Every school girl
especially this one
I loved how distinct each set of armor was.
oh yeah. My favorite was the russians and their older looking suits with all the wires and scopedogs on them. Everythign about them is RUSSIA STRONK.
And boob plates. Don't forget the boob plates anon.
I love the functional detail. There is a lot going on but none of it looks out of place or pointless.
Goddamn do I love the Gundam helmets.
Not many other series have as aesthetically pleasing helmets as these. Maybe Macross, depending on which series we're talking about.
If we're talking uniforms, I like Orb's uniform.
If we're talking pilot suits, Londo Bell's are best.
Orb has some pretty good and simple pilot suits, too.
>Each pilot's is unique
In order for something to be a uniform, doesn't it have to be, uh, uniform? If everyone's rocking different duds, it's a suit at best, and just an outfit at worst. But uniform means the same. Conforming.
>I realize Eva's not the only show guilty of this.
Oh, and best uniforms is OZ.
Unfortunately, they're very unlucky...
Such a swaggers those Titans were.
They're totally necessary, honest.
>Oh, and best uniforms is OZ.
A-Laws uniforms are the worst ever in my opinion. They don't match other designs in the setting at all. Add on the fact it's not a cape it's fucking open face idol skirt attachment to their pants and it gets worse and worse. Aside from that a long skirt has no business in a active military uniform anyway, dress uniforms can be exceptions, it'll just get caught on things and get in the way. It's just plain bad at a concept level.
The only thing your pic proves is that Coulasour looks good in any uniform, even the horrid A-Laws one. I dig everything about Graham's except the hat, it's a bit too big for my taste.
I thought the same thing, but it grew on me. Between the blue and the beige though, I'd choose the blue.
Different Standards for Super Hero's outfits and Fictional Military Uniforms.
I always wondered why they gave Future America a French Hat
This is why you're wrong. Among probably quite a few other reasons.
Is that what they do?
I thought I remember reading somewhere that US Air Force pilots use large and flat buns on the back of their head if they don't want to cut their hair short.
Has the all-female fighter squadron DONE anything yet?
Or are they just a PR stunt by the Americans?
EA pilots really got unlucky with their pilot suit color. At least this way the viewers had an easier time knowing which death they would need to cheer and which deaths they would need to feel sad about.
the ZEON uniforms from Gundam 0080 are freaking amazing since they went full Nazi
the same can be said about the uniforms in MS IGLOO
also Titans have great stuff with the beret and black uniform
I really like the blue Londo Bell outfits. Titans are tied for best uniforms
For pilot suits, I fucking loves me some 0083-era Feddie suits. Think Chris in 0080 has a similar one
Look how spiffy they all are, /m/!
Space Germany is best Germany
>Jackets that don't reach the waist or cover the chest
For a woman, I imagine this would be the norm.
One thing I HAVE liked about Mub Ruv is the Uniforms.
The SV2's uniforms are neat.
The UN uniforms are certainly cool. The East German ones too.
I've always loved the Patlabor uniforms. Probably one of the few that make safety orange look cool.
Was that just a design choice or do their vests have some sort of purpose besides carrying their ammo and some pens to write tickets?
The girl's student uniforms were awful though. The ones with the giant shoulders?
I hate it when school uniforms in anime look more like fetish gear than something a student could be reasonably expected to wear.
Although 00 fails for having pilot suits that have armour that don't protect fuck all.
I still don't understand things like this, in both Pacific Rim and other shows like Gunparade
Why the hell would you put your pilot in movement-restricting plates? They can't possibly serve any protective purpose (relative to what they fight), so why not put the pilots in something that allows easy movement? Or take the Chinese route and give them nice looking flightsuits that add a bit of snaz to their marches?
Not all life support systems hold huge tanks of air. Much of the air in a single breath isn't fully processed by the lungs, so a rebreather just filters out the carbon dioxide from one's breath and feeds it back to the user. One of that size would probably last thirty minutes at least.
Some people are comfortable in their own skin
What? You don't like pilots in full battle-rattle?
OZ's service uniforms top out. Federal uniforms and anything worn by Klan Klein gets an honorable mention.
Though in OZ's case, their service uniforms are also their working uniforms/flying uniforms on Earth.
Why on earth does a MoCap suit have to be a suit of armour?
I thought mocap suits where things like this?
The autism is strong with this one...
The suits the Jaeger pilots wear are both armored but still flexible for several reasons.
1: To protect the pilot as they're literally hanging in mid air controlling the robot. Any bump or bang they're gonna feel.
2: To protect the drift technology used to interface the two pilots to the robot.
3: To provide limited environmental protection and to increase survivability if a pilot has to abandon their robot.
But this is lost on someone who can't suspend their disbelief for a work of fiction dealing with a ficticious technology
Excuse me for finding plate armor fucking stupid.
Not liking it is different from not understanding the logic.
I'll tell you why >>10955689 reacted insultingly.
You posted >>10955644, this is a motion capture system meant for use in a ROOM where you are free to move around. Jeager's pilot are meant to capture your movement while you have being hurled around in a FIXED cockpit that occasionally loose bit or let water in. That's why it have to be RIGID, to support the pilot's weight and even protect him. With force Feedback we should even be glad they don't look like bulkier exoskeleton.
As for the airfighter pilot suit you posted, those do NOT capture your movement, do NOT support you while moving around, and you don't have to worry about protection because with plane you are either dead or have ejected.
...and this is why YOUR example look way more stupid than any "full plate armor" would be in this context.
OZ and Romfeller just win me over.
Titans is pretty high up
Space janitor pajamas only have the shouldars and collar for it, which the above mentioned uniforms do better. Also, pic related is just a classier thing overrall since it's not too busy but uses elements of historical uniform. The cravat is the linchpin for the FPA uniform. Also, jackets jackets jackets. FPA is 2 jackets over the tunic, don't ask me how it works, it just does.
>But this is lost on someone who can't suspend their disbelief for a work of fiction dealing with a ficticious technology
I'd say it's more lost on someone who feels a strong need to jump to the defense of the logical integrity of something that was almost assuredly designed because it looks cool.
I think your confusing pacificrim with g gundam.
>But this is lost on someone who can't suspend their disbelief for a work of fiction dealing with a ficticious technolog
That or they just never watched the movie. And are just pulling shit out of their ass.
>With Force Feedback we should even be glad they don't look like bulkier exoskeleton.
What does controller rumble have to do with piloting a Jaeger?
I'm not fluent in english so maybe I used the wrong term.
What I mean by Force "feedback" is that if the robot arm got forcibly pushed back, the pilot arm have too to match position and strength.
And to do that you need motor, like in an exoskeleton but working reverse.
Jeager's suit are meant to look cool but saying it should be identical to movie's motion capture or fighter-jet flightsuit is lacking in both imagination and critical thinking.
I've always been partial to the Londo Bell/Ecoas look. But that's everything from the Uniforms to ships. Otto Midas' coat was swagilicious. I also like how ECOAS' suits are a good mix of tactical and normal suits.
Runner's Up ate 0083's DANGAH ZONE uniforms, 08th MS tanker looking outfits, and the Alliance Uniforms in SEED.
>Why are they called "normal" suits?
According to Tomino's MSG novels, ordinary space suits are referred to as "normal" suits to differentiate them from "mobile" suits. I guess when you have two very different things that both have a tendency to simply be called "suits," it pays to be specific.
Those are my favorite parts of most flight suits as well.
Hey I'm looking through this artbook man and damn
... and their AS pilots suits are top tier.
Pilots need to monitor all of their surroundings, not just what's infront of them. Early warning systems can only cover so much, sometimes it needs a pair of trained eyes to identify an incoming hostile efficiently.
Okay, I'll point it out as you seem to be too dense otherwise to see it.
A pilot constantly has their head in motion. They're not looking directly forward all the time.
Also at least in terms of the Veritech you need the windscreen as it is an aircraft after all, and you have to protect the pilot.
For fuck's sake. You are that stupid.
Lead times to combat would be longer in fighter mode. That's kinda the point of being able to change modes. And if monitors and AR are good enough for battroid mode combat, they sure as hell would be enough for fighter mode. And if that's the case, why bother with a transparent windscreen which requires extra protection to slide into place in close-combat mode?
Conversely, if visibility in battroid mode really does require those extra monitors, then the AR system is either incomplete or insufficient. In which case you wouldn't want it to obstruct your visibility when in fighter.
The whole point of being able to move your head as a fighter pilot, something that's difficult when pulling g's, is to keep your eyes on the enemy. But when you have a huge awning sticking out above your eyes, something current AR helmets don't do, it just means you have to look up even farther in order to keep your eyes, and thus your lift vector, on the enemy.
Either way, why do something you don't need to do that's just going to complicate things?
Fuck, the lack of visibility out that thing...
What could possibly be stored in those chin and forehead bumps?
Give me something more like pic-related please
It's from gundam, I'm guessing the Chin Bump is a Radio Mic or something. Minovsky Particles block out all radiation and waves (Or atleast most) so they have to use very bulky systems for communication.
It's anyone's guess for the Forehead Bump. Extra Armor? I mean, those things are fragile, Marida Cruz's (OP's Pic) visor Broke in Episode 3 of Unicorn Gundam.
Frankly, I'm kind of Disappointed that they haven't had any helmets like above in Gundam.
Yes they can, the problem is not so much the altitude than the speed.
The wiki said the life-support was specifically made so they could breath even at the highest altitude.
And from what I understand they could eject at Mach 3.2
However I don't see how the pilot could survive that like on other plane so I have to guess they had some sort of ejection pod like the XB-70
Holds the computer and technology needed to give the pilot an accurate HUD which is projected right onto the glass of the helmet.
Holds the communication equipment which is large enough to give it enough power to cut through storms and electronic interference.
Look up images of women in tight clothes.
The clothes don't form two perfect boob-socks, there's a single bulge over the chest. To get the boob-sock effect you'd have to had designed the clothes that way, which no one does.
I actually have a very capable and probably headcanon... The armor is there to restrict the pilots. It literally is there to restrict them. Why? To ensure they don't make any moves that the Jaegers can't copy. That's why Striker's and Gipsy's suits were far less bulky, They had more freedom of movement. Cherno's was far more bulky, to ensure that the Kaidanovskis didn't move in ways that Cherno couldn't copy.
Do they actually control the jaegers with their body movements, or do they control them with their brains? That would explain all the neural stress; and the "mo-cap" system would basically be there to hold them in place, because when their brain tells the jaeger to "walk," their body would also start walking.
It's clearly a mixture of both. They are obviously exerting physical force when they start walking in original Gipsy deployment, and there's clearly a good bit of feedback on general movement at times.
Well, 'casualty' is a bit more far-reaching when used in its military definition. As well as referring to any person who's died in combat, it also refers to people who have been wounded in combat, killed by diseases, disabled by diseases, captured, disabled, missing, or crippled by sever psychological trauma.
But really, Yui kind of got out well enough, so even then its usage is questionable.
Pilots shot down are considered casualties, even if recovered.
That's why you had double-clipped pilots during the Battle of Britain (British pilots who went up, got shot down but survived, went back up in the same day in a new bird, and got shot down again)
Z-10's and their pilots do look like something out of an /m/ show, don't they?
Looks just as compact, maybe a little more room for the pilots.
>no integrated gun turret, but a 12.7 mm (0.50 in) gunpod can be fitted if needed
>The German Army decided against the French 30 mm (1.2 in) GIAT cannon used on other Tiger versions due to dissatisfation with the heavy recoil of this weapon
Germans asking for less dakka? that's a first
But actual big-ass spacesuits don't have that.
Not really a uniform, but since you started with a spacesuit...
Most big-ass spacesuit wearers aren't put in situations where they'll be under the pressure of being in combat.
The closest I can think of a combat-situation with a full-helmet is when Gary Powers was shot down in his U2 and he said that part of the reason he fucked up the proper ejection checklist for U2 pilots is because he was fogging up the glass of his helmet with his panic'd breathing and couldn't see as well. And by the time he realized he needed to calm down, the U2 was in such a violent death spiral that he couldn't reach for the self-destruct lever and could only eject, thereby letting the U2 fall to the earth mostly intact and giving the Soviets a U2
Pic-related, a U2 pilot
I'm not sure whether I'd rather "correct" him or the retard who thought that pos excuse for an aircraft was at all a good idea.
They probably measured his head in a mask to make a custom one.
Also you can see the subtle difference between FF and Char. Char was wearing simple orange spacesuit and Sazabi didn't have any gold-on-black Zeon insignia like Sinanju.
>Modesty cover for the bottom, but no modesty cover for the chest
I don't know why this bothers me. If I was in charge, I'd either have both private areas covered up or neither. Just having one covered draws attention to the uncovered one.
To be fair though, there are probably a ton of other squadrons that have done just as little. It's not like they're not a legitimate squadron, just that the only thing remarkable about them is that they're all female.
While I'll admit that's an interesting idea, the reason that hull-down works for turreted vehicles is because the gunner can still see over the cover while the rest of the vehicle is covered.
How would that little girl both go hull-down and yet still keep visibility for her to aim and shoot her turret?
>Start a robotics start-up called NERV
>Custom work uniforms for all employees as well as NERV logo EVERYTHING
Done. Won't help you too much with the lack of a giant robot genetic engineering monster but hey, you're in the robotics business now so get to it.
I agree. I also like Zaft officer uniforms (red preferred, I don't like most of the other color schemes) and I like the uniforms worn by 08th MS Team on Earth. They had a real Vietnam feel (based on movies and shit, not like I'd know the real deal anyway.)
Mithril has some great uniform design. Considering trying something similar.
So i was gonna read the manga because it actually finishes all the books perfect and also awesome fan service, is that kurts or whatever the blond sniper was called shes fucking? do they get together in the end?
>Has sex with a guy, falls in love--->slut.
well awesome, I always though he should of got with her in the anime, gonna read the manga sooner or later but is that him >>11020658 there or does he fuck her later on. how much fan service do we get of mai in the manga?
