        Actually, a long range snipe doesn't seem like Cima's style, so it's
probably a over-powered rifle.. which might explain some of her shock when
here shots didn't kill GP-01 immediately. =) She tends to flirt around
outside the effective zone of the enemy, then dart straight in for a kill,
so a long-range gun is not as useful as a powerful gun... she might need the
butt-port for extra power to shot through a Cap Ship lengthwise.. =) As for
the size, I have no comparison, so I won't know.
