  That's Char's S type Zaku, the one he's using as the TV series begins,
not the C type Zaku he used during the Ruum Campaign. (And, as I
mentioned, the PG Char's Zaku specs give it a further thrust reduction...
now it's barely 15% higher than a standard Zaku, presumably so as not to
eclipse the R type Zaku and the Rick Dom.)

  The ship-to-ship jumping may have some merit, but if they think that he
had the same high-speed Zaku during the Ruum Campaign, then they're
mistaken. As for the 5-ship score, one shouldn't underestimate the use of
nuclear warheads as a contributing factor. ;-)
