Well the core fighter of RX series were intended to be
an escape device, but in V Gundam, the CoreFighters
are utilitzed effectively with the top or bottom parts
of MS torso to form air-combat units depending on the
circumstances. Another good reason for transforming
MS, as demonstrated in V Gundam, was that you can
always dispose the damaged torso parts and reintegrate
with a fresh body and joib back the battlefront very
quickly. Since by now these torsos can be mass
produced at low cost, the aim of mass-producing top
notch MS like Gundam is no longer a pipe dream, as
long as you have the money to mass produce
