  It's a HUGE friggin' gun, just about the biggest 1YW-era beam rifle I'd
ever seen till the Gerbera Tetra... I'd wager that the huge big butt on
the gun has got to be a giant ECAP (There doesn't seem to be any clip that
I can identify on that gun). If that's so, it might be a big weapon that
must be recharged _on_a_ship_ before it can be used again. I wonder if the
gun was completely exhausted after that 10-second cookie-cutter-from-hell

  How different is the name, wasn't it something like "GM Ground Use"? Of
course, 8MST is so whacked it might not be worth worrying about
