        Yeah, cool scene. Really shows MSes as a military team, not a
gung-ho super-mecha. =P

        AFAIK, one scene only. I only notice it because Nightingale pointed

        Maybe a retrofit for the FZ? the F version shouldn't be able to do
this, but maybe desert Zakus.. which might explain the 0083 Zakus.

cluttering up the storyline. =P
