Dom & Dom-Tropen sure do

my thinking was: if the Neo-Zeon come up w/ Dreissen,
then they must have known something about Dom's
hovering ability. Kapool is developed from Gog and
Hygog (and at least it works well in water for a
amphibious MS made by spacenoids!). Anyway, that means
most of the space MS should be pre-adjusted to do any
kind of flying under Earth atmosphere...
