It'll always be the Hyaku Shiki for me
>>21441919For me, it’s the dijeh
>>21441919for a design that emphasizes mobility it works surprisingly well as a walking tank as well
>>21441919Hey Quattro>>21441928Is there any reason why this is appears so rarely in SRW?
>>21444450Incredibly bland suit. Although I think we had the SE-R show up more than the standard. Although if we could look to Moon or MSV-R we could get some cool Dijeh variants to use
>>21444450The Dijeh is incredibly ugly between its color scheme, merman back fins, and the really ugly rendition of the zaku's shoulder asymmetry
>>21444450>Is there any reason why this is appears so rarely in SRW?Autistic OYWfags get triggered something fierce anytime Amuro's not in a basic Gundam unit.
>>21444518Amuro's most kino moment was when he got in the Guncannon though
For me its the Hyaku Shiki Crash
>>21444475>blandnah it's ugly not bland
>>21441919Rick Dias is mine.
>>21444475>>21444502>>21446071SHIT taste>>21444518Amuro doesn't have to use it but?
>>21441919That's just a worse Delta Plus
>>21446646Best gundam somehow got to the worst character.
>>21446646>Shiki, but as a bayformerGet some taste kiddo.
>>21441919First gunpla I bought. Was maybe 1/4 through Zeta when I ordered the HG
>>21441919What does the cockpit smell like?
>>21441919Comes with a specializes cum gun in the finger
>>21447839I imagine it smelled like Char. Who I imagine smelled like tobacco, sunglasses cleaner, and his mother's perfume.
>>21446852What game is that screenshot from?
>>21448582Dynasty Warriors Gundam Reborn
>>21447126>has less visual clutter>exactly the same transformation as zeta plus>bayformer
>>21448732why so blurry
>>21448776It's a ps3 game
>>21454956 what's that other red suit next to zero shiki
>>21454956Why does the Kai have a Xenomorph head?
>>21459377what's that other red suit next to zero shikiIt's the MSN-001-2 Delta Gundam II, from a GFT (Gundam Front Tokyo) clip titled "Competition of new Gundam - Red or White"
>>21463181The Gundam Wiki says it can carry 2 pulse lasers in its head, I have also heard it has more space to store ammo for the vulcans.
>>21441919Quasi-Psycommu is super neat
>>21441919I am a simple man.
>>21446646>Delta PlusMake it Gold and keep the blue beam stuff. That'll be the peak.
>>21464492head beam vulcans?
>>21469005of culture, i see.
>>21469005Nothing wrong with that.
>>21467383Between this and the Dreissen, Rakan has supremely good taste.
>>21441919why don't we see more suits based off the shikiwe sometimes get our typical rx-78-2, MKII and Zeta likes in other AUsnever the Shiki despite how influential it was for UC suit designs going forward Maybe Astrays are Shiki-likes
>>21448737>Delta plus>less visual clutter than the type 100in what reality?>exactly the same transformation as zeta plusachtually it's better because it tucks it's legs in, although it forgoing the tail kind of spoils it's 10/10 flight mode
>>21446852Who is this worst character? I've seen all UC and all I've seen of Delta Plus is the five seconds it gets (Along with Zeta Plus) in Unicorn
>>21477824>in what reality?In this one? It's sleek as fuck.
>>21477847yeah that's as the jetnigga looks like a cathedral in suit form
>>21475008What's Lalah gonna do a run-in with? Qubeley
>>21477830The Delta Plus has only been piloted onscreen by Riddhe "Ultra Simpcuck" Marcenas. Riddhe's also the only ReZEL pilot that doesn't eat shit. The guy gets cool suits despite being an absolute joke
>>21477861he literally doesn't>>21454956
>>21477978compared to the og hiyaku shiki? yeah he does lol
>>21478092Such beautiful animation wasted on such horrific designs
>>21478092How did that cockpit punch not kill Riddhe?
>>21478115It severely fucked him up and gave him brain damage for the rest of the series
>>21477946>Ultra SimpcuckAnon spitting hot fire
>>21480162Thanks you too
>>21471751lasers, not beams. G-Defenser's got two of them by the cockpit as well. Apparently there's some lore saying defenses against them were developed before the One Year War so they're not very common.
>>21454956Delta Plus>Hyaku Shiki>Delta Gundam>Hyaku Shiki Kai>Full Armored Hyaku Shiki Kai>Delta II>Full Armored Hyaku Shiki Kai Ground Type>Zero Shiki>Delta Kai>Delta Kai Ground Type>Hyaku Shiki Kai Mass Production Type
>>21441919Am I retarded or did Zeta not explain this suit at all? >my Rick Dias is destroyed >this is my new suit now >I will take it since we are on the moon where the suit is also located >it wasn't gold before but it is now>I will not elaborate
>>21492077>Char gets his suit destroyed>He's the Argama's Ace so he needs a new one ASAP>We're on the moon, HQ of Anaheim Electronics, who are building top of the line mobile suits>Anaheim happens to have a failed Delta Gundam prototype they can give away>Char takes it as a replacement and has it painted gold because he has a gigantic ego>Boom there's your Hyaku Shikithis is how I understood it
>>21492427The gold paint is an anti beam coating. I don’t think he picked the colour considering his Rick Dias was still red
>>21492451Char had a brief moment of clarity and realized gold is the superior motif.
Is the Hyaku Shiki actually high performance? It's supposed to be super maneuverable or something, right? Char didn't do much better in it than he did in his Rick Dias but he wasn't fighting Asshimars and Hambrabis and Qubeleys in his Rick
>>21493095it is high performance, yes. By the standards of early Gryps War. By the end of it Hyaku couldn't really compete 1 on 1 with bleeding edge prototypes from the Titans. Things got even worse with Neo Zeon involved.
>>21477797barbatos is a shiki clone. his 6th form borrows so much
>>21493095It's basically the second best MS on the Argama after the Zeta, but that's not saying much compared to what the Titans and Zeon have.
>>21493095I just figured it's basically equivalent to Zeta but can't transform
>>21498859>>21493095yeah kind of like that, it's an older "decrepit" design due to the Theta not really working out. I think the best way to put it is it's an older version of the Zeta that isn't entirely up to snuff with specs especially when it comes to forward thrust, but makes up for it by being rather agile when it comes to dodging which someone like Quattro can take advantage ofAlso I'm not sure how how legit this is, but that dude that dresses in a feddie jacket on youtube stated it as fact; The Hyaku Shiki is really a passion project by "Prof. M. Nagano" with the name coming from the fact they believed the suit would stay viable for a century
>>21498959that is correct, "Hyaku Shiki" literally means Type 100
>>21498959Isn't the Hyaku Shiki in the museum in G Reco? If so it lasted a lot longer than 100 years
>>21492451What does anti beam coating even do?It still gets fucked by lasers.
>>21503234I think it barely refracts the beamsit's not that useful and costs a lot of money, but it's strange in a logical sense that we don't see it having a comeback with post f90 suits; at least on vip suits. It'd add to the primary defense of just not getting hit lol that dominates that era of suits
>>21503260Crossbone Gundams use cloaks treated with anti beam coating. Much more practical than covering the armor, since once it takes the few hits it can be discarded or replaced much more easily
>>21477847Wouldn't this flight mode be unbalanced because of the rifle?
>>21509001I remember that dude from Doraemon
>>21503260Jegans and a lot of grunt units use ABCs.the thing is usually applied to the shields instead of the suit.
>>21503234It spreads the head out and burns off, letting the ms tank a minor beam hit to the area with mostly only damage to the armor that would otherwise blow a hole clear through the MS. Its not meant to nullify the beam completely, more like mitigate enough of it that it doesn't get compketely fucked over from a single hit. And of course a hit from something like a beam cannon will fuck it over regardless. >>21503260Its supposed to be expensive and a pain to apply so it gets primarily applied to disposable shields up until beam shields became the norm, even grunt shields. Also at some point they figured out how to make it not gold I guess considering gundams like zz and zeta also have full body anti beam coating.
i like the zeta plus a lot even if it's a jobber suit when it showed up unicorn.i like that its performance is basically on par with the original zeta minus the bio sensor.
>>21512565>it's a jobber suit when it showed up unicornthat's the norm for uni once bandai wasnt to sell toys but doesnt want to pay to animated all the different suits for more than a secondthe base had a Gustav Karl for crying out loud and it drops dead in a split second
>>21512565>i like that its performance is basically on par with the original zeta minus the bio sensor.But that's what made the Zeta busted
>>21508480I still have the BB Senshi.
>>21512785nah zeta's just a solid guy, he was going toe to toe with late Neo-Zeo suits
>>21512991>zeta's just a solid guyI don't like the cut of his jib
>>21513006*cuts your jib*
>>21512967What kind of Gunpla is that? MG?
>>21513057I miss SRW attacks not having all the extra bullshit
>>21477873In Gundam v Zeta Gundam's UC Mode, it's actually the first thing she unlocks in the alt timelines where she makes it to the Gryps era (and fortunately so because Mobile Armor gameplay is kinda wonky)
>>21513477It looks like the P-Bandai MG Hyaku Shiki Kai
>>21515810Haman, Ple or Ple2?
>>21441928I think it's neat but it doesn't really feel like something Amuro should pilot
I'm a simple man.I liked the mid air dogfight scene in Zeta.
The final shot of Zeta with the destroyed Shiki with the open cockpit is a better end stinger than any marvel "movie"
Am I the only one who can't stand beam weapons or space combat? Lasers are such BS, they blow up everything, cut through everything, and seemingly never run out of ammo when it matters. And why would you want something so big and bipedal in space combat? I'd rather be in a supermanuverable space plane or even a Ball if it could mount more weapons and was a little more modern. I guess there's no honor in war, and I know sound like a guy who misses Napoleonic warfare, but I miss the days of cased projectiles and maybe a superheated or blunt melee weapon.
>>21523099wrong file, meant to post this one. I just can't into space/late UC combat.
>>21441928Pimped out now its good
>>21523122why did we get this instead of the SE-R? Besides Ippei running with the chance to run with a FUB beer gut suit because that seems to be one of his favourites
>>21523099>never run out of ammoYou've never watched 0079.
>>21523099zeta's got a few moments of running dry or having to do something special to get more rangerunning out of ammo isn't a x fantasy weapon problem, it's a writing choice. Ammo count is either a powerfantasy or a source of tension for a scene
I think the Gazas are sort of neat.
>>21525261I like the other Gazas
>>21441919nise gundam, I want to hug and cuddle him and be his best fren
>>21525261>haha what if we just had stronger beams than anything else conventional during grypshow much coke were the neo-zeon r&d on?
>>21467383This thing has a 40 MW Mega Particle Cannon, Missiles and Grenades to counter I-Fields, INCOMs, Wire-Guided Hands for on site weapon precurement or mid range melee attacks and Electric Attacks to disable pilots for MS Capture and it doesn‘t even need a newtype pilot.Char is a fool for not continuing their mass production.
>>21525343technically different Neo-Zeons and not something produced by AEI would've guessed the Wolves blueprints must've been destroyed out of spite during the zeek civil wars hadn't the silver bullets showed up in NTwhat is fucked up is the fact the feds didn't make any more MKVs or their own wolves seeing they still had one left and the wreckage of the one Titan remnants nicked
>>21525343Imagine how much all of that must cost>>21525261Gundam was at its best when designs were varied and weirdos like this one were everywhere.
>>21525312They were hiding on a rock for a decade. They are powered by coke.
>>21525343Char couldn't mass produce those. His Neo Zeon was much poorer than Haman's. All his MS money was spent on the Sazabi, the Jagds, and the Azieru. The Geara Doga is a much much worse suit than the Zaku III or the Dreissen let alone that big green motherfucker
>>21525380I guess Axis Faction infighting wasted alot of money.
>>21525527nana like Neo-Zeon and (Newborn) Neo-Zeon are practically different organisations. There's probably a bunch of Spacenoids from the ZZ era Neo-Zeon who sympathise a lot more with Deikuns teaching, would rather have loyalties towards a Deikun trueborn or just don't like the Feds as their manhunts + kicking people off earth while wasting it's resources got worse. Char's Neo-Zeon is primarily consisted of refugees that had all culminated on a single colony that Char had fled to post Zeta who either came from other colonies that got fucked by war/fell into disrepair due to Feddy negligence and people very forcefully taken from EarthI wont say they're very poor because at this time AE was supporting the highest bidder, but they're definitely in a position where they're a bit harder off similar to the original Zeon was in. Comparatively ZZ Neo-Zeon is pretty flush with resources and money even with life on Axis seemingly quite bustling with one of the larger commercial streets seen in the earlier gundams in episode 18 (anything close to it is usually in an entire colony that has been gassed lmfao) in comparison to the more humble suburban sprawls of MSG, F91 and Zeta
>>21526866I'm not 100% on this or know the source of the info but Feds took control of Axis after ZZ. Char got his hands on it when they gave it to him during diplomacy
>>21525350>Gundam was at its best when designs were varied and weirdos like this one were everywhere.Mobile Suit development just sort of went full crazy between the OYW and Gryps didn't it.
>>21526866The original Principality weren't really poor, and had the funds for the largest military pushback against Zeon until Zanscare because the had the economy and resources of an entire Side. Which probably consisted for 30+ colonies. Char by comparison had one colony cylinder. Their original position was mostly poor by comparison to the Federation (i.e. the entire planet and 6 Sides compared to just 1 Side), and they used the innovation of turning mobile workers into a new military platform that could overwhelm the Federation during the advent of a post-Minovsky war where formerly ubiquitous things like radar were now worthless.
>>21447839A repressed anger.
>>21512565The fact that it only appeared to get bodied by Jesta still irritates me to this day. Neat design, though.
>>21447839Cheap liquor and curry
>>21454956I will never understand why they nerfed the Delta Kai so hard with its “upgrade”.what use is the nitro system without funnels?
>>21540185it still has all the other benefits of nitro system like increased performance and fire controlfunnels aren't practical in gravity anyway
>>21446080Rick Dias is fantastic
>>21539880hyuck u shitty
>>21545326Fujita is so good at imitating Nagano's style that I'm honestly surprised he hasn't made up his own Mortarheadd yet. This is pretty darn close though.
>>21545340Fujita was never trying to imitate Nagano. Quo Vadis looks nothing like anything Nagano has done.
>>21545347Don't get me wrong here, I'm not trying to discredit Fujita as an artist but it's pretty obvious his early designs do carry influence from L-Gaim.
>>21545340>>21545373>it's pretty obvious his early designs do carry influence from L-Gaim.Well yeah, Nagano hired Fujita to be his assistant when he was the head designer on Zeta before him. Nagano established the design language for Zeta (based heavily on L-Gaim) which Fujita and the rest followed.
>>21477797There is the Akatsuki in SEED Destiny and the Phenex in Narrative, but I think the biggest reason not-Hyaku Shikis are not common is due to the gold plastic needed for the kits.
>>21508953When it comes to atmospheric flight, fighter designs trend toward instability. A really stable design actually resists turning and wants to only fly straight so they're not good for maneuverability. Modern fighters have unstable designs for potentially high maneuverability but feature computer-aided flight systems that constantly calculate and perform corrections so it can be stable in normal flight and then make crazy turns in a dogfight when it has to.Or if you're talking about the rifle sticking out and causing a lot of drag and friction then yeah, Gundam designs are just kind of like that in general.>>21545723>>21477797If you expand it to "competent non-Gundam types" then arguably other machines like the G-Bouncer (all-white scheme) and Grimgerde (mostly purple) work. Otherwise for other gold MS there's also the Alvaaron.
>>21522943>Nearly 20 year old HGUC >didn't need parts forming
>>21547100it turns into a wheel of cheese bro
>>21546992it's pointy, not greeblya lot of unicorn designs have very plain flat surfaces save for the titular Unicorn because transformation and the sleeve's sleeves
>>21547100And its innacurate to the lineart and show, being much bulkier in its MA mode. The later ankshaa kit needs minor disassembly and a little extra connector part to acheive a slimmer profile instead of reusing the hg ashimar transformatiom even though they're near identical in transformation in the series.
>>21553794Too bad the Skank-sha looks like ass
>>21561145man, Epsy is so cool can't wait for bandai to pull a Mk-III and have a variant of it in a Build show but make the original kit p-bandai
>>21536253>>21512565>>21512637Someone recently posted on Twitter that a Zeta Plus showed up in the Narrative Manga and it fucked up two Jestas by flash grenading one. And then it killed the other in a Waverider Crash, killed a geara zulu in WaveRider mode shooting, and took on a 1v3 White Dreissen and nearly won but lost to Newtype plot armor and a suicide attack and apparently even got called a Gundam by the Neo Zeons and took over the manga for a whole two volumes while being nameless.
>>21567662>Narrative Mangaman which one? Return of the Lion?
>>21567667the one that covers the narrative manga, zeonic scanlations are super slow.
For me it’s the Jegan
>>21568520You're telling me that, if you were a mobile suit pilot that had your pick of the litter, you wouldn't go for hyper prototypes or adaptable super machines you'd go for the barebones minimalist grunt suit that gets shot down by stray fire?
>>21526866>There's probably a bunch of Spacenoids from the ZZ era Neo-Zeon who sympathise a lot more with Deikuns teaching, would rather have loyalties towards a Deikun trueborn or just don't like the FedsThere are. They fucked off to Mars to just build their own reinvented isolationist version of Zeon with blackack and hookers (and a Puru personality cult) and immediately started scrapping with the more militantly anti-fed OYW era Zeon remnants already there.
>>21569715Wait, these are Deikun loyalists and contolists? Why the fuck does Gundam wiki tell me they're the remnants of Haman's Neo Zeon who are lead by yet another Zabi, then?
>>21569807They are the latter, but their actuall ideology seems to have more in common with the former. Just to confuse everything further a chunk of them are ex-titans.
>>21503161is this from Gaia Gear?
>>21569839Post-CCA UC is so weird
>>21579938half of it is mangaanother quarter is constantly trying to be like a soft-reboot lmao
>>21540185They didn't really nerfed it, just specifically gave it Earth armaments since funnels are practically useless in gravity. Wouldn't mind seeing more of it though
>>21579938>Post-CCA UC is so weirdThat's what I love about it.
>>21586711When has anyone tried using funnels on Earth?
>>21590241Ple used Qubeley Funnels in Colony Gravity but I don‘t remember regular funnels on Earth.Where the Psyco Gundam Reflector Incoms wire guided?
Carris used funnels on Earth
>>21590241No, the Psyco Mark II's reflectors aren't wired. Right after the episode where the colony crashes into Dublin, Puru's Qubeley and Puru Two's Psyco Mark II use their remote weapons on earth, but as a rule of thumb those space-type remote weapons are supposed to be impractical on Earth due to gravity. They'd have to constantly fly forward and wouldn't be able to do the usual stop in place and shoot and strafe sort of movement they do in space.There are remote weapons that can work on Earth, and they are basically like the Shamblo's reflectors which incorporate RC drone-like propellers, or basically guided missiles like the funnel missiles from Hathaway's Flash.
