Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Mecha Thread Mk III

According to the HG kit for the Grimgarde, the Valkyria Frames were general purpose units that were easy to use and as ease of maintenance that evolved over the years to its descendants Geirail and Graze. While it is true that Gerail and Graze are descendants of the Valkyria Frame, its characterist...

Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Mecha Thread Mk III

I'm kinda hoping they would elaborate more on how the beam works. What are the ammo restrictions on them, etc. From what I have seen, I don't think any of the books talk about the beam weaponry in details. Then again, I skip most of the interview sections... Also surprised at that 80% Gundam Frames...

Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Mecha Thread Mk III

Re: GN Drive Tau particle colors?

That adds it to the various anti beam coating already in the series including the OverFlags' black coating and Cherudim handguns' light blue coating (which seems to act more like a GN Field-layered solid blade in general, but is described in the manuals as using anti beam coating) Minor correction ...

Re: What were the Gundams from Wing, 00, and IBO?

If I remember correctly, so far, none of the Gundam Frames used in the Calamity War are said to be customized to suit their pilots. The differences in look seems to be based on functions or purposes.

Re: The need for prototypes to surpass the mass-production models

The EFGF couldn't wait for the mass production, and decided to use the left over/sub-par/over-produced RX-78 parts to build some MS to meet their needs. They probably built the RGM-79[G] GM Ground type first, and only did the RX-79[G] Gundam Ground Type when the front line feedback asked for better...

Re: Does the destiny silhouette use Voiture Lumiere System?

Heck, during the original SEED Destiny airing (NOT Destiny Remastered), Shinn had to retreat from a battle due to running low on power after using the VL system for an extended period of time. That's just a fan theory, AFAIK, there is no official word on what caused the low power situation, and may...

Re: The date when the Zsaa, the Dreissen, the Capule, and the Galluss first started development?

AMX-107 Bawoo I remember reading where was built using stolen ZZ Gundam project data brought over by defecting AE techs to Axis. The bulk of the Axis MS lines are either updated versions of older Zeon units built with modern tech or reuse tech concepts from AEUG or Titans MS data. Ironically this m...

Re: Effect of beam weapon on electrical system

Well, the electrical shock function of the heat rod is meant to damage internal components and stun the pilot as noted on the archived Gundam Official website. Damaging electrical components is also noted in the capabilities of the prototype heat rod used by the Origin's Prototype Gouf.

Minus whatever rx0 uses for the beam magnum.
The RG model kit manual calls it a magazine with 5 connected E-pacs.
