Bandai Drawing Data

Bandai Drawing Data

Translator's note: there are no notes nor descriptions of the various parts, only the name of the part. I'm only mentioning what I consider noteworthy in the following.

Pg 077 (Armour Pack)

Chest Armour: there are two nozzles at the front. These are most likely large counter-direction manoeuvring thrusters. Chest Armour Micro-Missile Launcher: 18 missiles per launcher

Pg 078 (Armour Pack)

Main Booster: 15 missiles per launcher

Pg 062

Pg 80 (Armour Pack) Leg Armour Micro-Missile Launcher: 25 missiles (top), 28 missiles (bottom)

Pg 081 (Armour Pack)

Leg Armour (Fighter Form from the front): looks like a single grenade on the back, behind the knee. Could be something else, but given that grenades are present on all other armour packs...

Pg 084 (Armour Pack)

Hip Armour:looks like a pair of single-shot missile launchers. Perhaps they are Grenade Crushers? There is a weapon port, but the inside of the armour doesn't have an entrance port. Also looks like there's a Beam Gun built-into the armour part, too.

Pg 087 (Armour Pack)

Shoulder Micro-Missile Launcher: 23 missiles

Pg 092: (Super Pack)

Leg Booster (outer face): Micro-Missile Launcher built into the top (outside knee - the detail is similar to the missile ports on the main boosters). Also, there is a panel line that suggests that a Weapon Pallet is built into the part.
