What the fuck is the AT Field by the way? The invisible magic force keeping everyone from becoming tang? Angels and Evas just have super duper strong ones?

>The invisible magic force keeping everyone from becoming tang?
Basically, yeah.
It's what separates human minds from each other.

aka, ego.
>>
>>121292548
AT fields are what makes everyone an individual. The reason everyone becomes tang when their fields are gone is because they loose their individuality.

The way the Angels and Eva use it is a physical projection of that to physically protect themselves.
>>
>>121292355
This.
Also Mobile suits would make a lot of sense in the future for rescue operations, traveling short distances in space, and intimidation factor.
>>
>>121292548

Nigga, I hope you jest. Angels are the children of the god Adam. Every Eva except Unit-01 is a clone of Adam. Unit-01 is a clone of the god Lilith. Nice try though grouping their children as what the Evas are cloned from. And AT fields are the things that separate the minds of people. In angels, they separate physically.

Mecha would be viable in space simply because when you're out in space shape means fuck all and you can pretty much make any vehicle any shape.

Small mecha like Knightmare Frames and ATs from VOTOMS would be viable as well, but in a role of heavy infantry, not as vehicles.

They're gods just as much as the Founders are gods in DS9.

There are too many instances where the Gundam head gets blown off and the suit is still perfectly functional. Like literally what's the point of making it human shaped then, just install the sensors somewhere else.
>>
>>121293069
Mobile Suits have secondary cameras mounted on the chest. They're obviously not as effective as the shielded head-mounted ones but are useful when the situation forces it.

Why the Zekes never designed a rear-facing camera I'll never understand, the Feddies had it from the start.

The AT field is basically macroscale quantum voodoo, and the EmDrive / Q-thruster is pushing against virtual particles (a quantum-scale phenomenon) to get macro-scale thrust and "free energy" once you get over 2.5km/s velocity.

Not right now.
The standard model is far from complete though. Who knows, there might be another gauge invariant force boson a-la photon to channel a force a-la electromagnetism which upon colliding with another such field produces visible interfering photons a-la electrodynamics.
Though you'd need an asspull comparable to the Z and W boson formation in neutron decay.

Flying space mechs, an AT field, or similar is the only reason you would ever use mecha. Stompy tanks are dumb, expensive, and needlessly complex.

Boarding actions, asteroids, moons, etc. You sure as hell wouldn't have ground troops in tiny ass space suits doing that fighting.

>literally space magic, i dont know why you would talk about it in any discussion of practicality
It's space magic that only works on biomecha, that's why it's an argument in favor of mecha. Keep in mind that basically all mecha except babbyshit walking tanks require space magic or very soft sci-fi to work, so "hurr magic" isn't a relevant point here.

>The Minovsky Physics Society was formed in U.C.0045 at the space colony Side 3. Their research was devoted to the development of a nuclear fusion reactor. By the year U.C.0047, development of the Minovsky-Ionesco reactor began. This reactor, although designed by Dr. T.Y. Minovsky in his earlier days when he was serving the Earth Federation, was still a piece of black box technology and rendered him a heretic in the classical physics community. This is the main reason for his termination of service in the Earth Federation and taking residence in Side 3 prior to the One Year War. However, seeing the horror of the Zabi family's militaristic regime, Minovsky defected back and offered his expertise to the Federation. However, his inventions were applied very differently by the Earth Federation.

>The Minovsky-Ionesco reactor was named after its fictional inventor. This reactor was "radical" due to the fact that it was the first "clean" nuclear reactor, emitting zero neutron radiation. The nuclear equation was:

{}^3_2\mathrm{He} + {}^2_1\mathrm H \to {}^4_2\mathrm{He} + \mathrm p (energy released: 18.35 MeV)

>The reactant used a rare isotope of helium known as helium-3 (i.e., 2 protons and 1 neutron in the nucleus). A helium-3 atom is fused with a deuterium atom (heavy hydrogen) to form the stable helium-4 and a single proton. Since the proton is positively charged, it can easily be trapped within a magnetic field. The main practical problem with this reaction is that helium-3 is extremely rare; there are few deposits on Earth, mainly found in uranium mines, and these are mostly depleted. The Gundam world's fusion reactors rely on a constant supply of helium-3 imported from the outer solar system planet Jupiter, thus necessitating the beginning of the Jupiter Energy Fleet. The JEF would travel from Earth to Jupiter, which has a high level of helium-3 in its atmosphere, and then come back to Earth with the gas fuel.

i know mecha are unrealistic. But you can reason out why they are used in ground combat, so ground based mechs make sense. Space mechs dont. having arms and legs gives you nearly 0 advantage in space combat

How can a spaceship hit what it can't see?

>The main use of the Minovsky particle was in combat and communication. When the Minovsky particle is spread in large numbers in the open air or in open space, the particles disrupt low-frequency electromagnetic radiation, such as microwaves and radio waves. The Minovsky particle also interferes with the operations of electronic circuitry and destroys unprotected circuits due to the particles' high electrical charge which act like a continuous electromagnetic pulse on metal objects. Because of the way Minovsky particles react with other types of radiation, radar systems and long-range wireless communication systems become useless, infra-red signals are defracted and their accuracy decreases, and visible light is fogged. This became known as the "Minovsky Effect".

>The disruption of electromagnetic radiation is due to the small lattice of the I-field creating fringes that long wavelengths cannot penetrate, and that diffract wavelengths that have similar distance with the fringes. This diffraction and polarization process disrupts the electromagnetic waves.[
>>
The only thing that mechs would be useful for is land invasion and control, which is currently the weakest point of modern armies.

The mechs would however need to be almost human sized while possessing a very thick armor. They would also need to be fairly agile in order to be completely preferable to tanks.
>>
>>121294711
compared to space? yeah.

they arent practical, but they are MORE practical than space mechs
