Hmm. never noticed that.. Thanks for pointing it out.

IIRC, in the African desert battle, those "bats" were actually
additional thrusters for the Zakus to reach the Albion's bridge for an attack.
I recall someone here mentioning that the F2s are actually a
catch-all Zaku design for 0083, so the Zakus in the deserts may actually be
D-types, hence needing the additional thrusters. Of course, there's no
gurantee that a normal F -type Zaku could have jumped that high...

Might be simply additional armour.

Probably not. In Gundam Mechanics II it is labelled as being a 120mm
machinegun. It's probably a 120mm with a different stock, much like some of
the M16s out there nowadays.
