Re: What's Your Current Anime? Mk III

Currently in the middle of both Gundam 0083 and Pailsen Files, and recently finished Roots of Ambition. I can say right away that, even though my first Google search for VOTOMS ruined the surprise at the end, and I've started watching in chronological order, that I love VOTOMS. I LOVE IT! I want my ...

Re: The Official Gundam Unicorn Mecha Thread Mk II

I knew that Unicorn was made for hardcore Gundam fans who would actually know every single mobile suit in the mecha porn scenes, but this is ridiculous. Still, good find. I will say that the vehicle in Unicorn does have plenty of aesthetic differences, but it does look similar enough. I could easily...

Re: Some Questions on OYW Stuff

OKay then. I was just wondering what Operation Clarion was because I had a rather paranoid idea that it might be something that could potentially derail my entire story, but it thankfully isn't.

Operation Clarion?

Dare I ask what happened in Operation Clarion?

Re: The Official Gundam Unicorn Mecha Thread Mk II

Maybe your'e right......I haven't seen a lot of footage of the Doven-Wolf, but I do like its wire-arm beam gun things. Reminds me very much of the Zeong.

Re: Some Questions on OYW Stuff

Concerning the Trafalgar class: I don't think it likely that these would be converted to carry mobile suits. As we've seen over the years, you can carry mobile suits just about anywhere - packed into Columbus transports, stuffed into the cargo holds of Magellans and Salamises, strapped to the outsi...

MSM-03-1 Prototype Gogg: It seems this unit did saw limited mass production while the standard Gogg's design was being finished.

Re: Some Questions on OYW Stuff

Regarding the Zaku Cannon, and also the Dom Cannon, we discussed some aspects in this thread: http://www.mechatalk.net/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=14121&start=20 Basically, it seems that several different sets of equipment were made for these units. The 0081 version actually replaces the sections that con...

The Agg? The Agg? I hate you all already. I'm not sure what you all have to do with the freaking Agg being on this poll but hating you all seems like as reasonable a response as any other. While the choice to put that thing on the list is pretty weird, its not the worst mobile suit I've ever seen. ...

Re: Some Questions on OYW Stuff

On the other hand, it could actually turn out to be a solid idea if the Zeons in your story had salvaged material from a Zaku II Kai and a Rick Dom II that had been too badly damaged to be rebuilt in their entirety. They're obviously not using that material for anything else, and everything in the ...

Re: Zeon Prototypes of the OYW

Are you counting ALL prototypes, or just ones that get destroyed? All of them, eventually. It just happens to be that all the prototypes that we see onscreen are eventually destroyed. Most of Zeon's MAs, like the Big Zam and Elmeth, were actually pretty damn effective until a jedi with a giant robo...

Re: Some Questions on OYW Stuff

How would it be null and void? I mean, the series ignores actual space movement (recoil is identical to any other sort of thrust) so either it would have the same effect as on Earth, or you actually care about the lack of friction and gravity in space, which means it would send the thing into a hea...

Re: Some Questions on OYW Stuff

I wouldn't think that the Zeeks would want to waste a Zaku II Kai or Rick Dom II just to create an ugly mistake. Those two suits weren't common, and had exemplary performance. If the Hobgoblin does show up, it will certainly be a unique, one-of-a-kind unit probably built by the same desperate soul w...

Re: Some Questions on OYW Stuff

Anyway, your story sounds interesting with all the talk of a "desperate loony" building a space-use Z-Cannon and the Federation fielding something like a jury rigged carrier. It sounds like it's true to the spirit of The One Year War. I'm curious to see what the Feds and Zeeks throw at each other. ...

Zeon Prototypes of the OYW: MSV, MSV-R, M-MSV, and MSX added

Inspired by a brief conversation on this exact thread, I feel (perhaps wrongfully) compelled to create a comprehensive list of every single failed Zeon prototype to ever exist in the OYW, explicitly for the lulz. Laugh and point your fingers at these god-forsaken failures of mobile warfare. Ha ha ha...

Re: Some Questions on OYW Stuff

Oh backstory and history, you've struck my creative spirit yet again. Oh well. If nobody is going to have heart palpitations over a Zaku Cannon in SPACE, then perhaps a Trafalgar-class quickly modified to carry and launch mobile suits wouldn't be so far fetched. Heck, they carried mobile suits on Sa...

Re: Some Questions on OYW Stuff
