    Are you sure about the part about Bio-Computer? I always thought that it
was similar to Bio-Sensor in that it was "helping" the pilot to control the
MS by channeling the pilot's thought into the computer, therefore shortening
the time for the pilot to do something (he just had to think, don't have to
move the stick and stuff), except that it works with non-Newtype, unlike
Bio-Sensor.... Of course, I could be wrong, just want to make sure....

    For Psycho Gundam, it is mainly used for controlling the MS itself,
since there isn't any "Newtype" weapons on Psycho Gundam.... I always
thought Psycho Gundam and its variation require a Newtype to be a pilot
because it is so complicated that it need pilot's input via brainwaves and
conventional means to pilot it effectively....

    And it seems to be the equipment needed for "weak" Newtypes like Char
and Amuro to control Newtype weapons like Funnels....

    Although I believe Bio-computer can be used like that, I seriously doubt
its main use is that. Why would SNRI put something that seems to be not very
useful in MS combat to a prototype front line MS? They have to put that face
mask thing on F91 just to work off the heat generated by the Bio-Computer,
something I seriously doubt they would do for component that is
