Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

Has there been any Macross OST album being released on cassettes? I have just read about the way Japanese anime music came to the States, and it seemed like except a few cassette releases, most albums were released on either vinyls or CDs.

Re: What kind of labour work could an 18m MS do?

RB-79's decommission date is sadly, unknown. They are not supposed to be in the frontlines even in 0083, as they were only deployed for setting up the Solar System II. I guess they still have their cannons as a self defense mechanism but weren't really for any offensive operations. For post war rec...

Could modern roads withstand the weight of MS?

Your average Zaku II is 56.2 tons in dry weight (its max gross weight is 74.5 tons, according to MAHQ). I wonder if the modern highway systems in Western countries could withstand it? The basic Abrams is around 60 tons without weapons and men, and it could run on highways just fine. But then tanks u...

Re: What kind of labour work could an 18m MS do?

I guess it is because they have MMS/JMS contests in UC? (I don't remember if it is JMS or MMS, Karmille is a player) Once you have a major sports, and most people watch that, other sports might not be able to pick up as quickly. Like soccer in the US or American football in other parts of the world...

Re: What kind of labour work could an 18m MS do?

Basically. I also don't see them being able to do anything too sophisticated. They do not have motion capture as a means of control and thus are limited to a set list of skills the computer can handle automatically, so heavy lifting, turning valves/handles(as MSG first ep. Zaku opening the hatch), ...

What kind of labour work could an 18m MS do?

There are a quite a few number of demilitarized MS used in civilian jobs. I wonder what kind of works can these 18 m machines could do, beside construction in space? Wouldn't their size and weight be kind of a big hindrance? And how hard would it be to train a civilian MS pilot? If I remember correc...

Some Future GPX questions.

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

How many war between NUNS and other alien races happened before VF-X? Did Latence just use the Zentrandi to say that there were propably other deathly races humanity should look out for? I guess they were anti-Zentrandi too? Also, the Vajra invasion must have had given their remnants ammunition to u...

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

That is a shame. I always want a Macross spin-off centering on ground combat and the Destroid. It would feel like something from Battletech, or so I imagine.

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

Has the Super Defender from Macross the Ride appeared in animation? The same with other jet fighters in SDF Macross, like the Dragon II? Have they all been decomissioned after the Zentrandi war? Also, I know that there are few reasons to develop the Destroid any further, but do you think one day Sat...

Re: How exactly do internal Phase Shift armor work?

The way I've seen it described, the phase shift armor was only applied to the frame at the joints as a way to improve overall mobility without sacrificing defensive capability. I don't remember SEED MS have joints that are that exposed... How could Phase Shift improve their mobility? Also, didn't t...

How exactly do internal Phase Shift armor work?

So, how exactly does applying Phase Shift technology onto the mobile suit's internal frame (Strike Freedom and Destiny) help with movements? Is it like the UC's magnetic joint coating that it reduces friction?

Talking in other place about why didn't the Federation adopt a mass-production moveable-frame mobile suit (A.K.A. the Jegan) right after Gryps instead of relying on the GM III, some people told me that there was a supplement book which said that the GM III actually had arms incorporated moveable fra...

Re: How advanced should technology be to built spaceships as spacious as in fictions

That's more because rayguns are futuristic than anything... in space, there's no or negligible gravity to act upon an ordinary kinetic projectile so it'll just keep going until it hits something (or several somethings). That's kind of the problem with orbital debris... until the orbit decays, they ...

Oh my, no... the YAL-1A's COIL laser system doesn't have anywhere near that kind of output. It's also so large that there would be no hope of ever getting it onto a space shuttle, it consumes most of the internal space of a modified 747-400F, each of its fuel cells weighs over 2 metric tons, and th...
