As to the bazooka caliber issue...

  The 880mm bazooka rounds cited for the Dom Tropen's "raketen bazooka"
in 0083 were subsequently rationalized in the MG Dom kit manual. While
the regular "giant bazooka" shells are 360mm in diameter, the raketen
bazooka fires rockets, which are described in terms of length; e.g. these
shells are 880mm _long_.

  While a human-scale bazooka scaled up to MS size would indeed fire
shells about 900mm in diameter, mobile suit bazookas are more akin to
multi-round rocket launchers. Their shells range from 280mm (Zaku
bazooka) to 380mm (Gundam's hyper bazooka), with 360mm (Dom bazooka,
Gundam Mark II hyper bazooka) being fairly standard.
