right, the pilot dosn't nessicarily directly control the limbs, the
AMBCS does that, and on the ground a command to go foreward could have
your MS kicking it's feet in space while a space configured OS would
likely knock itself smack onto it's face with the boot from it's main
thrusters from the same command.. that's why Kou should have listened to
Nina about the calculations
