Are the Rozen Zulu and the Sinanju's bazooka ever going to appear in episode 5?

Looks like they appear during the ending credits(like OVA 3), Rozen Zulu is guaranteed.
Since we'll be getting complete Spoilers on the 13th let's guess who's the surprise MS. It can only be these ones: Zeta Plus(95% sure), Gaplant Kai(4%), Barzam(1%). All fit the battle location and are 6 letter in katakana, besides not already having a HGUC model.

It appears while the Unicorns have to rely on Base Jabbers in the high altitude fight, the Ankushas, like the Asshimar, can transform into MS mode briefly for combat and then revert back to MA. Both the Gaplant and Asshimar were classified as TMAs for this reason. Most likely the Delta Plus could do something similar.

Wasn't the Gaplant Kai just a mobile armor?

Yes, it could not transform and was designed for high altitude combat.

It only cut through the joints of Shambloo which are obvious weak points. You can still see the scorch marks on the armored parts. I think the point of that scene is to actually show how accurate the fin rifle is.

Upcoming UC MSV?? The old design kinda matches the black silhouette(inspiration wise), so we're getting the Kraken Zulu with an even bigger booster. Perhaps Angelo will arrive first at the Laplace remains with this or it's for the reentry battle.

I wouldn't say "obvious weak points" because how would she know what that was? Besides, she's aiming at the Delta Plus, not the Shambo. (She wasn't aiming at the joints.)

It showcases the power output of the Beam Smart Gun.

Also, the Shamblo was already destroyed/"turned off" so it didn't have its I-Field (did it have an I-field?) and Reflectors to deflect it. So, it was just a metal frame. Which was sliced in twine.

From this month's IDTC article: Banshee has sensor range of 23500, superior to the Unicorn's 22000. Other stats are the same, besides the obvious h/w.

Well, I dont' know if she was intentionally aiming for the the joints. But it seems that's what was cut through. You can still see the glowing marks on the armor. The MA collapsed not because the beam slicing it into pieces but on its own weight because the two arms that were supporting it were cut. All the info about the Armored BS pimps about its predictive accuracy but not firepower in particular, so I just assume Marida was doing that on purpose. I don't think she was particularly trying to destroy the Riddhe either, otherwise she would have finished Riddhe off before going for Banagher instead of jsut letting him be trapped.

Has anyone seen any scans of Anksha's manual yet? I am curious about the cockpit location. Asshimar had it near the head, and it's accessed from the head. But it looks like Anksha is supposed to have a proper torso cockpit, unless it's just a dud like Dijeh's "cockpit hatch". The pilot won't be able to get out from a regular cockpit in MA mode though..

Rozen Zulu anime changes:
-Added visible thrusters on shoulder armor
-Small design change on the shield where the Hamma Hamma had the space mine launcher, perhaps the Rozen will have it also.

The Jegan A2 is supposed to be the CCA version upgraded?
The Rezel has limiters off?
