If you just look at the stats, the GM can outperform the earlier Zion suits.
The reason we both think it sucks is because most GM pilots are new recruits
and do not have the benefit of getting a headstart during the OYW piloting
MS in actual combat. Therefore, a veteran pilot in a crappier suit actually
can kick the amateur's butt even though he is piloting a superior suit.
