In 08th MS Team's first episode, doesn't the Zaku II overheat and blow up due
to its entangled fight with a Ball? I've watched that seen many times, and I
cannot identify a reason why the Zak blew up at all, other than the Zak's
pilot setting a self-destruct. Which, BTW, starts me thinking about the fight
between the GP01-fb and the GP02a. Neither one took any crippling damage, but
they both shut down and blew up a few minutes later. Of course, having a GM
Custom blow up from just a "flesh" wound was kind of an example on how
fragile a Mobile Suit really is.
