Re: Gelgoog Jaeger/Marine question

Found it! An MS Bible publication about the Gelgoog Marine has lineart of where the storage is located. https://img34.pixhost.to/images/151/118682233_13_img012.jpg They are stored in the hip armor, kinda like those of the Kaempfer's. This made me look again at lineart of the Gelgoog Jaeger. Unfortun...

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

The VF-1 Valkyrie's onboard fuel supply of 1,410 liters of hydrogen slush is noted to give the VF-1 a maximum operating time of 700 hours between refuelings in atmospheric service. This is leagues better than current real-life fighters! The only downside I can see is the VF pilot's endurance. I'm a...

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

Someone told me that the Robotech VF-1 has near-unlimited operating time. Do the VFs from the various Macross media have the same ability/feature?

That manga's epilogue did note they reached and colonized Proxima Centauri in UC 0653.
Then they created the Turn X?

Re: The Official Gundam Build Divers Mecha Thread Mk I

Looking at the HG manuals of Grimoire Red Beret and Ogre GN-X, no mention is made of their obvious built-in weapons that they share with their originals (Grimore's head vulcan and wire hook; and GN-XIV's hip vulcans and GN claws). Are they simply non-functional?

Air racing is still active.

"Isamu Special" is used for the model kit.

Re: What Super Robot Wars' SRX unit makes me think of

Just like how previous Banpresto originals are inspired by certain mecha anime, SRX's concept and plot (from Alpha and OG) seem to be inspired primarily by Dancouga (e.g., "real" robots combining into a "super" robot; a mentor who is held in high regard by the female pilot and later becomes the anta...

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

Looking at the lineart of the AIF-7S, I noticed 6 ports on the side bulges (3 on each side) just above the 25mm guns. On the AIF-9V, these are the 20mm guns.

Did the staff forget those weapons or are they something else, like verniers?

Re: Tis a good day for Megaman

Also, Mega Man has made it into Super Robot Wars, although it's a tower defense style game (X-Omega).

Re: The medical downsides to being a Newtype

I'm more curious that you become concern about this issue by reading X-Men of all thing... In the mainstream continuity, the US government have certain Weapon Plus programs that turn mutants into brainwashed super-soldiers in preparation for a Mutant-Human war. In an alternate dystopic timeline, so...

Re: Does the destiny silhouette use Voiture Lumiere System?

Ignore my previous post. Had a brain fart and didn't notice the "silhouette" part.

In a G Generation game, the Destiny Impulse Gundam is shown having the Wings of Light (for the Destiny Gundam, this is generated by its Voiture Lumiere system). Its canonicity is debatable, though.

Re: Does the destiny silhouette use Voiture Lumiere System?

I think the Master Grade kit manual reveals that it has the Voiture Lumiere system. The "new propulsion system" thing may be its Voiture Lumiere system working in conjunction with its Mirage Colloid system. I may be wrong, though.

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

About the VB-6:

1) Can it fire its railguns in shuttle and battroid mode?
2) A Macross RPG site, Sketchley's Translations, lists it as having grenade crushers. Exactly where are they located?

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

When were the rollout years for the following: VF-9, VF-14, VA-3, VA-14, VB-6, Neo Glaug, and the Variable Glaug?

Do the Neo Glaug and Variable Glaug have model numbers / vehicle designations?

Does the Neo Glaug have a battroid mode?

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

Thanks for the response, Seto Kaiba.

What mainly bothers me about the VF-5000 and VF-11 is that, aside from their gunpods, they have no other forward-firing ballistic or energy weapon in fighter mode.

What are the advantages of the VF-25 over the VF-19 and VF-22?

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

Is there a reason why the VF-11 seem like a downgrade weapon-wise compared to the older VF-4 and VF-5000?

Does the C model of the VF-11, from Macross 7, have internal missile launchers?

Apparently the J-Wiki cites the Gundam Seed Mechanics and World sourcebook but I'm iffy and wanted to get a little confirmation if I could.
