        Duh. This is confusing...

        That's the Romanji spelling.. I was wondering whether to call it
Commando or Command, but the manual puts it as Command. <shrugs> oh well. =)

        What's the reason for calling it a Commando, anyway? because it
carries 2 beam sabers? because of it's thrust to weight ratio? (IIRC, it's
better than a Zaku FZ's.. =)

        Probably ran out of space to print that. =)

        There are two pics there: one's a FA, the other's titled FSWS
Prototype. Anyone knows what that is?

        Yep. Looked at it carefully, it IS a beam rife.. No wonder it wasn't
shown in the show, Chris might have done a *LOT* of damage with that thing.
I think the booklet says that the power of the rifle has been boosted..

        Also, I did some Thrust-to-Weight ratio checking.. The Kampfer
actually clocks in at 2.0?? Whereas Alex is about 1.8.. Interestingly, the
08MST's 79G GM has a lower Thrust-to-Weight than the FZ...
