Counterattack - Beltorchika Children (based on his rejected first draft for the 1988 film Mobile Suit Gundam
Char's Counterattack), and published for three volumes from Kadokawa Sneaker Bunko from 1989 to 1990.
The story is set twelve years after The Second Neo Zeon War led by Char Aznable, and focuses on Bright Noa's
son Hathaway, who secretly acts as "Mufti Nabiyu Erin", the leader of a terrorist organization called "Mufti"
whose purpose is to assassinate The Earth Federation's leaders.
