Earth Federation Forces which had broken through Gibraltar. However, the difference in power between the Zeon and the Earth Federation was overwhelming and it was only a matter of time before the Federation Forces would break through the Strait. Then, on a foggy day, they would come under attack by a Gundam type mobile suit from underwater.
