Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Mecha Thread Mk III

Considering that Tekkadan had a few AV System cockpits in their overall armament, wouldn't surprise me if they just took one from a grunt unit and had Teiwaz put it in Flauros. Mobile worker AV Systems though, should be compatable with Gundam Frames, as we saw with Barbatos in the second episode. Ba...

Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Mecha Thread Mk III

In that case, it's the first possibility then. That they didn't have any other on hand aside from those and never found any working ones from Dawn Horizon. Could just be that Tekkadan were lucky with Brewers' haul. That the AV System has been described as technically illegal might also mean supply i...

Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Mecha Thread Mk III

It could also be possible that they just didn't salvage any working ones from those units that had AV. As we know E08's recent post, you can scrap the entire AV System on the mobile suit side just by destroying the cockpit. Add in that most of the Dawn Horizon didn't have corp likely didn't have the...

Geirail Frame M.Works: A frame independently developed by Gjallarhorn based on the Valkyria Frame’s data. Although an older generation frame, its Ahab reactor output is stable and movement is fine. Graze Frame was developed as an improvement of the Geirail Frame. There are common points between Gei...

Re: TV Tropes lists ZoE's Jehuty as a super prototype, even though it isn't

The funny part is that if the student does bad job, the teacher will tell them to look up Wikipedia XD . But of course, the proper way is to look up what it's citing. That's basically what I do aside from Googling, unless I'm required to cite a peer reviewed paper or something. In which case, I'll ...

Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Mecha Thread Mk III

Without going back and rereading the sentence (about to board a plane) , I think it means a mobile suit line that came had its roots in the Calamity War and had continuous developement since, as opposed to one that was revived recently. And/or it could just be that the descriptions stops at the star...

Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Mecha Thread Mk III

Speaking of the Graze, Page 97 of Mechanics and World 2 says that unlike the Calamity War machines that have are still being used after hundred of years, the Gjallahorn machines are the only new line of mobile suits that still continues. Around 4-5 machines have been developed since the end of the w...

Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Mecha Thread Mk III

The twin Ahab Reactors’ excessive output is not for normal usage, rather it is for a burst of power during the few opportunities available to land a clean hit on the MA. To maximize these opportunities to deal a lethal blow to the MA, the amount of energy instantaneously transferred to the weapon m...

Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Mecha Thread Mk III

What is interesting is the Kimaris Vidar's sword - HG manual described it in similar terms as the Bael Swords that is rare metal (希少金属) used in MS frame, the M.Work 2 used '高硬度レアアロイ', and M&W 2 combine both - '希少金属高硬度レアアロイ' and noted that this material is used in MS frame, etc. Go figure!

Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Mecha Thread Mk III

Well, the rare metal term ‘希少金属’ is also used in the HG manual’s Bael Sword profile when describing its material. It is possible that the HG manual writers got their information wrong. Another possibility is that if the M&W2 book did not explicitly say that the rare metal is used only for weapons, ...

Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Mecha Thread Mk III

Hmmm something interesting/weird on Pg 95 of IBO Mechanics and World 2. There's a section called Weapons Frame Material which has two subsections, each describing a different materials. The first one is High Hardness Rare Alloy . The rare alloy part spelled in katakana as レアアロイ (reaaroi). Here it's ...

Re: What were the Gundams from Wing, 00, and IBO?

That's actually a pretty good detailed elaboration on the subject. Looks very interesting. Customization refers to replacement of stock parts with non-standard or non-production hardware that either improves the unit's performance or adds new capabilities that it was not originally designed with.

Re: What were the Gundams from Wing, 00, and IBO?

Haven't read the actual book, but is it possible to translate the term to "tuned" instead "customised"? Though considering the resources and military strength they controlled when manufacturing the Gundams, 72 frames' customization wouldn't be too out of hand and resources consuming.(Even 72 custom...

Re: What were the Gundams from Wing, 00, and IBO?

If I remember correctly, so far, none of the Gundam Frames used in the Calamity War are said to be customized to suit their pilots. The differences in look seems to be based on functions or purposes. There is a line in Page 94 of IBO Mechanics and World 2 under the "Specialty of the Gundam Frame" s...

Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Mecha Thread Mk III

I guess it would depend on the equipment on the Gundams, as I think all of them had specialized equipment unlike the mass produced Hexa and Rodi frames, some even being capable of using the Dainslefs as the case with the Flauros. Plus a group of Gundams working together, especially with the AV syst...

Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Mecha Thread Mk III

Given how reliable and powerful the Gundams are, it makes sense they were at the front lines all the time against the MAs. Especially since all earlier attempts with mobile suits proved futile. And that most of those Gundams were lost too during the Calamity War. Gundams being on the front lines ma...

Thanks a lot, looks like good stuff. I'm kinda hoping they would elaborate more on how the beam works. What are the ammo restrictions on them, etc. Also surprised at that 80% Gundam Frames number, considering how little of them they are. The other MS must have been so hammered before they were made ...

Re: GN Drive Tau particle colors?

Minor correction here, the Cherudim handguns' anti beam coating is implied to be on the white part below the gun barrel, not the light blue parts, and is for parrying beam sabers. So unlike what some fans believed, the hatchet-like form of the handguns is for defensive purpose only. My bad, I actua...

Re: GN Drive Tau particle colors?

If it's the case (and I don't recall either way) then it probably has to do with the later GN[T] Drives being the result of several years additional development. It is the extra development like you said since it stated that their performance has improved in general the Season 2 period. The Corner ...
