i don't know how beam-melee weapons in Wing gundam are powered but from
all i've been able ot find out in UC and thus i have assumed in other
alternate timelines they are powered by a rechargable e-cap in the
hilt.. recharged by sticking it in it's holder (usualy the backpack but
other locations have been used)


come to think of it i think Wing Gundma and Wing Gundam zero use that
system as well, why else would Heero's beam saber suddenly go out before
he could slash the power-core of that Libra section?
