Matt, defender of stuff that is pretty cool! (mhanyo1@umbc.edu)

Thought about this some more this afternoon while watching Macross Plus.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but hasn't it been concluded that the RX-178
development project was going on around the same time AE's GP project
(0083)? If it was, couldn't one naturally assume that had she continued to
be a test pilot, she would have been assigned to it? Or something similar,
at least?
