NOt a bad idea. Actually, it would provide a more balaced show if there
were an episode or two that focussed on the mechanics. A sort of
"Patlabor" style episode.

Ah, the perennial fan's dream. But given the average life expectancy of
the GM pilot, it may not be a long series. OTOH, a series of one-shot
OVAs may nicely capture the whole insanity of war thing. Anyone see
Leiji Matsumoto's "The Cockpit"?

Another good one-shot series... Especially if it happens in one of the
rare "peaceful" times in the UC-verse. Between CCA and F-91, perhaps?
