  Although, since Sunrise officially named it the Earth Federation Space
Force, the model guys have had to retcon UNT SPACY into some weird
special-projects agency. Which doesn't quite explain why it's stamped onto
everything from service pistols to underwear in 0080 and 0083. ;-)

  SUMO is an acronym too, according to the kit manual. Too bad they never
did kits of the Wad, Gozzo, et al, or they'd probably have stupid acronyms
as well...

  The Flat's "MY" engine must be for "Minovsky" (or "Minovsky-Ionesco"?). No
idea what the other stuff might stand for, though.
