wow that rendering of an mp blitz looks great. not really into the color though, i still prefer the black. reminds me of good ol gundam deathscythe.

in terms of invisible battles yes, bad for visuals and drama but a more realistic feel to warfare since a lot of action nowadays happens BVR. but i would hope that the friendlies have some sort of IFF or a means of sub-visual identification in order to not blast their own teammates. but all stealth all the time wont be too much of an issue. maybe more stealth but not total stealth. theres always a way to defeat it. much like how you would never see a b-2 operate in a thunderstorm. dead giveaway right there

Emilio looks like the twin sword-wielding guy from Samurai 7 with shorter hair while i totally expected "Dana" to be a female...

I like that mp blitz rendering too,though a truly stealthy MP suit does exist...the Dark Dagger L.It has proven highly effective and managed to infiltrate and blow up a ZAFT port without taking casualties.

Well he doesn't have Kyozou's ultrasuper-perm, but I can see some resemblance there. Let's just hope he doesn't meet a similar end as Kyozou did (although it was very funny). :P They look typically evil to be PP pilots.

I'm rooting for them PP pilots.For some reason those stinking Martians really get on my nerves.Maybe because i still can't accept them having so much technology for a backwater.The Acidalium,Delta,Turn Delta,Guardshell...eewl

Kyouzou's death was quite lame.At least robot guy went down like a man.

backwater or not, if nobody pays attention to you its that much easier to buy your time towards supercharging your forces. a lot like what nazi germany did during their mostly secret buildup to world war ii.

Well, their entire population are Coordinators, and they use a variation of the Destiny Plan (or rather, the Destiny Plan is a variation of their own civilisation, Durandal the thief!), which probably makes them pretty efficient. They had a lot of help from Lowe as well (hence the color schemes of their mobile suits).

Here's an MP Blitz design I made for a SEED Remake RPG awhile back... It's a shame it went down the dumps... it was well thought out and had some darn good artists working for it. D:.

Blitz Dagger

I'd definitely be able to design a better one now... but with laziness and all, it ain't gonna happen. I deemed it good enough to be considered "official" amongst my other frankens, so it's listed in my fan art topic.

same in the ZOE universe

Mars based force of BAHRAM managed to build suits which completly overwelmed the earth forces with just accsess to Metatron and some secrecy.

You mean orbital frames, and there were other reasons why BAHRAM overwhelmed the UNSF, but that's for another thread. That and I wouldn't call Vascilia backwater.

And as for Mars being "backwater", where did that come from? From looking over the flashbacks to the Martian colonies in Delta Astray, they seem to have the most advanced technology available to man, probably better than even what ZAFT has. I'd liken them more to the Moonrace in Turn A Gundam in terms of development than things that follow the description of "backwater".

well maybe we should refer to it as backwater, maybe its more like low profile. "the most dangerous enemy is the one you dont see coming." not sure where that came from but i kno i didnt make it up.

Yeah,by backwater i figured they're this low profile people who should've stayed on Mars.It's a pseudo Deus ExMachina when all you've got in Seed,Destiny and Astray are the Earth Sphere conflicts then the Martians suddenly come in with ultra high-tech equipment and decide to off Phantom Pain.They should've instead featured the PP's as the anti-hero protagonists fighting against ZAFT.Besides,i am of the opinion that Strike Noir,Blu Duel and Verde Buster should really get alot more screentime/mangatime.

Unless,they're planning the next Seed series to heavily feature a Martian army in an Earth vs Mars conflict with battles the scale of Jachin Due.Awesome!

Decide to off Phantom Pain? WTH? PP attacked them time and time again. Not once have the Martians started a fight with them. The Martians are simply fighting to stay alive. Even after their command structure is gone Emilio and Dana continue to try and kill them. Theres no way to look at them but as antagonists.
