Is it possible to construct a real life Gundam that is actualy capable of warfare?

Gundams are just.. stupid. Can you say, biological weaponry? Genetic engineering? Those are more realistic and cost / kill efficient.

well they dont necessarily have to use a fusion reactor..like many in the seed/destiny universe..gundams just ran off battery power..so im guessing that the initial gundams would work off large amounts of battery power..until a fusion reactor is made compatible with it....speaking of fusion reactors..there is research currently going on..however the longest that the team of scientist have kept the fusion reactor running is about 2 sec..and the amount of energy required is tremendous to begin the fusion reaction...but then again..we may somehow find a away to harness some other form of energy..if we're able to harness the energy released in a nuclear bomb then thats almost just as a good as a fusion reactor


Battery power is rather ineffective for a mobile suit, the thing would have only a small run-time, seeing as there are a lot of systems that need some power feed. Fusion technology is, as of now, small, but so is anti-matter technology, and in time someone will figure out how to keep it going.

Nuclear fission is probable, except it will be difficult and very dangerous. Considering how big the Freedom's explosion was compared to a regular Zaku, there would be no room for error.

And part of a Gundam's worth is its beam weaponry, which theoretically can not be supplied by battery power (as per the plug-in system). Along with the requirement of harnessing Hydrogen-3, is some sort of reaction that converts it to plasma, through something that involves Fusion.

there is no place for that in this overpopulated......too cramped world... where would you place that?? space????like from gunxsword.
anyway..it'll just damage a lot of buildings....

but hey.....it's just possible though only a miniture one


yeah perhaps it can b stationed at like a space station?

GUNDAMS are so unpractical cuz they look like human... what waste of resources building the head, arms etc..


that doesnt make any sense...with the arms and head and stuff..it gives it more capabilities and can perform more tasks...u know wat i mean?
according to newtons law, the force F is equal to mg which is mass times gravity, if the arms and the head and those other "excessive" armaments were'nt there then the center of gravity well be waaaay offfff! and that wont b good


First of all you are the one not making any sense... without the head, the center of gravity will lower, thus granting the Gundam more balance and stability. Also, the head of the Gundam doesnt do much but make it look cool


ok well the head is prolly jsut for looks..imagine a gundam with no head...yikes
and ok i think i am making sense..lets say that u dont have arms it would b much more difficult to maintain a standing position let alone walking...so the same principle can b applied to gundams..the arms would give it more stability..and plus wat will it do without the arms?????

In Minovsky Physics, there's something about auto-balancers equipped into Mobile Suits that keep them upright like that.

And the heads are more useful than you think since they're the primary sensors (until the development of panoramic monitors).

they already have those......thier just advancing the technology furthur
wheras ther has not been any real attempt to build a gundam

Biological weaponry and Genetic engineering will really kill more in the future, and that's without them being used.

The science base of (Universal Century) Gundam. Most of its facts are gleaned from real world Physics and are all proved to be theoretically possible.

that is what explains how MS are possible is ues in the UC gundams to explain most of the tech http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minovsky_Physics

no offense to anyone but it would be costly and it would be super kool to have those roaming around but would u really want sumthin with that kind of destructive power? its like a WMD (weapon of mass destruction).

what makes you think we haven't already started going in that direction? Project Star Wars, Bionic clothing, etc.

they are weapons of mass destruction, the way they're used in the shows anyway.

A Gundam will just be like a giant tank.

All the genetic stuff will later cause more destruction just between the people with divided opinions. Just the information of it can cause more destruction than a beam rifle ever could (beam rifle is only projectile plasma that can kill, this genetic revolution will cause idea splits, disputes and whatnot that will pit people against people, dragging innocents into its wanton destruction).
