Re: Knight's & Magic

I've read the novel version that the anime is pretty much up to so far, a lot of details get glossed over, even the technical ones that the show likes to go into. Some of the politics which is very bare bone is explored more in the novel and the battles are also more detailed. Dietrich was actually ...

Re: OYW ms development

Hmm, I've been looking over various OYW GM designs, and noticed only the Sniper Custom and Sniper II were the only GMs that had thrusters in the back of the legs in the OYW, that became the standard during and since the Gryps Conflict for mobile suits in general. Although both of them having that fe...

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

Yeah, such a heavy gun and large gun would be useless in a dogfight, being so unwieldy and hard to aim in fast combat.

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

Oh yeah, I know the VF-25s were heavier caliber and a lot stronger overall as gunpods, I guess I should've added before 5th Gen that there weren't any heavy machine gun style caliber gunpods as optional weapons, closest thing to that I can think of is the beam adapter to the VF-17 Nightmare although...

Re: OYW ms development

Good point about Titans authority, I forgot that they mentioned early on in Zeta Gundam that the Federation gave full authority to the Titans, although that only lasted until Dakar where they were mostly ousted by the Federation.

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

What are the advantages of the VF-25 over the VF-19 and VF-22? Advances in tech, avionics, better engines, fold quartz, Ex-Gear, and stronger PACK systems put the VF-25 and the rest of its VF-24 family tree far above the VF-19 and VF-22. VF-25 is a 5th generation fighter compared to the 4th gen VF-...

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

IIRC, the bayonet showed up in Macross Plus only, I don't think any VF-11 used it in Macross 7, I could be wrong. VF-11 also had the optional Armored pack similar to the VF-1 and VF-0 which heavily increased its firepower at the cost of mobility. I also noticed that we have yet to see the heavy proj...

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

I'm guessing that the VF-25s used by the NUNS Special Forces Havamel in Macross 30 were the true performance ones as they were made by the Federal arm of the NUNS forces rather than the watered down ones that were imported by Immigration Fleets/Local planet forces/PMCs.

Re: OYW ms development

Ah, thank you for the info, so the Galbady B was a Luna II made unit, my bad. Because of the other units being made at Pezun I thought it also would've been part of it. Kind of weird that a Anaheim made Hizack would have a recon model made at Luna II... But that model number system doesn't fully mak...

Re: Knight's & Magic

Sadly this is the norm in majority of 1 cour anime shows that are adaptations of novels/light novels. Rarely do these go further than 1 cour. Although if this show/novel is popular enough a 2nd season could happen.

Re: OYW ms development

It might, although that size might be a factor to house the entirety of the Federation's Space Fleet too in the OYW, it is its HQ after all. Jaburo didn't seem to have as many ships compared to Luna II, although we do see ships launching to Space from Jaburo like in MS Igloo. I'm not sure if the Gal...

Re: Knight's & Magic

If it is, its not going to be a actual ending to the season, cause there isn't a resolution after that battle in the novel, unless the anime condenses it to just that battle with the dragon followed by driving out the enemy from the kingdom. Given how this ep bypasses a lot of the ground battle with...

Re: Why do the bad guys usually have more different models than the good guys?

Apparently outside the RX-78-2's learning computer, computer's aren't much of a factor in U.C. A.I comes to play for the S Gundam and Amakusa along with the 2 F-90 units on Mars. F-91 does take computers to another step but it is pretty much a reverse Psychommu system where input is brought TO the p...

Re: OYW ms development

The California Base I find to be dubious because it was retaken on December 15, I find it HIGHLY unlikely to make 500 GMs 2 weeks before the final battle at ABQ. This is Gundam Wiki so take a grain of salt with that. Hmm... I'm actually curious how much Luna II has to do with MS development after th...

Re: OYW ms development

Earth Federation also lost a lot of territory in the early parts of the OYW. It wasn't until Odessa they started a wide offensive and that was in November and from what I've read, about 30 MS were used in Odessa by the Federation, a good number of them were the pre-production GM ground types. From w...

Re: OYW ms development

Design is one thing, production is a different factor. Federation production lines are still a factor for mass production especially when mass producing mobile suits for the 1st time and even then it was initiated more than halfway in the OYW with the GMs. Those very high rollout numbers for the GM ...

Re: OYW ms development

I want to chime in that the Zanny (modified/captured Zaku 1, I think) also helped with mobile suit development. Unfortunately given the various forms of media with Gundam, there is conflicting/retconed information about deployment and development of certain units, especially in the OYW. Also, lets n...
