Re: Core Fighter Power?

So individually, how powerful would the Core Fighters be in battle? They seem way more powerful than the Saberfish and Tin Cod: and definitely outclassed the Dopp in battle, but how would they hold up in battle against regular MS? 12000HP (MG Manual given spec, likely inline with either Gundam Cent...

Re: Jaburo History?

Maybe it was some kind of remote fortress or command center (like Greenbrier Bunker or NORAD, or something). Like if the worst case scenario happened , it was a underground city the Federation government could flee to. Then when the outbreak of war occurred it was decided that Jaburo was the best l...

On a slightly different note. Was the Dijeh made specifically for Amuro? Or was it assigned to him?
Not specifically for him, just assigned.
Unless you are talking about other later version like the Rick Dejih (Amuro Custom).

Re: The Dijeh in Space?

True, when you look at the the more Science Fantasy angle of stories like Narrative and to a degree Turn A Gundam, Gigantis story doesn't seem that outlandish, even if Hasagawa claimed it to be non-canon. Especially when you compare it with Hasagawa's other UC works like Crossbone, which themselves...

Re: The Dijeh in Space?

Funny part is, by Sunrise's own guideline (well, Sunrise is no more, and it look like they don't care about it anymore either, but I digress), Gigantis' Counterattack only become unquestionable non-canon when Unicorn got animated (and contradict it with Minerva's status). Until then, it's just extr...

Re: Jaburo History?

So is it ever explained when exactly Jaburo was built? Was it built at the start of the Universal Century? Or was it built in the UC 70's? The only informative I can easily find is in the Origin(which falls into the whole manga/anime canon thing) which seems to indicate that Jaburo is fairly new, o...

Re: The Dijeh in Space?

So were there any MSV or Spinoff Manga in the 80's (not exactly cannon, but still) that showed Amuro's activities during the First Neo-Zeon War? Or was this first explored in Gundam Evolve? Not exactly in the 80's. The completely non-canon Gundam vs Gigantis(Ideon) https://www.mahq.net/mecha/gundam...

Re: How powerful was the Hyaku Shiki?

Wasn't the purpose of those scenes to show that Haman and Scirocco were able to use their impressive Newtype abilities to land their shots on Hyaku Shiki's exposed joints which didn't have the anti-beam coating. Thus showing they were a more serious threat (and Newtype) than Char the previous show'...

Re: How powerful was the Hyaku Shiki?

its only advantage is more verniers. I guess also the pretty dubious and cheesy golden anti-beam coating. Which is not really shown to be really up to its claims. Unlike ZZ which had a scene where it is soaked in a large diameter beam and came out almost unscathed, Hyakushiki's leg was pretty much ...

Excellent, thanks for all the help so far! I remember when I first saw the Hi-Streamer designs by Yukinobu Hoshino I thought they were wild, even more exotic than Syd Meads take on Turn-A Gundam. Yeah, those are the publisher's response to the mess Bandai/Sunrise created with Nagano Mamoru. We don'...

Re: The Pegasus Class.

There's probably different reasons for this. The out of Universe reason is the fact that nobody knew the franchise that would ensue when they made FG, so there wasn't as much technical data and worldbuilding. Let's face it there's been plenty of retcons after FG. So as a result continuity on the OY...

In the opening of Gundam Unicorn we see a Stark Jegan firing a very wide scatter shot at the Kshatriya from its bazooka. Is this the same kind of scatter shot that the Clay Bazooka fired or something different? The three large missiles on its shoulders also appear to be carrying a similar payload. ...

Re: Ground Use Only Mobile Suits

I don't know, because in recent games we also get quite a lot of close combat MS in space. Which close combat focused MS were you thinking of in space? The only ones that come to mind for me are the Gyan and GM Striker. To clarify I mean close combat type (白兵戦型) or melee type (格闘型) Not the Fighter ...
