TTT Blog Update

Sorry about the major lack of update’s. Most of us have been busy with work and had little to no time to get around to updates. And now a word from the guy that started it all, Bazookafied!

Bulletin Board

All right, so we've passed a big milestone... Member 200 joined today (June 8th, 2006)! That’s an amazing feat for a still relatively new forum (less than a year old) yet of those 200 members, here's how stats go.

73 of our members have never posted
Over half of our members have posted under 5 posts
Only 26 members have posted over 50 posts

There is no such thing as a Part-Time Titan. Stay active! Promote this forum! Use our Wiki, use the resources, and use the moderating team here! This forum is great because of all the hard work that we've put in. Specifically, those (less than half this forum's member base) who have kept things going for us. There’s still time, there’s still something each of us can do!

Promote AoZ all you Full Time Titans!

Gundam Discussion

In our Gundam discussions, we have ongoing chatter about "Mobile Suit Gundam Seed C.E. 73 StarGazer". The topic can be found here. We also have updates on MS IGLOO which can be found here. And to finish up, a sort of humorous fact thread called "(Wes) Murphy's Laws of GunPla Modeling ". You can join in and read here.

Research and Development

As you know, we have been keeping up with the latest information concerning TTT Mechanics. Here are the Hot Topics you might be interested in joining and discussing.

RX-107 "Rosette" Enhanced Land Battle Form

The enhanced land battle form of the RX-107 "Rosette" is a ground combat form of the RX-107 used when the Murphy Team assaults Karaba's Kamchatka base. This form is equipped with option parts so that the RX-107 can perform high-speed combat on the ground, and is capable of high-speed hovering movement. The optional hovering skirt unit contains powerful thermonuclear jet engines whose thrust enables the machine to float. Unlike thermonuclear rockets that generate thrust by consuming propellant, these thermonuclear jets use the atmosphere as (fuel? propellant? the term is illegible here), and thus have the merit of reducing propellant consumption and extending the mission operating time.

Next we have and update on the Gaplant "Fiver Core-Unit.

Not much from the new topic, but with your help, I'm sure we'll be cluttered with discussions and information about this unit. To add to the discussion, click here.

Last in the line is the Aswan



This lineart shows us ALOT about the Aswan's capabilities. It appears to have a docking craft at the top of the bridge. Its tail can act as a boom to connect with large MS like the Bigwig that is shown and probably the other large TTT units like the Keehar, Dandelion, and Fiver. Because of its position on the bridge, the Aswan's cannons on the top have been moved forward. There are a few other structural differences we can see between the Alexandoria and the Aswan.

The Boom that connects the front of the bridge to the MS Hangar is slightly different. The Aswan's appears to have "wings", possibly just reinforcement, along the sides while the Alexandria's lacks these.

The rear of the Bridge on the Aswan is modified for MS docking as well as the docking craft that makes up the top portion of the bridge. The Alexandria simply has two smaller booms and no docking craft.

The Aswan's boosters on either side of the ship have additional turrets on the top. The Alexandria appears to only have one on the top of each one and one on each side.

The most notable is the MS Hangar at the front. The Alexandoria seems to have one big door for the hangar. However, the Aswan seems to have a less streamlined double door design. This may be just the different mechanical designer's style, but almost all of the proportions on the Aswan seem wider than the Alexandoria. The Bridge, the side thrusters, especially the MS launch and loading deck. Still, the launch deck of the Aswan is still heavily modified from its Alexandoria Cousin.

The original that we gathered this data from can be found here.

Well...I guess this is the end for this update. If we can, we will try to keep the blog updated as often as possible. Good bye for now, TTT Blog Staff.
