That would click with everything we've heard about this MS so far... the
Turn A is supposed to be pretty gimmicky and Rolan's having a tough time
figuring it out and it's supposed to be full of mystery and everything...
this theory actually makes sense!

Oh wonderful, I can see it now... Gundam is de-evolving into Treknobabble.
Soon, it's be the "magic particle of the week" syndrome that Rolan will have
to use to beat the week's enemy MS. "I know, let's spray the target with
pixie dust from the bussard collectors!" ^_^

I'm guessing that the powerplant on this thing is so foreign and alien to
the Earthers, that this is simply the best estimate they can come up with
for its power rating. It may have just a single, steady power output... but
the "primitives" on Earth can't quite nail down what it is yet.

(regarding the Dog Whistle Missile ^_^)

Yes, Gundam is definitely now de-evolving... we're lowering ourselves to
Mazinger Z gimmicks... grrr...
