Neither do I. Both GP01 & GP02 were developed for very
different combat purposes & they do not compliment
each other. Moreover, how can you compare a green
rookie with a ace pilot from the One Year War? If you
have watched 0079 (the original Gundam series) priored
to watching 0083 & know more about the RX-78, I'm sure
you'll understand what a close-combat mobile suit like
GP01 is about.
