that some of them are loaded in by the belt, like spooling? i think this
was what i saw in 0083, I'll have to check again.

So Amuro went through it that fast. so is this a standard for most
gundams? if that's the case, then good old HeavyArms from GW must be in a
lot of trouble a few minutes after deployment, unless he's got an ammo dump
travelling with him.
