Re: Macross Ground Variable Mecha

Given that such operations daily routine, the tactic has long been developed and effectively applied. On the example of the episode is perfectly clear - force "Londo bell" organized fire bag from which the MD of Zion could not get out, nor to organize effective resistance. Be eliminated, and only t...

Re: Macross Ground Variable Mecha

The fact is that you claimed they "all" were destroyed, but it is not, after all, lost only two mecha-tank...and put them out of action the enemy is the upper class, not ordinary soldiers I never claimed "all were destroyed". I said, once they lost the element of surprise against a regular MS, they...

Re: Macross Ground Variable Mecha

Only two of them. And, not from return fire from normal MS, but from personal models against which in battle can only survive mecha level "Delta Plus" and "Unicorn". But the usual MS destroyed by "Lotto" was no less than 8 with no losses from the Federal forces even after they were discovered and f...

Re: Macross Ground Variable Mecha

I can`t agree because of the featured scenes can be seen that after the operation the "D-50C Loto" relatively easily destroyed enemy MS despite the fire back and observing while only two units were destroyed by personal mecha but not regular As I mentioned, they had the element of surprise. Once th...

Re: Macross Ground Variable Mecha

However, the attack on "Industrial 7" (within a large space station) and in the fight for "Palau" (asteroid fortress) they showed themselves well, and therefore for their roles "entry / capture / ambush / destruction" well come ... Yet, once they lost the element of surprise, they don't fair well a...

Re: Macross Ground Variable Mecha

If you see the same "Unicorn", where most of the fighting was in space, "Lotto" quite effectively used in attacks colonies / asteroid fortresses and defense spacecraft - is quite similar to "Destroids" How many asteroids are there in open space where a Destroid could land? How often are they attack...

Re: question about various mass-produced Astrays

Not the same, it has big horizonal wings that not present in M1's pack. In Astray R short anime, these wings are add-on and can be ejected. The short anime also show that the whole backpack can be ejected and maneuver on it own, something that may not feature on M1's backpack. IIRC, the wings are a...

Re: question about various mass-produced Astrays

Also is the later version of Aile Strike pack [like one for Slaughter Dagger] better than Astray's flight pack? And is it flight capable like Astray's flight pack used by Redframe in the short anime? Red Frame's flight pack and the M1's flight pack are essentially the same. The Aile Strike packs po...

Re: question about various mass-produced Astrays

The M1 Astray's performance would be based on the design specified by the original Astrays, pre-Heliopolis blowing up. That is, unfortunately, where things diverge. The M1 Astrays use a OS modified by Kira Yamato. That design was based on his experience with Strike Gundam. Red Frame uses a modified ...

Re: Star Wars Episode VII

But of course, since this is the internet, the fanboys have latched onto everything they can complain about including that crossguard lightsaber. That's because a crossguard is designed to protect the hand of the user, not cut it off at the same time. One bad flick or movement of that wrist and the...

Re: Bullpup-style Beam Rifles

Technically, there's no such thing as a "bullpup-style" as there isn't any real action behind the trigger group or anywhere in a beam rifle. As for rear-loading e-pacs, GP01, GP03, Zeta, Re-GZ, Geara Doga, Delta Plus, ReZEL, Gun-EZ/Gunblaster, Victory/V2, all used beam rifles with e-caps that loaded...

Re: Anno Domini (Gundam 00) worldbuilding questions

The same 00N chapter indicated that Tieren runs on electrical power. There you go. Confirmation right there. I've been wondering for years myself. The question that should be asked is "What is used to produce the electricity?" Enacts collect power to a battery/capacitor from the Solar Energy System...

Re: Macross poised to finally see international release?

I find that a bit funny because when Ecole du Ciel was being published by Tokyopop, every issue had "From Mikimota, the creator of Macross" stamped on the front. Who's Mikimota? That's actually allowed since you're promoting the person, not the merchandise. Look at posters for Avatar . It literally...

Harmony Gold is in the real estate business in California, which is probably where the vast majority of their revenue comes from. Okay, this needs to be cleared up a bit.

Re: Macross poised to finally see international release?

I thought the issue was that back in the day, multiple Japanese companies thought they had the rights to Macross and licensed it out to different American companies, which created a conflict when everyone tried to make use of their licenses. For example, FASA including several Macross mecha in Batt...
