As far as I can say, yes, the spacecraft you're refering to are the same model.

On a slightly unrelated note, my previous statement on a possible connection of that "new" Salamis variant with a ship from Ixtab turned out to be wrong (a memory fault!)...

Ah. No worries. Had a couple of those earlier. Thanks for checking though. I don't remember seeing that ship anywhere during my reading of the Origin Manga. Then again I don't remember Lepanto Class from it either. I guess I need to go and check out the Manga again from my local library again.

Anyone here know the purpose of the bars on the shoulders of the Gundam Ground Type/Local Type?

Also, why did they change the Guncannon-style visor on the Prototype Gundam into the more familiar two-eye arrangement on the Gundam?

Attachment points for extra hardware, like the parachute pack.
Well, I guess I'm a nobody...

It was always my impression that the RX-78-01 Prototype Gundam DID have the two eyes, but for some reason had a visor over the eyes, that was absent in the RX-78-02. As to what that reason may be...I dunno.

As seen for instance in the original Blue Destiny manga those bars are very useful for the airborne transport inside Medea and / or Gunperry.
