Re: Realistic Mobile Weapon Classification Systems

Oh don't worry, this next one will even have pictures and ancient Greece too. This, and you have to ask why there's some question as to whether you're trolling the board? Those aren't fan-fictions, those are my projections of how real militaries would classify such vehicles and I decided to use the...

Re: Gelgoog Jaeger/Marine question

That's... a really good question actually. There's some lineart that you can find on the Gundam Wiki page for the suit which looks like it might describe where the Gelgoog Marine stores its sabers but I can't make out what it says.

Re: Realistic Mobile Weapon Classification Systems

The fact that we're having this discussion at all should be a clue that nobody else thinks your classification system is an improvement on what already exists and you're just adding confusing new terms that nobody in-universe uses . Hell, it's not even used in the real world in the way you're doing ...

Re: Realistic Mobile Weapon Classification Systems

The only one causing confusion here is you, by creating a classification system from nothing which even the in-universe organizations don't do, including literally making words up in order to do it. I tried looking up 'Brachiochelate' and the only place on the internet Google could find with it was ...

Re: So...we'll finally see all 26 Mission Packs?

Well, there are exactly twenty-six buttons there so... it is kind of looking that way. They've already got options for all the known packs. Whether they make it through the alphabet or not is another question, given that even headlining Gundams from animated productions have gone without getting kit...

Re: So there’s something that’s been bothering me about Epyon

The latter seems likely, given the evidence in the series. Not only did Quatre manage to reproduce the system from the original plans on his own but Heero and Zechs were both able to create modified versions of the system (the ones that Quatre and Dorothy use for tactical coordination late in the se...

Re: The Official Gundam Build Divers Mecha Thread Mk I

Well, I'm sure loving Ogre's new gunpla, especially that Grungust-inspired head. Looking at the HG manuals of Grimoire Red Beret and Ogre GN-X, no mention is made of their obvious built-in weapons that they share with their originals (Grimore's head vulcan and wire hook; and GN-XIV's hip vulcans and...

Re: About WZC and Epyon's power output

Yeah, before Project V beam weapons were limited to warships because the amount of power required to generate and fuse minovsky particles was outside the reach of a reactor that could be installed on a Mobile Suit. The E-cap changed that, allowing high-performance suits to feasibly carry beam weapon...

Re: What is this weapon on the Avalanche Exia'?

A gimmick variation of the GN Long/Short Blade for the Avalanche (Dash) which takes the place of the original blades. You can see the concept sketch that shows the distinctive diamond-shaped blades joined at the hilts and how it became the 'Dash' version.

Anybody else get a distinct IBO vibe from when Riku went Trans Am and we got those distance shots of the 00 Diver as a streak of red light? And then the wings were sort of V2 meets Trans Am Burst meets Moonlight Butterfly. Looking at how the Big Zam shooting stripes of dark pink beam that cut across...

Re: The Official Gundam Build Divers Mecha Thread Mk I

One assumes that they're still present and just unused (so far at least) since they'd be easy for the modeler to remove if they wanted to get rid of them entirely. Especially the Grimoire's vulcan, a bit of putty and paint and that thing would be gone. If we see the Red Beret's Minimoires using the ...

On the tachi, I don't think that's intended to be a pun but it's hilarious none the less. All the Japanese names for his weapons on the Susanowo were in katakana as well. Similarly, the Gold Frame Amatsu has all its Japanese-themed weapons written in katakana, including its Tsumuha no Tachi. If we a...

HGBD Grimoire Red Beret: Build Divers dares to present a G-Reco MS and make it awesome! Calling it "Red Beret" just so we can't miss the anime reference, the MS is a performer at all ranges. A tilt rotor backpack allows for some extra weapons and flight options for an atmospheric stage. I love the ...

Re: How can OZ mass-produce Virgos with Gundanium Alloy?

Which is probably why the Gundam pilots needed the ZERO system from Wing Zero. In order to fight AI-controlled mobile dolls made out of Gundanium alloy, the pilots needed a system of their very own to counteract them. And at the time, they had Wing Zero and its ZERO system. The ZERO System existed ...

Re: GN Drive Tau particle colors?

If it's the case (and I don't recall either way) then it probably has to do with the later GN[T] Drives being the result of several years additional development.

Re: How can your average Ace earn his special MS?

Another likely criteria would be logistical.
