Hello ladies and gentlemen. As a fan of "Macross" of the universe, I have long been concerned about a difficult question (I apologize in advance for my English )... The symbol of the saga for a long time and deservedly became a transforming fighter "VF-1 Valkyrie", but a very promising idea of a new generation of combat (and not only) machine, for some reason, bypassed the attention of ground equipment ... In the original "Macross", ground robots are represented by numerous "Destroids", large bipedal with an extensive arsenal of mechanisms, but limited running performance ... Actually they puzzled me at first view - why, have are excellent variation`s fighters, they did not create ground equipment of this type, the same tanks, for example? I should note that the use of technology transformation would give the land a robotic technique many advantages, such as changing the height profile, the ability to use a wheeled platform for rapid movements on relatively flat terrain, the mode of transport for maximum compactness, combat flexibility and versatility humanoid form and more... Although, if you look at history, the "Macross Zero" contains real transformable submarines "Oktos" http://www.macross2.net/m3/macrosszero/octos.htm In "Macross 7 PLUS" is a variation technique used by the police, but against the general background of comedy happening they seem rather a joke ... In general, if you take the components of "Robotech", the original model of variational tanks there are ... "Spartan" - http://www.robotechresearch.com/rpg/mecha/sc/vht_1_hovertank/vht_1_hovertank.htm "Hoplite" - http://www.robotechresearch.com/rpg/mecha/ref/veritech/vht_2_hoplight/vht_2_hoplight.htm "Centaur" - http://www.robotechresearch.com/rpg/mecha/rdf/veritechs/centaur/VBT_Centaur.htm ... but originally belonging to another "universe" just does not correspond to the total number of techno-design in "Macross" As a result, there is a paradoxical situation where the "Macross" originally using convertible model was not able to create anything other than spectacular "Valkyrie", but the "Gundam" UC managed to create a very impressive transformer tank http://gundam.wikia.com/wiki/D-50C_Loto In my opinion, something similar to a series of "Terminus" or "MonSoono" (from "Eureka 7") as variational wheeled tanks, it would fit in the "Macross"... http://eurekaseven.wikia.com/wiki/Mon-soono http://www.mahq.net/mecha/eureka7/tr1/r505.htm (I already asked a similar question on "Mechatalk" - http://www.mechatalk.net/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=16578 - and exchange of views came out quite interesting, but I would like to know your opinion on this idea...)
