How fast is the Hyaku Shiki really?

I noticed that the Zeta Gundam's thruster output is listed on the Japanese wikipedia as the sum of the skirt and leg thrusters.

But for the Hyaku Shiki it seems to be the four thrusters on the backpack, judging by the uniformity.

Are there any specs on the rest of the Hyaku Shiki's skirt, side skirt, and leg thrusters? It seems to use them somewhat frequently on Earth, and sometimes in space.

Regardless, it seems odd to exclude those figures for the Hyaku Shiki but not for the Zeta, when they're related designs. The Zeta's also missing a value for its fin thruster that it seems to use often, or at least it's showing some sort of thrust coming from its back in many scenes, and it's seen using them in the opening.

Not really?
You get the 74800kg figure which is 400kg more than 4x18600kg so one will expects those might add up to being just a mere 400kg. XD

Re: How fast is the Hyaku Shiki really?

So... that's not "how fast is the Hyaku Shiki", that's "how much thrust does the Hyaku Shiki have?".

Unfortunately even the oldest sources I have list only the sum of the four main engines for the Hyaku Shiki.
