Re: Would you prefer more missiles or shoulder-mounted cannons?

Is there any example of the GM III's missile working well in space? Also, they did invent Funnel Missiles with the Penepelope. I wonder if Newtypes had not faded into legend by the time of Victory, would we see long-range ship-to-ship combat became a thing again, with each ship had its own team of ...

Re: Would you prefer more missiles or shoulder-mounted cannons?

Depends on the density of Minovsky particles. The GM III long range missiles(at least the leg mounted ones) are supposed to be VERY accurate. In a period where Minovsky particles aren't scattered like crazy, I guess missiles should be better than the skill based cannon. If the unfortunate target's s...

Re: The Official Gundam Build Divers Re:RISE Thread Mk I

Also, looked up on Honzuki no Gekokujou / Ascendance of a Bookworm , it seems interesting. Probably will check it out soon, since all anime I was watching, except for 1, ended. Will help bridge the gap to Strike Witches: Road to Berlin , and obviously Re:RISE Season 2. Hint: Bookworm also has a sea...

Re: The Official Gundam Build Divers Re:RISE Thread Mk I

It is ironic, Re:RISE started out pretty weak, but turned out quite interesting in the last few episodes. Usually better shows need to build up the tension in the beginning, unlike fast food shows that tries to lure you in with tons of special effects and high tension scenes but cannot keep up the ...

Re: Turn A Theory.

The first two Heisei Kamen Rider (Kuuga and Agito) are interesting in that there're hints of them being in the same continuity (mostly of the gears used by G3 team) but there's no explicitly stated to be in the same continuity. When Decade rolled in, the alternate reality version of both show dispa...

Ep 12 took a deep turn, and things gets seriously grimmer than the previous light-hearted situations.

Re: Arrangement of thrusters on the Wing Zero Custom's wings

I haven't got a Gunpla of Wing Zero Custom to check it out, but can anyone here check their models for me to see how exactly are the thrusters arranged on the wings? Are they positioned between the feathers? If so, then I wonder how do these thrusters work without being interfered by the feathers. ...

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...

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.

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...
