I was always under the assumption that it the Boots..and whatever the other
portion was called was on very rudimentary auto..they sorta just 'home-in'
on the main Core Fighter, which makes the V series extremely easy to pick
off before it combines, doesn;t it? :)

One thing I just thought of..since the MSs aren't all that well armored, are
anti-MS Infantry of any use? I Imagine a typical MS to be pretty easy to
pick off if a good shot went right between the armor plating...
