Ha ha, I was kidding. But using your imagination is fun, yes? Let me just
say that no way could (for argument's sake) say 8 gundams range and hit that
many tie fighters all at once, shieldless or not. Hits would be made, those
things are too small and maneuverable to get whacked like approaching Zakus.
One hit and they're gone, but I don't see them being completely useless.


"They exit quickly.  The ship explodes, which stops all the droids and
 just makes everything great, because it's always enjoyable when a
 serious conflict is resolved with a slapstick accident."
