Re: The need for prototypes to surpass the mass-production models

There probably were GM prototypes, it was just internally tested and there was nothing to show. I know the Gundam is considered a prototype and a direct ancestor of the GM but in practice there were probably prototypes of the GM made to evaluate the GM design itself, but by the time we get to Jaburo...

Re: Best designed warship in UC

Hard to beat service life and cost. And IIRC they were even retrofitted with minovsky crafts in Victory, or some were anyway. I'm surprised we didn't see a Salamis variant that just has hangars mounted on both sides of the ship. I guess letting your MS hang from the hull is cheaper but I have to qu...

Re: Best designed warship in UC

Technically speaking, the Salamis. It literally survived from 0070s to 0150s. No other ship design survived longer than that. The survivability comes from the fact of its "incompleteness". It was designed to be highly modifiable and adaptable to different tasks, thus it can be relatively easily upg...

Re: RCX-76 Guncannon: Why did it suck so bad?

Maybe a less obvious answer as to the failings of the RCX-76 is software? They don't have learning computers right? And without the Gundam's combat data the Guncannons wouldn't really have any data for close-range combat. Meanwhile Zeon had a sizable headstart and a certain deliberation in designing...

What's the deal with the Turn A's thrust power?

In the later half of the series Turn A pushes back the Willgem, a fairly sizable ship for what it is, that intends to ram through the Turn A. Are there any numbers on the kind of thrust power the Willgem or Turn A were exhibiting? Because it seems immense to say the least considering not many MS in ...

Re: The Official Gundam Reconguista Anime Thread Mk III

Nope, Count, it didn't. And I wonder about Tomino when he said "it's all written out." I'm guessing this is confirmation that he was hoping for 50 solid episodes and just didn't get it. Shame on him. The overally story is probably different from the episode by episode storyboarding and writing. G-R...

Re: The Official Gundam Reconguista Anime Thread Mk III

That's a great revelation! Newtype ghosts do exist as it has been shown in UC verse already. So is this the only bit mysticism we've been getting from G-Reco? There were all those pressure scenes and Belliri recognising his killed victim etc. Mysticism was very prevalent in Tomino works back in the...

Only Flamina was. Mick is just tall. I don't think so. In the ED Mick is slightly taller than Flaminia's bodysuit and from what we've seen she's a bit taller than Klim; neither Flaminia nor Klim seemed particularly tall. http://i.imgur.com/XJWlxGo.jpg In the epilogue she's like a head taller than K...

Re: The Official Gundam Reconguista Anime Thread Mk III

Sadly, the Dorette Fleet cast got no development and Mashner just became a typical crazy irrational Tomino woman who longed for shota. We learned that it wasn't just some greedy power grab or some evil plot to conquer the planet. Dorette just desperately wanted his people to return to Earth regardl...

Re: The Official Gundam Reconguista Mecha Thread Mk I

Maybe the Rattle Python II wasn't completely destroyed, just the front part? And shotguns don't all fire buckshot. Slugs can be effective to 100+ meters. The Kabakali seems to be pretty weak for Mask's suit. Its pseudo funnel chakrams have to be guided by the hands, which seems less advanced than th...

http://i.imgur.com/KazkuXr.jpg That's not really an apt comparison. Homer did nothing wrong. Bellri on the other hand... Well, he kinda joined sides with pirates affiliated with Ameria, who attacked the Tower. Even if it was under orders by Colonel Cumpa, Mask had no way of knowing that. All he kne...

Wow. I think the point was that people shouldn't live in isolation, using only the prejudiced views of their ancestors to learn about the world. Instead they should expose themselves to the world and form their own conclusions from their own intuitions, rather than relying on what their parents inst...

It's definitely convoluted, but here's as best as I can make it out: -Towasanga, specifically the Dorette Fleet, secretly plans the Reconguista of Earth. -Ameria and the Capital Army come to space and both make overtures to Towasanga, ala Zeta with the AEUG/Titans/Axis. -The G-IT Corps are allied w...

Learning Computer: Where was it installed?

Has there been any confirmation as to where the learning computer was installed on MS? And was it ever used again? I imagine ALICE would be a more advanced version of it but that's the only similar tech I can think of.
