Considering the basic specs of the AC Mechs, they have
very tactical uses.

It's only that thier designs sometimes get, rather,
unfunctional. I mean, most gundams have red chins, the
V thingy on thier heads but huge angel wings?! (not to
forget, the Wing Zero Custom is capable of molting ^_^
-don't nag me, I know that its only symbolical...).
But honestly, I know that the deathscythe's mantle (or
wings) serves as it sheild, but doesn't it get kinda
tacky when its compared to UC mechs (V2 assault buster
is buffed but not tacky). Then again, why lose the
attitude, half the fun I get out of watching Wing is
the way they pose thier mechs in battle.

Anyway, back to Leslie's topic...
The DeathsScythe is a perfect recon unit, why? -ACTIVE
CLOAK! The H-Arms would be a perfect attack unit on a
small area (outposts and stuff) with the payload it
carries, its bound to do serious damage in a very
small amount of time (imagine having all those micro
missiles heading right at you...). The Wing is perfect
for knocking out single targets from a very vast
distance. What's lacking? Better pilots. Get Amuro in
a pscychoframe fitted Wing0-custom and that would be
dangerous (feather funnels? -make use of the molt!).

Here's an off-off topic, despite Zechs ripping off
Char, at least the Tallgeese ain't red... (but the
Epyon is!)

I thought the Virgo was made of Neo Titanum? -then
again, that is STILL expensive... Treize is a bad
bussinessman. Unlike Char, who bought the Axis for a
really nice bargain.

Niether one of the three would move, them pilots will
be too busy figuring out the manual.

Something more stupid?
-Dumon Cashew (of G Gundam) and Heero Yuy (Gundam W)
square off in each other's mechs. Dumon doesn't know
what to do in a cockpit and Heero would be looking for
one. ^_^
