  I'd figure this includes a lot of rocket-assisted jumping (like in the
first episode of 0083). Otherwise I can't believe it would be so close to
the Dom's hover speed, or that it would be that much faster than a GM or

  Since the GP02 is the only one of the pack that isn't hover-capable,
presumably the Xamel and Dom Tropens are idling along so that they don't
