She wasn't. She was in a Mobile Suit too weird and sensitive for a normal human pilot like her to handle.

She was an excellent pilot in a MS designed for mutants.
>>
>>17469866
>>17469922

See >>17469867


She was dumb enough to fall in Bernie's trap
>>
>>17469862
Despite being an academy trained test pilot she had no practical combat experience
>>17469867
The first time we see Bernie, he jobs to a GM and abandons his Zaku
>>
>>17469928

Amuro was such a dumb pilot, walking in to Char's traps.
>>
>>17465836
>>
>>17469928
Oh yes because all good pilots can spot traps from miles away and can deduce exactly what sets them off.

I hate the shitposting monkeys on this board.
>>
>>17469928
I don't think that has any actual bearing on the close combat between mobile suits.
>>
>>17469862
She definitely was not a bad pilot, I'm simulations was able to take down gelgoog's and whatnot but the Alex was built specifically for newtypes and couldn't handle it properly but was still able to use if somewhat effectively. If she had been a newtype things would have been significantly different.
>>
>>17469928
It's been a while since I watched 0080 but isn't the point that she walks into the trap knowingly? She acknowledges it but takes the risk anyway because of the potential dangers posed to civilians. She was acting pragmatically.
>>
>>17469862
Because she didn't have bullshit space magic powers to make up for being such a shitter like the mainline protags.

She was just a test pilot, no actual combat experience.
>>
>>17469986
Yes. She's warned by her superiors at the base that it's an obvious trap, but she chooses to walk into it anyway so she doesn't have to fight in an urban area again.
>>17469993
To even be considered as a test pilot, you need several hundred flight hours. Otherwise your opinion on the machine you're testing is worthless because you don't know what the fuck you're talking about.
>>
>>17469998
>To even be considered as a test pilot, you need several hundred flight hours
Still doesn't mean she has combat experience.
>>
>>17470005
True, the extent of her actual combat experience is never stated, and is probably less than Misha's was. However she definitely has more than Bernie.
>>
Feddies didn't reload the Alex.

No beam rifle from the fed assault ship at the colony.
>>
>>17470008

The Federation wanted to resupply, but Riah wouldn't help them out and they had no further supplies of their own if I recall.
>>
>>17469998
In fact, the biggest skills that test pilots have to demonstrate are a capacity to multitask and ability to keep a cool head if shit goes sideways. When putting their assigned vehicle through its paces, they have to be able to document any oddities on the fly and diagnose potentially dangerous outcomes for which little prior experience may exist to draw upon depending on what is being tested.

It's essentially a career built around flying by the seat of your pants nonstop.
>>
>>17470020
The Zeeks just infiltrated an assault team and mobile suit. To specifically destroy a ace custom mobile suit you were secretly building.

At that point, the secret was busted. So the Alex should have been moved or resupplied. At least salvage the arms from the dead GunCannons and GMs.
>>
>>17470027

The secret was busted, but Riah's response was "What, there's a Federation base here? How'd that happen?", to try and disavow themselves of the entire thing so as to continue placating both sides publicly. The Federation probably did plan on moving the Alex, but that shit takes time and Bernie had attacked again inside a day or something so they were still around and the Alex was low on supplies; which Riah refused to help with because they didn't want to anger Zeon any further I guess.
>>
>>17470038
0080 takes place over the course of about a week or so, so time was a considerable factor. Federation logistics were also likely pushed to the limit dealing with Operation Star One at the same time, so it's likely any sort of transport was not immediately available.

The purpose is to make my peepee hard and it succeeds admirably. It is art that meets its goals.

>>17470100
I get the proportion issue, but what’s wrong with the anatomy?
>>
The Alex was being developed for Amuro after he complained about the Gundam feeling sluggish when his Newtype abilities were emerging. It's not meant for your average ningen.
>>
>>17470271
It's clearly designed for a guy called Alex.
>>
>>17470300
Holy shit you're so funny dude

>>17470102
Calm down anon, how do you not recognize obvious haganef art. Haganef is shit at drawing faces and always give characters humongous breasts, but he is one of the few that frequently draws /m/ characters.

>Test pilot with zero previous battle experience

This thread pops time and time again and people keep complaining about this non-issue. Try to hide your bait better next time
>>
>>17469862
Because she was a test pilot who never saw combat put a mobile suit built for a new type that didnt have any weapons aside from a beam saber and 100 gatling rounds.

The question is how she beat the kampfer when is was piloted by a veteran
>>
>>17470808
Chobham armor, and the Kampfer having tissue paper for armor.
>>
>>17470267
The face is supposed to be Kamille's
>>
>>17469862
Because she's perfect grill. Her beauty and her talent as a pilot are inversely proportional.

Kampfer had no armor, and the team had no idea what the Alex's actual specs or armaments were. He'd already used all his munitions taking out every mobile suit they had at the colony. Shotgun did nothing to the armor, and the armor took the magnetic mine whip.

At that point he had nothing but the saber, and got blindsided by the fact that the Alex had an arm gatling of a high enough caliber to shred the Kampfer to pieces. He likely only expected vulcans and a saber
>>
Sayla seemed to think so.
>>
>>17471212
>you will never pilot the Sayla while Matilda-san watches
bros...
>>
>>17471211
To add to this, straight up fights weren't what Kampfer was built for. That blitz attack it does during the approach, taking out all those mobile suits while on the move, that's what it was built for. In a knockout brawl, the Kampfer is at a serious disadvantage, due to it's lack of staying power. Against something built for exactly that kind of brawling, like a Gundam, the matchup couldn't have been stacked any harder against Kaminsky.

>>17470808
plot armor


plot armor and the main toy they are selling is the answer to most of these shitty gundumb threads
>>
>>17469862
Considering she can do well in the Alex that was design for a living biological weapon of mass destruction.
>>
>>17471331
you dont need newtype skills to use the gundam/alex's LEARNING COMPUTER.
>>
>>17471359

You do, however, need them to use the actual controls effectively.

Wings on my Sleeve is a great book because it goes into exactly that. The author recounts several scenarios where he was asked specifically to either test a machine to the point of failure or to replicate a suspected/known problem deliberately to observe it firsthand.

Test pilots are fucking insane.

No, test pilots are one of the most skilled ones in the army

and thats why she broke her gundam
it doesnt matter how skillful you are once you fall into a trap you are fucking dead unless you are in a gundam and figthing against a shitty pilot aka hamburger
>>
>>17474227

Or Char, who trapped Amuro several times and didn't defeat it regardless. Or not a Char a shitty pilot too?

Considering how poorly the Federation treated the White Base crew in 0079, her Gundam was probably a secret death trap meant to get Amuro killed.

Char is a shitty pilot. Every named character he faced kicked his ass, he has never killed anyone besides grunts
