I'm curious though...why didn't he stock FZs instead of F2s? I would suspect
it's because a rather limited number of FZs were made at Granada, since Zaku
production was not as strong as those of Doms toward the end of the war.
This would also make sense considering the probable fact that FZs were
probably rather powerful-I mean, just look at what Bernie did to the Alex!
Also, the fact that Bandai/Sunrise probably wanted to introduce a new Zaku
variant, since a Zaku is probably more of a cult figure than the Dom

  I expect Delaz just ditched them at Granada and replaced them with
shiny new versions. Both the Zaku F2 and the Rick Dom II are listed as
being produced at Granada, and as we've discussed before, the 0083
opening animation shows Delaz gathering his forces above Granada after
abandoning A Bao A Qu. With a limited number of ships and hangar slots,
it makes sense for him to fill them with the best mobile suits he could
