>>13854008 >Max FUCKING Jenius in a top-of-the-line prototype of a franchise that tends to have ridiculous mech specs VS >one of Gendum's least competent protagonists in a Zaku with a GM head and a tank cannon That's not a matchup, that's bullying.
I dunno. The Zentradi have been using the same machinery to produce their ships that was built before the evolution of Humans on Earth began. With no repairs or maintenance, even, because they don't know how to fix anything. Those factory sats just keep on trucking on their own accord.
And Zentradi weapons left abandoned in space for thousands of years still work perfectly.
Even taking into account Turn-A, nothing in Gundam has lasted that long, much less in working condition, much less in perfect condition.
Honestly, the VF21 doesn't need ranged weapons to absolutely humiliate a mobilesuit. It has Pinpoint Barriers.
The VF 21 can just saunter up to the mobilesuit all slow like, slapping missiles and beams out of the air, and then cut the mobile suit in half with its bare hands.
If the mobile suit tries to run away, the VF just uses its engines a little. These fuckers can travel from the moon to the Earth in less than an hour, no mobile suit that doesn't teleport has shit on them.
>>13854324 The pinpoint barrier only covers one hand or a shield at best The vf isnt big enough to instantly destroy the ms by punching a hole in it, a beam saber would clearly win in melee >>13854284 Nothing decays in space you cretin There would no reason for a ship in deep space to stop working if abandoned
>>13856280 >The pinpoint barrier only covers one hand or a shield at best Wrong. Rewatch the scene from the Plus movie where the Ghost is shooting at Guld's YF-21 and you can see two pinpoint barriers activated on both arms.
>>13856365 >it still couldnt outfight anything with a beam saber
It's faster, it can just kite the thing. Even if its ranged weapons aren't capable of firing anything actually deadly, all it has to do is wait for the opponent to drop their melee weapon for their ranged ones, then rush in extraordinarily fast and ram them with the Barrier active.
>>13856409 a beam saber is longer than a whole VF A mobile suit can move it's arms just as fast as a vf, especially if it has magnetic coating If the pinpoint barriers are activated it can't 'rush in' because their reactor usage leaves the thrusters weakened If the beam saber gets anywhere near the vf it is over due to being incinerated It cant block the beam saber with its pinpoint barrier because the magnetic field would pass right through and the plasma on the outside of the beam would melt the arm
>>13856450 A lot of beam sabers are actually quite long I worded it a bit badly, the point is the arm behind the pinpoint barrier would melt in my opinion Also does the pinpoint barrier destroy everything it touches or does it just allow the vf to punch without breaking its own arm?
>>13856467 >Also does the pinpoint barrier destroy everything it touches
Sort of. When it hits things, those things have to move. That means when the punch goes into the Mobile Suit's arm, it will go through the arm, and the arm has no say in this. Or the head. Or the cockpit. Or anything that pinpoint barrier happens to go near.
>I worded it a bit badly, the point is the arm behind the pinpoint barrier would melt in my opinion
If it's so hot that it can just do that through VF's actually quite good armor (At least, I think the YF-21 was late enough for that?), then how doesn't it melt the Mobile Suit that's holding it?
As far as animation shows, it has to actually touch the opposition, and it can't do that if the Pinpoint Barrier is nopeing the fuck out of it.
>>13856467 >I worded it a bit badly, the point is the arm behind the pinpoint barrier would melt in my opinion >Also does the pinpoint barrier destroy everything it touches or does it just allow the vf to punch without breaking its own arm? So you're proclaiming a beam saber would go through a pinpoint barrier when you don't even know how a pinpoint barrier works? Nigga, it's made up dimensional space energy. That means it's an anti-matter disc of energy. NOTHING is passing through it.
