Plus, Gundam GP02 is never designed for long range combat against MS. It's
target has always been Capital ships. For that purpose, it only has 2
vulcan cannons and 2 Beam saber, both are considered close quarter self
defense weapon. GP01 was designed to be the escort for GP02, that's why
it's armed with beam rifle. It's a testiment of how poor Kou's piloting
skill that he cannot bag GP02, sort of like a F15 failing to shoot down a
FA111 in a close dogfight.
