Gelgoog development acceleration?

From what I heard, the Gelgoog's deployment was postponed by Zeonic having difficulty with miniaturizing beam weapons to the same extent as the Gundam did. Realistically, how much help would it be to Zeonic's engineers if they got their hands on one Guncannon plus beam rifle plus a kidnapped Tem Ray...

Re: Antarctic Treaty stance on radiological area denial

Even M'Quve isn't THAT dumb. Um... M'Quve tried to launch a nuke in canon despite the explicit treaty ban. I think he is that dumb. And the above thing would be armed when the base is being abandoned, so non-POW Zeon forces wouldn't be affected. The question came to me after having read the Zeon ev...

Antarctic Treaty stance on radiological area denial

What the title says. We all know that the treaty bans the use of nuclear weapons - but what about conventional weapons salted with radioisotopes for contamination purposes, rather than nuclear fission? If, for example, M'Quve were to booby-trap Odessa with smoke bombs spiked with powdered cesium-137...

Re: Hypothetical OYW-era MS preference for CCA-era Char

Exactly. Again, Amuro wasn't told about it and finds out the hard way during A Baoa Qu that the brass apparently decided to use him as a guinea pig because of "hey, if this thing makes an Oldtype fight like a Newtype, wonder what happens if we give it to someone who's already a Newtype?" The answer,...

Re: Hypothetical OYW-era MS preference for CCA-era Char

First, I am going to assume here that Amuro gets the NT-1, which was initially IIRC created for him, though it was damaged in the Zeon attack at Side 6, plus the war ended not long afterwards. He indeed has the NT-1. Zeon indeed tries to make a move on it, but the White Base gets there in time. Add...

Re: Hypothetical OYW-era MS preference for CCA-era Char

Another thing to potentially consider is that in this scenario, both Amuro and Char have beyond-Scirocco level Newtype abilities. Char isn't meant to win , he's meant to merely not die. Amuro has a considerably bigger reputation by this point than in canon (Zeon put an immediate-three-rank promotion...

Re: Hypothetical OYW-era MS preference for CCA-era Char

In this scenario, whatever suit Char uses will ultimately have to go up against CCA-era Amuro in the Alex and not die in seconds.

Hypothetical OYW-era MS preference for CCA-era Char

As the title says, I have a scenario where late-OYW Char has all his CCA-era experience and knowledge, consequently he knows the Gundam's full capabilities and is settling for no less than going in loaded for bear. After having went through a Gouf and a Kampfer F-type, I can't figure out which of th...

Re: General Fanfiction Discussion 2: Electric Boogaloo

I too considered making an original Gundam fanfic, but couldn't decide where to post it on FF.net because they don't have a Misc. Gundam section. What I was thinking of is an interstellar setting taking place somewhere around the 25th century. There's a standard Earth-vs-colonies thing going on, but...
