Fair enough, but you'd probably need to discard the existing Cold Climate Type and imagine a new one based on the GM Command. That actually sounds like a viable kitbash - I'm sure the backpacks must be interchangeable...1-4-4 wrote:And isn't that reason enough, if I'm discarding canon and deciding for myself what the machine represents?
Huh, can't say I'd ever thought about it! Are the proportions really that different? It's possible that the MSV style was influenced by the way Yas depicted it in the animation - after all, Yas did redesign a lot of the TV series mobile suits (notably the Dom and Gogg) to give them more interesting proportions.I've been curious lately about the early development of the Zaku design. As drawn by Okawara, I mean. Between 1979 and 1984 (MS-X, Skiure lineart, etc.) it took on a bunch of bulk in the legs.
Off the top of my head, I don't think I have any information on these, but I'll see what I can turn up.OYW Fan wrote:I've been wondering, about quite a number of things, one being Pegasus class ships, well one in particular, White Base Jr. Has there ever been any pictures or descriptions of it? I believe it's the only one that has never been explained so I was curious about it. Since we're on the topic of ships, I wanted to know if there is any information on Himalaya class ships? These aircraft carriers were known as "The Whale of the EF", so I'm wondering just how large they were and if they could carry MS if needed to?
The Augusta base is on the Clark Hill Reservoir, near Augusta, Georgia, and the Japanese sources claim that it remained behind Federation lines throughout the war. (Which requires us to radically redraw our maps of wartime North America!) This seems fairly close to the New Bern base mentioned in the Blue Destiny novels, though.This leads me to questions on EF bases. Where were the EFF installations on earth? Obviously I know of Jaburo, California Base, Belfast, and Torrington and their locations, and although I'm sure I've heard of others, they don't seem to be showing up in my attempts to uncover them. The only other two I've heard about were Augusta, which I'm guessing is in Maine, and New Bern, which Mark once told me about, the he believes is probably in North Carolina.
What else do we have? The MSV books claim that the Federation launched its North American counteroffensive from bases in Alaska and Panama, and that Operation Odessa was launched from Belfast, Ireland and Norrkoping, Sweden. (I think Entertainment Bible 39 has its own set of claims on this score.) Recently, there's been some mention of a major base in Madras, India, to which the Kojima Battalion is supposed to report, and in Rise From the Ashes the Federation has a bunch of larger Australian bases in addition to the insignificant backwater post at Torrington.
Let me get back to you on the other questions - gotta go!
