Re: AEUG Early MS?

Thanks MythSearcher, that's a pretty good response. As far as the GM II/GM Custom info goes... I get that, but the GM II does have a beam rifle and presumably a few years tech advantage on the GM Custom. Is that enough to put them on equal footing, or is it fair to infer that the GM Custom's purpose...

AEUG Early MS?

With the inclusion of the GM Cannon II and GM Custom in the AEUG's forces as of the Zeta movies, I've become curious about the AEUG's MS roster, what sort of options they had and how good they were. Would people more familiar with the underlying details be able to offer thoughts on the topic, bearin...

Re: Doven Wolf Weaponry Redundant?

This has been really interesting. I knew the Doven Wolf packed in a lot of features, but some of these are new to me! The idea that the beam sabers can be rear-firing beam cannons in storage, in particular, makes me go "neat!" That Evolve episode also puts the beam rifle in better context; I had pre...

Re: Doven Wolf Weaponry Redundant?

Jeff: That's a really good point. I had forgotten about that. Or rather, I only limited its advantages to 'can control Incoms.' The idea that the system could help aim multiple other weapons at the same time didn't even cross my mind. Pretty interesting! Inuyasha: ...Wow, that IS a pretty big dispar...

Re: Doven Wolf Weaponry Redundant?

So basically 'back-up weapons and a way to fire three shots at once instead of just one, if you're so inclined to spend the extra energy'? I can see that making sense. Just feels weird to have cannons be the backup to the rifle (or not at all, if we go by your 'numbers don't matter' notion... which ...

Doven Wolf Weaponry Redundant?

Sadly, this is one case where I can't easily watch ZZ Gundam to find out since Daisuki's episodes for it were yanked a few weeks back... so I'm hoping someone can provide some insight on this. Before I ask my question, the specs in question can be found at http://www.mahq.net/mecha/gundam/zz/amx-014...

Re: [UC Gundam] Performance Between Eras

If they do, nothing in the animated versions of Char's Counterattack and Gundam Unicorn seems to state this outright. In absence of evidence to prove Anaheim begins contract production of Dreissen, Zaku III, Doven Wolf, etc... it is probably best to presume they don't, or if they do it's in incredib...

Re: [UC Gundam] Performance Between Eras

That's an interesting thought. I can kind of see Char or Full Frontal looking at their pilots, looking at the budget available for new machines, and deciding: "You know what? You guys don't need eighteen million guns like the Doven Wolf has. You're going to get by with one gun plus some disposable o...

[UC Gundam] Performance Between Eras

Recently I have been both watching ZZ Gundam (fairly early in) and reading through several excellent threads here on MS specs (For those curious, a search for 'MS technical data' in this thread - http://www.mechatalk.net/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=16078 - brings up the posts in question)... and am left wi...

Re: Rick Dias II Weapons?

Huh. Kind of amazing how disinformation can spread like that. I do have one last tiny question; what about the power ratings on the mega beam gun? The specs (are those made up too?) rate it at 4.8 MW; would I be right in guessing that's per barrel? If it's 4.8 total, that's only a minor step up from...

Re: Rick Dias II Weapons?

Whoa. That's a lot of neat info there. Thanks! I think this pretty well addresses all my questions. This does however paint a very bad picture of the AEUG's money management from late 0087 onward. They went to the trouble of having the Rick Dias II developed, possibly the Rick Dias S and Super Dias ...

Re: Rick Dias II Weapons?

I'm just kind of headscratching on the loadout, though. Why would they go from something whose gimmick was 'give up a shield in favor of more weapons, including a powerful bazooka', to... having just two weapons? Even if a mega beam gun is a pretty good weapon, it seems like it ought to have somethi...

Re: Rick Dias II Weapons?

Wow, that's... pretty limited, I'd think they'd give it more since it doesn't carry a shield. So it seems that Gundam Wikia users were making stuff up with no basis for this? Well at least now I know. You mean to tell me you played through parts of both of those games to check this out, though? Than...

Re: Rick Dias II Weapons?

That certainly sounds reasonable. Thank you for offering your thoughts, Evex! I guess at this point the only other sources that could really help narrow this down further would be the G Generation and/or Giren's games if they produce an explicit weapon list. That may be a case of 'you have fun resea...

Rick Dias II Weapons?

Sorry to post a topic on a fairly vague thing, but I'm seeing contradictory info out there and trying to figure out what's most likely to be correct. I'd like to ask about the MSA-099-2 Rick Dias II as seen in Z-MSV and a few video games. MAHQ Link: http://www.mahq.net/mecha/gundam/z-msv/msa-099-2.h...

Re: Zaku II MS-06S and MS-06R-1A Performance (UC Gundam, OYW

Interesting in hindsight, anime production issues aside, that Char did not get an R1-A of his own then.

This is some really nice info. Thank you!
