Re: Pacific Rim Novels and Comics?

I haven't read the novel but I know it adds a few technical details, for example why Gipsy didn't use the Plasma Caster underwater. I do have the Pacific Rim: Man, Machines & Monsters artbook and I highly recommend it. I've flipped through a few of the Pacific Rim comics, they're okay, but not a...

Re: The Official Gundam: The Witch From Mercury Mecha Thread Mk I

To me the teal Dilanza looks like Ippei Gyoubu's take on a Gustav Karl (with a mini Marasai helmet). I like it, although I think the Pharact is my favorite design so far, several of its pieces remind me of my favorite Armored Core builds.

Re: The Official Gundam: The Witch From Mercury Anime Thread Mk I

I personally suspect the darkness will be toned down in the series at least at the start but I honestly don't mind if it stays this way. Sometimes shows like to start with a strong theme to create a good first impression. Yeah I wouldn't mind that tone consistent throughout as well, but I get the f...

Re: Gerbera and Gerbera Tetra?

I had forgotten about the Hi-Mo Galbady Beta, AoZ really takes a wide breath of units for the Titans Test Team to try out. I always found their GM Sniper III configs to be interesting. Thanks for posting the number scheme, I remember seeing that a while back but haven't seen it in a while and wanted...

Re: The Official Gundam: The Witch From Mercury Mecha Thread Mk I

Thanks for the new info! I'm curious how they're going to thread the needle with Suletta's personally produced MS having blasphemous technology is allowed but we'll see when the show starts. One thing I found interesting from the prologue was the bad-guy unit using a physical sword instead of a beam...

Re: Gerbera and Gerbera Tetra?

I don't recall the Galbady Beta being a Titans machine, the Titans may have commandeered them especially when trying to stop the AEUGs Jaburo operation but it was the EFSF who were first using them after overhauling Zeon's Galbady Alpha.

Re: The Official Gundam: The Witch From Mercury Anime Thread Mk I

Finally saw the prologue. I'm very intrigued to see Gundam go in cyberpunk direction for this AU, using cybernetics to survive in space vice the genetic engineering we saw in SEED; it looks to be the major plot points in the show as well, whereas Naturals and Coordinators had more of a backdrop role...

Re: GW: Wing Gundam BR 3 Shot Maximum

If I understood OP's question correctly, they are asking if Wing's Buster Rifle is capable of firing at a lower output and if so can it fire multiple times on a single e-cap. For example, if the high power setting uses an entire e-cap, then it can only be fired three times on the high power setting;...

Re: The best thing ever been thrown by a mecha?

Plus there's the Buster Shield on Deathscythe, Wing Zero (TV) has the hydraulic tip on its shield. F91 uses its beam shield offensively, Sazabi has beam tomahawks built into its Shield. Amuro uses his Shield as a decoy constantly in MSG. For non-Gundam, if you count GaoGaiGar Protect Wall as a Shiel...

0083 Rebellion makes an attempt at investigating AE corruption but conveniently the fall guy for the GP04 is found dead and all their other leads go nowhere.

Re: The best thing ever been thrown by a mecha?

For serious moments I'll echo SonicSP and go with the Lance of Longinus.

For less serious I'd go with Gurren throwing Lagann in the very early episodes of TTGL.

For WOW! moments I'd go with Shining Gundam launching Kowloon Gundam during the Shinjuku arc of G Gundam.

Re: Jegan Beam Rifle Power Rating

Excellent, I'm glad that kind of information is available, thank you for sharing. I've always liked the Jegan design since it very clearly adapted to the next generation of warfare as MS had less and less armor but higher mobility, if the GM III is continuing the design thinking of the MK II the Jeg...

Re: Jegan Beam Rifle Power Rating

Hmm, I wonder if there's any qualitative information out there such as "a new shorter beam rifle was developed for the Jegan which had a higher rate of fire than the more powerful GM III beam rifle"

Re: Project G: Upcoming Grendizer Project

Ah I see, so the relatively happy ending of Great Mazinger gets a bit more grimdark. Sounds interesting but I think I prefer the original myself.

Re: Repair Capabilities onboard a Musai or Chivvay

That's a good point, I'm sure AE would be happy to small batch manufacture parts at an extreme premium price tag. And with their various divisions being compartmentalized I could easily see them creating some parts under the guise of prototyping then conveniently after testing the disposed of parts ...

Re: Gerbera and Gerbera Tetra?

which gun is actually more powerful
I don't know if GP04's beam rifle power rating is listed but typically a long beam rifle has a higher power rating than a standard beam rifle. Unless you're referring to the prototype beam rifle that GP01 used once.

Jegan Beam Rifle Power Rating

Is there any source that lists the power rating in MW for the Jegan's Beam Rifle? I checked on MAHQ and I think it's the only Federation suit from CCA without a MW rating. I checked on other suits that can use the Jegan Beam Rifle (Messer, Gustav Karl, ReZel) but don't have anything listed either.

Re: Gerbera and Gerbera Tetra?

Setting aside weapons and looking at performance specs, the Gerbera Tetra also has significantly higher thruster output (216,000kg compared to 171,000 for the original Gundam Gerbera). Where did you find the numbers for the original GP04 Gerbera's thrust? I remember looking at MAHQ for that a while...
