That's not for sure, the human body is able to withstand an excess of 40G for a sustained period and over 120G for brief periods (a second or two, at most).

Even watched an Indy or F1 race? When those cars slam into the barriers and concrete walls and +300km/h (for F1) the drivers are subjected to about 120G and still immediately get out and walk away. 40G for more 30 seconds would certainly render you unconscious, but no one is going to floor it and just sit there without trying to stop the thing.

Yeah, not everyone can. And you are talking about experiancing high Gs for a microscopic ammount of impact time.


When we are talking about piloting G forces, which are high G forces for a long ammount of time.


Most pilots of fighter craft can't take high G turns or manuvers for very long before blacking out.

Some people have higher tollerances than others, but no one can take a 40G turn for more than a second before passing out.

Voluntarily: Colonel John Stapp in 1954 sustained 45.4 g in a rocket sled, while conducting research on the effects of human deceleration.

Involuntarily: Formula One race car driver David Purley sustained 179.8 g in 1977 when he decelerated from 107 mph (172 km/h) to 0 in a distance of 26 inches (66 cm) after his throttle got stuck wide open and he hit a wall.
Take it how you want it.

If I could pilot any MS, I'd choose a Gelgoog Jager. If I had to pick a Gundam, I'd go with the Nu.

The difference between that, high speed impact/deceleration and MS piloting is that the latter two are of the lateral variety while g'forces experienced in aircraft maneuvers are vertical.

Lateral Gs, unlike vertical Gs, don't prevent blood from flowing through the body and into the head so there less chance of a blackout or redout occuring.

I'm gonna say Freedom Gundam, Strike Gundam, Nu Gundam, F91, Epyon, and Wing Zero Custom as my choices. Not real big on mobile armors of any kind.

But I'd prefer the Gundam design I'm working on for my Gundam story. Combines different attributes from all the choices mentioned to some degree, without the overpowered, noob pwns everyone syndrome.

Ex-S, Dendrobium Orchis or Crossbone X-1 Kai Kai.

As for OT, Nightingale or Kämpfer. Maybe Messala, if I could take the speed.

hmm i dont seem to be the type of person to be good at multitasking so funnel MS are out of the picture. I'd pilot the destiny actually and make sure to put those wings of light (after images) to better use instead of just running in straight on like a retard

Yes, and while talking about Mobile Suits, The G forces should be considered as the vertical, Since it is fighting in a MS is more similar to fighting in a jet fighter, than simply driving across the ground at high speed

If I had a choice, I would pilot the Savior Gundam, Freedom Gundam, Mark II Gundam, Epyon, the Murasame, The DOM Trooper, and the Gaplant.

In most cases, the shows depict lateral Gs when the MS are turning. The only way to get pure virtical Gs would be to have the MS pull a tight turn with the feet of the MS pointed straight out. In space combat, unless turning as previously described, it will only be lateral Gs.

Gundam Mark II just because it's my most favorite mecha design in all of the anime I've seen. It's just so cool! Too bad it got outdated so fast. *sob*

Destiny Gundam for rounded-out weaponrywith great side-abilities.

V2 Gundam for high speed and the option of equipping lots of weaponry.

Nu gundam for good speed and fin funnels.

Zeta for transformation and high speed.

For a non-Gundam suit, I'd have to say the Sazabi. Great mobility even for its size and artillery, and funnels to boot.
