Re: Can Space Colonisation discourage war?

Probably the most telling detail of the whole logistical problem with long-range spaceflight in UC is that when the Principality of Zeon remnants who'd fled the Earth sphere wanted to start a fight they straight-up flew all of Axis into the Earth sphere instead of trying to shuttle back and forth t...

Re: Can Space Colonisation discourage war?

At least in UC, the EFSF is so discouraged by the logistics and didn't really bother to start a real war with Axis, but just sent in a scout fleet in that many years even though they knew Zeon had a base over there. They also didn't do much to the Mars faction. However, the EF is very passive in all...

Re: In U.C, how close can a space ship goes before it is detected?

Sure, Minovsky particles makes long range detection unreliable at best, but what about visual detection? I did read that if the USS Enterprise were to fly over Mars, the Hubbles could even discern the marking on the hull. No. We have the technology to pick up infrared(heat) signals from Mars, but n...

Re: Knight's & Magic

Wow, this episode kind of made me hate Ernie. I mean, his obsession with robots was already pretty bad, but this week he acted like he cares more about machines than human beings. Also, that part where Eyepatch Badguy was expositing about Engineer Badguy may have been the clumsiest infodump I've ev...

Re: Knight's & Magic

And, the result is we have one more episode left, Heaven & Earth.

Haven't actually watch the episode yet, will do that tomorrow when I have the time to do so.

Microsats release the tether just for experiments, electrodynamic test or something, not that brutal comparing to combat maneuvers.

Ah, thank you for the info, so the Galbady B was a Luna II made unit, my bad. Because of the other units being made at Pezun I thought it also would've been part of it. Kind of weird that a Anaheim made Hizack would have a recon model made at Luna II... But that model number system doesn't fully ma...

Source? We've gone through this canon crap so many times, and ultimately we still hold on single statement - if it's animate works then it's official. That statement is not even from an official source. <.< "even if that meant it wasn't part of the Gundam canon," Direct Quote from the Director. Her...

Re: How fast can the Newtype brainwave be?

Don't be misled by fiction, Space is huge, and there is hardly "very dense" space. Debris field spread out pretty fast, and larger lumps actually will clear out the smaller ones. Sadly we're talking about fiction here, don't be misled by reality. We can see a very dense debris zone in Thunderbolt, ...

Re: Knight's & Magic

If it is, its not going to be a actual ending to the season, cause there isn't a resolution after that battle in the novel, unless the anime condenses it to just that battle with the dragon followed by driving out the enemy from the kingdom. Given how this ep bypasses a lot of the ground battle wit...

Re: How fast can the Newtype brainwave be?

Would the wire hinder the action of MS/MA in some very "dense" space, like debris field? Furthermore, while wired bits can get the power, signal and even propellant from the wire, they can't distract enemies in the way like wireless funnels. Wired bits can ambush enemies from the cover of asteroids...

Alright, they did cut out the reverse invasion part, which kinda makes sense (It is just to defend your own country but hardly so if you invade another, even if that country did invade you before.) Therefore, the development of weapons has to be hasten. The draconic ship make its appearance within t...

Re: How fast can the Newtype brainwave be?

Not that I have the book handy to verify, but I though that in the novels Amuro could "see" the link between the Elmeth and its bits but had a much harder time with the wired Braw Bro because he could not sense its remote weapons. Then again, I do not know if this is backed up by any other material...

Re: Effect of beam weapon on electrical system

Eh, I dunno... it'd really have to be an extraordinarily precise hit to the onboard computers. Otherwise, there ought to be circuit breakers in place to prevent overvoltage and overcurrent conditions. A fun thing is, in 08th MS Team, the Gouf B-3 somehow did managed to damage the Gundam Ground type...

How expensive a learning computer can be? I mean, if you look at this day and age, even undergraduates are building AI capable of deep learning.

How is the innards of a MS is cooled anyway (especially the fusion reactor)? There are heat sinks (as seen in the F91), but what about liquid or gas cooling systems?
