Why are they always wasting missilesif they are going to dock the implus right away anyway?
>>19543107Why don't they just load a few impulses on the ship instead of two useless Zakus.
>>19543107>>19543111Why do they keep giving Lunamaria the Gunner pack when she can't hit anything for shit
>>19543183She's actually pretty competent in close quarters too.
>>19543107Gotta use that stock footage to fill up the episode runtimes as much as possible.>>19543183>>19543190Ironically, Gunner Zaku makes for a brilliant partner for the Destiny Gundam in EXVS.
>>19543111They only made 1 Core Splendor despite making crap tons of Sillhouette packs and Chest/Leg Flyers for some reason
>>19543107If the missile cartridge is made with gundam magic alloy, dropping it wont even put a dent on it and they can recover it later.Still pretty senseless to me though.
>>19543107What is even the point of gaia? Most senseless gundam of them all
How does this thing steer left/right without vertical control surfaces?
>>19543107Look, the Minerva is already a glorified accessory to the Impulse as is what with all the exclusive launch infrastructure dedicated to a single machine, clearly space money is no object for it and it can shed as many rocket pods as it goddamn feels like shedding. I know Gundam exists as a plastic model vehicle, but Minerva, and Archangel before it, smacks of a particular To Sell Toys action figure play set mentality I would sooner associate with GI Joe or something, like every shot of them needs this fine print "batteries sold separately" disclaimer.
>>19543720SEED is pretty much GI Joe when you think about.Every ranged weapons fire beams/lasersLots of acronymsWacky doomsday devices
>>19543441It's basically a parody of Victory. Difference is they actually ended up making more victory core fighters
>>19543107are those missiles or gun pods?
>>19544508Maybe they're balancers? Or thrusters?
Y'know people shit on the Destiny for being a downgrade from the Impulse for no longer being a modular transformer but everything about the Impulse is fucking stupid.The Minerva can use only one Impulse because of a propertiary launcher. The splendor is never used by itself, when Shinn goes out to deliver Stella to the EA he goes out in the whole Impulse instead of sneaking out in just the splendor. You'd think the Impulse would use Victory-esque limb swapping tricks, but it happens ONCE and only ONCE in the whole show. And then the Impulse gets discarded in favor of the Destiny never to have this trick utilized again.It's almost as if the Impulse's whole gimmick was an afterthought.
>>19544508I thought its one of those missile that shoot smaller missiles
>>19544538to be fair, the open-get trick can be pretty expensive if shinn does it every time (that and there's no guarantee that Kira will fall for it a second time).
>>19544538>The splendor is never used by itself,There's exactly one episode where it's used for a hit and run initial strike against some mobile armor camped out in a mountain or some shit, as I recall.
>>19543520gee I wonder
>>19544538I mean the whole minerva support gimmick would at least make sense if they actually carry few set of impulsesor if they give few mass-produce impulse after Shin move on to Destiny later in the season
>>19544546Yeah I checked it out and that's what they are. So they're fixed armaments and you wouldn't launch an unarmed vehicle into a conflict zone even if you were going to dock it into a different weapons platform because you don't know what the fuck is going to happen in a battle
