Was a MS mentioned in Kampfer?

Just watch episode 1 of Kampfer. A lined was mention, 'So you are agile, so you think you're a Mobile Suit?' Was she referring to this MS-18E Kämpfer :?: As all fighters are call Kampfer. I think it's fun that Gundam is referred in other anime. I think it's assume that the audience would have unders...

Re: Relative difference in Gundam Designs of the UC

I just realize that most AE Gundams is using Zeon technology, or at least engineers from Zeon. And if AE cannot get their hands on the technology, they steal. (F90 story?)

Re: just thinking aloud: plasma technology, planets, and a ring

Wanna try and make your own robot cartoon? Fine, but guess what? It's not gonna be Gundam. Unless Sunrise/Bandai pay you lots of money so that they could have the rights to make an anime. Ok let see. UC started the whole thing off with the m-particles and newtype people. It's 'suppose' to end with ...

Re: Relative difference in Gundam Designs of the UC

How about the Unicorn. In normal mode, it's the most 'un-Gundam' Gundam. In fact, it looks more like a GM with a pointy antenna. It will only look like a Gundam for 5 minutes.

Re: Are Bullpups the gun of the future?

In what way are bullpups worse than conventional designs in any of the categories you mentioned? Bullpups are neither worse or better. It have to fit the overall aim of the design. And if a bullpup and a conventional design are just as good, the final factor of which rifle will be used would be how...

Re: Are Bullpups the gun of the future?

Let's get to real life. Future assault rifle will have to have these problems resolve. 1. Reliability. Rifle jamming is part of combat. A design that reduce jamming is essential. 2. Ruggedness. Unlike sporting rifle or sniper rifle, assault rifle have to endure dust, snow, water, mud and all kind of...

Re: Are Bullpups the gun of the future?

there's another thing coming to mind. advances in body armor will start limiting the usefulness of some weapons to keep up the need for more powerful weapons will come and the bulpup could be the solution. (don't shoot me down before you hear it all) a general observation is the longer barrels are ...

Re: Asteriod bases/ Battle tactics

The thing that's always surprised me about asteroid battles is how no one opts for sieges. Granted, that's not nearly as dramatic as an epic fleet battle, but, historically, that's how a lot of armies have dealt with an enclosed, fortified position. I suppose the three-dimensional nature of space m...

Re: Are Bullpups the gun of the future?

And not all bullpups are futuristic. For example, the M41A Pulse Rifle that the Colonial Marians uses in Aliens is actually the ol' M1A1 Thompson, with parts from Franchi SPAS-12 shot gun. And the grande luncher is Remington M870 shotgun. And the slap on a LED counter. What I read that the MP5 did ...

Re: Are Bullpups the gun of the future?

The barrel length of most bullpups and conventional guns are the same. It looks shorter because the round is chambered further back. The shorter overall length is an advantage in FIBUA (Fighting In Built Up Area) or in jungle warfare. And not all bullpups are futuristic. For example, the M41A Pulse ...

Re: No Space Suits for Bridge Crew of CE Battleships?

Short of proper explanation, these are my theories: When the ship explode, it does not really matter if you are in a suit or not. Everyone dies. So it's better for the bridge crew work in a comfortable attire so that they can perform at their peak. If the ship is damage, there will be enough time to...

Hope that it will not be as over rated as in Destiny's Palma Fiocina.

BTY, if you put a Zaku head to a Gundam, would it still be a Gundam? Like in Zaku Zeta in ZZ?
