Looks like Iok's Reginlaze was completely wrecked during the battle with the Hashmel... he is moving on to a regular Graze in the same colors as his Reginlaze.

May he rest in pieces. :twisted:

It would be horribly amusing for him to have escaped a richly deserved death at the Hashmal's hands only to get killed by its tail blade wielded by Barbatos. Pretty please?

Stabbed by the tail blade, stepped on by Barbatos, or swing at by mace while outside of cockpit like one of Carta's men from season 1... any of these painful deaths is fitting for Iok.

But yeah... aside from the Reginglaze and other variations of the Graze, compared to other Gundam shows, Gjarrhorn doesn't have that many mobile suit types, even though all of them are about the same type, with the Gereil, Graze coming from the Grimgarde line. The Reginlaze is a upgraded Graze so it counts too.

So I happened to be reading Mechanics and World, and went and translated some of the text in Page 85 about communications that caught my eye. Nothing truly groundbreaking but some small itty bitty stuff that would satisfy those who like the small details like myself.

====
LCS
So the book confirms that LCS stands for Laser Communication System. It's basically a short distance communication system and it works by using a light wavelength that is close to visible light, because visible light can't be easily disrupted by Ahab Waves. However due to its nature, if something gets in between us and the communication target, the line will disappear. It can be said to be akin to a yarn phone, and by using Ariadne, long range communication is possible.

Ariadne
Generic terms used for systems that allow interplanetary navigation or the name of the route itself (something like that). Each "cocoon" is equipped with an Ahab Reactor and they're akin to autonomous space floating lighthouses. They're place at around 1 million km intervals and an interlocking devices uses them as signposts. Because the cocoon is always generating a specific wavelength of the Ahab Wave, a ship traveling would always be able to sense the reaction and knows the specific location of the cocoon.

At the same time, each cocoon will also be able to sense the positioning of the neighboring cocoon from their Ahab Waves, and know their own coordinates. If there is deviation for some reason, it would be able to adjust its positioning using its Ahab Thrusters. In addition, by utilizing the mechanism that the cocoons use the relay their position, it can also be used as relay points for communications. Via cocoons, by using continuos/many short distance communications, long distance communications is possible. For communications between Earth and Mars, it requires around 15-20 minutes to do so (to setup I guess?). Ariadne is like a band arranged like an interplanetary river in the sky (milky way?, I'm not sure the Japanese term, kanji heredoesn't match my dictionary's kanjis for Milky Way), the whole band orbits the revolution orbit while expanding and contracting according to the position of the planet.

It was originally made with technology prior to the Calamity War, but the routes have decreased due to the battles of that event. After the war, it has been placed under the jurisdiction of Gjallahorn. It is currently being used by undergoing continuos repairs/maintanence. The route is available by paying a predetermined toll fee. By using the outer circumference route of Ariadne that was abandoned after the war, where Gjallahorn' survelence is limited, pirates and illegal merchant ships are able to use cocoons for navigation.

Still doesn't elaborate how they can communicate at faster than light speed, but still cool details IMO.
