Has there ever been a mobile suit with ball as a cockpit? Like imagine a GM but there's just a fucking ball as its torso.

The core of the Atlas' chest is a scaled down Ball. Otherwise not really, since the Ball is rather large.
>>
>>20072173

A few of the units in G-Reco have spherical stomach sections that can act as emergency escape pods. They're not actually RB-79 Balls, but they're spherical pods regardless. The Grimoire, Jahanamm, Montero and Neodu use them I think. There might be others I'm forgetting too.
>>
>>20072166
Well, that's more like the opposite if anything, ha.

>>20072173
Yeah, I was really mostly wondering if a mobile suit had even been developed around a Ball. I know of that one thing from Build Divers (the Polypodball or something?) but that's about it.

Didn't one of the designers for Gundam put forth that a Ball is actually better than a mobile suit statistically?

Do people pilot the balls used by the GM Juggler or are they like a type of incom?
>>
>>20093552
You're probably thinking of Katoki espousing their values, yes. Balls have a medley of good traits but we never really get to see them benefit or do well too often.

Looks like someone made a bunch of Ball renders for a video game.
>>20093552
It's got all it's mass in one spot and decent propulsion so yeah it can be pretty maneuverable, it uses a special kind of pellet propellant as I recall but had extremely low operational time as a result. Also, aside from the Ball Type-K they aren't resilient at all.
>>
>>20101078
The Type F as shown in >>20095349 was actually tougher and more maneuverable compared to vanilla Balls, to the point it was actually well-liked by pilots.

I prefer Katoki's design of ball than the anime design.
White is also a much better color than that shitty blue.

Unmanned anything seems like it'd be a bad idea in any setting where jamming is so strong that it's practically a plot device.

Ball good. Ball most stable shape. Ball has the smallest surface area of all surfaces that enclose a given volume, and it encloses the largest volume among all closed surfaces with a given surface area.
