Re: Obscure Mecha Refernces?

The Big O reference the opening credits of an old British Sci Fi show Called UFO. The Big O uses music that sounds incredibly similar to the opening credits song of UFO (this is mostly obvious in the third appearance of Beck) That was for the second season. The first season's opening credits refere...

the AIF-9B Ghost used by the Earth New UN Forces c.2051, which appears to be a mass production version of the X-9
So the AIF-9B has exact same weapons as the X-9?

Do the booster pods of the X-9, 7S, and 9V have missile launcher ports or does the front part of each pod open up on a hinge?

The multipurpose missile launchers, like those of the Ghost X-9, are on either side of the centerline just behind the blisters containing the particle beam cannons.
I'm assuming the two booster pods mounted on top?

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

Where are the missile launchers located in the AIF-7S Ghost from Frontier? Taken from the Macross Compendium site: two built-in micro-missile launchers two multi-purpose missile launchers I also noticed that the AIF-9V has 8 obvious beam guns. The AIF-7S is stated to have only two yet it has the sam...

Re: Nomenclature with Weapons on a Ship (UC)

Aside from the White Base, what other UC ships have shell-firing guns?

Re: Nomenclature with Weapons on a Ship (UC)

Wait, the main guns on the UC ships fire conventional shells? In animation, what they fire look more like energy beams.

I always assumed that if it's not a mega particle cannon, then it's just a beam cannon/gun.

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

You mentioned that the UN Spacy Marine Corps use the Neo Glaug bis. That got me thinking about the UN Army. Do they still use destroids?

Is the VA-3 still in use? I would wager that the M model is very useful for underwater operations.

Does a "UN Air Force" exist or is it supplanted by the UN Spacy?

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

Kind of odd that the VB-6 can not reach escape velocity. I expected it to have engines powerful enough to do that.

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

I'm assuming that the VF-3000, VF-5000, VF-9, VF-11, VF-14, VA-3, and VB-6 don't have escape velocity capability?

What about the Variable/Neo Glaug?

Do the improved/advanced versions of the VF-1 (VF-1X, VF-1X+, VF-1X++, VF-1EX) have the capability to reach escape velocity under their own power?

Re: Least Powerful/ Weakest Gundams?

Counting anime-only Gundams, it's either the RX-78-2 or RX-79[G].

Re: Which units in the Gundam 00 universe are confirmed to have/use GN composite armor?

So, all Gundams (all factions) from Exia onwards have GN armor?

Do any of the non-Gundam MS/MA have GN armor?

Aquarion seems to be a modified recolor of the same designs we see in Nobunaga and M3.
Sousei no Aquarion predates Nobunaga the Fool and M3 by about 9 years.

Some of Kawamori's designs after 2005 have that Aquarion aesthetic.
