Re: GM Striker Kai - What Do We Know?

Consider, if you will, that those examples are extremely high-end one-off or limited production mobile suits that either either explicitly or implicitly have better computer equipment than the average mobile suit. Presumably as mobile suit technology continued to advance, the need to manually repro...

Re: How easy can you modify a non-moveable frame MS to a moveable frame one?

The problem with trying to compute this as a monocoque design is that you end up with some unusual stressors in a variety of weird places, especially where the sole of the foot corners to meet the armored skin going up the side of the foot. I'm not even sure how to begin computing THAT one. If it w...

Re: How easy can you modify a non-moveable frame MS to a moveable frame one?

Just standing still, you're looking at a compressive load of 73,700kg at 1g. The yield strength of A36 steel is 25kN per square centimeter, or 25.5kg at 1g per square centimeter. To stand on one foot (which you need to be doing assuming you mean to walk) you need a footprint of approximately 30 squ...

Re: How easy can you modify a non-moveable frame MS to a moveable frame one?

Given that the disparity between the claims of monocoque design and actual depiction extends into the animation itself and the sheer consistency with which these mobile suits are depicted as having internal load-bearing frames throughout their bodies over literal decades of material, it's vastly mo...

Re: How easy can you modify a non-moveable frame MS to a moveable frame one?

Given how old some of the cutaways I'm looking at are, I suspect it's more a simple case of them not knowing what the term actually means. I'd say the artist and whoever wrote the description are different, and obviously the artists have no idea what the term means. Well, at least the early plastic...

Re: How easy can you modify a non-moveable frame MS to a moveable frame one?

The more I read about the movable frame in Gundam , the more I'm convinced that this is a case of "you keep using that word, I do not think it means what you think it means". It doesn't even really make sense, looking at it. If you look at the anime itself and the cutaways in artbooks, even the 1st...

Re: GM Striker Kai - What Do We Know?

Other than a few MS that replaced the legs with some sort of rocket thrusters that is less than 1g in thrust to mass ratio, I don't see any reason a space use MS cannot be used on the ground, especially when most of them still has to work in space colonies with a very similar gravity. They may not b...

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

That said: GBO2 is - to my best knowledge - not an official source for lore. It can offer ideas and speculation, but nothing that is truly factual to the UC Gundam setting. (The game has various lore errors anyway...) Since the Beam Bazookas are designed for Rick Doms, which does not have a beam we...

Re: How easy can you modify a non-moveable frame MS to a moveable frame one?

Most makers of stretch vehicles use overlapping frame rails to increase the strength of the resulting stretch vehicle. By making the stretch frame rail slightly smaller than the manufacturer's frame, several inches of stretch frame are actually inside of the manufacturer's frame and the two frames ...

Re: How easy can you modify a non-moveable frame MS to a moveable frame one?

"Modify" might be the wrong word. The way it's described, it sounds a lot more like what Axis Zeon did was build an entirely new movable frame MS around the core components of the HADES system they salvaged from the Pale Rider wreckage that Zeon captured during the One Year War using mostly Neo Zeo...

Re: Wing: G-Unit's accelerate rifle

It should also theoretically be more precise over range than a Minovsky beam weapon since there aren't opposing-charge particles in the beam causing it to lose collimation. Isn't it that opposing charge helps neutralize the beam and keep it to stay together, other than having the same charge which ...

Re: The Musai's Anti-Air Missile Launchers

I'd say laser guidance is a more preferred choice, considering Kuniowara specifically designed a laser guided spy missile that has a control range of 200km. IR is possible after inertial guidance once close enough like Seta Kaiba said, diffraction makes it harder than normal but if you are at the pr...

Yes, in the reactor. The reactor is enclosed by i-field and magnetic fields. But into the vacuum of space they disperse at high velocity.

Re: The Musai's Anti-Air Missile Launchers

I agree with Geelgog Jager. I think that IR missiles are used in Gundam too as antiship and AA support. Because of the Minowsky particles, they are unaccurate and not so powerful because of the protection of electronics from Minowsky interference (but all the electronics we see in gundam are protec...

Re: Gundam Wing: No Mobile Amours?

Getting back to the original MA idea in OYW, it is at first a contender for the next generation mobile weapons against the MS, where the MIP's MIP-X1 entered the competition against the Zeonic's AMBAC tester, which I'd like to unofficially call ZI-XA1.
