        I think a fair number of people here agree that the eye-cams are
pheriphery vision. Some suggest that they are stereoscopic cameras, for use
in targetting.

        BTW, I read in the old Gundam novels that the GM also have a
twin-eye camera system, just that it's behind a one-piece faceplate. How
true is this?

        There's a theory that the V-Fin are directional antennas -- you
point the V-Fin in the direction of the transmission to get a better
reception. It makes sense actually, but is probably not the original intent
of the designer.
