Re: What kind of education does a mecha engineer need?

Maybe this is already known, but if somebody is intrested in an official real world attempt to manufacture the Gundarium alloy with modern technologies, please take a look at the related Premium Bandai pages: https://en.gundam.info/gundarium/ and especially: https://en.gundam.info/gundarium/article_...

Re: The Four Avengers?

More precisely, V-MSV is an original design series, just like the classic MSV, Z-MSV and so on. Indeed, it features variations (=derivate versions such as team colors / markings) of MSs from Victory Gundam, more than "alternate/unused designs from the various series". All V-MSV originarily appeared ...

Re: How many Act Zaku were produced?

According to a pair of old online Japanese sources (both apparently referring to the tabletop game Twilight of Zeon), about 20 units were built in total... but of course one should take such a figure with a big grain of salt.

Re: Gihren as father of Glemmy, Puru and Alicia

I seem to vaguely recall reading somewhere that she might also have been his mistress. This happens in the original Mobile Suit Gundam novels by Tomino, which however should be considered as an alternative reality compared to the anime (by the way, here Cecilia Irene is described with a quite diffe...

Acccording to Umanosuke Iida's 4-volume manga Mobile Suit Gundam Ixtab: Goddess of the Fallen Soldiers , inside the colony Shiro joins a small group of EFF soldiers.

Re: Miscellaneous Gundam contributions

Nice findings! 8) To be honest I didn't even know about Operation Galiarest until I started on this little project; it's apparently a G-Unit sidestory (yo dawg, I heard you liked sidestories...) that focuses on two new G-Units developed from the Geminass and using data from Mercurius and Vayeate, Gu...

Re: Share your Gundam facts!

Basically, the Xeku-Eins was produced on Pezun by the EFF, thanks also to the new data obtained in U.C. 0085 with the training corps stationed in the asteroid (the same people who later will declare themselves "New Desides"). Therefore, all RMS-141 units were most likely completed way before the ver...

Re: What is this pistol-like gun in Zeon weapons set?

So all the weapons are not depend on the "coolant" tank on the back. What are these coolant tanks for though? Propellant for longe range combat? And no explanation on "Pistol-shaped power tool" Actually, both the backpack coolant tanks and the pistol-shaped tool are known since the publication of t...

Re: Lewis Halberton or Duane Halberton?

The screenshot posted earlier by Deacon shows that the first letter of the middle name for this character is "C", so perhaps the ultimate solution would be considering "Duane" as a nickname, thus having: Lewis C. "Duane" Halberton (you know, just like Leonard H. "Bones" McCoy)...

Re: Gundam 0083 Rebellion manga

This MS is called Atomic Heavy Armor GM Custom [AHA(アトミック・ヘビー・アーマー) ジム-C] so, yes it's basically an RGM-79N modified in order to launch atomic warheads (please note the two protective shields, extra armor and huge backpack heat dispersion system).

Yes, as far as can be ascertained the "normal" MSK-008 has always been a ground only mobile suit - after all, Karaba, i.e. the group for whch it was developed, operates only on Earth. Nevertheless, some modified space variants have appeared here and there, starting from the one depicted in the Kazum...
