Re: Why the Guntank's tracks look like that?

Also, maybe you guys should consider moving to Thailand. Military here really love buying impractical pieces of crap at the cost of new and shiny toys, or buying a new and shiny toys at full cost and use it for impractical task that an old piece of crap would does just fine. So it's reality but say...

Re: Least Powerful/ Weakest Gundams?

Given that GM III inherits MkII's backpack and Barzam Kai is basically Barzam + MkII fusion, MkII is quite underrated.

Re: Mobile Suit jumping and landing on earth

IIRC in 0079 even stock Zaku II can make a quick repetitive 18 meters hop without any rocket assist. And for Char's Zaku during the Garma death fight it can jump very far, very high and very fast without rocket assist too.

Re: Gundam foils and the drive to heroism

At Dublin the fed itself didn't do anything, and many in its rank actually like the idea of wipping out the population there too according to the anime.

What're the green square and round thing on the upper half of Gyan Kreiger's backpack? They don't look like thrusters. https://i.pinimg.com/originals/b2/2c/bf ... 3a4533.jpg

Re: How well can the Gyan operate on the ground?

One thing I wonder about Gyan design is that why is there no thruster under its skirt and ankle armor. That would help a lot for jumping and may even allow hovering. HG Gyan Kreiger does have skirt thrusters and calf thrusters.

Re: How well can the Gyan operate on the ground?

I doubt if it sorties on its own Gyan won't be equipped with a machinegun or bazooka. For beam projectile Gyan Eos is equipped with beam gun on its beam bayonet, and in video game Gyan Kreiger has beam gun under its shield. With shorter sensor radias Gyan is still inferior to Gelgoog in ranged comba...

Re: Grypts Conflict - Titans MS Comparative Performance

Dom [not Rickdom] and its variants are still a pretty good MS on Earth, still being able to crush newer grunt MSs [not pilot by major charactors] decades later.

Asshimar is One MS from Z/ZZ era that get developed further to Anksha. IIRC in AOZ Hyzenthlay II is an attempt to duplicate Gabthley.

Re: Hypothetical OYW-era MS preference for CCA-era Char

The latest incarnation of Gelgoog Jaeger figure, Robot spirits ver. anime, still has no beam saber in its arsenal. HGUC Shin Matsunaga version has 2 beam sabers that seems to be taken from old HGUC Gelgoog Marine [whole saber mold in one piece]. Has it ever been shown where the beam saber is stored ...

Re: Hypothetical OYW-era MS preference for CCA-era Char

Based on its full performance shown by Mallet against G05 and Gelgoog, with its magnet coating joints and resulting agility Act Zaku is quite terrifying with its limiter removed (which Char is likely to do). It would be a better MS to fight Gundam than Zeong that Char cannot really capitalized on it...

Re: The Official Gundam Build Divers Anime Thread Mk I

Ko-1 scratchbuilt skill is impressive for making high quality big shuttle whose spec surpass all in-game shuttle of comparable size in one week. It must be quite costly for one mission gunpla :wink:

I laughed when they make a joking screen reminiscence of black tristar vs Matilda scene :mrgreen:
