Please, anon. You can't start thinking of the U.N.'s patsies as people. Shit like that is why the Seele almost won in End of Eva.

It's not like it would have worked anyways.
Need that AT field.
>>
>>124900799
Development of an AT field generator and AT piercing weapons was only a matter of time. Jet Alone was a symbol of man's triumph through pure technological means.
What could have been.

Sasuga SEELE, plunging the world deeper into darkness.

This was a filler episode right?

>Anyone other than Seele and Nerv conducting any kind of research on metaphysical biology.
>Any alternative to the Eva project making it onto Seele's timetable.
>>
>>124900984
Its explicitly stated by someone in the episode that fully understanding AT fields was only a matter of time. They could have pulled it off.
Jet Alone was destroyed because the Nerv's Evas and the mass produced units were needed for instrumentality, and losing funding would have thrown a monkey wrench in their plans.

If Jet Alone was never destroyed and received adequate funding the world could have continued without ever being fucked up by another impact. There are a finite number of angels, its a solvable problem.

But that was just the prototype. Feast your eyes on Jet Alone Prime, a nuclear-powered death machine gives no shits whether you've got an AT field or not.

What's the cable for? Wasn't one of Jet's selling points was that it didn't need one?

Water hose.
>>
>>124901402
If it wasn't a thumbnail we could just read it and find out.
>>
>>124901402
It's a water intake hose. The reactor needs coolant to avoid going critical.
>>
>>124901181

>its explicitly stated by some dumb scientist who has every reason to be biased

AT fields are purely a soul-based thing. The people at NERV know this, which is why they knew Jet Alone was doomed from the start. It had nothing to do with rivalry, they were just trying to get humanity to stop wasting their resources on shit that would never work.
>>
>>124901181
>Its explicitly stated by someone in the episode that fully understanding AT fields was only a matter of time.

AT fields are literally the wall surrounding souls. They could never reproduce them with a machine. The Jet Alone guys are delusional.
>>
>a highly unstable fission reactor on legs controlled by a shitty fucking computer
Who looked at this thing and thought "yeah, this is a good idea, nothing can go wrong."?

>not taking a bunch of human souls,merging them and stuffing them inside Jet Alone
>>
>>124900838
To create an AT field you need a soul, and you'd need to do it fast. There's only the positron rifle and Lance of Longinus for AT piercing, and the former isn't always feasible. To develop more methods in such a short period of time would be difficult.
>>124901181
Yeah, because the Jet Alone creators don't realize what the hell an AT field is and what's needed to neutralize them. More likely, Jet Alone would have failed miserably and the Evas would have to clean up its mess.
>>
>>124900159

> all for nothing

I don't know if thousands of people worked on EVA...
>>
>>124900958
Well it established that funding is a thing and funding is a major issue.
>>
>>124901546
You can however brute force your way through an AT field with fucktons of conventional energy, which is what >>124901364 is designed for.

It's not canon, being from a spinoff, but it follows the laws regarding AT fields set out in the show.
>>
>>124901498
>AT fields are purely a soul-based thing
This is literally meaningless. Anything can be quantified. The Evas themselves meld souls together inside of the core plug, they obviously have a technical understanding of the fundamental concepts.

> The people at NERV know this, which is why they knew Jet Alone was doomed from the start.
Every single thing you typed out is utter bullshit. Nerv wanted Jet Alone destroyed for the same reason Seele wanted it destroyed and it had nothing to do with the project's viability.

>>124901546
>. They could never reproduce them with a machine.
Saying this ignores every thing in the Eva universe. Its nonsense.

>>124901575
>Seele propaganda
>>
>>124901471
That still really defeats the purpose.
>our robot is so much better! look it doesn't even need an energy cable!
>i-it does need a hose cooling the reactor so it doesn't explode and kill everyone instead but hey at least it's not an energy cable!
>>
>>124900159
Wouldn't a JA unit with a functional reactor and the Lance of Longinus be capable of killing an Angel?

Obviously SEELE would never fund such a project as it doesn't help bring about Instrumentality, but even the cabals that rule the world can't account for the actions of heads of state that only *THINK* they rule the world, and the competing project had to be eliminated.
>>
>>124901371

>>124901575
What about the knife? Doesn't it pierce AT?
>>
>>124901181
>Its explicitly stated by someone in the episode that fully understanding AT fields was only a matter of time.

That's because everyone outside of NERV and SEELE believed that the AT Field wasn't some quasi-magical thing, and that it was just a form of NERV proprietary tech that is capable of being replicated.
>>
>>124901888
Water is a much more abundant resource than electricity, is it not? Anywhere there's a river, lake, or ocean, you can operate indefinitely away from power lines.
>>
>>124901181
>implying third impact fucked up the world

choose-your-instrumentality was the best outcome, shinji didn't fuck up there
>>
>>124901903
Yeah, but anything would be capable of killing an Angel as long as it could fire or throw the Lance.
>>
>>124901700
It's the strongest, or at least the most emphasized, example of how much of a puppeteer Nerv can be.
>>
>>124901938
They're right though. AT fields were partially breached by N2 bombs, and completely breached by that photon sniper rifle that used all the power in Japan. As mystical as it might be, it can still be destroyed by conventional means.
>>
>>124900159
>thousands of people worked hard to create this

>>124901938
Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.
That doesn't mean it is magic. Time and resources would have solved it. The heads behind Jet Alone were the only ones who weren't completely full of shit.

>lets put mentally fucked up children inside of giant cloned humanoids
>cloned humanoids that contain the souls of their dead mothers
>lol Jet Alone is stupid guys
>>
>>124902124
It's not like they had unlimited amounts of time to figure out the AT field problem. Angels were fucking shit up NOW, and the only way to stop them was the deranged children method.
>>
>>124901364
It might be non-canon, but I do like the idea of humanity building some massive, impractical, nuclear powered robot that just beats the magical space angels with a hammer until they're dead.

Kind of like Pacific Rim, I guess.
>>
>>124901935
No, it's just used to better kill an Angel. The Eva itself must neutralize the Angel's AT field with its own first.
>>124901735
Okay, so now the Jet Alone creators have to figure out an AT field, research into souls, and how to neutralize AT fields without just using brute strength. All this very rapidly.
>>
>>124901977
I guess that is true, yeah, though I would still prefer having a power cable. You can sit in water all you would like, but that angel is headed for NERV HQ. Unless they built a moat.
>>
>>124902184
It is heavily implied multiple times that both Seele and Nerv do things behind the scenes to provoke or accelerate angel attacks to fit a certain timeline.
The whole circumstance, the stress it placed on the pilots, all of that was planned out to get Shinji's ego to the breaking point inside of unit01. Its all part of their instrumentality plan, and if they weren't controlling things theres no reason to assume angle attacks would have happened at the same pace.
>>
Why bother with legs when wheels and tracks are faster, more efficient, cheaper, easier to maintain, distribute weight better, are easier to build around, offer greater stability, and require less power to run? Fucking dumb design if you ask me. More mechs should be tank-centaur looking motherfuckers. Much more practical.
>>
>>124902124
>Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.
>That doesn't mean it is magic.

Except it literally is magic
>>
>>124902339
They don't do shit like "provoking" the Angels. They just know when they'll attack because of the Dead Sea Scrolls. Shinji was also not part of the initial plan except as another pilot.
>>
>>124902124
>Time and resources would have solved it.

time and resources would have found out that they needed to break into nerv

Time and resources inside nerv would have told them that AT fields are LITERALLY magic and can't be replicated with faggot ass humin bean technology

and finally with Time and resources given that they actually didn't abandon the earth because angels fucked over the planet already, they would have realized that sending kids into biomechanical organisms with souls that respond only too these specific children are they only feasable hope left to protect the 6 million inhabitants of earth, most of which are wounded, born as orphans, or born into 3rd world countries simply because the angels "missed" their house during first impact.


you ass dick faggot
