Ace Pilot Log

Bandai has launched a new site that seems to intend to promote gunplas of notable ace pilots: http://p-bandai.jp/hobby/special-1000007545/ The promotional image shows Johhny Ridden's MS-06S, the MS-06R-2 units of Robert Gilliam and Gabby Hazard, and the new model kit of Masaya Nakagawa's MS-06R-1A, ...

Re: Gundam Vs. Series Discussion Topic

I'm on the other end of spectrum: I would prefer joke units such as Doan's Zaku to be replaced by more interesting units, such as: -Zaku Desert Type/Desert Zaku: besides having a more unique appearance, this units had the ability to hide in the desert sand and had a large arsenals fixed weapons (gre...

Re: Where will one-off designs end-up?

i believe with the 3 mk II gundams once the AEUG got them unit 3 stayed with the Argama as a combat unit repainted in more normal Gundam colors as propaganda unit. the other two went to AE one being used for testing and reverse engineering and one was used for parts until AE could build comparable ...

Re: Gundam Vs. Series Discussion Topic

The unit in question is a MS-14BR, not a regular MS-14B. That being said, in the image the unit seems to be purple instead of Vincent's blue color scheme. Nothing personal, but that's a distinction without difference. If they're going to include ANY form of High Mobility Gelgoog, I'd rather they in...

I could also complain about the fact that if they were going to include the High Mobility Gelgoog, it'd make far more sense to use Johnny Ridden.

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

It depends on what kind of Zaku Cannon we are talking about: Perhaps the first issue to tackle is that regular Zakus can actually just equip a weapon that could be held comparable to the Guncannon's weapons: a Zaku bazooka, Magellan attack or even an anti-ship rifle would give a standard Zaku simila...

Re: Front Vents on Mobile Suits

Regarding Zeon MS, IIRC there are some mentions of Zeon ships requiring facilities for retrieval and cooling of MS after landing. The MS Igloo redesigns of the Musai and Chivvay both include what seem to be these retrieval hatches: in front of the bridge in case of the former and right behind the br...

Re: Where will one-off designs end-up?

Re: Gundam Vs. Series Discussion Topic

Given how Full Boost was, there is going to be a LOT of DLC for this game... Most likely a lot of them are main series units from Full Boost that aren't in the initial line-up... I'm not very convinced by the confirmed MS so far, and fear that if some of my favorite MS by end up as DLC only, if at ...

Facilities Occupied By Zeon During The OYW

With Gundam Thunderbolt continuing unto its second season, I went to check again some old sources said about the Zeon attacks on the other Sides early during the OYW. One particular point of interest for me was the supposed capture of factories on other space colonies, some of which were even used t...

Just dropping by quickly to comment further on the anti-beam coating: -There do was some early anti-beam coating during the OYW, which was used by Zeon on the Gelgoog's Zulu shield. Unfortunately it wasn't very effective and couldn't block a direct hit from the front, but it was somewhat effective a...

Re: Gaza A, Gaza M, Zaku III Recon Type & More From Advance Of Zeta Reboot

Contrary to what the profiles of the Doven Wolf and Zaku III claim, there are several indications that the base AMX-011 was deployed much earlier than the Doven Wolf, supposedly being developed at the same time as the Dreissen, both being based in older Zeon models in order to speed up their develop...

After being teased a few volumes ago with its torso, we are finally introduced to the Gaza A in Advance of Z Reboot: http://hobby.dengeki.com/aoz/illust/reboot12/ Also, the Gaza C gets a marine variant, the AMX-003M Gaza M, which seems to have a lot in common with AMX-008M from previous volumes.

Re: Neo Zeon MS use by EFSF? (Also, Hyaku Shiki question)

Using Zaku frames (and later Hizack frames) for reducing costs and streaming mass production does sound like a sound reason. For what matters, we don't really see the EF using much non-Zaku units (including the Gouf series) such as the Dom and Gelgoog series, aside from captured units or designs lik...

Re: Mysterious Alloy - Universal Duralumin and Zeonium

That's an interesting theory, and likely the case though most likely for a fictional equivalent. I guess I was hoping that there do was a more specific mention of the element/resource in question. For instance, a key resource for manufacturing luna titanium alloy/gundarium or for the research that w...

Re: Zaku The Origin

Out of curiosity, how many YMS-03 units are the Y-02 team using for their training? Perhaps the issue could be the high cost of the Bugu, which makes producing multiple units for combat training undesirable/unfeasible and thus the YMS-03 provides a more economical alternative. Perhaps another way to...

Let's not forget that in the original TV series, the earliest glimpse we get of the Dolos is at Granada, from where it takes off towards A Baoa Qu.

Re: OYW MS questions

The mono-eye itself could just be replaced with a better suited one and use the same camera rail. After all, in MS Igloo we saw how even things like the OP-02C also use mono-eyes, so there should be plenty of specialized types that also use rails. That being said, the MSM-07 Z'gok series in particul...
