Replacement banks of rope core programs for the Gundam's learning computer.
So? But seriously it's the vulcans. In the Origin manga the entire side parts of the Gundam's head came off (which almost makes some sort of sense) and for the OVA redesign Katoki went full retard and put the doors in the back.
I like how they have three different Zaku head designs then the Origin OVA one that contradicts the fuck out of all of them.
I totally believed this when I was a kid. Someone gave me a Physalis action figure for my birthday once and I thought every single little fucking detail on it was either a gun port or a missile launcher.
>tfw you think every mecha is the goddamned Ideon
actually those doors are from the 1/1 scale gundam statue, just look at all the kits based on the 1/1 gundam.
>all the kits based on the 1/1 gundam
Am I being rused?
The 1:1 is based on the Ver Ka gunpla, not the other way around.
I mean it was implied it probably came from somewhere else I just don't know why you would go that way with it. I assume the doors are probably like that in real life just so they can get inside the fucking thing for the eye lights.
I was kind of wondering in hindsight what the point of picking the Revive to get was when all the current RX-78s besides the ugly as piss Origin OVA version have the same shape besides like the faceplate and backpack, but now that I've seen it the lack of the back of the head split line in the others sure irrationally pisses me off.
It just makes no sense for the Origin OVA design to be taking arbitrary RG details like that when they completely changed the design anyways though. (couldn't they have taken something useful like the split knees instead at least for fuck's sake?)
Randomly splitting armour plates into a million more fragile pieces doesn't make anything look more believable.
If it did it was very rare; Amuro made consistent legit use of his shield, so much so that the RX-78-2 is about the only Gundam where it doesn't feel like a pointless accessory to me.
>so much so that the RX-78-2 is about the only Gundam where it doesn't feel like a pointless accessory to me.
It feels weird to praise this, but SEED. CE beamsabers don't block each other, they require the physical shield. Then again, with SEED (at least early SEED) being so steeped in MS:G, that's not necessarily super notable.
The vulcan BARREL is next to the V Fin. What, did you think it was loaded by ramming the rounds down the barrel like a musket? And leaking coolant is a seriously bad idea. You want to run it through a radiator and recirculate it, not jettison it until you run out.

>Did you see that preview for Endless Waltz? That upgraded Zero has guns on his arms!
>Someone gave me a Physalis action figure for my birthday once
That person has impeccable taste.
Only significant time I remember was during the Texas colony battle, but for good reason
>shield was busted up even before the battle
>his opponent/s (Gyan/Gelgoog) basically made CQB a necessity
I think I was the weird kid that thought all glass looking parts of an MS were cameras/eyes. To me they looked like they were made out of the same material as the eyes so it just made sense to me.
The lens at the top of the head is the main camera, and the one on the back is a rear camera. The "eyes" are secondary cameras providing a view of the same scene from a slightly different angle that the onboard computer uses to calculate the position and range of targets in view.
>the first gundam/gms used caseless ammunition
>To help prevent the ammunition from cooking off,they make the rounds less powerful
>Fastforward to CCA, they use cased rounds for vulcans
>Because the rounds are cased they can make them much hotter, thus letting them do more damage to Mobile suits.
>making gun ownership an identity
please get laid and move on with your life
Tell that to the Russians
I know that the ERA is layered on top of the regular armor plates, but still
It's amazing the number of people who don't know how guns work. Even in America it seems people have gross misconceptions and the only people who do have an inkling about how guns operate are the gun owners themselves.
>the only people who do have an inkling about how guns operate are the gun owners themselves
The sad thing is that gun ownership is not really any guarantee that someone will know much about how they work.
Not sure what that has to do with anything, but sure. It's just like how lots of people own cars, but many of them don't know how they work. Chances will be greater that a person would know if they have owned and operated one.
> people with enough interest in guns to learn their mechanisms tend to go out and buy one
> people who have no interest in guns have no interest in guns
Gee, I never would have thought!
>I'm suppose to memorize the designs of a franchise I'm not even a big fan of and it's known for its lookalike lead robots to the point of distinguishing them from a screencap of 1/4 of their head
Sorry, I didn't know.
You're missing the point which was that people who don't own guns tend to come up with a lot of misconceptions about them. In this case believing that they are loaded from the barrel.
They don't really look all that much alike, though. They have some co mmmon design elements, and the hero gundams have mostly matching paint jobs, but most of them should be pretty easily distinguishable.
I could see someone getting Gunblaster and V-Hexa confused, or 0 Gundam and RX-78-2, maybe even Heavyarms and Leopard, but the rest of them really don't resemble each other that much.
