that's exactly the case in "0080", in which the
magazines for GM's 90mm machine guns r just the paltry
20 rounds, so they better carry a few spares if they
don't wanna get killed in no time.

The 1:100 MG "Dom" shows that it can clip on a 90mm
machine gun + spare magazines when it carries the
hyper bazooka by hand. it better be, 'cos the hyper
bazooka only has 5 rounds & after that the Doms r left
to their own devices.
