I always thought of the term 'customize' is something
in line of 'tailor made' in today's term, but for MS,
it'll be either make to measure (like Camille's Zeta
Gundam), or like you've said, adding or substracting.
For Mashma's AMX-011S, it has a different head with
head vulcans replaced the nozzle beam cannon, plus a
new (and big) skirt armor with booster, different
shoulder armor, bigger & more powerful backpack, and a
beam rifle that was used for a few seconds in the TV
show. Too bad the S type has just 1 unit (for Mashma),
otherwise 'modified' will fit the MS like the ultra
limited RGM-79N...

So Killing did not commit suicide after all - he was
wiped out by the Fed's MS team led by the Full Armor
Gundam as shown in the 0080 manga! (haha)
