Well, thanks to G Generation Cross Rays I did some digging and ended up going through the Twitter account of manga artist Koichi Tokita, which gave me a whole bunch of new lineart for various Gundam Wing manga.

New Mobile Report Gundam Wing: Battlefield of Pacifists

OZ-04MD Virgo3 (Cube)
Lineart: https://i.imgur.com/D4mCPYa.png
Color lineart. Tokita himself remarked that the colors may not be official (G Generation depicts it as mint green rather than light gray), but personally I'd give the artist precedence, not just because this is the most complete version of the lineart. I'd be totally fine with replacing my old custom color lineart with this version, but it's up to Chris.

Leo III
Unit type: mobile suit
Armaments: 105mm rifle
Pilot(s): Heero Yuy
Lineart: https://i.imgur.com/6EFbR8X.png
Vernier Pack: https://i.imgur.com/IBJxCjY.png

Now THIS is obscure! This is a Leo model that appeared for only a couple of panels at the very start of BFoP when Relena is investigating a former MS manufacturer named Auster Industries* to make sure they've suspended operations. For ages people seemed to assume it was just a slight customization of the original, but to celebrate BFoP getting a re-issue Tokita tweeted out the original lineart from 1996, revealing the name "Leo III" and the full design. The version in the manga isn't quite as elaborate, which Tokita blames on his own whims rather than editorial orders. The lineart version also seems to have a pair of planet defensors stored one in each shoulder, but since they aren't present in the manga I didn't include them on the armaments list.

*The English manga calls the company "Century Discover Corporation", but Tokita's tweet says "Auster Industries". Given that Tokyopop was known for making crap up whenever they felt like it (such as giving Lt. Nichol the surname "Cage" just for the sake of the obvious joke), I'll side with the man who actually helped make the manga.

Gundam Wing Dual Story: G-UNIT

D-Unit
Blue version: https://i.imgur.com/EkN5qvg.png
Green version (edited): https://i.imgur.com/bQZyh5v.png
Red version (edited): https://i.imgur.com/7YZFCBD.png
Official color lineart. He only did the blue version, but had a note off to the side saying "There are other color versions" with little swatches of green and red, which I used to photoshop the alternate versions.

OZ-06MS-E2 EWAC Leo
Armaments: mini machine gun, smoke discharger x 3
Lineart: https://i.imgur.com/aaKE0Ev.png
Mini Machine Gun: https://i.imgur.com/6BafskM.png
Official color lineart, and a confirmed model number. Besides the mini machine gun, the lineart also shows that it has three smoke dischargers on the backside of the left shoulder.

OZ-06MS Leo
OZ Prize Colors (edited): https://i.imgur.com/V22P8cA.png

OZ-12SMS Taurus
OZ Prize Colors: https://i.imgur.com/GeEtRK7.png

The Prize color versions of the Leo and Taurus are what got this ball rolling in the first place, after I saw them in some Cross Rays attack videos. There was never any indication that Prize had their own custom units in the original manga, but they're counted on the original G-Unit series rather than being from the spin-off. Additionally, Tokita did the Taurus lineart but I had to make the Leo art myself.

Gundam Wing Dual Story: G-UNIT: Operation Galiarest

OZ-06MS Leo Rosshe Natono Custom
Unit type: custom mobile suit
Lineart: https://i.imgur.com/Yh8OFCC.png

OZ-16MSX-06X Prototype Scorpio
Unit type: prototype mobile suit
Operator(s): Galiarest Colony, White Fang
Equipment: test-type AI unit
Armaments: beam cannon (defenser net launcher) x 2, micromissiles
Lineart: https://i.imgur.com/MRbIjx2.png

Obviously, this is the prototype of the Scorpio from BFoP. Other than the addition of the battleship-caliber beam cannons and the AI unit on the back, it's just a recolor of the original. As such, Tokita credits Junya Ishigaki with the mechanical design rather than himself.

That's what I've got for now. To be honest I didn't even know about Operation Galiarest until I started on this little project; it's apparently a G-Unit sidestory (yo dawg, I heard you liked sidestories...) that focuses on two new G-Units developed from the Geminass and using data from Mercurius and Vayeate, Gundam Caster* and Gundam Pollux. However, information is mostly on Japanese websites since I don't think any scan groups have picked this one up; I'll get back with more when I can find it.

*Yes, I know it should be "Castor", but its name appears as "Caster" in official artwork. Japan does it again. :P

Nice findings! 8)

In case you wasn't aware of it, this manga is currently running on Gundam Ace and at least two chapters of it can be legally found for free on Comic Walker. If I'm not wrong, the name "Galiarest" should refer to a colony, but I admit that I don't remember well, so I have to check...
By the way, on the Comic Walker website there are also various chapters of other recent Gundam-related manga — inlcuding the original G-Unit by Tokita. However, the only one that constantly keeps its "complete" form (i.e. retaining all the published chapters) is the color edition of The Origin (still ongoing, and available also in the English version of the same site)

I could be wrong here, but Gundam Unicorn OVA 4, one of the Earth Federation Nemo units in the Dakar battle was using the 90 mm GM rifle which was used by various Federation units in 0083...

Ladies and gentlemen, **** has gotten weird.

Super Robot Wars DD
Format: mobile phone game (2019-)

XXXG-00W0 Wing Gundam Zero Rebellion
Lineart: https://i.imgur.com/FjFCxrr.png
Twin Buster Rifle: https://i.imgur.com/ANkOixJ.png
Pilot: Lelouch Lamperouge (aka Zero)
Mechanical Designer: Hajime Katoki (original Wing Zero design, new color scheme)

...Yes, this is Wing Zero piloted by Code Geass's Lelouch. It's part of Super Robot Wars DD's second crossover event (the first allowed you to have Amuro Ray pilot Mazinger Z), and to my knowledge it's the first true "crossover mecha" to ever come from the SRW franchise. Before this, the closest we got was some cross-timeline pilot swapping such as putting UC Gundam characters in the Turn A Gundam, or allowing Macross pilots to swap Valkyries regardless of their era of origin. As far as I know, other than the name and the color scheme, every other aspect is identical to the original Endless Waltz version.

Just wanna point out the Gusion Rebake and Full City mecha profiles should be updated to add in that they used 2 Smoothbore guns.

Mass Production Type Geminass

Apparently this is from either G-Unit or the new one AmuroNT1 did contributions for, but either way this isn't 'official' but more of a '1.5 Gundam Type Dark' situation. Basically the idea gets proposed of the Geminass being refined into something that can be mass produced and Odel (or Odin being the Geminass 01's pilot) ends up letting his imagination run wild

There's also a combined form for the Castor and Pollux (Will post pics when I can find them unless someone else has them already)

I wonder if anyone can actually create a full-on lineart version of that art. Would be an interesting bit to add to any future Gundam Wing fanfiction story. Or canon story if there is one in the works.

Not sure where I can put this, but there's a "decent" photo of the Tornado Gundam from SD Gundam G Generation Genesis.

The weapons laid out in the recent SD Gundam G Generation games released overseas consist of the following:

* Beam Saber
* Arm-Mounted Gatling Gun
* Diffuse Beam Cannon
* Beam Rifle
