Too hopeless

Because unless you have groundbreaking technology, at least one or two step behind I.S., the final design would be a real robot, a master of none. This assuming I.S. allows robot construction to be practical and less maintenance-heavy, such as simplified frame or actuator.

So they might not bother about military robot, on the other hand, I could imagine about civilian mecha, complementing stuff such as forklift or dozer.

The only idiotic things about this is the lack of military power armor, since U.S. troops in Canon still use their peashooter against M(adoka) instead of heavier weapon with CHANCE to damage I.S. or at least slow it down.

I was thinking more for the civs yeah...

then there was the thought that a whole country's military resources are being funneled into choice machines. The idea bothers me that if they fund the IS so heavily, what would be left of the infantry and other facets of the military? Under budgeting?

If they are talking about military security, I don't think concentrating it on a handful of mecha is wise.

then again there was no canon statement that all resources of military are diverted to IS research and development

Knowing that the IS will kick its ass.

Will be shown in ST is two: working/civilian mecha and power armor. Those mecha are serving in the military, but in non-combat role most of the time (with some limited exception where they substitute IFV, NOT tanks)

No armed giant robots like Gundam or Armored Core, unless Tabane did it for the lulz.

Canon statement: I.S. development are expensive.

By this logic, less-wealthy country will have their military under-budgeted. This is why only major countries are mentioned most of the time, and USA, with the biggest ham and beef in their disposal, took a leading role in front of everyone else when it comes to I.S. development.

And yes, we already agree few hundred pages ago that if you put same resources and effort in I.S and conventional weapon, I.S.-oriented side WILL lose in battle of attrition, no excuse.

I rewatched the first episode of the anime and an idea struck me. What if a country actually stuck to the deal and decided to put IS research on priority two instead of one? I mean they still continue it but not in a way as frantic as other countries. Instead it decides to see if there is a way to legitimately increase the overall military power and the IS is designated as truly a sports machine. So that country's IS seriously has no lethal weaponry... as unlethal as possible anyway

Waste of resource.

It was crystal clear that I.S.-verse situation is similar to cold war, with I.S. = nukes + advanced military gadgets.

In this verse, the performance of their I.S. and quality of the Representatives is a portrayal of their military power. If a country is crazy enough to do that, well, tough luck with the national pride

Pretty much boils down to that.

It's even worse in TLR Stratos (mostly due to rule of funny), which boils down to "Which country's models is used by UN Space Force against alien invader?"

Yes, as said before United Nations has their own I.S. batch, since the total number of cores is 150% more than canon number, meaning that there's about 1300-1400 cores in existence instead of 460+.

I imagine the sports model IS would have equipment more fit for events than firepower but it's interesting because the performance with each equipment would be as is.

sword/axe/or similar bladed weaponry - toughness and handling over sharpness; still undergoes sharpening.

shield - minimalizing damage

gun - accuracy, precision and ease of handling over muzzle velocity.

so basically the rafael but much more specialized...

Gladiator IN SPACE

Though in this case, MORE muzzle velocities is desired, but LESS wide projectile is used instead. Similar to concept of most hypervelocity projectile weapon IRL be it superdense darts or ferromagnetic bullets. More velocity means less air interference and bullet drop as well as tighter MoA = better accuracy overall & further effective range.

When I imagine that kind of IS in combat with the canon cast 1v1 then somehow pushing it into a stalemate. The other none IS mecha charge in and take care of the infantry... huh

@ Box _ I meant other than the two psycho's.

@ Senpai - Is it ever stated how many chassis are produced? I find it hard to believe a corporation can get by on making those alone.

I Imagine at most 100 unit per mass-produced type, 50 being generous estimation.

And yes, bisexual Ichika is hardly shocking

So you're saying there's a corporation which makes 50-100 chassis for at most.......2-4 cores? Waste of resources.

What?

Military Industries works just like that.

Most of the money came from your own government (Military R&D Budget yo!), but if you're lucky, you can export the result of your research and get extra payment as result.

This is where 50-100 figure came from, most unit probably only have 1-10 copies of itself.

And I.S. undergo generation shift 3-4 years once, plus add-on packets and upgrades in-between, that's a lot of money circulating around your corporation.

And now you know why Dunois is throwing temper tantrum. A lot of resource simply stopped flowing in the moment they failed to do shit with G3 development.

I know the military makes boatloads of weapons, but that's like making dozens assault rifles when you only have 4 clips of ammo. What about the money that went into making the other assault rifles? They just going to get scrapped?

If Dunois did succeed in their 3rd gen unit. Did anyone write about that yet?
