        Not to mention a lucky beam hit on the Musai will wipe out a entire
cadre of NTs. I think even the Zeon High command will blanch ar the thought
of losing so many NTs at one go. Such a "psyker" ship will be a very
tempting target.

        I'm not saying that this is a bad idea, because I don't think
dumping a NT into a specially modified suit and sending him/ her out is a
good idea too. Then again, the Elemeth's performance more than justifies its

        The Elemeth has no I-field, IIRC. It does have "backup" beam
cannons, but no arms, etc. so I won't know whether it has beam sabers. IIRC,
an I-field is not available until 0083, on the Neo-Axis and the GP03, so in
the OYW they are non-existent.
