Don't forget the VF-17's stealth capabilities and if the rifle is a laser in the
traditional sense, it'll go right thru The Planet defensors, just like the
lasers used by Treize's forces at the end of wing. The VFs could dodge the slow
charging Buster cannon as well.

If it were purely mecha I'd give an advantage to the VF-17s, but I don't think
the Black Trinary are quite as clever as Max and Millia. I think Max would do
something sneaky and win. However since Millia isn't quite as good as Max (He
beat her twice) and the Trinary both have a numerical advantage and work
extremely well as a team, I'll call it a draw.

No contest. The Meltran kick ass. The Q-rau is probably my favorite bad-guy
mecha of all time. There's simply nothing more maneuverable. I love playing
Quake II against a level full of Queadluun-Rau erasor bots. (Using my Millia
sound pack of course. ^_^)

Delaz's boot licker is history.

Heh, heh couldn't agree more. Glad to see Kou hatred has it's limits.
