  1. What is the capacity of each gunpod used. I mean I remember the VF-1's GU-11 Gunpod only stored around 200 bullets. And when you compare that to the VF-25 carrying a super pack with more than 200 missiles, it seems that the missiles outnumber the bullets now
  2. Can pilots still exit the VF in Battroid mode for modern valkyries?
  3. I think most of us wants that balance. The TV series did make Walkure really popular. Which I fear they maybe selling the music more than anything as I have noticed a Walkure concert a few weeks after the opening of the movie in 2018. I'd like to see more battroid battles. Some may say this is because they are in the atmosphere which is why they use the fighter mode often but if we look at M+, it was done nicely.
  4. It also reminded me a lot of the GI Joe Battles in the 80's where two squadrons get pitted together and no one gets hurt at the end of each episode. And transforming in Battroid has been a rarity in the series. I guess the focus here is more on the Walkure and less on the Delta Squadron
  5. Wait, how does the VF-19F and VF-19S come into play? If the stunt that Isamu and Guld did in 2040 restricted the arms sales, are the F and S Excaliburs in Macross 7 Monkey Models as well?
  6. Any specifications of the Macross Elysion? I just read it was just half a Macross Class Ship. It's kinda weird though that while I was watching the last battle, it looks like it was just the size of the quarter.
  7. This are the Armaments I got from the Gundam Wiki for the Heavy Arms: Fixed: 2 x Vulcan Gun 2 x Machine Cannon 6 x Homing Missile (44 x in EW ver) 24 x Micro Missile (52 x in EW ver) 2 x Chest Gatling Cannon Army Knife Beam Saber Igel Armament (EW ver) - Two large missile pods on each shoulder, two small pods on each leg, and a pair of treads attached to the legs for better ground mobility. Handheld: Beam Gatling Gun And this are the Armaments I got from the M3 for the VF-25S APS-25A/MF25 Armored Messiah: Guns: 2 x fixed Mauler RÖV-127C coaxial 12.7mm beam guns (mounted center dorsal section in Fighter/GERWALK mode, becomes head turret in Battroid mode) 1 x Howard GU-17A new model 5-barrel 58mm gatling gun pod with retractable cover to provide air cooling for the barrels (mounted ventral fuselage in Fighter mode, in arm manipulator for GERWALK/Battroid modes) 1 x standard bulletproof (anti-projectile) shield (mounted center rear dorsal fuselage in Fighter mode, mounted on arm in GERWALK/Battroid modes); the shield is composed of the enhanced energy conversion armor used in the APS-25A/MF25 Armored Pack 2 x Remington ES-25A 25mm high-speed machine guns or 2 x Mauler RÖV-25 25mm beam machine guns (mounted left/right of intakes in Fighter/GERWALK mode, on rotating hip mounts in Battroid mode) 1 x Ka-Bar OTEC AK/VF-M9 Assault Knife, 1.65m, super strong material reinforced by pin-point barrier system (mounted under left arm shield block) 1 x pin-point barrier system 4 x armored heat sinks (mounted two each on the right and left engines pods; includes built-in Phased array radar) 2 x Hachishuu Heavy Industries C-207 high-capacity capacitors to power beam guns, energy conversion armor and pin-point barrier system (mounted one inside frontal section of each booster pod) 4 x RÖV-22 22mm beam machineguns 2 x Otto/Sentinel 57mm anti-warship anti-air rapid-fire swiveling beam turrets with option of autonomous fire (capacitors mounted inside APS-25A/MF25 Armored pack) Bombs & Missiles: 116 micro-missiles in 2 x HMM-5A Mobile Remington micro-missile CIWS launcher pods featuring 2 x micro-missile launcher pods each (40 mounted in two CIWS torso launcher pods; 76 mounted in two CIWS shoulder launcher pods) 128 micro-missiles in 4 x Remington Close-Range Micro-Missile Launcher Pods, Double-Loaded Type (64 mounted in four leg launchers; each launcher holds 2 loads of missiles for a total of 128 micro-missiles) 30 x 200mm anti-armor high-initial velocity rockets in 2 x Howard 15-tube launcher pods (mounted outboard in coverless launchers) 4 x outboard hardpoints for 4-8 large-size anti-ship reaction missiles The Armored Messiah has at least 274 missiles... Hehehehe!
  8. It's still in English, not Tagalog. But they were dubbed by Filipinos. We never dubbed in tagalog until Yu Yu Hakusho was renamed into Ghost Fighter here. And it was weird. Haha!
  9. Well most of the lead characters were teens. I think it was just the art style in the 70's and 80s just made them look older. Like Misa. If you watched it, how old would you think she would be? She was 19 in the Series. Hikaru and Max were 16. Most of the Art Styles now focuses on the kawaii, the moeblob and all that stuff..
  10. There was even a thread for this... I don't know if there is still existing footage online, but I doubt it. And it wasn't Robotech. It was aired on sundays around 5:30pm, and Misa was Misa, I think I learned of "Lisa Hayes" when there was already the internet. Haha!
  11. Well I think they all acted negatively to it. I mean the spiritia that was being generated by Basara is making them actually uncomfortable. I think the spiritia is making them too ecstatic which is why Gavil shriveling up is kinda questionable.
  12. Given that the Zentradi and the Supervision Army were fighting almost forever, how old do you think is the Alien Star Ship that crashed into earth? And do you think that the technology made by protoculture has been surpassed as of 2067?
  13. What is the difference between VF-19ADVANCE and the VF-19EF/A. I have seen both models sporting Isamu Colors and mentioning Macross Frontier Sayounara no Tsubasa. The ADVANCE was made by Bandai and the EF/A by Hasegawa. Which version was in the OVA?
  14. I did not include the head lasers as they didn't behave like the other beam weaponry as they fired a continuous stream (except in two instances in Macross Zero and in DYRL). And I also think they were used short range. Well beam weapons will also drain your power supply, which was shown in other anime. I don't think Macross has shown a Valkyrie that is low in power. Probably because most units get blown up before they lose all their power I guess. Speaking of beam weapons, it's weird that the MC-17A which is a gatling gun can be outfitted with a beam cartridge that fires only one shot.
  15. Another question. Beam Technology. Ever since they Developed the VF-4, they have been using Beam Guns. How effective/ineffective were they since the projectile gunpod was still the weapon of choice until the VF-27 and YF-29 came with beam rifles. Here are the Valkyries that use beam weapons Fixed small-bore forward laser guns (VF-17) Mauler RÖV-25 25mm beam machine guns (VF-25) Mauler REB-22 beam cannons (VF-171) Erikon AAB-7B beam cannons (VF-171) Fixed internal laser cannons (VF-19) Mauler REB-22 internal converging energy cannons (VF-22) Mauler ROV-25 22mm beam gun turret (VF-9)
  16. So how about the leak that Kakizaki was experiencing or that Hayate was losing propellant?
  17. If you count versatility it would be the VF-25 You can outfit it with three FAST packs as needed. Alto's VF-25 normally uses a Super Pack but he was authorized to equip it with the Armor Pack for heavier battles. - Super Pack - Armor Pack - Tornado Pack Also as a squadron you have a configuration where two can be fighter/bombers, then you have a long range sniper and then you have a recon unit to alert you of incoming enemies as well as for electronic warfare.
  18. Since in the Macross Universe we are using Thermonuclear Turbine Engines, I want to confirm the following. Does it use two sources? It burns the propellant for travel and nuclear matter for everything else. And during the time of Macross Zero, the Valkyrie is totally powered by the Aircraft Fuel burned by the Standard Engines? Do we have an explanation for that in any Macross Mecha Manual?
  19. Macross is more light hearted than Gundam.... In Gundam, I saw Characters Cry out in Rage. There was no KIIIIIIIIIIRRRRRA!!!! ATTTTRRUUUUUUN! We don't see emo Characters like Io Fleming who gets angry everytime he can't beat Daryl and grunts when he misses his targets. I think Alto is the most emo we have seen and it was light compared. Even Guld isn't as angry as most of the Gundam protagonists that I have watched.
  20. I talked to Jay about it, and surprisingly they paid for it. And he said he was donating it to charity. Hehehe... Sigh, And he even had his photobook Geekology signed by Kawamori-sensei himself. I guess it is to be expected. I'm from the Philippines, and they forced the R series here as well. I did get a chance to watch a weird Macross version where Misa was Misa, Hikaru was Rick and Minmei was named... Maria (Hahaha!) way back 1983 or 1984. Good thing the first thing I did when I was assigned to Japan was rewatching the whole 36 episodes. And I chose Macross over Voltes V, which is very very popular where I am from
