Not necessarily so. "Gelgoog" has twin-beam sword /
beam naginata which is just as powerful as Gundam/GMs'
beam sabre (see Gato's "Gelgoog" hacked a GM in two
halves in the opening of "0083").

Again, Gelgoog has twin beam sword, and the recent
retcon of MG "Rick Dom" shows it has beam bazooka /
beam launcher. So GMs are not all adventageous...

It's true that GM's armor is a cheaper version than
that of Gundam, but it's still tougher than the shield
it helds. Zaku's heat hawk can dent GM's shield, &
Gouf's heat sabre hacked off Gundam's shield in half.
A couple of powerful shell hits can blown away the
shield, but it needs a few more to cripple GM's armor.

Sure, but GMs are Federal Force's very own cannon
fodder compare to Zeon's Zakus. Oh well, since you are
a GM fan, I won't say more... :P

I would sneak out with a Gundam too if I piloted the
2nd rate GM long enough... Just ask Terry Sanders of
the "08th MS Team" what he thinks of GM and Gundam :)
