For that matter, most of the 0080 designs look somewhat overdesigned for
the era...

Remember that 0080 takes place entirely inside or near a colony, except
for the opening sequence and the scenes at Grenada. It's possible that
the gravity is slightly lighter, allowing the Zaku to hover. However,
if you look at the specs on the FZ, it has a significantly higher level
of thrust as well... It's entirely possible that the FZ and the 0083
Zaku FII, being late 1YW designs, were upgraded to be able to do this...

Hince, in GundamMUSH, Newtypes are going to be extremely rare...
