but by doing so will downgrade Kampfer to Rick Doms,
as less power output also reduced its maximum weapon
load, & Kampfer's effectiveness lies on its mid-range
in which destructions (bazookas & panzer fausts), not
precision (beam rifles), is emphazied here.

i don't think Zeon's heat weapons are self-powered as
Gundam's beam sabres (as demonstrated by GP02 in
0083), but since Kampfer has beam sabres, it probably
has auxiliary thermal link on its palms to 'heat it

But remember that the original 120mm Zaku machine gun
didn't make a dent on Amuro's RX-78 in 0079. Judging
from the chuck set-ups & the logical flow of Cyclops
Team's plan, it should be some kind of anti-MS weapons
other than Chain-Mines, such as the cracker grenades,
or as you said, another spare shotgun for Kampfer to
try his luck if all things fail :) 90mm machine gun is
not possible 'cos it's too bulky for the truck & it
takes time to load the magazine; nor a beam rifle as
Kampfer's energy will be close to depletion by that

The 'E' stands for 'Experimental', as Zugock-E &
Kampfer are both experimental/prototype mechas, far
superior than the previous models (in case of
& being thrown into the fire near the end of OYW.
