I'd be kinda delighted if it was true, it would fit in with the V-Gundam
universe where the VG had the M-C system, though not with any of the
subsequent AC universes where such tech simply didn't exist.
As for Gimmicky, I've ehard that Rolaids is having a hard time piloting
the damn thing, but I also heard that in the first episode the Gundam
pilotted _itself_ to attack the Wadoms! (that bugs me).

And of course, he's got a Special Missile pre-loaded with that particle!
Yippe! What you wanna bet that his 'finishing move' is going to be
"Multi-Missiru RAUNCH!" Heh heh.
(seriously, Turn-A doesn't sound THAT bad so far, but it's still fun to
make fun of the Gundam itself....)

Hey, that explanation makes alot of sense, I can deal with that! Or
perhaps the generator has variable power settings, depending on the power
_requirement_. Or perhaps that's just it's average power, it can drop down
lower for 'idling' or increase for "Full Combat Power" etc...

Heh heh heh!
Well, there's no way Turn-A can sink this low... but even so, we're in
it for the ride!
