  <laffs> Actually, it's kind of the opposite - these are seven-year-old
suits with modern beam rifles. When the GM Cannon, GM Sniper Custom, et al
showed up in Z Gundam, they were re-armed with GM II beam rifles. The
original MSVs were equipped with beam spray guns and antique One Year
War-era beam weapons. The GM Quell, since it predates the GM II, is
presumably the first mobile suit to use this rifle.
