    Wing Zero Custom is re-entryable only when the wings are enclosed around
it, During the fight with the Nataku, W0C was without that protection for
awhile. That and the high altitude free fall into the ocean didn't do it much
good. Not to mention the fact that The twin buster rifle drains a large
amount of power(Supposedly it overheats after 3 shots or something, but don't
quote me on that, I heard it on this list a while ago, Maybe Mark or -Z- can
shed some light on that). The W0C was visibilly bruised when it re-emerged
from the ocean.

    The physics of EW is not that inconsistent from GW, notice that in GW the
only shots being fired at the Gundams are the silly machine gun of the Leo,
and the Wing Boys do dodge Buster Rifle shots(if you recall Trowa+Heero in
Vayeate+Mericurius Vs. Quatrre in the W0).
    In GW the 5-Gundams were fighting just groups of say, 10-20 Leos and
Aries(which are not that great in the first place with their silly machine
guns), and the 5 Boys were out for blood, showing no mercy to enemy pilots.
In EW, Serpents are much better than the previous bad-guy mechas, and the
Boys w/Zechs+Noin were trying hard not to injure enemy pilots.
