Okay thanks for having a look anyway, maybe I'll have to check out other sources on the web.

Nothing yet. Though, from what I know, Trans-Am is a feature from GN Drives; 0 Gundam might be able to pull it off.

I'm probably missing something but can anyone tell me where to actually start watching the Gundam animes?

I've seen bits and pieces of Gundam Wing on CN when I was younger and I've just watched Mobile Suit Gundam F91 and my mecha itch needs further satisfying.

Do a Google search or buy the DVDs. That may sound callous but you could get banned for asking and we could get banned for telling you.

I'm not asking for torrents, mate.

I'm asking for a chronological order in which to watch the shows.

Ah, that I can help with.

For UC:

Mobile Suit Gundam
The 08th MS Team
Gundam 0080
Gundam 0083
Zeta Gundam
Gundam ZZ
Char's Counterattack
Gundam Unicorn (though it's still airing)
Gundam F91
Victory Gundam

For AU:

G-Gundam, Gundam Wing, After War Gundam X, Turn A Gundam, Gundam SEED, and Gundam 00 can be watched in any order you want. Endless Waltz is the finale of Gundam Wing, Gundam SEED Destiny is the sequel series to Gundam SEED, and A Wakening of the Trailblazer wraps up Gundam 00.

Cheers, mate.

So F91 was one of the last of the UC saga... Whoops. Haha.

Actually F91 and Victory are set so far apart from the others (and each other, really) that they can be viewed independently.

Theoretically it can. Under the assumption that the system was unlocked (which 0 Gundam never had save for the end of S2) , it may be able to.

There are two possible problems though. First of all is the particle volume and pressure rate. Trans Am handles these at high levels so it's possible the frame may not be able to handle it and since TA has never been done on a 1st Generation machine, it's hard to tell the results especially when the 0 Gundam is already Inefficient in it's particle handling . But case in point is the 00 Gundam in which case ithe TA works but after awhile the whole machine fails due to particl ovelowr of the frame not being able to handle the large output of it's powerplant. It's just a bit of unknown for the 0 Gundam being an archaic machine in which case none of the same generation has been tested.

The other problem from a different angle is the lack of Condensers. The HG 0 Gundam manual mentions that the beam gun takes it's particles directly from the GN Drive, which suggests that the machines have no intermediatery body Condensers and since the TA of single Drive suits rely more on Condenser storage than pure increase in poweplant output for the paricles in TA, there's a chance it may not be able to TA very effectively. Both scenarios present potential hinderenv to 0 Gundam TA although we dot know for sure since we have no hard data on any scenarios involving an 0 Gundam TA

So yeah, it can theoretically do it but there may be potential problems or hinderences. We just don't know whether these potential hinderences may prevent it without any real data. If only we can take 0 Gundam and try it out for ourselves >__>

To be honest, I don't think the 0 Gundam's frame can withstand Trans-Am. The whole thing was a barely working prototype.

Actually most of the particles would probably just be emitted by the GN Drive.

That's even worse. Look at how many GNP that thing was expelling to keep itself under safe control.

If Trans-Am came in, it'd probably overload and blow the hell up.

I thought that was an intentional design feature that was rejected for being too inefficient?

Nope, the 0 Gundam's GN Drive was giving out so much particles because it was too much for the frame.

It's a feature rejected/not to be used for succeeding generations of Gundam Mobile Suit.

It's essentially a pretty inefficient drive chassis system to begin with. Bu my personaly worry for it is TA is not only it's Drive Chassis bit the archaic mechanics of the suit in general and whether it could handle all the powerful state of TA. The 2nd and 3rd Gemeration just happened to be strong enough, even though they weren't predesigned with TA in mind.

Being the purest Gundam prototype, it may not be able to handle it but I emphasize on the word "may", so it still possibly can just that we are not so sure without any actual data.

Colony Drop

Some events in several Gundam series included massive objects being dropped onto Earth. How long did those objects took before they reached Earth?

Colony from One Year War = ?
Colony from Stardust Memory = ?
Axis from Char's Counter Attack = ?
Junius 7 from Seed Destiny = ?

Feel free to add to if I missed something.

I have a similar question. How long did the events of Char's Counterattack and F91 last?

Char's Counterattack gave the feel of about a month. Not sure about F91.

This is my request for a topic.

Lets get cracken! Before I start with my question, I have tried to google this, and used several different names(variations) to try and find even a ball park guess.
In UC0079, during the One Year War, how many people died ? Both sides, preferably, though if there are any numbers to be had at all I would be happy to know.

In Gundam Wing, Treize cites 99,822 people have died for him (Just Him!), which, for fighting a war with as much conflict and violence in it 99k is not that much compared to something like the Somme Offensive(and as countries grow shouldn't militaries only get larger?)

I know gundam wing is a completely different universe, but is there anything citied for the numbers of the One Year War?
