Post flying bricks
this and the South Sea Alliance variant in Thunderbolt
everything in Robotech
>>17142371Bitch please. Get on my level, zeek.
>>17142380The YF-19 is beautiful, shut your fucking mouth
>>17142420Might as well go all the way
>>17142465It also qualifies, with thrust to weight ratio of 15,4.Also, turn of all of active aero enhancement and you get very pretty brick.
>>17142355How does that wing even work?
>>17142659from 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.
>>17142659As Woody said "It's not flying but floating in style"
>>17142683Ok this is epic
>>17142420>>17142570In space anything can "fly"
>>17142659It doesn't fly very well and mostly relies on thrust, gets canned in favor of the high mob. type b which uses Dom style hovering.>>17142355
The original flying brick.
>>17143647>Zeon soldiers see it coming toward them>They go insane trying to comprehend how it can stay afloat, let alone attack them
No matter what world it's in, the F-4 Phantom is the triumph of thrust over aerodynamics;
>>17143756Look at it
>>17142380I'm not sure you understand the point of this thread. If its actually got a plane form that looks like an actually goddamn plane for flight, its not a brick.
>>17143653Zeon soldiers had fucking Dopps, they're able to comprehend anything.
>>17143840Dopps didn't have fucking *TREADS*
>>17142659Ground effect maybe?>>17143844Superior Zeon engineering understands tracks are weighed down by gravity.
>>17142355Sorry I couldn't hear you over the sound of all my thrusterhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KUTwGsi-9Uk
>>17142380Idiot 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
>>17142380Honestly 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?
>>17144067Macross thrusters are ridiculously over spec by realistic standards.
Does this one count?
Pretty sure it can fly
>>17143653gotta agree with >>17143840 Zeon know how to make anything fly. We could fill the thread with Zeonic contraption.
>>17144095HG fucking when, Bandai?! They already gave us the Leo. What's with the cocktease?
>>17144105>it can flyThat's fucked up
>>17144115>>17144105More like hover from what I saw
>>17144073If that's a thruster I see at the rear, sure, but it's not clear enough it's supposed to fly or hover.
>>17143756>>17143769Don't forget this fucker.
>>17142380I get what you're saying, the mech mode is built for front line combat so it's going to be armored but this fucker has it worst.
>>17142355the thing carrying it
If all else fails to propel it, use Nukes
Anything Space marine then
>>17144112In awe at the size of this lad. Absolute unit.
>>17144462Doesn't count, that's a space-based platform. Now, if you posted the ridiculous giant sphere it docks to in order to somehow have atmospheric flight, then we're talking.
>>17144554Don't forget that flying green hamburger
>>17144124If 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.>>17144399One 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.
>>17143756>>17144366Earth hates the MiG-31, and thus cancels the effect of gravity under it.
>>17145553Gravity? What's that?
Who need thrusters when you have Minovsky Craft System instead
Two action bases required.
>>17144044>High Mobility hit and run unit>Give it a bipod-mounted machine gun????
>>17144067Macross uses reaction engines, which are nuclear engines on steroids. You could make a literal wall fly head on into the wind with those
>>17144105It 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
>>17144564Thunderbolt somehow managed to make the Dodai look even less aerodynamic.
>>17144554>can catch up to a space shuttle in high altitudeAsshima gaa!
>>17144105>FEED ME FAT PILOTS
>>17144568>orion drive mobile suit
>>17144058so... definitely not something from armored core 4?even the tank bottoms look like they could fly
>>17144107source my dude
>>17149631metal skin panic madox(never seen it, but you can mouse over 'title' if you have 4chan X or a similar plugin)
The suit of Knight of Sidonia are literally one huge thruster with a mech slapped on it. So I think it count.>>17149631>>17149728In 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.>>17148565All 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.
QUEENLY-CHAN IS THICC
>>17151745I want her to twerk on my dick
>>17142355I wonder who thought to themselves that adding wings would make the design appealing or even functional in any way besides holding one fucking weapon?
>>17148565Nuclear 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.
>>17151500Is it fine to like the penultimate?
>>17142355The only reason why I'm excited to see HF's anime adaptation is to see Zeorymer Gundam zipping around the air in non-SD form. I could only replay that fan made OP so many times
>>17151777The 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.
>>17151777The weapon's on its arm, not the wing.
>>17152091Good 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.
>>17152223Actually, >>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 modelHahahahahahahaha!!
>>17153020I really don't get what you're complaining about. It is more mobile than the standard version.
>>17153034So 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.
>>17144073What is this? It's cute
>>17147484This looks fucking ridiculous.
it's also piloted by a mad man
>>17151500Doesn't it get hot with so many layers?
what about the white base,
>>17156126Technically not flying through thrusters at all.It uses minovsky craft system.
>>17156126see >>17156146, it's magical levitation like almost every spaceship.A Zanzibar is more fitting, or any launch of a Federation Salamis-class or Magellan vertical launch.
it can fly but how can it turn?
