I think so, too. For Zakus and Doms for example, I
couldn't imagine the pilots bothered to keep the
launching tubes when they headed home. The idea of MS
panzer faust is to provide a desposable weapon once it
was used up to reduce MS's load for return/escape,
etc. Kampfer serves as the best example, as all of its
weapons (shot guns, bazookas, panzer fausts) were
meant to be thrown away for hit and run tactics.
