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...

Re: The Musai's Anti-Air Missile Launchers

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. I don't think that in space, m particles have density like air, otherwise we would witness phenomena of aerodynamic resistance on bullets and vehicles… I am just...

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: Grypts Conflict - Titans MS Comparative Performance

Question #1 If the AEUG had a decent chunk of manpower composed of colony militia and former Zeon pilots shouldn't there be more Zeon type mobile suits being sortied? My answer: Great question!

Re: Gelgoog Jaeger/Marine question

If we use the illustrations, which usually have a skirt at ...

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. (Because the predecessor of MS-01 is ZI-XA3 and...

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...

You keep stressing it, but your source for the existence of these capacitors appears to be outdated...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".

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.

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 ...

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.

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.
