The date when the Zsaa, the Dreissen, the Capule, and the Galluss first started development?

Do we have any inkling about when did the Zsaa, the Dreissen, the Capule, and the Gallus started development? Was it before or after Axis departed toward Earth during the Gryps War? I mean, have it ever occured to you guys why did these machines were developed, while before the Axis Zeon had been fo...

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

Say, does the fleets must register to NUNS first before they could develop any new weapons? Because when I think about the question of why the Variable Fighters designations are sequented, if the fleets are given complete freedom then it is possible that there are two or more unrelated VF (or more l...

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

The Kairos was intended to replace the Nightmare Plus entirely in the entire New U.N, right, or just the Macross fleets and the planets if they choose to? If the first is the case, then how expensive can a Kairos be, and how hard to learn using it? Because as I see it, the reason why the Nightmare P...

Re: Can Space Colonisation discourage war?

That depends on how difficult it is to travel to and from those colonies... When the distances involved or technology for fast travel is advanced enough to permit a ship to travel from a colony to a planet or another colony economically, if not casually, then the economic equation is such that it's...

Re: Can Space Colonisation discourage war?

I wish i could be so optimistic but no I doubt that space colonization could discourage war. That said this is very close to political topic which is a no no here so I'd say we just leave the discussion to the EF before the OYW. That being the topic it's hard to tell really. They were most certainl...

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

Say, how important is it for Valkyrie to have hands? I mean, except the rifles and the knives, there does not seem to be many choice when it comes to hand-held VF weapons. So why will they not go a step further an intergrated the guns directly to the forearms? I ask this after reading a lot about Ba...

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. I know that it is not a good comparision, but still, space combat in U.C looks...

Can Space Colonisation discourage war?

In my opinion, Space Colonisation can actually discourage war, or at least interplanetary wars. The reason is that unless you have jump ship and is confident on a quick victory, the cost of transportation, intelligence, and pacification would be too high to justify the profit. And, if you think abou...

Re: Why do the bad guys usually have more different models than the good guys?

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. Not to mention that it is very likely for the pilots to control a MS, they would need an advanced A.I system to handle a lot of the work.

And what if Jimba Ral had succeeded Deikun instead of Degwin as the new leader of Zeon? Would there be an immediate war with the Federation, in addition to...

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

It is a shame, really - a show named Delta should have had its titular Valkyrie a delta-winged one. And also, why did they not just design an entirely new Valkyrie if they need the mobility given by the forward-swept wings so much? I mean, I can understand modification such as a two-seat cockpit, bu...

Re: Effect of beam weapon on electrical system

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? Regarding the matter of heat transfer, then yeah, you guys are probably right. The damage of heat is probably negligible in the case o...

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

With respect to cockpit and upper torso shapes of early VF designs, contours of the upper torso became less flat pretty much right away after the VF-1 Valkyire. That said, that's more a question of the shape of the panels the upper torso is shaped from. The VF-1's cockpit orientation was the standa...

Effect of beam weapon on electrical system

A beam saber can generate several thousands degree Celsius. That much heat can melt down any circuitry and wiring system in split seconds. But we have seen MS which has been stabbed several times and still able to wobbly around. How did they make the MS damage-resistant like that?

More specifically, how long does it take between a Newtype giving an order and the Funnels operates accordingly? I mean, it is said that INCOMs are always slower than Funnels, as the machine takes time to translate the brainwave into electrical signal, and then transfer it by wire to the INCOMs. And...

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

Say, when did the slab-like chest of the VF-1 is replaced by shapes more round and cockpit-like in latter Valkyrie? As I see it, it changed as soon as the VF-X3. And is this because the VF-1 has the surface behind the cockpit split into only two parts instead of three? And what is the legacy of the ...

Re: Another Nod At The MS-14JG & RMS-117(MS-17B) Siblings

Talking about the iasting impact of Zeon MS, do you think that the Pezun Dowadge made any impact on latter models? I try to see if there is anything similar between it and the Dreissen, but could find none.
