He and Isamu mounted fold boosters on their units. That, IMO, is what's a big deal; not that a valk can fold - any valk can, so long as they mount fold boosters, we've seen it happening - but rather than this valk can do so without fold boosters.

As to whether Mikhail's greater rate of fire is advantageous over the possible greater individual power of Klan's cannon, it's worth noting that when the US military had the option between single-shot/hi-power and rapid-fire/low-power, they went with option 2, choosing the M16 over the M14.
