It also qualifies, with thrust to weight ratio of 15,4.
Also, turn of all of active aero enhancement and you get very pretty brick.

>>17142659
from what i can remember, it's just a means of deploying a tieren from a carrier fairly quickly (as opposed to putting one on a landing craft). it can fly but isn't meant to engage in aerial battles.

Idiot like you are ruining the thread.
Macross is the incarnation of light and aerodynamic.

To fit this thread the mecha must look incapable of flying if it wasn't 50% made of thruster
>>
>>17142380
Honestly the plane form has the weird effect of making the other forms not look capable of flight, just because I know the amount of thrusters required to support an airfoil is going to not be enough to support a mecha. I guess the plane might just have extra though?
>>
>>17144067
Macross thrusters are ridiculously over spec by realistic standards.

If that's what I think it is (a LEV), then it can jump well with the thrusters but that's about it.

Flight is the territory of OFs.

>>17144399
One problem. It can't fly canonically. That Tesla Drive it has is just there to stop it from toppling over from how unbalanced it is.

It can't, it's a slow hovertank siege unit. They had to add the hover skirt because the legs couldn't support the unit's weight under gravity

In case someone was too lazy to google it: it's a one-shot OAV created for mech porn, any semblance of plot is just a pretext.

All MS are propelled by nuclear fusion, the pic is just using nuclear as a buzzword to say "more power".
Also the "orion" you talk of is nuclear pulse engine, literally surfing on wave of explosion it's also a bad idea.

I wonder who thought to themselves that adding wings would make the design appealing or even functional in any way besides holding one fucking weapon?
>>
>>17148565

Nuclear thrusters use the heat generated by a small nuclear reactor to superheat a a propellant, like hydrogen. It's fuel efficient but doesn't produce the higher thrust:weight ratios that conventional chemical rockets do.

The Tierens are one of the better designed MS out there though, that being said it was a prototype that got scrapped in favor for a better working design. It wasn't really more than a testbed
>>
>>17151883
>We introduce the prototype: Ms Ariel Brick. Later in lines are the Aqua Rock and Ground Toaster.
>>
>>17151777
The weapon's on its arm, not the wing.
>>
>>17152091
Good lord(I see it now) that's even worse. I know it's a prototype but really is this the best they could come up with.
>>
>>17152223
Actually, >>17151883 is wrong. The Tieren with the flight gear is not a prototype. In media and literature, it's called the high mobility model, not a prototype. It's not commonly available since it's supposedly expensive.


besides, that gun placement is normal. All of the Tieren models that carry a 200mm cannon have it mounted on the forearm.
>>
>>17152347
>High Mobility model

Hahahahahahahaha!!
>>
>>17153020
I really don't get what you're complaining about. It is more mobile than the standard version.
>>
>>17153034
So far from what I saw it was slightly more mobile than the previous models. Only speed was somehow catching the Gundam before getting diced like the fodder it was.
