Re: The Official Gundam Hathaway Mecha Thread Mk I

The Gustav Karl indeed has heavy/thick armor, that is specifically pointed out in the HGUC model kit manual and in the Gundam Narrative's official profile. I also won't say the base weight is barely more, the Gustav Karl is about 36% heavier even though it is only about 8% taller. As for the max wei...

Re: How funnels are controlled?

We know that some degree of mental energy/focus is required, thanks to Char's Counterattack. Gyunei and Quess are both visibly upset and confused that Amuro's able to keep his funnels active longer than they can. As per the archived Gundam Official website , Amuro's fin funnels can last longer as t...

Re: So...we'll finally see all 26 Mission Packs?

...I mean, they had figured the F91 out by 0111, right? ... That certainly did not happen in 0111, heck SNRI only completed F90 in September that same year (as per the Japanese wiki and the timeline on defunct Gundam Official. website). UC0111 is also the same year in which the EFF started the comp...

For reference, the Gundam Mk-II Beam Rifle by AE with the same shaped E-pac has an output of 2.6MW and a maximum of 7 shots at max power if I recalled correctly.
According to the manual of the HG Revive AEUG ver., it should be 7 shots at normal output and 3 shots at max output.

This change in the English name is also noted in the small blurb about Cross Born Dust in the Japanese wiki.

Re: F89 Gundam F89 Notes

Considering the time it was created, should we presume that these parts actually came from the Heaygun? In this case, were SRNI panicked that Anaheim was able to rollout a miniature mass-production MS before them? For the first question, it is worth considering if the Heavygun's parts is compatible...

Re: F89 Gundam F89 Notes

Although I'm not sure whether the F70 Cannon Gundam was developed before the F-89 since that was the prototype to the mass produced F-71 G-Cannon although the G Cannon was manufactured by Anaheim... So basically the F90 is just a rehash of the F89 with the aim of improving miniaturization and modul...

Ah well, not the first time a source book says something that is contradicted by other sources. It sounds like the case of the Destiny Impulse Gundams in side material of Seed ...

Re: Dijeh - Is it really Earth-only?

The regular Dijeh's info states that its backpack with the radiator fins are made for limited atmospheric flight which for UC 0087 was still pretty rare for non-transforming MS, so that's one reason why its a ground unit only. And like Chris stated above, the Rick Dijeh has the backpack replaced fo...

So does that mean the MP F91 only use the normal Gundamrium armor that has been in use since the last century? I wonder what could have made MCA armor so expensive, because if they can not afford it for the MP F91, then they sure can't with the Jamesgun or the Javelin. Gundamrium alloy & ceramic co...

For those interested, around 3:20 - 3:24 of episode 6, the line directly above Shahryar and Tigerworlf in the magazine cover reads 'シャフリヤールダイバー姿を初公開!' and that translates into 'First public reveal of Sharyar's Diver look'.
