Re: Core Fighter Power?

Core Boosters were created to make up for the poor aircraft performance of the core fighter. While the Core Booster itself had good firepower to use against mobile suits with its mega particle cannons via long range support, it is still no match for mobile suits without support like other aircraft/s...

Re: Return of the Gundamn! Mailbag Submission Thread

If there was a Gundam theme park, what kind of Gundam based rides/attractions would you like to see.

I got 2:

1. Axis drop where rides doing on top and dropping fast.

2. THIS IS A REAL ROCK Bumper cars where riders ride in cars based on Real Rock Guy or Katz

Re: The Gundam F91?

Yeah, its a very limited mass production unit with the F91. Just a small downgrade compared to the prototype. Performance wise its about the same as Seto mentioned, the main things omitted is the armor and bio-computer, the later only being most effective by newtypes.

Re: The Gundam F91?

Is it fair to say the F91 would still be a strong unit during the Zanscare War? Its specs are still quite strong compared to most mobile suits of that period. Although it also depends if we are talking about the MP unit from Crossbone or the prototype one from the movie. The MP one is still a pretty...

It only took Gundam Narrative to even explain the actual Origin of Full Frontal, the Unicorn novel actually stated that in the story, the anime did not.

Re: Making sense of the Jegan's evolution

Type D is a minor update of the original Jegan.

Most things are either developed from the original Jegan and the Type D. Jegan's multi-role design allows are various upgrades/variations. It really does have quite a number of them.

Re: Destiny & Legend's performance

Its just the way it was used in the anime and the flawed writing. The concept is perfectly fine as it is a multi-role unit. Thank god the Master grade of the Destiny had a revised and much better design. So much so that many video games use the MG version design of the Destiny over the anime version.

Re: The Spider Tank?

Patlabor had it too with the multi-legged military labors.

Dominion Tank Police had a spider-tank too but that is a similar thing to Ghost in the Shell given its a Masamune Shiro work too.

Re: 86 Anime.

2nd season is currently airing with 2 episodes out.

The opening for the 2nd season is quite better than the one from season 1.

Although I'm curious in anyone's thoughts on season 2 so far.

There is a wiki for Muvluv you can google and see the development history of the TSF. They were based on a humanoid worker NCAF-X1 unit that was made for lunar operation (Briefly seen in Total Eclipse). But then the BETA attacked. The F-4 was the 1st TSF and heavily armored.

Re: Destiny & Legend's performance

Destiny is a all rounder unit and the most balanced out of the 4. Strong in both melee and range combat, but its speed and maneuverability is one of the best features too. Problem is, the writing of the show just dumbs down both Destiny and Legend performance. The actual specs on both units are pret...

Re: Medieval Knight Mecha?

Yeah fantasy mecha for the most part never really took off in Japan. Escaflowne was more popular outside of Japan too. Speaking of Sunrise, there was another fantasy mecha show from the mid 90s, Lord of Lord Ryu Knight, all fantasy based with SD'ish looking designs. Not only a TV series, but 2 diffe...
