There is already a thread on this image, it's a lineart which depicts the standard Dom for a particular toy line (I forgot which one)

Re: The Official Gundam Unicorn Mecha Thread Mk IV

The Cannongan isn't a mini MS, it's based on the Jegan and the specs claims it's 20m tall

Re: Gundam 0083 Rebellion manga

Now that I think about it this scenario surely makes the feds look less like incompetents: not being able to shot down two big and slow ms who jumps just in front of your AA guns its worse than being attacked by an improbable conglomeration of old MAs who no one knew about.

Who cares if a manga adaptation features some crazy ma that doesn't make much sense storywise? I think that's a cool idea

Re: Hovering and Water

In Mobile Suit Gundam: The Ace Pilot for Gamecube the Doms became much slower when on water, even more than regular walking mobile suits. Maybe they aren't powerful enough to hover on water

Re: Convincing mecha technical data

Well I could say that is stranger that there are people who nitpick about people who nitpick about made-up numbers of a work of fiction.

We are in a forum about mecha, it would be strange without nitpicking on mecha, wouldn't it?

Re: Convincing mecha technical data

It's true that people nitpick with numbers but it's not like the official specs are that clarifying so I tought there must be alternative ways. Maybe to convey a mech power one could use an extendend set of parameters plus a set of points (like the Ability points in G or Performance ability levels i...

Convincing mecha technical data

There is a widespread complain about most mecha technical data (like weights, power outputs and the like) that it doesn't give a clear idea about what an imaginary war machine can do. In your opinion what is the best way to convey a mecha power through statistics? And wich parameters should it inclu...

Re: Settling an argument: G04 and G05 multi-use or space onl

The ZZ's MS-09G Dowadges were supposed to be MS-10 Pezun Dowadges modified for use on earth (that's why after ZZ the MS-10 was renamed as Pezun, despite there seems to be no connection between the models), because in the first draft Axis would use many earlier mobile suits modified for gound combat ...

Re: Crossbone Vanguard Civil War

It must be so cause we see him use it in the F91. Regarding Zabine he said that in simulations he wins 70% of the time against Kincado. Maybe he was hesitating against Annamarie or she is just a good pilot.

Re: Gundam Villains - Who Can Be Saved?

lol

Imo Scirocco can be saved too... he may think that Lacus is the queen he was searching and defects to player team with Jerid, Mouar, Yazan, Sarah and Reccoa. It would be pretty cool

Re: Gihren's Greed Mecha Revisited

But is especially strange because the Guncannon II is said to be lighter cause it has no solid cannons and ammo so it mounts a single beam cannon and targeting system. It makes no sense that its precedessor can mount even double beam cannons without problem, and those double cannons having less powe...

Re: Gihren's Greed Mecha Revisited

Yeah but optional piece of equipment =/= standard solid cannons firing beams. It looks more like an error or they wanted it to fire beams for game reasons

Re: Gihren's Greed Mecha Revisited

Very cool finds. Related to this, I played Giren no Yabou - Axis no Kyoui and here Guncannon Heavyarms has beam cannons (it makes no sense, Guncannon II should be the upgrade that uses the beam cannon, Heavyarms has standard cannons with extra ammo) plus Heavy Gundam's cannon is a beam one (dunno he...

Re: Discarded MS of Ace Pilots

He did fine but he could do better, IMO. If the Custom is crearly a better machine why not give it to him? I think this is never explained (maybe Woolf doesn't purchase MSs from Madorna but simply borrow them?).

There is Graham's custom flag later mass produced as Overflag.

Re: Discarded MS of Ace Pilots

If we count AU there is Age with Woolf's Genoace Custom, it goes to storage but it could have been useful for Largan to use (they were in desperate need of MSs after all). This seems to be the fate of a lot of Ace customs, we don't see what's the fate of Delaz's Dom Funf either, some pilot could hav...

Re: Discarded MS of Ace Pilots

Shin Matsunaga's Zaku was destroyed at Solomon by the federation after the battle. In another thread someone mentioned that Garma's Zaku was used by another pilot in Federetion Hooligans manga and in CDA Char and other 2 pilots used Tristar's High Mobility Zakus
