Re: Old Imageshack links?

Imageshack switched from free accounts to paid accounts in 2014, and deleted all free accounts that didn't switch over to paid in 2016, which would have broken all the links to Imageshack people posted here. so that is probably why they're redirecting you to the homepage. i'm not sure if you can go ...

Re: Realistic Mobile Weapon Classification Systems

Re: Realistic Mobile Weapon Classification Systems

@ShadowCell I would think that advances in laser CIWS would render even hypersonic guided missiles ineffective, if that is what you were referring to by prceision weapons. assuming, of course, that there are advances in laser CIWS that are not matched by corresponding advances in guided missiles or...

Re: Realistic Mobile Weapon Classification Systems

"positing conjectures" is just a fancy way of describing handwaving. like, i can just as easily "conjecture" that precision weapons will get more precise and destructive, meaning mecha will still be slow unwieldy targets.

Re: Realistic Mobile Weapon Classification Systems

i mean physics is one reason why giant humanoid mecha are unfeasible as military weapons but there are other reasons, like the thing where modern precision weapons make mecha just huge unwieldy targets, which is why Gundam usually has some sort of Macguffin (e.g. Minovsky particles) to eliminate tho...

Re: Realistic Mobile Weapon Classification Systems

Though the thing about what you mention in the last paragraph of your reply is that these days there is already so much preexisting military technology, vehicles, classification and other infrastructure etc. that the development of gigantic humanoid vehicles probably wouldn't be anywhere near as si...

Re: So there’s something that’s been bothering me about Epyon

OZ also had the five Gundam scientists captive before the Epyon's reveal, and also captured the Wing Zero itself after Quatre's rampage, so unless i'm misremembering the chronology of events, they could've just gotten it that way.
