    Probably it's because it was never in Titans' intention to use Newtypes
or artificial Newtypes "extensively", so they are just probably "testing the
water" with various MA and stuff. Besides, I believe Quebeley was in the
design stage for a long time (it was still in development when Char was in
Axis), and it was just finished near the end of Zeta (the first time Haman
appears, Quebeley didn't make an appearance yet. It was the second time
Haman met with AEUG that Haman showed up with the Quebeley.

    I don't think Titans "absorbed" the NT research group - more like those
group were absorbed into labs that were "close" to Titans....

    Really? I was just curious why Char finally get his hand on a better MS
when they just got their hands on the Gundam Mk-IIs....

    Agreed. I still wonder when any official source would confirm the use of
Bio sensors....

    I wonder what does that thing do - doesn't seem like it's doing

    I was just wondering why Judo cannot seems to "trigger" that bio-sensor,
and that with Puru, who was on Zeta a few times, should be able to "sense"
that bio-sensor, since she has been using psycommu for a while. Besides,
that whole gang, like Roux and Elle, are all Newtypes and they never seems
to be able to use that bio-sensor....

    That's what I meant - there seems to be no use for a bio-sensor like
device in those MS....
