Re: Dijeh ground only MS?

Yes, as far as can be ascertained the "normal" MSK-008 has always been a ground only mobile suit - after all, Karaba, i.e. the group for whch it was developed, operates only on Earth. Nevertheless, some modified space variants have appeared here and there, starting from the one depicted in the Kazum...

Re: The Official Gundam The Origin Mecha Thread Mk I

Anyone here know the purpose of the bars on the shoulders of the Gundam Ground Type/Local Type?
As seen for instance in the original Blue Destiny manga those bars are very useful for the airborne transport inside Medea and / or Gunperry.

Re: The Official Gundam The Origin Mecha Thread Mk I

As far as I can say, yes, the spacecraft you're refering to are the same model.

On a slightly unrelated note, my previous statement on a possible connection of that "new" Salamis variant with a ship from Ixtab turned out to be wrong (a memory fault!)...

Re: The Official Gundam The Origin Mecha Thread Mk I

Yep, it's clearly a variant of the Salamis, but to my knowledge it's still unnamed. Its color scheme reminds me the MSV-R depiction of the Nelson class , but I'm rather sure that the aspect of the bow with that twin "muzzle thing" is taken from a ship seen at the beginning of the manga Mobile Suit G...

Re: Miscellaneous Gundam contributions

I'm not sure if I hit the motherlode or not, but I found most of these images from a blog that talked about a old board/book game called GUNDAMU GAMES (or GUNDAM GAMES to be exact I think). It features a obscure image I saw called the Jagd Zaku (which is some weird variant of a Zaku Tank) [...] Hop...

Re: [Ship Mystery] - Biscay-class Transport

Interesting suggestion, but if this is the site you're referring to, I'm afraid it mixes info actually published on books (or other reference material, also quite obscure... see for instance teh Garonne ship, directly taken from the Z Gundam gamebooks) with fan-made speculations, and as far as I can...

Re: The Official Gundam The Origin Mecha Thread Mk I

I think the combination of that crest + the black coloring is a sort of trademark for Kycilia's corps, since the Zaku IIs Erisie was initially recalling are actually seen in volume 23 of the manga, inside A Baoa Qu fortress during the "civil war" scenes between Kycilia loyalists and the pro-Artesia ...

Re: Neo Zeon MS use by EFSF? (Also, Hyaku Shiki question)

Interesting question. The first examples that come int my mind right now are the AMX-101 and AMX-10K deployed by the Raven Squad in the recent manga Mobile Suit Gundam U.C.0094: Across the Sky . These units - painted in the distinctive black coloring of the team - are used in a series of mock fights...

Re: TMS-007X Z Gustav

As said, the story is alternative compared to the originary one, so that many things are more or less completely changed. Just to name a few: - Kamille is enlisted in the AEUG from the very beginning; - Quattro is sided with the Titans, and pilots an RX-100 Hyaku Shiki (i.e. substantially identical ...

the existence of the AMX-008M and MAN-08S-M would derive not he question of whether or not there's a dedicated ship for deploying these marine units, in which case I would like to assume that this blue Sand Angler class ship is the prime candidate for such role.

The idea seem nice. Of course, nothing completely new: after all, things like the M-MSV and MSV-R lines, as well as Kazuhisa Kondo's Anaheim Record manga (partly also Vanishing Machine ) share similar premises. The key image seem to suggest that they will chiefly focus on previously unpublished vari...

In my opinion - besides actual cameos as the museum relics or the wrecked MSM-07 - the most obvious descendant / reference to old Zeon MSs throughout the series is the Z'Goggy.

Re: Random Gundam Tech Tidbits

As far as I can read (and understand!), the caption of the Todesritter's hyper beam saber says more or less that these kind of large beam sabers - provided of increased power output - were produced within the project Z, and are used for instance by units as the Mk-V.
