>>13770225 No, they're run by a neutral party. You fuck with the Jupiter energy fleet and nobody gets any energy. So nobody fucks with the Jupiter energy fleet because even Zeon isn't retarded enough to tamper with their energy source.

That said, the industrial and logistical cost of them would have have probably ended the war a little earlier, and it'd make a pretty kick-ass exhibit for a ticket holder at the Kubinka Tank Museum. So we missed out.
The biggest issue with the land invasion of Russia was absolutely SHIT CROPS ANYWHERE. Napoleon's armies moved quickly, ahead of their supplies, and took food from nature and surrounding villages as they went to supplement themselves while the supply trains caught up. There simply wasn't anything in Russia to take or steal.
The bad weather later just compounded this problem, but it's not like Napoleon said, "All right, let's attack Russia as soon as the snows fall. Yeah, you'll be fine in your board shorts, mon ami." They seriously thought there'd be food, the roads wouldn't be completely terrible, and the supply trains would catch up. In essence, they overestimated how developed of a place Russia was.
>>13779044 Fucker decided to wage a two-front war. Against a major trading partner who had no reason to fight him. After a certain point you have to realize that no amount of competence can save you from pants-on-head retarded decisions like that.
>>13779253 There's a difference between atmospheric cold and vacuum. In atmosphere, your heat is transfered away from you. In the vacuum of space there is no atmosphere to do this and you retain your heat.

>>13779562 >What did Hitler need such a comically large weapon for? Shooting space ships? The same reason the Japanese built the Yamato.
Both Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan were aware that they could never beat the Allies in quantity. They were always going to be out-produced. So by default they HAVE to design weapons that, in theory, could win against overwhelming numbers.
Unfortunately, just because you built a ship or a gun that costs 10 times more than usual, it doesn't mean it would be 10 times more effective.
Superweapons was the Axis' only chance at victory. Bad for them and good for the Allies, it was the Americans who came up with a super-weapon that worked. The nuke.
>>13781439 >Super weapons weren't even needed. Germans were beaten without them (Russian tech was inferior), Japanese would give up sooner or later. But of course. My point is that it was the Axis who needed a super-weapon to survive. But the Allies, who as you said didn't need one, who ended up getting a real functional superweapon.
>>13785786 They ran out of broken teenagers, they had all died training for or on Okinawa. Their cloning labs were destroyed by the PRc Black Lotus spy network of the Allies in retaliation for being led onto a false operation that resulted in them stealing plans for pro-Manchu gachapon toys instead of the chain-lightning gun the Kuomingtang leaders had believed, and the Germans took a loan from the Japanese to build Unit 2 that they never returned, hindering Nipponese ability to build more.
Unit 3 was eaten by a cloud jellyfish monster en route to its test site a week before Nagasaki, and an ill-fated intercept by Army Air Forces caused 36 American bombers to jettison their combined bomb load over the disguised Eva research facility in order to escape the fighters. No one has found Units 0 and 1 to this day.
The Americans captured Unit 4 and used it several decades later to install their FREEDOM Engine on it but forgot to overwrite its OS with American capitalist pay2upgrade trashware, and the conflict in coding caused the FREEDOM Engine to explode, taking the entire facility with it and, according to government reports, "making the test site absolute pro-American".
It is prophesied by a blind seer with a black giant filled with green crystal living under the Himalayas that in 2017 it shall be revealed that during the Shin Neo Jewish Uprising the now-defunct World Jewish Front had obtained Unit 0 to make Units 5 to 12 from. Japan shall fulfill the prophecy by providing one emotionally-broken 14-year-old male who will summon the lost Eva Unit 1 and use its F.A.P.A.R.M. weapon to destroy Units 5 to 12. Russia will also do something with an original Eva Unit they had built from spy plans in 1944 that nobody knew about despite them parading it during Victory Day every year since 1945.
>>13769821 Hitler and Napoleon would have been unstoppable if armed with mobile suits simply because nothing of those eras could penetrate mobile suit armour. MS could very well kill entire armies of tens of thousands of men with their feet alone, eventually, simply because of how impenetrable gundarium and even zaku-level steel armour was. Furthermore, a system of that size is not going to be hindered by the weather conditions anymore simply by means of how much raw torque and force they generate. Cold is never a hindrance to space-developed systems, and mud and precipitation stop being a problem when MS are underwater-capable.
