Welp, this is my headcanon now too.
It just kinda ticked me off that both Crimson Typhoon and Cherno Alpha got killed maybe five minutes in to the climactic fight.
I thought I was in love when I saw them striding in sync together with their bleached hair and russian accents....and then I saw their mecha. And I knew it was too awesome too last.
And now it's canon.
Love it as usual!
