Re: PMX-000 Messala strange specs

On The-O verniers: In other media (like Z Gundam novel or Kondo's manga adaption) the vernier holes are beam guns. Maybe it was in the original intentions of the designers but it didn't get shown in the series (like what happened to most G-Reco's mobile suits) and so they got retconned as verniers.

Re: PMX-000 Messala strange specs

I knew that the Messala was an handmade TMA built by Scirocco (PMX-000 after all), is this new info or have I been deceived? From MS Encyclopedia translated by Mark: A transformable mobile armor developed by Paptimus Scirocco aboard the Jupitris. It is equipped with powerful thrusters in order to re...

Re: PMX-000 Messala strange specs

Well from the show we know that the Messala is powerful enough to deploy solo to fight the Aeug fleet but for some reason Scirocco discards it (after a training duel with Jerid and Mouar) and gives it first to Sarah, who gets hit by Fa (from all people) and Reccoa. It disappears (probably because it...

Re: Mayfly of Space 2 Picture Drama announced

What if the name means that this is the "rick" version of a never mentioned Prototype Dom II? I imagine that Delaz's machine is a space use variant that got developed in the Rick Dom II that we know and love while the standard Prototype Dom II were converted in tropical types for use in combat. Othe...

Re: Lasers, focusing lenses, and design

But I didn't said it's a bad thing to quote unofficial informations, but if you do so then you can't ignore what unofficial info you don't like and endorse what seems to confirm your fantastical suggestions (which have little to contribute to the thread to begin with).

Re: Lasers, focusing lenses, and design

The Juagg also has 4 beam guns on the front an can fire spread beams from them. But where it does that? In unicorn they are just normal mpcs. And even then I said that Zock "wouldn't need'' a spread function not that it ''doesn't have'' it. We both don't know that and we can't assume looking at the...

Re: Lasers, focusing lenses, and design

But why should it ever use a spread mode if it already has 4 rapid fire guns per side plus an aa one? It's not like they are consistent at all for the other acquatics (most of the time the Z'Goks mpcs fires focused beams but in Gihren's Greed it fires like a machine gun, the Gogg alternates between ...

Re: Lasers, focusing lenses, and design

The Z'od-iacok has i-field generators for this very purpose but the Zock has never been described to be equipped in a similiar way. They are just mpcs that looks strange.

Re: Lasers, focusing lenses, and design

Perhaps rather than spreading beams, the Zock's weapons are meant to combine 4 small beams into a larger one. But this is just a suggestion based on nothing. In the anime the Zock alternates the fire between the guns while the Seravee combines its beams thanks to a GN Field, which the Zock obviousl...

Re: About weight, thrust, payloads and other oddities...

One should also consider that on many mobile suits the thrusters aren't pointed in the same direction so a mobile armor or trasformable mobile suit should still be faster even with less gs of thrust.

Re: About weight, thrust, payloads and other oddities...

It's more like that while newer machines has extra thrusters which are seldom used, the RX-78-2 has just the barebones equipment.

Is the chobam a thing that increase the payload of the alex???
The rear waist armor has extra thrusters, maybe this is the cause of the increase in payload.

Re: MS Catalog

I just noticed that in the final battle of CCA the Gyunei's Jagd Doga seems to fire two rapid-fire weapons, like vulcans or machine cannons. The view is from the cockpit so the specific location of those weapons is difficult to pinpoint. It can be seen in this video at 3:11 https://youtu.be/svsuitgT...

Re: Dom Evolution?

I will not go off-topic further, no one of us is right, it just a matter of different opinions, I'm just reporting that the "Dom Funf" in the new picture drama is called Rick Dom II Custom (Delaz Machine) as for latest magazine scans. Maybe they are retconning the Funf and so the Tropen are just mod...

Re: 120mm Zaku Machine Gun VS Luna Titanium Alloy & GM Shiel

A bit unrelated but the inconsistency it's present in the Hizack's Zaku Machine Gun Kai too. When Jerid fires at the capsules that contains Kamille's parents the ammo couldn't damage the MkII's fingers (weak spots armored with old titanium). Later, during the night battle at Hong Kong, a passing Hiz...

Re: Dom Evolution?

The problem is that while there might be little info on the MS-09F Dom Funf, the MS-09F/trop is a well known and accepted official MS. More importantly, it seems that the upcoming Mayfly of Space 2 picture drama will finally show the MS-09F in action, further cementing its position as the official ...

Re: Dom Evolution?

If we talk about model numbers then the Act Zaku is justified because it's MS-11 and not a 06. I believe the Dowas Desert had the 09F designation before it was given to the Funf. Regarding the variants gerarchy, well, the "official" variants aren't less obscure than some of the "obscure" ones. The D...

Re: Dom Evolution?

I did forgot about the Prototype Dom line... Still the question is not easy to answer because the Dom Funf is stated to be the last Dom type before the end of the war but this conflicts with other models like the Pezun Dowadge (which should be a pretty late war MS) and the Dowas (and it's tropical v...

Re: Dom Evolution?

Maybe there isn't a line of development as every variant seem to have a different goal. The Rick Dom II is the UMP version of the Rick Dom, designed to have common parts and cockpit with other machines like the Zaku FZ and Gelgoog J. It seems to be operable in both space and atmosphere but the green...
