I've got a bit of a problem with your concept of "prototype in the Japanese
sense of the word." It seems to me that in real life Japanese technology
proceeds in an evolutionary manner, with each model a minor improvement on
what has gone before, rather than the stuff everyting we can possibly fit in
and make a great technological leap forward strategy of the Gundam.
