In the MS Encyclopaedia 98, the ZMSV shows that there are three variants of
the ZG protype, all with the model stamp MSZ-006. hat makesit at least 6
protypes before a the 'final' protoype (ZG) was. What I would like to know
now is what is ZG supposed to have evolved to? As far as I can see, mass
production of ZG never saw the light of day. Only a few ZPlus ever made,
and I am convinced that ReGZ was never mass produced.

hmm, do you think Camille was mildy autistic or even a mild savant.
