Re: GM Striker Kai - What Do We Know?

Sorry to bump this, but I have a related question: Is there anything indicating the Striker Kai is 'space-only', or should it function on land as well? I ask since what few games it has been in seem to be making it only usable on space maps/terrain and I don't understand why it would be like that.

Re: How well can the Gyan operate on the ground?

Those are all true, but I wasn't discussing lore; I was responding to how Gundam Battle Operation 2 operates. And after double-checking, I can confirm that in that specific video game, the Gyan Eos does not use a beam bazooka as standard equipment nor as optional equipment. It carries Dom and Rick D...

Re: How well can the Gyan operate on the ground?

Doesn't the Gyan Eos could use beam bazookas in Gundam Battle Operation 2? It uses a 'beam bayonet', a beam gun attached to its melee weapon. If it has the option to use beam bazookas, that's news to me. That said: GBO2 is - to my best knowledge - not an official source for lore. It can offer ideas...

Re: GM Striker Kai - What Do We Know?

So absolute tail-end of the OYW at the absolute earliest, possibly after that. Ah well, that is interesting. Thanks for sharing, Seto!

GM Striker Kai - What Do We Know?

I'm curious as to what, if anything, is known about the GM Striker Kai. The MAHQ link is limited, but here it is: https://www.mahq.net/mecha/gundam/katana/rgm-79fp-kai.htm This is not the same as the GM Striker Custom, which has a Gundam head and we have clear info on; it's a different unit. Do we k...

Re: Federation OYW MS Use Timeline?

That's quite alright that it doesn't cover Origin. This is still extremely close to what I was looking for, and fills in most of the gaps I had. Thanks for pointing this out to me!

Federation OYW MS Use Timeline?

I've been trying to piece together what mobile suits the Federation fielded in meaningful numbers, and when. Does anyone have a good resource where I can read up on this? Ideally it would include anything non-unique they fielded (mass production units, any noteworthy use of Zeon MS they got hold of,...

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...

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...

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...
