Yeah, the Locust in BTech is the Ostsol from Crusher Joe and one of the Leopards (I forget which one and I don't feel like pulling out my copy of Crusher Joe the Movie) is also. The Ostsol, Ostroc and Ostscout in BTech were all taken from the Zentreadi battlepod and the Marauder is, of course, the officer pod. Guess they just liked the name Ostsol, and so kept it for one of their mechs.
