depends on how wide the streets are i should guess

just checked the MECHADOMAIN.. yup, Gundanium

 maybe Treize wasn't using much of the Taurus in the White Fang
confrontation because most of them were already converted by the
Romafeller Foundation (before Treize split away anyway) into Mobile Doll
systems - we do see an abundance of Tauruses converted into Mobile Dolls
when the battle moves in to space and maybe more than enough of them
were destroyed, and the remaining units converted into Mobile Dolls were
simply not Treize's type, so maybe that's the reason he just fielded
space type Leos.

but the Taurus Mobile dolls sitll had all their cockpit systems intact
(at least form what i saw) if Treize had Taurus units mobile dolls or
not wouldn't it be jsut a matter of dumpingthe Mobile Doll programming
and reinstalling the original taurus OS?
