Everyone's always talking about their most beloved weapons, but how about defensive systems?

Energy fields, physical shields, deflection systems all welcome, if it keeps an attack from melting your face it's fair game.

Did someone just say DEFENSE?

The best defenses are the ones that can be used for offense as well.

I always thought this thing was fucking cool for the Shinkiro. All the KMFs tended to just get more and more weapon systems, but when this fucker came on the scene, it was like a big fuck you to everyone. But that's just in the way of energy shields.

Motherfucking Alex's Chobham armor is one of the coolest sets of armor of all time for me. Just that plain military gray and bulky look. A lot of the Full Armor Gundam MSVs that have a similar look like that are awesome too, but they can't compete with the Alex.

It shocks me this tech didn't really go anywhere in the Wing universe, planet defensors were the shit.

I liked that it required an onboard autist to mash a keyboard in order to work. I have no idea what the fuck calculations a human could possibly be doing better than a computer but hey, it was a neat concept.

The holonic armour on the Zega units was sort of similar, but that was more of an always on thing, the co-pilot just dealt with balancing the energy used on shielding or weapons.

Goddamn its defense was bullshit.

Spoilers I guess if you haven't read the manga.
>Shield with thrusters and cameras

Such simple additions and it becomes so much more effective than any other UC shield. Until Banana's magic shield funnels of course.

Water Shield is probably the best Shield Weapon in classic Mega Man, was a while since i last marathoned the series, but i know i liked it back when i played, im pretty sure i disliked the Dust/Junk ones though.
Junk is the worst shield, but best stage track.

>needing a shield
>being hit at all
How the fuck did those little metal spinner shields in early 00 work? And the spinning rope shield from that Chinaman KMF in Geass.
A computer moves them into position at the right time to deflect rounds. It's like a physical pinpoint barrier that's fixed to a small coverage area
>How the fuck did those little metal spinner shields in early 00 work?
When the computer detects an incoming projectile, it rotates the rod to the right angle to intercept the shot. It can cover the same area as a solid shield with much less weight, which is important for relatively limited flying MS like the Flag.
The Nu's funnel barrier was pretty rad.

But the Unicorn had some pretty impressive defense too. Shield funnels and an I-Field? That's up there with the GP03 as far as defenses go.

Mazinkaiser is still where it's at. Can't stop Kabuto Kouji.
>Can't stop Kabuto Kouji.
What if I'm magma?

How did it help?

Mobility aid, could use the cameras to actually see what's in front of you without having to pop your main camera into the firing line, and you could basically do a rocket shield bash with it.

this thing had LAYERS of defenses.

I have yet to see this in action other than in G Gen. Does that shield actually fire a V-shaped laser?

That too. I was referring to the fact that it could be used to farm energy and ammo pellets.

It was a funny fight.
Floating moving shields like Lockon had in 00's season 2
Protecto shaaaade
Battle aura
Technically, it was two hits. First Garrod blocks one of his beam knife attacks with the Buster Rifle, it explodes and throws the suit into a building, then Garrod spams the vulcans.
Forgot the details, eh close enough.
>I liked that it required an onboard autist to mash a keyboard in order to work.

Yeah, that was a very neat. I don't think there's many mecha that have keyboard controls. Impractical as fuck, but it looked cool.

Not very /m/ related(one could argue with Chachamaru and the Chao saga it vaguely counts) but pic related was cool.
Alternately probably Minovsky stuff like that time in 0079 when the white base went between two mountains so the particles bounced off and made it shielded.
I've always liked the style of AEGIS-type systems. shield of bullets

And even if you manage to avoid that, good luck even scratching the paint with a direct attack.
Seeing it needing to do nothing but stand still to defeat the other gods was so satisfying.
