Re: Estimating the destructive energies of the OYW Beam Rifle and Bazooka.

... where in blue blazes did you get an idea like that? Practically every publication larger than a DVD/BD pamphlet lists the author(s), editor(s), and other contributors on the same page with the publisher's statement of copyright and/or on the content itself when it comes to your typical periodic...

Re: Estimating the destructive energies of the OYW Beam Rifle and Bazooka.

To save some time, you might want to answer the question at the end of the reply first. If I am getting you wrong, you might not want to reply to the whole thing. Generally, I don't consider model kit and toy manuals to be authoritative sources of information because we have zero idea who wrote it, ...

Re: Estimating the destructive energies of the OYW Beam Rifle and Bazooka.

Great example mentioning the Fin Funnels but given that having an onboard generator increased their operation limit significantly then I suspect that mobile suits may actually only be capable of refuelling propellant for their funnels and not resupplying the e-caps. Incidentally, the reason why E-P...

Re: Estimating the destructive energies of the OYW Beam Rifle and Bazooka.

You keep stressing it, but your source for the existence of these capacitors appears to be outdated... every publication I've been able to find that identifies the blocks on the Gundam's waist calls them "helium cores". Even model kit books. I listed Gundam Officials' "power box". PG and MG 1.0 Man...

Re: Estimating the destructive energies of the OYW Beam Rifle and Bazooka.

Y'know what, I'm gonna skip everything else and just down to the meat and potaotes of this topic. The problem we're having here is you still fundamentally misunderstand how these weapons work. There is no direct relationship between the energy from the mobile suit's generator and the energy output ...

Re: Estimating the destructive energies of the OYW Beam Rifle and Bazooka.

They're the same amount of energy... 1.9 megawatts is 1.9 megajoules per second. You are saying they are not the same thing exactly. Thank you. 1.9MJ and 1.9MJ/s are two different things. We have always said that the power ratings on the beam weapons are useless because they do not give a time on i...

Re: Estimating the destructive energies of the OYW Beam Rifle and Bazooka.

The output of the XBR-M-79-07G beam rifle is given as 1.9MW - 1.9 megajoules per second - meaning that the MS would only need to devote about 9.2% of its generator output to charging the weapon for 15 seconds if that part about needing to charge for 15 seconds is even applicable to this weapon. It ...

Estimating the destructive energies of the OYW Beam Rifle and Bazooka.

Warning: Long Essay detected. Summarized: Beam Rifle energy: ~100MJ Bazooka energy: ~300~400MJ This stems from a question asked in another forum, about the reason SRW placing the Bazooka weapons as a higher attack weapon(with a larger damage) than Beam Rifles in most UC MSs. (Specifically about UC) ...

Re: Albion's use of laser turrets

I'm pretty sure it was UC. But if Beam Resistant Coating is different than the Anti-Beam Coating of the Hyaku Shiki. It's possible that it's simply something they've added more recently, I haven't been keeping up with Gundam in recent years. You are not entirely wrong. While the coating is first us...

Re: Was the Tarus mobile suit a suitable replacement...?

Even on Earth the Taurus is better cause it can transform and fly. I'm guessing it can maneuver around too since it has actual thrusters on its body, so a rocket assisted jump is possible, although that's only if its retooled for Earth use. And we see a lot of Taurus' working in the atmosphere with...

Re: How funnels are controlled?

Given the incredible precision we've seen funnels and bits used with, I think it's unlikely that they're just executing preprogrammed attack sequences based on target selection. The pilot has to be exerting direct control over them through the psycommu to do something as fiddly as neatly snipping o...

Re: Was the Tarus mobile suit a suitable replacement...?

My point on versatility is not about what each MS is able to equip, but rather a nod to how many weapons they can equip at any one time. What I'm saying is, I would prefer a Leo that can simultaneously equip a shield, beam sabres, atmo/space flightpack, shoulder mounted beam cannon and a beam rifle...

Re: Albion's use of laser turrets

Could you maybe be thinking of the Cosmic Era, where anti-beam coatings were applied to shields only because it'd mess up the phase shift armor? Not mess up the PS armour, but increased the metal fatigue rate. Most of the MS using ABC in CE don't have PS armour. Also, I believe the main culprit to ...

Re: How would a medieval battlefield look like with mecha?

It is also weird to me about how Sengokuden and Sangokuden came to be. I mean, the Sengoku era and Romance of the Three Kingdoms have always been popular subjects in Japan, but Gundam? That's just how popular stories about those two periods are in Japan... you get everything from the period-accurat...

Re: How would a medieval battlefield look like with mecha?

There were a few, like Eisenhower, Rommel, etc., but yeah they weren't exactly thick on the ground. It's just that if there's one conflict that Americans over-romanticize the way Japan over-romanticizes the Sengoku period, it'd be World War II. Prominent, yeah... but they're also fictional/mytholog...

Re: Albion's use of laser turrets

Has there been any references as to why the Albion uses laser turrets instead of mega particle weapons? They do seem to have a good rate of fire if the animation is anything to go by. Though technically lasers shouldn't be visible? The laser turrets are for AA guns, which in older OYW ships are not...

Re: Was the Tarus mobile suit a suitable replacement...?

I get that it's a higher performance machine, however the downside to this is that it has a major drop in versatility. The Taurus's standard equipment is simply a beam rifle. It can optionally carry a beam cannon or beam sabre but this was far from the norm. I guess what I'm trying to say is that t...

Re: How would a medieval battlefield look like with mecha?

World War II, man. Americans churn out World War II fiction and games the way Japan does with the Sengoku period, though it lacks the "larger than life" historical domain character aspect of it. You'd almost suspect it was the last time America had a clear win over an unambiguously evil foe. The Am...
