Why was she such a shit pilot?
She wasn't. She was in a Mobile Suit too weird and sensitive for a normal human pilot like her to handle.
>>17469862Bernie should have won.
ARE YOU TALKING SHIT ABOUT MY WAIFU, MOTHERFUCKER?
>>17469862She was an excellent pilot in a MS designed for mutants.
>>17469866>>17469922See >>17469867She was dumb enough to fall in Bernie's trap
>>17469862Despite being an academy trained test pilot she had no practical combat experience>>17469867The first time we see Bernie, he jobs to a GM and abandons his Zaku
>>17469928Amuro was such a dumb pilot, walking in to Char's traps.
>>17469928Oh 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.
>>17469928I don't think that has any actual bearing on the close combat between mobile suits.
>>17469862She 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.
>>17469928It'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.
>>17469862Because she didn't have bullshit space magic powers to make up for being such a shitter like the mainline protags.
>>17469862She was just a test pilot, no actual combat experience.
>>17469986Yes. 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.>>17469993To 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 hoursStill doesn't mean she has combat experience.
>>17470005True, 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.
>>17470008The Federation wanted to resupply, but Riah wouldn't help them out and they had no further supplies of their own if I recall.
>>17469998In 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.
>>17470020The 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.
>>17470027The 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.
>>174700380080 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.
>>17469993>That anatomy>Those proportions Do you enjoy consuming shit or are you incapable of recognizing bad art?
>>17470100Chris has like 5 fanart images anon.
>>17470102Doesn't mean you have to post them, idiot
>>17470113Maybe I just wanted to provoke you anon.
>>17469862because hot and skilled female pilots were already taken
>>17470100The purpose is to make my peepee hard and it succeeds admirably. It is art that meets its goals.
>>17470100I 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.
>>17470271It's clearly designed for a guy called Alex.
>>17470300Holy shit you're so funny dude
>>17470102Calm 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.
>>17469862>Test pilot with zero previous battle experience>Piloting a machine not fit for oldtype usage>Bernie having tons of tatical advantage and time for preparationThis thread pops time and time again and people keep complaining about this non-issue. Try to hide your bait better next time
>>17469862Because 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
>>17470808Chobham armor, and the Kampfer having tissue paper for armor.
>>17470267The face is supposed to be Kamille's
>>17469862Because she's perfect grill. Her beauty and her talent as a pilot are inversely proportional.
>>17470808Kampfer 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 watchesbros...
>>17471211To 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.
>>17470808plot armorplot armor and the main toy they are selling is the answer to most of these shitty gundumb threads
>>17469862Considering she can do well in the Alex that was design for a living biological weapon of mass destruction.
>>17471331you dont need newtype skills to use the gundam/alex's LEARNING COMPUTER.
>>17471359You do, however, need them to use the actual controls effectively.
I have more than 5 pictures. Just saying.
>>17470026Wings 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.
>>17471572>leggings>underneath actual pantsFOR WHAT PURPOSE?
>>17473518Those aren't leggings, dude.
>>17469862test pilot with no combat knowledge other than VR training.
>>17469862No, test pilots are one of the most skilled ones in the army>>17469986>She acknowledges it but takes the risk anyway because of the potential dangers posed to civiliansand thats why she broke her gundamit 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
>>17474227Or Char, who trapped Amuro several times and didn't defeat it regardless. Or not a Char a shitty pilot too?
>>17474227>it doesnt matter how skillful you are once you fall into a trap you are fucking dead
>>17474227Yeah, sure man, let's give her shit for avoiding civilian casualties.
>>17469862Considering how poorly the Federation treated the White Base crew in 0079, her Gundam was probably a secret death trap meant to get Amuro killed.
>>17474241Char is a shitty pilot. Every named character he faced kicked his ass, he has never killed anyone besides grunts
>>17473725>google leggings stockings>similar images comes up
>>17475730Those are pantyhose dude, they're pretty different.Stop being a faggot.
>>17473518You're a fucking retard.
>>17475730>Need to google "leggings" to find out what they are.>Still fuck up.Embarrassing.
