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! Wow that ...

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. If...

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...

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

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 ...

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

In previous message boards, I've been told that the Operation Meteor and Celestial Being Gundams were not prototype or custom models. Rather, they were just specialized mobile suits that spawned from two different prototypes, including Wing Zero and 0 Gundam, respectively. Is this true? 0 Gundam as...

The lack of direct connection between Macross shows is one of the things that I never really liked about it, even if it has its upsides.
