I swore that when I read Steel 7 that they gave it newer parts and upgraded it to perform at the level in which the prototype did. Here's a quote about the translated description of Harrison Martins Limited Production F91 from an older thread.Crosswire40 wrote:There was no indication that the limited production models of the F-91 were in anyway inferior to the original. They seemed to have the same performance as the original did when they showed up in Crossbone Gundam.ChaoticSheep1 wrote: Fair enough. I was also under the impression that the mass production units were alot weaker than the original unit so I suppose that along the course of the campaign perhaps Anahiem or SNRI could send some parts that bring them up to full power.
The unit lacks a Bio-Computer still and due to the time constraint I bet they couldnt fully refit the machine as much as they wanted to.Balofo wrote:
F91 (Decisive Jupiter Battle Version)
One of the F91 units created in limited mass production after the war against Cosmo Babylonia. (Later referred to as the CV). This was Lt. Harison’s second unit and it's been colored blue, his signature color. (The first unit was destroyed in the battle against Kinkedo). When it was decided to be deployed it in the decisive battle, some functions which had been removed during the mass production phase, which at the time seemed unnecessary, were restored. Therefore, its performance came close to that of the original prototype, where cost wasn’t an issue.
While I want Newtypes in the stories, Psycommu systems are a WHOLE other story. Zanscare has them since they seem to have actually pursued research into Newtypes or at the very least gotten a hold of data relating to them. Meanwhile the Federation gives Jack and S*hit about Newtypes like they always have, so they just flat out haven't bothered with it.ChaoticSheep1 wrote: Also another thing bugging me. For NT pilots I assume the process for getting a psycommu installed would be to ask and then the system would be installed according to if one is available plot wise to them (assuming things like they arent behind enemy lines et)?
I don't even remember the Federation or AE having access to psycommu systems small enough for miniaturized suits so I guess we'll just go along and say that they do?
Anaheim has butt loads of data regarding old mobile suits. I bet they could make a Psycommu system, but there's no demand for them and neither the Federation or the League have shown any interest in Newtypes what so ever.[/quote]
Fair enough. However the League does seem to operate in isolated cells, since to even organise a major attack they had to find the leader of their entire movement. Doesn't mean another cell with powerful connections wouldn't find interest there. But I have to admit that doesn't seem very likely so I will have to settle with what I have. Guess when the League goes up against Cyber NT's and Regular NT's they are going to have to rely even more heavily on cleverness and tactics to stand up.
