Setsuna dispatches Graham with ease, the latter being caught off guard by the Gundams' advanced technology while Tieria returns to space with Gundam Virtue. The Union Army creates the Anti-Gundam Investigative Task Force, transferring Graham and Billy Katagiri from the MSWAD as official members. Meanwhile, Celestial Being launches surprise attacks in South Africa, over Taribia (formerly Venezuela and Guyana) in South America, and Ceylon. Setsuna faces off against the Human Reform League's Colonel Sergei Smirnov during an attack against HRL mobile suits. Everything seems to go as Celestial Being planned when a JNN broadcast reveals various militant factions in North Ireland have signed a peace treaty, ending years of fighting between themselves, the British Army and the PSNI.
