Re: GM Sniper Custom Family Tree

Based on the available data on effective ranges that I have for the more traditional solid ammo weapons from the One Year War era, "long range" seems to start at around 7km... which is a good 2km past the average mobile suit-carried machine gun's maximum range. I suspect you may have misread the SP...

Re: GM Sniper Custom Family Tree

They're both highly specialized units... as far as I can tell, they have essentially the same set of hardpoints that're carryover from the base model GMs they were built on. I don't think one is necessarily any more versatile than the other. The SP and SC is pretty much in effect just applying the ...

Re: Aeolia Schenberg's plan to push human evolution

I'd say he didn't really have a full plan. That is why he created Veda, which will oversee the whole process and make adjustments when needed. This is also where conspiracy comes into play. We all know that Veda can change the minds of Innovades, Ribbons thinks he has free will, but he doesn't. Veda...

I tried drawing a diagram but honestly it looks like spaghetti at this point because the development is so heavily interrelated.

Someone did make one, though it is in simplified Chinese:

Re: Some questions about the GM lineage

Must be an older, more obscure book because as far as I can tell Master Archive Mobile Suit: RGM-79 GM uses the same uncolored line art for the RGM-79A and RGM-79B. The only differences I can see comparing them side-by-side are in unit markings and the colors used for certain caution markings. Mark...

Re: Some questions about the GM lineage

Yes, RGM-79A designation has been seen, but I've never seen any official sources labelling the late type GM(the most basic form with no variation) as RGM-79B. Well, I did check... and yes, Master Archive does in fact refer to the late model base GM as the RGM-79B. Usually they are bunched up togeth...

I'd have to check, but I'm pretty sure that's actually how Master Archive handles it. They do openly use the designation RGM-79A for the initial type.

Re: Some questions about the GM lineage

- Is ther any notable difference between the standard GM, the GM Ground Type, and GM Type C? Which machine has more common part with the Gundam: the standard GM, or the GM Ground Type? While it is not officially named so, it seems quite obvious that the RGM-79C is the 3rd standard GM being mass pro...

Re: GM Sniper Custom Family Tree

Very interesting! I'm familiar with the first Ground Type from MSV, as I recall it used a railgun like weapon similar to the Desert GM but I didn't know the GM Sniper Custom predated the Ground GM completely. I'm also surpsied that the GM Sniper which is a modified Ground Type doesn't require addit...

Re: GM Sniper Custom Family Tree

Good morning everyone, I have been trying to figure out where the GM Sniper Custom is descended from. I recall from reading a GM Sniper II thread a long while ago that the Sniper Custom and GM II were developed in parallel rather than sequentially (which I suppose is required considering how many G...

Re: Just me, or does Gundam 00 still feel the most modern?

I have to blink when I see that Gundam 00 was all the way back in 2007. Regardless of the Season 1 and Season 2 divide, and whether or not parts of it could have been handled better, it strikes me that no Gundam series since has felt as modern as Gundam 00, either in aesthetic or concept. Gundam IB...

Re: Gelgoog development acceleration?

Side note, I've heard that the Sherman isn't really built with all compatible parts, just that they ship the parts made in the same area(state?) to the same battle field and thus they don't have a maintenance problem, but if you take parts from a different production location, they can be so differ...

Re: Gelgoog development acceleration?

I agree they are politically stupid to make the (if) captured Guncannon of any help. Also, technologically, the Guncannon isn't much more advanced than Zeon's own MSs in a way that can help. In order to mass produce things, you have to have the industrial technology to do so. Making one of something...

Re: Zeta Plus - atmospheric flight

Assuming it can even reach transsonic or supersonic speeds under its own power... during reentry is one thing, and level flight is something else entirely. Granted, the MSZ-006A1 Zeta Plus A1's thrust-to-weight ratio is actually pretty damned impressive by the standards of modern aircraft... it's s...

Re: Zeta Plus - atmospheric flight

ambac is just use the momentum of your limbs and/or binders to change direction no? So AMBAC is just as applicable in the air as in space. Yes and No. You can turn the thing using just AMBAC in space, but doing so in air faces 2 problems: 1) You can turn the plane by lift, like any real life plane,...

Re: Zeta Plus - atmospheric flight

Wasn't it established back in 0083 that the AMBAC system is also what provides a mobile suit with its ability to keep its balance and maneuver like a person on the ground? That's probably established in Sentinel's Gundam Wars III. Idea should be the same, AMBAC is the active balance system, whether...

Hey all - got a question I can't seem to track down any info on. The Zeta Plus A1 was built to operate entirely in atmosphere - all space and re-entry equipment is gone - and its waverider form is said to be efficient for long flights. So far so good. But the wing binders are also said to be useful...

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

Apart from generator output and energy weapon power output, the most telling metric would probably be in their maximum acceleration. A really good, fast OYW Mobile Suit isn't even pulling 1G. The Zeta tops out at 1.8G in its Waverider mode. Even the most agile mass production suits in the second ce...
