  Me neither. It's usually claimed that the FSWS project, and the Full Armor
Type, were canceled; some MSV books claim that the box art illos of the Full
Armor Type are computer simulations. If so, then they could get by with only
four RX-78 units (including the Alex).

  Makes sense. You can consider them as subcategories of the F type, or
break 'em out separately.

  No idea if it was ever built, or was just a design concept. Given the late
advent of the Kaempfer, I suspect the latter.

  Nope. It may well have parted ways with Delaz after leaving the
battlefield. Most of the Gwazin-class ships are pretty well acounted for.
