I don't remember when they have spoken about this AS (novel or anime). We only know the name of the ARX-6 and that all of the ARX prior to the Arbalest were total failure.

Shouji Gatou only provided us with the names for ARX5 and upwards. Nobody ever said it started at '5'...just that the information for the most recent ARXes is around, possibly for the sole purpose (as a footnote, afterthought or mere anecdote for the story, probably) to say that all attempts to create a working ARX prototype failed before Take number 7, AKA Arbalest, reached (more or less) its completion and showed signs of long-awaited success.

The other ARXes were probably either a complete failure, were never fielded as operational unit (with or without the Lambda Driver testbeds and prototypes, if that's what the ARX programs were meant for) or uninteresting enough to be overlooked and not be given further thought. It's not like we truly need their names. A few only (and the most recent, please) will suffice. Moreover, since pretty much everything related to black technology is wreathed in shadows, it's normal for the information not to arise, especially if it's of no consequence (and even more so if, according to the aforementioned pieces of information, all previous ARXes were quickly trashcanned).

yeah, who in their RIGHT mind would announce the existance of past failures?
i can understand why they'd be swept under the rug.

Also, not all successive deployed machines have to have chronological numbering attached to them.
Intermittent projects which had be designated ARX-5 or something else, may never have progressed beyond the design phase and remained paper concepts, while the designs were being overtaken by newer concepts and configurations proceding under a different designation.

To my knowledge the X in ARX means experimental, with AR standing for Advanced/Armslave Research perhaps?

The ARX models that do not carry the standard M (Military) code that series produced armslaves have.
As such, they're much like the X-planes in the US military designation system.

If I remember correctly the ARX-1 to 5 have never gone beyond the paper concept. The ARX-6 was the first ARX to have a prototype but has never been usable. The ARX-7 was the first ARX fully functional but without the help of Bunny Morauta it was very hard to test/use it.

Question about Bunny:

IIRC, he died before the Arbalest's completion. How did he die?

We don't know how he died, everybody think thats he killed himself but nothing is sure.

The Arbalest was probably ready to be tested, we know that the Arbalest was on the TDD-1 for sometime before Sousuke used it for the first time.

with THIS in mind,

it makes me wonder what the Behemoth-I's capabilities are,

any pic references or color identification for this successor beast to the Behemoth?

(i bet the new Behemoths will be fleet footed and could run the worldwide marathon in under a day!)

An interesting question about Kurz and Kaname.

Well, I assume that most of you have seen the first season of FMP. Now, in Episode 6, something happened that I could not quite see the answer too.

Chidori is left alone with Kurz when Sagara is on he's mission to find gasoline, and make an message. In that time period, Kurz loses he's mind, probably very tired and somewhat confused, and grabs for Chidori. Not that unormal for someone like Kurz.

The next thing we know, is that he is laying in a way that suggests that Chidori punched him. Hard. So I just though, "Ah well, one could not expect less."

Now the bothersome thing: when they are discovered, and waiting for the enemy, something comes up. Kurz says: "I remember that the pretty heroine (Chidori) was very nice too the flirt too, right?" Then she makes an happy face.

An normal Chidori reaction would be an outburst of anger, and Kurz's face would probably have hurt alot.

Did something more happen between them, or was this just an glip/mistake from the authors? Since I really found that to be way mysterious.

Yeah, same here. Was just looking through all the seasons again, and started to get more and more annoyed. I would really love to get the answer, even though I susupect no-one have

They were speaking about a movie they saw (Chidori and kurz saw the movie, i dont think sousuke did) anywho three people are running away (from some bad guys of some sort to s. america or something like thate), and in the final scene they rush out from behind a barricade they have been pinned behind to meet the overwhelming amount of bad guys head on (thats how it ends, no denouement or any telling of how they got out of it if they did). They were reminiscing on how this situation mirrors there own, and they decide to rush out and go out guns blazing. Anywho Kurz seems to remember how the Female character was civil and nice to the playboy character (another name for a playboy character is a flirt). So she was smiling because of the contrast between what she did and what her "character" did (she just punched him), not because they were flirting - neither in the anime nor in the old movie.

But where did you get that information? I see nothing that makes that valid.

"So she was smiling because of the contrast between what she did and what her "character" did (she just punched him), not because they were flirting - neither in the anime nor in the old movie."

That, is one of the things I have thought of, but I have found absolutly no proof of this. How do you know that she smiled of the contrast?

Hmmm i guess there really is no proof, but somehow i rly remember thinking that. My point was that he wasnt saying anything offensive to her, like saying that she should be flirting with him, he was just pointing out how she was mean to him while in the movie the female was nice, maybe she found that humerous or was nervous cz they all thought at the time that they were about to die, or maybe she felt sorry for him a lil bit. It sure would help if there were some place we could read the first novel
