        Fair enough.. Still, they don't look too Experimental to me. =)
        I thought Experimental Zeon suits are labelled as YMS-XX rather than
MS-XXE? Then again, this _is_ 0080..

        I know. =) We can pretend though..=) Generally speaking, I'll assume
these have poorer performance than the E version, probably with changes in
equipment too.

        Hey, they'll have two to bite here. =) I think EFSF is a mouthful to
