The Barzam is in itself an oxymoron: it is a Federation mobile suit but with the signature monoeye-sensor of Zeon units and it looks nothing like the RX-178 Gundam Mk-II that it was based off, other than the Titans colour scheme. The various design features and characteristics give the Barzam a bestial, oddly appealing look, being the love-child of Federation and Zeon engineering.

[Custom] Bandai HGIBO 1/144 V08-1228 Grimgerde Vanguard [Anti Mobile Armor Combat Equipment] (Customised Build)
The Grimgerde came out of nowhere to kick ass in the first season of the Iron Blooded Orphans anime, but sadly relinquished its place on the show to become the Helmwige Reincar, which was eventually wrecked. Nevertheless, the Grimgerde made such a showy impact that the customised Grimgerdes have not stopped coming.
The Draken III is arguably a masterpiece of variable fighter (VF) design, shifting from a sleek delta-shaped fighter mode to a walking tank Gerwalk and finally to the slender, Anubis-esque Battroid form. As compared to the protagonist Siegfried, the dark and brooding Draken III captured my attention (and money).

Every now and then, I get a wild but very doable idea for a Gunpla custom, and this time, it is a GM Ground Type retrofitted for urban combat. Inspired by the real-world TUSK (Tank Urban Survival Kit) that the US Army used for the venerable M1 Abrams in the Middle East, the MUSK Equipped GM Ground Type serves the same purpose: as the spearhead in a push for urban centers.

[Gallery] Bandai HGIBO 1/144 ASW-G-01 Gundam Bael (Calamity War Rollout Ver. - Agnika Kaieru Use) with Ulfbert Claymore
As certain engagements required heavier weaponry than a pair of swords, Agnika Kaieru would sometimes lift the massive Ulfbert Claymore from its ceremonial docking at Vingolf, Gjallarhorn's headquarters on Earth, and use the weapon to bring down contingents of Mobile Armors and Mobile Workers by himself.
Basically the closest IBO-universe analog of the Titans (in the eyes of the commoner at least), the Gjallarhorn Outer Earth Regulatory Fleet relied on its overwhelming military superiority to quell dissent and maintain law and order. With a huge stable of Halfbeak-class warships and their assigned squadrons of Graze mobile suits, the OERT reserved a trump card for more dire engagements.
