 cruel yes, but I can do extrapolation studies which will give reasonably

 that Rolan was the only one sent down. I must have missed some posts

 Moustashe you mean hehehehe. The placement of the V fin has some humour
 attached to it :)

 well 17 is physiologically not a kid anymore. Perhaps in a

I'll try to explain Nano tech. Its basically an intelligent colony of
microscopic machines that can reproduce themselves. So the Nanoskin robot is
made out of thousands of these machines. Say, a hole is blown though this
robots torso, the nanomachines will repair all the damage to this robot. I
assume the nano machine colony that this robot is made of, could also
regenerate limbs and maybe minimize damage to the robot, before the nano's
start their repair. This robot is basically invincible, well maybe not totally
invincible. This could explain the new Gundams gun, because a weapon needs to
be able to reverse or stop the nano machines, to be able to even seriously
damage a nano machine robot. or maybe not, since this robot seems to be on the
new Gundams side.
