Re: The Jegan A-Type's long beam rifle, and some ramblings about the Jegan line.

So the most likely scenario is the the Jeddah's rifle came first, then the Jegan A-Type's, and then finally the standard Jegan's beam rifle. It is also possible for Jegan A-Type's beam rifle to come later, as an improved model of the one used by Vasuki/Yazan Gable's GM III Night Seeker but retainin...

Re: The Jegan A-Type's long beam rifle, and some ramblings about the Jegan line.

3. What is the justification for the shift from the Stark Jegan to the Jegan B-Type? The Stark Jegan and Jegan B-type actually have different roles/purpose, so there might not have been a shift as you assumed. The Stark Jegan is said to be for anti-ship assault as per the HGUC manual, while the Gun...

The 1/144 HGAC Wing Gundam model kit manual (in the manual's MS profile text, not the Buster Rifle text) did note that it is possible to adjust the Buster Rifle's output to vary the attack area, but it did not say if doing so affect the number of shots.

Are you sure that it is arm-mounted in GBO2? The video i have seen have the beam saber stored on the rear skirt.

Re: Uses of mecha technologies outside of mechas?

In Gundam AGE, the AGE System would eventually be used to make the Everse System, which is used to protect Mars from the harmful solar rays. I think it's EXA-DB since AGE System is destroyed along with Diva. The AGE System is fine actually. The EXA-LOG chapter that first featured the Everse System ...

Re: Gustav Karl

For that matter, the current design of the Jeda that we have from MOON Gundam is clearly meant to be a common ancestor to all three MS lines (Jegan/Jesta/Gustav Karl) instead of only the Jegan as previous info implies. Just curious, do you have a source for this claim? Most of the information I can...

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...

Considering the time it was created, should we presume that these parts actually came from the Heaygun?

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...
