Thanks, Mark, for providing a detailed summary of essential technicality.

As for the beam deflection system on the FAZZ in 0088, it is actually a beam
coating, as briefed to Juudo by Aziranchi (not sure of the spelling, but he dates
the ill-fated Ciara in CCA). That coating is supposed to withstand weak beam
shots for a very brief time only, so it baffles me to see how FAZZ manages to
take all those beam shots from both Dooven Wolf and Quin Mantha, considering the
firepower of these two units are ranked among the highest of their time.
