The terminus b303's space ability

Post by Xanadu » Sat Jul 19, 2008 6:02 pm

There have been scenes with the Terminus b303 devil fish fighting in space. Is this only able to be done by the devil fish there's been nothing mentioned about other lfo's being able to do this but I cant really see any reason why they couldn't.

Well, when you consider the fact that all LFOs depend on trapar waves for flight, and that there are no trapars in space...

The Devilfish is the exception to the rule, since in addition to its standard lifting gear, it is also equipped with rocket engines (hence the giant humpback). That is the reason why it can operate in space.

But all the LFO's have engines and since there's no gravity/whatever in space I dont see why the engine size would make a difference.

Eh, didn't mean engines. The Devilfish has rocket thrusters, not engines, and is (to my knowledge) the only LFO/KLF with them. My bad.

Which Nirvash? The first two, as far as I can tell, both use trapars. Not sure about Spec 03 though...

I watched the first episode again today and the Spec 1 had some kind of Rocket booster.

yeah it uses them a few times to get in the air before getting on a trapar stream

Pretty much all LFOs have conventional thrusters-hell, the PS2 games initially center around ground boosting combat, with ref-boards only even really introduced on 505s and Mon-Soonos in the last levels of the first one. (whether that entirely jives with Nirvash's history in later TV episodes, I forget)

Thing is, most only have a couple pointing down from behind their cockpits, whereas Devilfish's thrust capabilities are somewhat more comprehensive.

You would think that the LFO's would have an auxillary thrust system in case of some catastrophic malfunction with the ref board caused them to plummet 10,000 feet to the ground. The LFO's have to be pretty expensive, so you would want some sort of backup system. Those rockets are probably not enought to substitute for the ref board, but they are necessary.

The Boosters, Double as the wheel for the rear Tires on an LFO and KLF, and yes, I guess they could be used in an emergency, to slow their desent, but from ten thousand feet, they would expend their fuel for the boosters, which are used to give you an extra burst of speed, but the LFO and KLF Refboards have a device inside which focuses the trapar and expells it out the back, except if you get a wave of trapar.

Anyway the B303 has the added Rocket Thrust and equipment for space flight, even though it's injuring the pilot.
