Mobile Suit Victory Gundam 機動戦士Vガンダム (also known as V Gundam) is an anime television program set in the fictional universe of Gundam. It consists of 51 episodes, and was directed by Gundam creator Yoshiyuki Tomino.
The series is set in UC 0153, and succeeds the Federation and Crossbone Vanguard conflict of Gundam F-91. Therefore, it takes place well after the events of the Earth Federation versus Principality of Zeon conflict (which could be said to have ended with Char's Counterattack).
The greatly weakened Earth Federation comes under attack by the BESPA forces of the spaceborn Zanscare Empire; only the AEUG-like League Militaire stands in their way. The mass-produced Victory Gundam is the League Militaire's secret weapon against the invading BESPA. (Wikipedia)
