I've just seen the ep. Overall, I'm quite happy with how Yui and Yuuya have grown since the last few episodes ago, where I made a long post vis-a-vis their relationship. They're now talking to each other, instead of talking at each other, which makes all the difference in the world.

We also see that racism isn't just confined to the Yanks and Japs - the Kazakhs and Georgians of Latrova's Zhar Battalion are quite hateful towards ethnic Russians. And one has to wonder what's been going on there - the way they talk implies that this isn't the first time they've tossed unsuspecting girls off to be devoured. It's disturbing, but also highlights just how bad the world is becoming.

All in all, decent ep, I think. And I'm glad that Yuuya is finally showing some of that test pilot skills - he's able to look at that railgun sniper rifle and instantly see that while it fits with the idea of staying at range, it doesn't work at all with the Shiranui Second's concept at all, but he'll try to make it work anyway. And Yui is mature enough to admit her misgivings. It's totally different from Episodes 4 and 5, and I approve indeed.

Also, it never fails to amuse me how they have their own names for the unit; Heinmann calls it XFJ, Yui uses Shiranui Nigata, and Yuuya has 94 Second.

It's not a sniper rifle. It's a fully automatic weapon.

I just checked this link, and it seems more like a light machine gun.
/wiki/EML-99X_Electromagnetic_Induction_Launcher

Sounds good for Medium to long range, but I was wondering if it is possible to run out of cooling gas?

Well, Yuuya was distracted about Princess Yui round 03:56. The scenes involves Yui being carried by Yuuya (i.e. perhaps Yuuya thinking about Yui's quiet form and face) and Yui being red faced (i.e. maybe Yuuya thinking about Yui's mindset and recalling Yui's body form and face).

It's more than just bad....the Soviet territory essentially consists of Alaska and the thin strip of the Russian Far East that they're trying to hold.

also, it's like that tiny strip is the only thing keeping the betas in that side of the ocean, once/if that tiny strip of land is taken it will be the turn of the usa to be eaten.

Pretty crazy that the first railgun they create is a light machine gun. It would be easier by an order of magnitude or two to cool the barrel and rails of a railgun with a lower rate of fire.

Pity though that this world never developed airburst rounds. Why bother shooting through Destroyer armor when you can just go around it?

I wonder how many Soviets there are even left. I can't imagine Alaska being able to support more than a few million people unless you built up the infrastructure and had a constant supply of food from America.

Yeah but wait until Yui runs into "rivals" caught with Yuuya in easily misunderstood situations, I'll bet there will be plenty of shouting then. XD

Well, we Russians can build a massive amount of buildings when properly motivated.
And I think poor soviet peoples forced to ate synthetic food. It's tastes bad, but it can sustain lives of millions of peoples.

The first screen makes me think this show is really running on a shoestring budget. The kind that would make the Red Army's budget in the early 1990's (post-Soviet collapse) look like one fit for a Michael Bay blockbuster.

A railgun is not a weapon that uses electricity ? this means that you can put more energy than a normal bullet that uses gunpowder. The more energy you put in the bullet the better are the speed, range and penetration Ė that why the raingun rate of fire is very slow making them more like a sniper rifle than a machine gun
I donít know what is worse, seeing a burst railgun or seeing the guys killing the aliens face on. It would make far more sense if the railgun was used to snipe the laser class so the others mecha can be safely killing the others from the air like always.
