Orguss Ships Question

Can anyone help me identify the 3 ships in this image? I'm guessing they showed up in the 7th or 8th episode.

Mystery solved! An online friend in the UK says the top is a recreational boat that's used by the Glomar, the 2nd is an Emaan freighter and the bottom is an Emaan submarine.

???

This I gotta see- I don't remember an Emaan Submarine ever in the series. Most of the sea action was in the atlantic- the Emaan are on the pacific coast.

There is a page in the first This Is Animation The Select book that shows 3 ships. Their captions don't have clear names so I got in touch with my UK friend and he read the captions. He told me what they were and then said he didn't remember seeing any of them in the Orguss TV show. He thinks they are designs that never got used in the show. Still, they're in the books mixed in with all the other designs so I decided to include them.

Talked about this in the news thread.

It's likely they're ships from when the Glomar stops over in Gibraltar.
