i think the vents on the chest are to ventilate the Reactor, i mean they
have to cool down that reactor somehow and we can see steam cóming from this
vent in 08thMS mand i seriously doubt that this one vent is supposed to be
an air intake of any kind
but another thing :
where are the vents on the dom, i mean it can hover above the ground but has
no intakes anywhere ????
