  And the fact that the NT-1 lacked the CF really makes you think that the
Feds abandoned the idea entirely (another reason why the GP-01 from 0083
was screwed up!) And by the ZG era with the Mk.II gundam you can see that
they've completely thrown out the idea of a CF.

  Well, I believe with the ZZG we entered the era of the "Split-Combiner"
MS that could break up and reconfigure into various transformer/voltron
style blocks... the CF (Often the upper torso of the robot instead of a
transformable 'inner section') was just another part of this mumbo-jumbo

  I think they're supposed to be re-entry capable.... though I don't think
they can make it into space on their own!
