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

Do you remember which spelling/word was used in the HG Reginlaze Julia manual? I recall that one is supposed to be the same type as the one used in Grimgerde's swords, or implied to be. And do you remember whether the Barbatos Lupur Rex's claws uses the same spelling as that one too? I haven't gott...

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

The only change to Barbatos cockpit I can remember is that Lupus Rex cockpit hatch is front opening instead of its predecessors' top opening due to Mikazuki's worsens disabilities.

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, o...

Ok, here’s the second part, it is about Gundam Frame and Valkyria Frame. I have an earlier post on the Mechanical Works’ Gundam Frame info here , so I wouldn’t be repeating those.

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

According to the HG kit for the Grimgarde, the Valkyria Frames were general purpose units that were easy to use and as ease of maintenance that evolved over the years to its descendants Geirail and Graze. While it is true that Gerail and Graze are descendants of the Valkyria Frame, its characterist...

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

I'm kinda hoping they would elaborate more on how the beam works. What are the ammo restrictions on them, etc. From what I have seen, I don't think any of the books talk about the beam weaponry in details. Then again, I skip most of the interview sections... Also surprised at that 80% Gundam Frames...

Re: GN Drive Tau particle colors?

That adds it to the various anti beam coating already in the series including the OverFlags' black coating and Cherudim handguns' light blue coating (which seems to act more like a GN Field-layered solid blade in general, but is described in the manuals as using anti beam coating) Minor correction ...

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.

Re: The need for prototypes to surpass the mass-production models

The EFGF couldn't wait for the mass production, and decided to use the left over/sub-par/over-produced RX-78 parts to build some MS to meet their needs. They probably built the RGM-79[G] GM Ground type first, and only did the RX-79[G] Gundam Ground Type when the front line feedback asked for better...

Re: Does the destiny silhouette use Voiture Lumiere System?

Heck, during the original SEED Destiny airing (NOT Destiny Remastered), Shinn had to retreat from a battle due to running low on power after using the VL system for an extended period of time. That's just a fan theory, AFAIK, there is no official word on what caused the low power situation, and may...

AMX-107 Bawoo I remember reading where was built using stolen ZZ Gundam project data brought over by defecting AE techs to Axis.
