Re: Gihren as father of Glemmy, Puru and Alicia

Probably for lack of an appropriate sample of Char... and the fact that the original was still very much around to get cross about it. Neo Zeon only started trying to clone Char after Char was generally believed to be very very dead. Say, we know that SNRI has their hand on two AI based on Amuro an...

Re: How well can the Gyan operate on the ground?

That is with mobile suit parts. Weapons are a different thing. Gelgoog and Dom/Rick-doms have no problem or issues using Zaku weapons. Since the Gyan has the reactor strength, it should be able to handle the Gelgoog's beam rifle. The Zaku II weapons required a refit in order for the Dom and Gelgoog...

Re: The revival of Core Block Technology in late U.C.

Say, on the topic of Late U.C. MS, which unit started the trend of intergrated non-handheld heavy weapons onto MS? I mean, the F-71, the F90, F91 (VBSR technically have handle for the hands to grab, though), Hardygun, Heavygun, Javelin, Victory Gundam (Overhang Pack), etc. either carry these types ...

Re: Is the Trafalgar-class still canon?

I hold a strange fondness for the Columbus-class, and by extension the Trafalgar-class, for their huge hangers on the sides. But it makes me wonder if the Trafalgar-class is still canon (is the Gundam novels considered canon?), and whether there is a reason for the Trafalgar-class creation? I mean,...

Re: Harmony Gold vs Tatsunoko

It feels like they saw how World events managed to buy out Golion from toei and thought they had the same leverage. the only diffrence was that Golion bombed hard in Japan Macross is basically a major franchise in Japanese sci-fi.

I am indebted to Seto Kaiba for the behind-the-scenes financial shell game that has shorted HG for real productive work. The Agrama family are a real piece of work.

Re: I have got a strange feeling about the EFSF's budget on weapon development

So, we've discussed how much does an MS cost before in this forum. Reading through that old threat suddenly gave me a strange thought - that the EFSF suffers from a chronic case of overbudgeting when it comes to weapon development. How many prototypes and limited-production MS did the EFSF (plus th...

Re: The obsoletion of MS-manned gun emplacements

The gun platforms were more to provide heavy battleship like beam cannons to early UC MS mainly due to there own internal reactors being unable to power them so a platform base was needed to house the Guns reactor and to move the gun. the Mega Rider was more of an evolution of the Mega Bazooka Launc...

during that final battle the Epyon system was hooked to the MD control comupter converting them from robots acting on a scripted combat system to something like UC era Bits and the units introduced in Gundam X the Bit Mobile Suits.

Re: GN Drive Tau particle colors?

it's how the GN-T drives are calibrated the Red particles are drives optimized for Beam weapons and are harmful to humans the later drives fixed this and had orange particles. the particles on the Alvaaron/ Alvatore were gold because of cosmetics Alejandro Corner really liked gold.
