Djibril did not use the mass driver. The Seirans' shuttle, I'm guessing is good enough to get into orbit on it's own without a booster assist. Normally the Archangel - unlike the Minerva - doesn't need any support systems to re-enter the orbital space of the earth as seen in GSD. Agreed. It was just...

I see. In that case, it seems that a certain subber's failure rate remains consistent. Not to go into too much detail, but between different subbing groups, it's not the fault of the subber. It's bad if the same subber is switching between army and naval rankings when they shouldn't (i.e. 2 people ...

could it be the thickness of the shield producing much more resistance against a saber? kind of like cutting a thin piece of butter vs a thick piece of butter. after all, the shield probably has the thickest armour in the whole MS itself Possibly. If the shield material was that dense to provide re...

I'm surprised no one has mentioned embedded systems in this conversation. All robotics uses some form of an embedded system to govern it's movement. Some system has to be there to translate your instructions to the machine. That's where an embedded system is. If your car has ABS or power steering, y...
