I don't see any MS that the Jions have that was better than the RX-78-2 even
towards the end of the one year war. Even in the hands of an ace like Char
the Gelgogg was soundly defeated in one-on-one combat. It was only the
experimental Newtype MAs like the Elmeth and the Bra-Brow that necessitated
the Magenet Coating upgrade to the RX-78. It was only the experimental
Ziongg that managed to fight Gundam to a draw. But in terms of MS I beleive
the RX-78 was still the best of breed.

I, for one, was really disappointed that Gato did not pilot a Perfect Ziongg
against Kou's RX-78 GP03. NOW that would be a "rematch" I'd want to see!
