>>124900984 Its explicitly stated by someone in the episode that fully understanding AT fields was only a matter of time. They could have pulled it off. Jet Alone was destroyed because the Nerv's Evas and the mass produced units were needed for instrumentality, and losing funding would have thrown a monkey wrench in their plans.
If Jet Alone was never destroyed and received adequate funding the world could have continued without ever being fucked up by another impact. There are a finite number of angels, its a solvable problem.
>its explicitly stated by some dumb scientist who has every reason to be biased
AT fields are purely a soul-based thing. The people at NERV know this, which is why they knew Jet Alone was doomed from the start. It had nothing to do with rivalry, they were just trying to get humanity to stop wasting their resources on shit that would never work.
>>124900838 To create an AT field you need a soul, and you'd need to do it fast. There's only the positron rifle and Lance of Longinus for AT piercing, and the former isn't always feasible. To develop more methods in such a short period of time would be difficult. >>124901181 Yeah, because the Jet Alone creators don't realize what the hell an AT field is and what's needed to neutralize them. More likely, Jet Alone would have failed miserably and the Evas would have to clean up its mess.
>>124901498 >AT fields are purely a soul-based thing This is literally meaningless. Anything can be quantified. The Evas themselves meld souls together inside of the core plug, they obviously have a technical understanding of the fundamental concepts.
> The people at NERV know this, which is why they knew Jet Alone was doomed from the start. Every single thing you typed out is utter bullshit. Nerv wanted Jet Alone destroyed for the same reason Seele wanted it destroyed and it had nothing to do with the project's viability.
>>124901546 >. They could never reproduce them with a machine. Saying this ignores every thing in the Eva universe. Its nonsense.
>>124901471 That still really defeats the purpose. >our robot is so much better! look it doesn't even need an energy cable! >i-it does need a hose cooling the reactor so it doesn't explode and kill everyone instead but hey at least it's not an energy cable!
>>124900159 Wouldn't a JA unit with a functional reactor and the Lance of Longinus be capable of killing an Angel?
Obviously SEELE would never fund such a project as it doesn't help bring about Instrumentality, but even the cabals that rule the world can't account for the actions of heads of state that only *THINK* they rule the world, and the competing project had to be eliminated.
>>124901938 They're right though. AT fields were partially breached by N2 bombs, and completely breached by that photon sniper rifle that used all the power in Japan. As mystical as it might be, it can still be destroyed by conventional means.
>>124901938 Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic. That doesn't mean it is magic. Time and resources would have solved it. The heads behind Jet Alone were the only ones who weren't completely full of shit.
>lets put mentally fucked up children inside of giant cloned humanoids >cloned humanoids that contain the souls of their dead mothers >lol Jet Alone is stupid guys
>>124901364 It might be non-canon, but I do like the idea of humanity building some massive, impractical, nuclear powered robot that just beats the magical space angels with a hammer until they're dead.
>>124901935 No, it's just used to better kill an Angel. The Eva itself must neutralize the Angel's AT field with its own first. >>124901735 Okay, so now the Jet Alone creators have to figure out an AT field, research into souls, and how to neutralize AT fields without just using brute strength. All this very rapidly.
>>124902184 It is heavily implied multiple times that both Seele and Nerv do things behind the scenes to provoke or accelerate angel attacks to fit a certain timeline. The whole circumstance, the stress it placed on the pilots, all of that was planned out to get Shinji's ego to the breaking point inside of unit01. Its all part of their instrumentality plan, and if they weren't controlling things theres no reason to assume angle attacks would have happened at the same pace.
Why bother with legs when wheels and tracks are faster, more efficient, cheaper, easier to maintain, distribute weight better, are easier to build around, offer greater stability, and require less power to run? Fucking dumb design if you ask me. More mechs should be tank-centaur looking motherfuckers. Much more practical.
time and resources would have found out that they needed to break into nerv
Time and resources inside nerv would have told them that AT fields are LITERALLY magic and can't be replicated with faggot ass humin bean technology
and finally with Time and resources given that they actually didn't abandon the earth because angels fucked over the planet already, they would have realized that sending kids into biomechanical organisms with souls that respond only too these specific children are they only feasable hope left to protect the 6 million inhabitants of earth, most of which are wounded, born as orphans, or born into 3rd world countries simply because the angels "missed" their house during first impact.
you ass dick faggot
