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

Based on my understanding, it seems the AV System Type E takes over Gaelio's limbs and pilots the MS for him. When Gaelio first use the system in ep45, he tells Ein to use his body as he wishes.

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

The yellow metal thing and Julian swords yellow tip(and wire) being the same is from Ebikawa's tweet. The Bael ones mentioned in the HG manual might as well be implicitly the same grade as it is also yellow, and this MS frame rare alloy could refer to both the gray and yellow grades. We will just l...

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

Let's discuss where this rare alloy mentioned in the manual is found. Only a number of weapons have mentioned the rare alloy: Barbatos mace, Kimaris disks(some mixture), Grimgerde Swords, Hasmal wire blade, Barbatos new katana, Julian Swords, Kimaris Vidar katana, Bael Swords, rare alloy shells, KE...

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

AmuroNT1 has the main points down, but here's the scans for those interested: 1 , 2 For the 'Gundam Frame Section', I feel that the word 'modified' is more suitable than 'repair' to relay the meaning of the Japanese text. Also, nice to know more about McGillis' goal. It's kind of odd that the manual...

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

I relook at the Japanese text in the manual, and it is ambiguous on whether Kimaris Vidar's appearance is the original Kimaris look during the Calamity War. It simply says that Kimaris Vidar's appearance was confirmed to be used in the Calamity War 300 years ago.

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

The long time it takes for Gundam Vidar to be combat ready could be in part due to the Alaya-Vijnana Type E. Rustal did note in episode 34 about 'that system' that was giving Vidar problems.

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

It appears that Bael having a soul may indeed be true hence why others were rejected. This adds yet another Evangelion-like element to piloting the IBO Gundams. With what Mcgillis said to Mika about how people in Gjallarhorn had forgotten that MS need the AV system to work, i can't help but wonder ...

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

Also... about the Bael still having its cockpit... wouldn't the Flauros still have its original cockpit as it was found in the mines? Or was it damaged that it had to be replaced? It is possible that the internal of the Flauros' cockpit was missing when it was discovered similar to the Gundam Barba...

Re: Mobile Suit Cockpit hatches

00's GNZ-series have their cockpits mounted to external pods on the back, well above the center of gravity. See MythSearcher's comments on cockpits in the head for why this is probably a bad idea in terms of the G-Forces, though it makes quick ejection quite convenient. Although the cockpit is atta...

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

I personally believe, that Mcgillis had and AV all along. The backplane of it looked different then what the kids from Tekkadan use. So i could imagine, that through some kind of better treatment, it would not stick out of your body, as it does with all of the boys from tekkadan. As far as we have ...

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

That's not totally true, remember that the characteristic of the Rodi frame is its versatility and lack of weakness, and not the ability to carry heavy armor. It is just that the Rodi Frame MS we have seen in the series all tend to have heavy armor.

Hmm... Wasn't the Grimgardes just one of the Valkyria Units? Yes. So, overall, only a small number of Valkyrja Frame using machines were produced, with an even smaller number of those machines being Grimgerde. Oh yeah, as for the number of Valkyrja Frame using machines, according to this picture po...
