Is it true that a Leo is statistically better than a Zaku?
>>
>>20748396
Only in certain ways. The Leo can carry more powerful weapons than what a regular Zaku I or II usually has access to, but the Leo's mobility and armor are crap unless it's got an addon backpack and/or if a named character is piloting it.
>>
>>20748396
iirc bullshit spec maybe probably yes, but "stand against a named pilot's unit" then not really
>>
>>20748409
Well that’s why I said statistically.
So, in a fight between generic Zeon and OZ pilots in just Zakus and Leos, would the Leos stand a better chance?
>>
>>20748420
In a 1v1 fight it's a tossup between who gets hit first. A Leo can carry a beam rifle or dobergun that will destroy a Zaku in one hit but a Zaku machine gun can easily take out a Leo anyway.
>>
>>20748408
Leo's are basically superior to Zaku's in every way, but come off worse because the Gundam's in Wing are way more powerful than the RX-78 was so they're nothing more than fodder. It's like how Windam's in CE are actually statistically very good but look like shit because all they do in story is job the main characters and their ridiculously powerful Gundam's.

The plot armor is a unique thing though, and mostly because pilots in AC hop suits frequently, while in UC that isn't really a thing for protagonists so much. I think in Wing Wufei was the only main character that piloted his Gundam and only his Gundam.
>>
>>20748420
Absolutely. Leo's have more powerful weapons and can equip stuff like flight packs and external weapons, which Zaku's cannot do.

Wifei pilots Wing Zero briefly in one episode to fight off pursuing White Fang forces.

>>20748744
Powerful weapons are one thing, but Zakus also have flight platforms and external weapons like the Skiure
>>
>>20748420
Leo are superior in almost every way, are more versitile, and can carry and mount better weaponry without additional large equipment needed like mentioned in >>20748833. Even on the armor front the Leo has better armor (On paper at least) using a titanium alloy compared to the steel/ceramic composite alloy of the zaku II. They just tend to die in droves because of plot armor (Like that time one got hit in the head camera and the entire machine blew up yet when a main character pilots it suddenly it can soak up bullets without exploding).

What they are meant to be is the most prolific military unit for giant robot combat.
From their drab olive green uniform to their versatility and range of option parts, that's why there are so many of them in the AC era. They've basically existed for decades with minor updates to their design.

Pretty much. Gundam Universe figures always tweak the design, but they're fairly spartan on accessories. Like FFS they made a Nu that just comes with a saber and a funnel.

Is the Leo supposed to be a GM expy or a Zaku expy? Because I can see both sides' influence on its design.

Wish there was a spinoff Wing videogame that let you use all the grunt suits.
Like the premise would be you are running a small MS mercenary team in the setting taking jobs from various employers involving the many small conflicts of the world, building up your pool of machine as time goes on which you then customise the appearance and performance/loadout of.

Would have stuff like if you got good rep with groups such as the Maganac Corps they would offer you access to their signature mobile suits.
>>
>>20760039
I always thought that a Zeonic Front type game for Wing would be killer. The Gundams could randomly appear on maps and you'd be forced to retreat early on because of how overpowered they are. Since they don't appear on radar, all you'd see is explosions and hear screaming over the radio. Except when Deathscythe appeared and all your sensors would be jammed. leaving you with a fuzzy screen and no idea where to go or what was happening. If you could coordinate your team enough to damage a Gundam you could be rewarded with special weapons like Heavyarms' gattling or a whole arm from Shenlong you could slap on your unit etc.

Gundam Universe pointedly tweaks all the designs a little to what they consider more striking. So they tend to come out with sharper angles and beefier proportions. They're fairly solid for a $25-$30 action figure, just they tend to skimp on accessories. But with the Leo you apparently get a gun and a saber, which is about what you get in the HGAC.

They are also non-scale, so all the suits are the same basic height (6 inches). Also there's only so deep they go in effects, so while things like the gold effect on their Wing are okay, their Unicorn is kinda awful paintwise.

Gundam Universe has been the best thing for the marketability of Gunpla in the West in a long time. Probably since the Battle Scarred era. The Leo is peak masculine physique

And yet, why they even bothered with Gundam Infinity is beyond me
>>
>>20769472
Gundam Infinity is a different size and is meant for people who like Build a Figure. Both lines suffer heavily from a lack of accessories and small waves. Infinity also suffers from bad articulation due to the build gimmick but they aren't in a weird scale.

I guess since it was an early shot (studio animators just started drawing Leos and haven't developed a sense for things yet) plus the fact that they wanted the long beam launcher all in the same frame, the Leo ends up looking a bit oddly thick. Also for some reason it's missing the space-use backpack.

Maybe the Leos that can turn their heads are early models that function like the Tallgeese

Its weird though, it charges up and fires a small shot of energy that then explodes?

>>20748396
Everything in Wing is super powered comparatively. Their materials science is light years ahead.

A Zaku is 56-75 tons
A Leo is 7 tons
Roughly the same height
>>
>>20780749
While most of it is the typical "Gundam stats are illogical horseshit made up by non-engineers" part of it could also be that Leos are made of titanium alloy which would be lighter weight that the Zaku's steel/ceramic composite armor. The leo is also not as bulky as the zaku.

Correct. Actually, every single one of the five main protagonists gets his chance in the Wing Zero and the Zero system. Other than them, Zechs and Lieutenant Trant pilot it, as well.

The Tallgeese III's mega launcher pretty much does the same thing.

the difference between the density of titanium and steel isn't even close to that much. an M1 Abrams for example is half the height of a RX-78 in length and yet weighs 90% of the same weight. Gundams are memetically light already. the wing MS weights are unironically lighter than if you made them out of wood and cardboard.

In terms of its role as first MS it's technically the MS-01 in the main UC timeline, the first true MS to have a humanoid form and a minovsky fusion reactor. In the Origin version it would either be the mobile worker MW-01 or the Waffe as the first technical MS.

"Swole Leo" is not a variant, OP is just making a joke. The Leo is getting a Gundam Universe action figure, and that line makes everything look thick and buff. Looks fine on some stuff (mostly 90s designs) but looks terrible on others (like 00 and ibo).

On at least two separate occasions, a small number of Aries were enough to subjugate much larger Leo forces. There's that time that OZ had a small force commanded by ace pilots Alex and Muller, they were able to lay waste to Alliance bases using a single Cancer and Aries. A few Aries borrowed from OZ were almost enough to topple the Leo forces of the Chinese region where Colonel Bunte was going to install himself as a local warlord. 5 Aries were enough to overpower the Leo garrison at the French city where Noventa's daughter was staying, the Leos retreated into an underground water channel and were still losing to the Aries despite fighting in a smaller cramped space where the Aries couldn't even make the most of their flight and mobility capabilities.

Leo's have thrusters in their feet and crotch and ass but addons to basically do anything in the air/in space right?

Also was this just an insane fever dream or those two things surrounding the head, missiles?

The Sandrock has them too and shoots them as missiles several times.
The weird part is that no one else is ever shown using them.
