Re: How funnels are controlled?

We don't have a lot to go on here, but I'll share what I do know. We know that some degree of mental energy/focus is required, thanks to Char's Counterattack. Gyunei and Quess are both visibly upset and confused that Amuro's able to keep his funnels active longer than they can. Beyond that? I'm gues...

Re: [Narrative Spoilers] Question on MS Production

It wasn't? Huh, I didn't know that. I thought all along the Dijeh was, during 0087-0088, a unique MS. When did that change?

Re: [Narrative Spoilers] Question on MS Production

Going to drop the spoiler box because I think we're far enough into the page that people will notice spoilers before it's too late. If a mod disagrees, please spoiler-box it back up; I have no problem with that. Anyway, that's true! The Delta Gundam is an interesting case. I'm more talking about out...

[Narrative Spoilers] Question on MS Production

This thread contains spoilers about mobile suits used in Gundam Narrative. As a courtesy, I'm putting my entire post in a spoiler box since I can't really separate the spoiler from the question without revealing what the spoiler is. In Gundam Narrative, we see a trio of Dijehs take the field. This i...

Zeta/ReZEL Wrist Grenade Reloading?

I've come across claims that the Zeta Gundam, and possibly the ReZEL series by extension, can do in-field reloading of their wrist grenade launchers. After looking around, I'm not having much luck finding any official material commenting on this. Does anyone know much about it and is able to offer s...

Re: Dijeh - Is it really Earth-only?

I have a related question. The Dijehs were shown to be clearly quite effective, even in 0097. Would this suggest that other peers, such as the Doven Wolf, Bawoo, Schuzrum Dias, Dreissen, and so on are also still viable machines at that time against typical production units such as Jegan, GM III, Gea...

Re: Dijeh - Is it really Earth-only?

The Dijehs flying without a SFS surprised me, since Amuro's Dijeh needed one for flight in Zeta episodes.

Ah well. In any case, this is a pretty thorough set of answers. Thanks for the info, everyone!

Dijeh - Is it really Earth-only?

With its inclusion in Gundam Narrative, I've been curious about the Dijeh. It is often spoken of as a Earth/atmosphere-only MS, but I have to wonder... is this truly so? The usual source I see for it is video games, such as Gundam vs. Zeta Gundam classifying it as a land-use-only MS. SD Gundam Onlin...

Re: [UC 0096] Restrictions on Defenser Use?

So, this probably got lost in me editing my post well after others had replied here... I was curious, do any materials comment on how effective a single Mega Beam Launcher is as a main dogfighting gun? Or is it considered ineffective at that, such that a ReZEL Commander should switch to the beam rif...

Re: [UC 0096] Restrictions on Defenser Use?

Oh, wow. I've been so tired lately I forgot about that thread. Yikes. Anyway, these are interesting ideas. If various materials like the model kit manuals basically imply the Defenser packs are the equivalent of sending out a 'mini battleship' of sorts, that would certainly disqualify its use as a d...

Re: [UC 0096] Restrictions on Defenser Use?

Those are interesting thoughts; thanks for chiming in! MythSearcher, what thread are you referring to when you speak of Defenser-B? I'm curious what you had to say about that. The idea that the Defenser Pack makes it less agile overall makes sense, though this makes me wonder why the Gundam Mk. II u...

[UC 0096] Restrictions on Defenser Use?

I've been puzzled by something we see in Gundam Unicorn and its related stories. The idea of Defenser packs to improve a machine appears to have caught on, as evidenced by their use in the ReZEL and ReZEL Commander. Sometimes, pilots will be given authorization to attach these packs and make their u...

Re: ReZEL Defenser B Redundant Weapons?

Interesting info. Thanks! Talking of a ReZEL pulling back to change equipment... hmm. It has been a while since I watched Zeta. How quickly can a Defenser unit be attached? Was the Super Gundam able to do it in the field pretty fast? I want to say "yes", but that's going off very old memories. If so...

Oh, so THAT'S what the other arm panel is for? Neat. I was wondering where the heck it kept the sabers, couldn't tell from looking at a model kit. Cool. Thanks for the info!

Re: ReZEL Defenser B Redundant Weapons?

The GM III was part of what made me ponder the question! I always liked its mix of firepower, even if the overall mix wasn't quite right in the end and it got replaced by the Jegan for good reason. Actually, this reminds me that the ReZELs all have wrist grenade launchers. I'm curious, how many shot...

Re: ReZEL Defenser B Redundant Weapons?

I-Fields are extremely uncommon for the most part, to begin with. Fair point, though they're absolutely devastating when they show up (which is, amusingly enough, roughly 'once per war... usually near the end of it!'). It has always surprised me there isn't more effort focused on dealing with those...

Re: ReZEL Defenser B Redundant Weapons?

Well, most of the official materials (Unicorn episodes) and the games featuring the unit suggest it can maintain that barrage fairly well. I'm just sitting there wondering, "Why four beam weapons? Why not two beam, two missile so it has an answer to I-Fielded mobile armors? Not a GREAT one since it'...

ReZEL Defenser B Redundant Weapons?

I've been fascinated by the ReZEL Type C's Defenser packs lately. Defenser Pack A makes plenty of sense, but Defenser B is... bizarre, and I'm hoping someone can explain the design choice to me. Basically, a ReZEL Type C with Defenser B attached carries 2x Mega Beam Launcher and 2x Mega Particle Can...
