As I recall though, as Gato and his men were heading for the recovery ship,
Gato managed to keep up with the Zeon MS when they were using their hover
systems. Considering they were in kind of a hurry to get away from Burning
and the gang, wouldn't the Zeon MS being moving close to top speed? Would
this be considered a close encounter of an MS running at it's top speed?
