        Which seems to be a reasonable size, for a 40m tall "MS". And this
is similar to a Zaku bazooka round (as stated in the MG manual). And which
would still blow a Gundam MS up *real* good if it connects.

        Good point. If this is the case, then Eva ammunition is in fact
really big battleship rounds (doh! a 72" round!), just loaded into an
automatic weapon (gah!). Just thinking about what a near miss will do to an
MS is already mind-boggling. And just consider how *thick* Eva's power cable
will be... =)

        Let's just do what someone suggested. Drop a colony on top of them.
