I feel a bit ashamed to ask you this, but are there any English translation of these images? I know /m/ is not a fan of Gundam SEED in the slightest, but these are very interesting on their own as military science fiction, regardless of being tied up to the fucking Cosmic Era.

Usually, when I have some Japanese text I want to know the gist of, I usually run it through Optical Character Recognition and Google Translate. It's way less than perfect, but it does the job of at least getting the idea. But this shit is handwritten: OCR flops miserably, especially with CJK text.

I found translations/summaries of a couple of them, but in Chinese. Nothing in English.

I shouldn't be surprised that the Guul sub-lifters are capable of carrying heavy units, but to also be able to transport a small boat is unexpected, to say the least.
>>
>>10971215
Funny thing is that I can't find that boat anywhere else in the artbooks.
>>
>>10971351
That's unusual. Most all ships and units in SEED should have appeared in their guidebooks.
>>

>>10970911
>>10970917

If they ever make another Seed, I hope they use these more often.
>>
>>10973169
Pity for Kimitoshi Yamane, he was grossly overqualified for SEED. These illustrations develop more of the setting than the piece of shit anime deserved.
>>
>>10977433
I'd like a prequel manga, using these designs. But it's ASTRAY EVERYTHING, so it's not going to happen.

More than just a prequel, I'd rather see a story set in the early days of the war, before the Earth Alliance had Gundams and had to hold the line with outdated designs. For instance (if the automated translation is correct) the gunships in >>10970948 are more like hover tanks than helicopters.
Like the UC Hardgraph manga, but set in the Cosmic Era.

However, as you said, all the SEED sidestories are more of that Chiba/Tokita Astray garbage.
>>
>>10970900
I still don't understand how can that helicopter stay in the air without a tail or some other control mechanism.

Translations, anyone?
>>
>>10978828
See on the top right picture, that has the arrow pointing to the vent on the nose? According to the text by the arrow, it's a stabilizer.

How well something like that would actually work I wouldn't know, but it seems plausible enough from a basic sci-fi vehicle perspective.
>>
>>10979914
It's probably aided by the thrusters in the back as well.

Now this is odd. It seems to me that this is, probably (and quite ironically), the only powered exoskeleton we've ever seen in Gundam. ML and Macross have them as well, but not Gundam.
>>
>>10982968

Is there a reason why this one has neither manipulators to hold weapons, nore armour to protect the pilot from spall and debris that'll certainly be filling the air whenever they pull out the sorta firepower required to take down BETAs at their usual engagement ranges?
>>
>>10978828
>I still don't understand how can that helicopter stay in the air without a tail or some other control mechanism.

Just needs a powerful enough gyroscope system to keep it balanced out and a collective pitch rotor for maneuvering. It just works better if helicopters have a tail to help with counter rotation.
>>
>>10983191
I think it is more of an ejection system for a pilot to bail out quickly and (somewhat) safely of a hostile area, rather than something to be used to engage BETA.

Apparently, this is the only appearance of the Guti in a manga. It doesn't even do anything.
>>
>>10970878
So, can we PLEASE get a translation of these images? Come on, guys, They're some of the few things worthwhile of Gundam SEED.
>>
>>10983240
>Just needs a powerful enough gyroscope system to keep it balanced
Then why don't we see any rotorcraft doing this?
>>
>>10983482

Yeah, they were outdated at that point already, because people had bigger robots that could fly.
>>
>>10987035
It seems that it's a new development distinct from full-fledged mobile suits, not something that was obsolete.
>>
>>10973118
This one is the odd one out. I'd believe that Yamane made these images as technological concepts: see how different are the designs compared to the anime lineart.
>>
>>10988164
It's likely they weren't even for Gundam SEED in the first place.
