Wo ho! Mark speaks! I havn't seen you here in ages. I've personally been
content lurking and chuckling at the posts :P But since you came out of the
woodworks, I suppose I have to post atleast once.. :P the feddies seem to
have a fetish with Zion MS after the war, they converted numerous for their
own use.. eg: Flying type Gufu, Gelbaldy Beta, Gelgoog Marine (in 0083),
Zaku Mariner, Zaku II Fs (though why they didn't convert the vastly more
powerful FZ version is weird) to name just a few. I don't think they ever
had a real problem with aesthetics (they put up with the Ball for Pete's
sake!), Anaheim is the one with the aesthetics fetish.

even then.. I don't think the Ksi and the Penelope were that small. I
remember them being quite big, and heavy.. and the Psycho Gundam Mk 2 I
think still holds the record for the heaviest MS of all time.. at something
like 280 tons!

well the Quin Mantha.. in essence, is still a MS, not an MA.. it has
something those MAs don't.. legs. I don't think the Quin Mantha was built to
compete with the Psycho Gundams.. but the Geymalk and the Doven wolf,
monstrosity in their own right. It is ofcourse.. superior to both.
