  Yep! And even the Gelgoog probably isn't a match for specialty GMs like
the GM-Sniper or GM-Cannon.

  Yeah, it's rifle seems on-par with the original Gundam's gun, though you
can't really see where the ECAP is supposed to be...

  Right, and the fact that the Zions spared 'no expense' with the Gelgoog
is the major reason why the Gelgoog was overpriced, behind schedule, and
sucked up Zion's best and brightest pilots for testing when they should
have been kicking butt in Rick-Doms or Zaku-Rs fighting the Federation!
