Re: The date when the Zsaa, the Dreissen, the Capule, and the Galluss first started development?

The extending arms existed ever since the original de it of the Gogg and Acguy: the former could retract its arms for its diving/swimming mode, best depicted in Robot Damashii’s new A.N.I.M.E. figure. In the case of the later, remember those scenes where Acguys extended their arms for attaching them...

Re: The date when the Zsaa, the Dreissen, the Capule, and the Galluss first started development?

I recall that Mark once pointed out that the Bawoo was the only 1st Neo Zeon MS that seemed to follow the EF's design doctrine, and was equipped with as standard beam rifle and handheld shield. It's worth pointing out that the only other MS to use that shield is none other than the AMX-018 Todesritt...

First things first: AOZ Reboot finally provides and official design for the obscure AMX-001 Gaza A: http://hobby.dengeki.com/aoz/illust/reboot12/ The AMX-003 Gaza C had be redesigned, though the AMX-003M Gaza M do seems to have kept more common traits with it.

Re: The YMS-09 and MS-09D Doms and variants

Another interesting comparison is regarding generator outputs: 1,269 kW: YMS-09 ? YMS-09D ? MS-09K-1 ? MS-09K-2 MS-09B 1,199 kW: MS-09R MS-09F 1,219 kW: YMS-09R2 MS-09R2 1,440 kW: MS-09G MS-09RS ? From the MS-09K-2 we can probably assume that the YMS-09, YMS-09D and MS-09K-1 all use the same generat...

Re: OYW ms development

The beam weapon used by the RGM-79(G) sniper that had a continuous beam, other than the barrels destruction its power was on the rather high side I can't think of another case of a weapon similar ever being fielded. Just wanted to point out that such weapon seems to require an external generator, w...

Re: The YMS-09 and MS-09D Doms and variants

Personally I would have preferred if the MS-06JK Zaku Half Cannon had been introduced instead as the infamous MS-06J-12, the anti-air MS that served as the base for the MS-06K. As already pointed out, the MS-06K has traits from other advanced MS models such as the YMS-09 and MS-14C, which make it mo...

From one of Mark's threads: According to the MSV series, the second of the original prototypes was eventually converted to the YMS-09D Dom Tropical Test Type, and this machine was then tested by the Caracal Corps. As per the second MSV book, "The Caracal Corps was assigned four D type Doms, includin...

Re: OYW ms development

The RGM-79 is stated to be a rushed design, and is even considered an accident-prone machine like the EMS-10 Zudah. While this meant that the standard GM is a flawed design, it did allowed the EF to produce them in large quantities in a short amount of time. Still, the EF had plans for a proper mass...

Do you mean to recapture a Zaku that had been previously captured by EF forces, or something like that?

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

The GMs never had learning computers, each of those are way too expensive and EFF didn't install those unless they have a core fighter to protect them. When they ditched the core fighter in the GM, they removed the learning computer. According to Gundam Century, the most expensive systems of the GM...

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

I've been meaning to participate in this thread, but have been somewhat busy lately and have not been able to dig through some old sources. For the time being I want to throw a few ideas. My overall impression is that Zeon MS are overall better than EF MS, but the EF's logistical muscle allows their...

Re: Best designed warship in UC

According to an interview with the author of Gundam Thunderbolt, it would seem that it is not canon (or more rather its part of its own canon, much like The Origin): "**CS**: Aside from director Tomino 1, you don’t hear many people involved with Gundam talking about “destroying Gundam.” **YO**: I’m ...

Re: Gundam Vs. Series Discussion Topic

I still feel like this game is worth a launch purchase unless there's some outside factor hampering your spending money. Sure, some of the omissions are annoying, but the beauty of a game with almost 100 characters to choose from is that there's bound to be something that tickles your fancy. You ca...

Re: The Official Gundam Twilight AXIS Mecha Thread Mk I

The more I look at the RX-160G, the more I'm inclined to think it is a sort of middle step between the original RX-160 and the RX-160S: it has the feet and hands of the original, but it adds the rear leg thrusters of the custom model. The added propellant tank + thrusters on the back of the Isolde a...

Re: The Official Gundam Thunderbolt Mecha Thread Mk I

Well, looking at the overall design, I'm inclined to say that the shape was inspired by the Zakrello: Remove the claws & missile launchers, close the mouth, replace the eyes with a mono eye, and you end up with something similar. In particular the thrusters hint at this: both the Elmeth and Zakrello...
