Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Anime Thread Mk

Re: multiple chest flyer and leg flyer for impulse but 1 cor

According to the chinese translation of the Destiny Impulse profile, the suit's multitude of weaponry puts a heavy burden on Impulse's structure, which is already quite complex due to the presence of Core Splendor. So it seems the decision to omit the Core splendor from Destiny is due to structural...

Re: multiple chest flyer and leg flyer for impulse but 1 cor

A one off development is not consistency with the story's settings. I have repeated quite a lot of times, if it is consistence, they would have built a lot more combining units and make it more prominent. A one-off development, which we don't really know if it is or if it isn't, does not show incon...

Re: multiple chest flyer and leg flyer for impulse but 1 cor

You based your arguments on a "Things will work out" way, I based mine on "Situations that happened half of the time in battle that your methods will not work out or is at least worse than normal. It has nothing to do with whether or not things will work out, but about allowing the story to have it...

Re: multiple chest flyer and leg flyer for impulse but 1 cor

I thought his argument for the machine has always been about its launch sequence and how this is irrational, not the machine itself being able to split apart for whatever reason. I think it started out as being about the launch pad but quickly turned into the whole combining system. You still get m...

Re: pilots talking with each other including their enemies?

which i find weird. shouldn't Athrun know the Freedom's frequency by heart? even if Kira and co did change it over the 2 years. surely, they must have kept in contact? (then again, he was surprised to see Kira on the battlefield again.) :? Well, even Kira didn't know that the Freedom survived. And ...

Re: multiple chest flyer and leg flyer for impulse but 1 cor

1) is when he claimed that the flyers can automatically dodge attacks. Even if that's true, and I'm not saying that it is, I don't see how that would suggest anything close to a 20-year advancement in technology. If you don't have this kind of ability, the total surface area of the core+flyers is l...

Re: multiple chest flyer and leg flyer for impulse but 1 cor

Random points in battle would suggest otherwise as no one seemed to wait for an appropriate opening. It was always "get me this part ASAP". Do you mind pointing out when a combining was done without the pilot doing something about any enemy nearby or without catching the enemy by surprise? On the c...

Re: multiple chest flyer and leg flyer for impulse but 1 cor

Hey, my combining MS design is so great that I need to add more abilities for it to survive combat, here's the list: 1) 20 years advance technology against my enemy's arsenal 2) super human pilot 3) enemies are rendered idiots by seeing the MS 4) extra luck for facing an enemy that didn't want to k...

Re: multiple chest flyer and leg flyer for impulse but 1 cor

Not really. In Victory Gundam Uso had frequent problems with combining under fire and more than once had a component shot down before he could dock. IIRC, this once resulted in him having to fight a pitched battle on his own without the arms of his Gundam and only a pair of beam rifles mounted on h...

Re: multiple chest flyer and leg flyer for impulse but 1 cor

One links to the other, doesn't it? If combining isn't reasonable, then giving it a separate launch pad really isn't that useful. The justification is just not enough to get a separate launch pad to give you a weaker MS. It would possibly make a little more sense for the Earth Alliance side to have...

Re: multiple chest flyer and leg flyer for impulse but 1 cor

You are thinking more in lines of "How do we do with those parts" instead of "If it is rational of not". An MS without the combination system will be more powerful than an MS with the combination system, given that you build them with same tech and same budget. Ok, now I think I understand. You're ...

Re: multiple chest flyer and leg flyer for impulse but 1 cor

At the same time you have to solve the latter before talking about the first becomes useful. Of course, and both are answered. If the hand of the MS got shot down, it is still an MS just without the arm, it can still fight. If it is the top part, do you combine as an MS and fight or do you wait for...

Re: multiple chest flyer and leg flyer for impulse but 1 cor

You are thinking more in lines of "How do we do with those parts" instead of "If it is rational of not". Those are not mutually exclusive questions. Hardly. You still need that much space for all the components, and you cannot really pack them as tight as an MS. The space around each part is wasted...

Re: multiple chest flyer and leg flyer for impulse but 1 cor

Of course not, you can always put them together after maintenance. After you are sure the top and bottom part works, fit them onto the core and form the whole MS. That way you can also test if the connection works or not. Makes much more sense that way. If you really want to make use a a smaller la...

Re: multiple chest flyer and leg flyer for impulse but 1 cor

The main problem of this is the launch pad of impulse is a waste of space. It might be smaller than the regular MS launch pad, but you need to launch 3~4 units before you have a full strength fighting MS. So even if it launch each unit at 2X the speed, you can still launch 2 MS from a regular launc...

Re: pilots talking with each other including their enemies?

However we also have one example in SEED where Athrun is trying to find a Radio Channel to talk to the Strike during one of the early episodes which the two friends continue to use over the course of the series till they get their new Gundams in the second half of the series. However as far as I am...

Re: multiple chest flyer and leg flyer for impulse but 1 cor

Essentially, only one Impulse unit was assigned to the Minerva, which is represented by one core unit and however many chest and leg flyers are deemed necessary to support that single core unit in a typical deployment. Assigning more core units to Minerva would necessitate adding more flyer units, w...

Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Anime Thread Mk

So, I suppose the mobile suits don't have air conditioner, or Mars is just really hot in general. And the girls seem younger than the boys, although most of them seem young regardless.
