Any new info from the V Gundam Master Archive?

I was wondering if the V Gundam Master Archive contained any new information on the vague development history of the League Militaire's mobile suits (like the degree of Anaheim's involvement, if at all, for example) or if it had any interesting factoids about them that we weren't privy to before.

The book's history section is pretty short... 17 pages in total, more like 9 once you take out the pictures. The first few pages seem to be mostly devoted to discussion of the state of mobile suit development prior to when the League Militaire kicked off the V Project in UC 0153. The RGM-109, D-50C, MSA-1020 ATMOS, several SNRI Formula series units, the MSZ-010, and a few others are mentioned.

IINM, Anaheim licensed technology to the League Militaire and provided manufacturing support incl. allowing some of the actual development and testing to be done on Luna... and they had some SNRI engineers involved thanks to Zanscare seizing SNRI's branch office in Side 2.

Ah bummer. I was really kind of hoping we'd get some more juicy info and dates on the development of the Victory and the resources/personell/politics involved.

I noticed some V Gundam have color scheme not seen in the show. Are they suppose to be custom machines for aces? The Shrike Team?

Those previously unseen color schemes of the LM312V04 are as follows:
- Trainer (orange and white)
- Camouflage pattern 1 (grayish blue and white)
- Camouflage pattern 2 (sand brown and sand)
- Rollout (light gray and white)
