If by "this one" you meant the MG GM manual, you might have missed the
"..." that followed the 3rd fleet, meaning there were more. In fact it
goes from 3rd Fleet all the way to the 13th Autonomous Fleet, which IIRC is
the WB?

I think this is the first time I ever saw a GM Cannon in space. Based on
the MSV stuff I thought GM Cannons are limited in-atmosphere theaters,
mainly in North America?

Cool, since Katoki is obviously having problem coming up with his own
version, if Bandai asked him to do a MG treatment at all.
