Well Speaking of which the same Idea goes behind the heat saber, It can still
cut a GM up real good, I mean in such a big war I doubt you'll run into a
Gundam that easily. Oh yeah, you guys are saying that the Dom is supposed to
be some kind of support unit? Well I guess that make a lot of sense, but if so
why does it have a melee weapon like the Heat Saber, the Guncannon serves
almost the same purpose.
