Well, given that they are CE based, there is nothing wrong with that given how you could argue that all the products down the Forbidden -family tree are Gundams too. Certainly their armaments fit MP units in the sense that it is nothing cheesy or overtly fancy and energy consuming.
Not excactly mass production, something like limited production or like that, Victory Strike does not have more than ten or dozen units produced, Marksman Buster about half of that number.
