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...

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

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...

A missions to steal a captured Zaku?

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

Personally I find the Musai Late Production Type one of the best ship designs in the UC: -It addressed the problem of AA defense. -It increased firepower by adding turrests that also covered some of the blind spots of the original model. -It added frontal MS catapults while increasing the hangar cap...

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...

When Axis is on collision course with the Gate Of Zedan, the AEUG is surprised to see many lights (ships) leaving...

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...

MA model designations have each their own numbering: MA: MA-04X MA-05 MA-06 MA-08 MA-09 MAM-07 MAN-00X-2 MAN-03 MAN-05 MAN-08 MAX-03 The Braw Bro and Adzam share the same number, and so does the Bigro & Gromlin as well as the Big Zam and Elmeth. On second though, it would seem that it's just the MAN...

Re: Which series has "cornerstone" mecha designs?

On the table is the plan for one which consists of insect-like creatures controlled by hive minds. I've got Warhamemr 40k, Aliens, and Starship Trooper for my inspiration, but is there any anime which shows mecha fighting against biological alien life forms (other than Muv-Luv)?

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...

Re: The Official Gundam Twilight AXIS Anime Thread Mk I

I doubt that however Full Frontal was created, it involved retrieving data from the Sazabi wreckage: leaving aside that it would have been difficult to do so with the EF's surveillance, I would presume that any relevant data would have likely been located on the Sazabi's cockpit, which was ejected w...

Re: RCX-76 Guncannon: Why did it suck so bad?

the only real compedeter for the GM cannon line was the RX-77D Guncannon MP- type a scaled down version of the RX-77-2 but lacked Parts compatibility. I wouldn't call the RX-77D a scaled down version of the Guncannon, but rather a naturally more modern approach, with higher emphasis on mobility and...

Wait? So is there any part commonality between the Galbady Alpha and the Gyan? And secondly, is Pezun not really a manufacturer but instead a research lab?

The background of the AMX-011S unit that appears actually might change our previous assumptions on the development of this particular model. But before addressing that issue I wanted to quickly point out a mechanical error in the series: the AMX-011S seems to have the stock S-type head, which ironic...
