        I could have sworn the Zakus carry 280mm rounds, or up, but not a
880mm -- that's *really* big!

        Remember, most MS "small arms" are 90mm.. 280mm is, by comparison, a
very large calibur. 880mm is ridiculous. =)

        As for EVA, just take it in perspective. If the EVA is really 40m
tall, then it's rifle is probably the equivalent of a MS Bazooka. One decent
hit from it will tear limbs off an MS. And it's on *full auto*.

        On the plus side, an MS is smaller, and harder to hit. =)

        Can we just let this thread die? The two are basically different in
design philosophy; comparing the two is rather illogical..
