While most Metal Gear Mecha Designs are little more than bad jokes in practical application, the Shagohod is a design that would not only work as intended but is in fact superior to current tread-only tank designs. Current military tech completely under-utilizes the drill-tread design and I dare any one of you fuckers to prove me wrong.

The Shagohod doesn't have conventional tank treads, dummy. The rear section of it is pretty much a hovercraft. There are no tank treads.
I feel like sand would just destroy the hull and propulsion mechanism over time

Not to mention going through sand would be incredibly slow.

And you really couldn't traverse anything else underground, it's too difficult.

>REX was a self-mobile launch platform capable of using its massive rail gun to launch a nuclear warhead contained projectile package with a low radar cross-section, and without the need for a rocket propulsion system, the launch event was also undetectable by satellite thermal imaging unlike the massive heat signature characteristic of ICBM launches. It could give any country in the world a first-strike capability that other nations would find hard to counter. This also exploited a specific loophole that existed in anti-nuke treaties, since projectiles fired from a rail gun were not technically ICBMs, so the START treaties imposing limitations on ballistic missiles did not apply.

You're an idiot. the START treaty not applying is literally (in the correct usage of the word) irrelevant to how countries would act if they found out.

ITT: Background robots, fighters, etc. that you liked but don't see as much love for. To put it in perspective, this is where you'd talk about loving the Gelgoog or Fly Manta rather than your Zaku or GM.

I really liked the Ottrich; they were ungainly and never did anything right except for when piloted by El Condor. Amongst the Walker Machines, they seemed the most like they were meant for work and digging for Blue Stone.
basically everything in Dougram that isn't Dougram
How did Dougram get away with John Cena-ing it's way through the show anyway?

You have low standards.
The show used to be better than this.
And there it is, the gachahue reveals himself.
No anon you see, it's not the same unless Maria is the one killing everything and being the main character
Every season except season 1 is shit. This is an objective fact. Geewunners know what's up.

>Getting angry over the Alvaaron not getting released

I have no idea how you can get so excited over something so perfunctory, obligatory, bland and NOTHING for a series villain. It is such a boring design to me.

It may as well just be a basic yellow GM with two silly wings.
What a missed opportunity to use the Superior Version
Wow I can't believe zero Americans post here
Regardless of possibility, I think people are starting to get sick of cash in sequels and mistakenly missed a good film.
It's a gaudy, golden, winged GM that turns into a giant beam-vomiting crab. I find it really hard to not like but I can understand why people might think it's bland. It is very, very fun to play in GV though.

Ross and that guy who was chief of Starfleet Security were alright. Paris's dad was, too, if you consider that he had to try to deal with someone who culminated in early Voyager Tom Paris.

The F-13 Excalibur it still the PEAK fighter of all sci fi related media
Why? Because he didn't want Confed to commit genocide on his race?
I got the DVD set of this show. It's pretty good, actually and ranks up there with Exo Squad as one of the best Western Sci-fi cartoons. It's pretty amazing too that they got Hamill, Wilson and Mc Dowell to voice their characters.

Oh, and it's a way better Wing commander prequel than that abortion of a movie.

I wish that was the reason. Instead IIRC there was some deleted scene that stated that Hobbes was just some fake personality and he was always a plant.
Which is weird. Since by the start of wing commander 3, he's not even useful. Hes just a pilot whos not really in high standing with anyone in high command. Hes stationed on a Carrier thats not really well regarded by many of the people in the fleet, including Colonel Blair, and no one on that carrier will even fly with him. What purpose does he serve as a plant at that point in time?

>Why don't you ever complain about that?

Trust me, capefags complain about that stuff far more than mecha fans do.
No. It's Alternate UC, just like Thunderbolt. You watch it for entertainment, but in no way does it supplant content from the original series.
>Oh my god what is it with western fans and their obsession with canon?

We literally fought intensely bloody wars over what parts of our holy books are canon.

/m/, what are your thoughts on the unicron trilogy? People seem to have very mixed opinions about it which i can see why but I personally dont find it to be that bad.
I feel that superlink wasnt too bad. I hated the dub tho. Ironhide and Hot Shot's voices are just unbearable... a lot of the dub was unbearable

He can fulfill the campaign promise he never made:

I just hope the future sets up better events.

I was worried this might attract normalfags into my hobbies, but I'm glad this shitfest shunned a lot of them away from ever touching the only thing I like in my pathetic life.
>gatekeeping this hard

Why must you stunt the growth of an interest/hobby so you can feel superior because your interests are obscure?

You're like one of those 40k fags that yell at little kids because he doesn't want his "muh lore" to be "tainted" or whatever.
It did not unsurprisingly.

Ok i rewatched fmp this past days and the similarities with gundam 00 is just too many

>Mithril and Celestial Being are both Private-Armed Organizations fighting to make the world a better place. They are also both said to be more technologically advanced than their competitors.
>Setsuna and Sousuke have similar pasts, both sandniggers too. They're also similar because of their oddness/awkwardness.
>Gauron is basically the FMP version of Ali Al-Saachez. They're both sneaky, witty, and love warfare, violence and bloodshed. They also have a past connection to the protagonist of the story. To top it all of, theyre almost unkillable.
>The Whispered is similar to the Innovators.
>Lockon is literally weber, sniper and a womanizer.
>mechas from both show can go invisible and has anti radar detection. De danaan and ptolemy can do this too. Ptolemy is basically space de danaan
>Basically same plot and story
>Pic related looks like fucking Aeolia shekelberg

Someone WAS scrubbing it but I don't know what happened. I remember because they said they weren't gonna do the movie because it didn't have plot importance so they got shit for not even having watched it and just assuming that.
Oh maybe that's why they stopped.
Didn't they also buy the whole DVD set?

Must be nice having money to burn
Do you think I could get a mp4 to put it on a USB and watch on my bluray player or is that asking too much
You could technically just do it yourself. Just download handbrake, get the settings right so it has the right profile and so it burns in the subs, and then let it run in the background.
