Phoenix Standard 'Colors' by GundamMeister Phoenix Standard 'Colors' by GundamMeister
Boring but then there are not many other options which are deemed tasteful. I thought Gundam on the whole could use some toning down since the beginning and this is only another of many steps.

There's more to it than it looks though... see also [link] .

And a newer version here -> [link]

I agree with the whole toning down thing. It's hard to take a brightly colored suit seriously as a machine of war. This one looks deadly in a more realistic way. Not sure if I'm making sense but yeah!

You're making perfect sense.

i love how it has less armour than the usual gundams, over the years they have just gotten bulkier and way to ridiculous for a light wieght moveable battle suit

I like this limited palette a lot, probably even more than the usual overly coloured styled ones.
and I really like the light "blue print" things in the BG, real pro looking.
nice.

Would unit denominations be by the antennae type on the head, or some other marking on the body?

I'm not sure in what context you mean.

Well, in Gundam, a leader unit would have a communication antenna on its head to denote it on the field and relay orders with a stronger signal boost. I see a sort of rabbit ear on the head of the Phoenix on the left side which is why I asked.

I'm wondering too if they have any paint markings on them like unit markings, like an emblem for a squad or quick rank bars on the shoulders.

I'm not sure if you already know but the antenna is not just for carrier signals. Here [link] . and the other comment.

I understand your reasoning, though when concerning a Police Company, that makkes about as much sense as putting someones rank of a police car.

Yes certain pilots use certain 'suits, but when it comes down to it, anyone can use whichever mobile suit is available in the absence of a pilot at any given time (with proper clearance of course).

Besides, these 'ears' [link] scream "Major" or "General". Not Sargent.

Squad cars have Sergeant or Sheriff written either on the back or on a spot on the doors, but I see what you mean.

Thanks for pointing things out though, finally trying to really get in your story line so I just don't want to ask questions at random. I'll be sure to look through the entire gallery. And thanks for taking the time to explain too.

"Squad cars have Sergeant or Sheriff written either on the back or on a spot on the doors, but I see what you mean."

You see, I didn't know that. I've never really noticed with our Police up here in Portland. I might squeeze that in later. :shrug:

And also, asking questions is fine. It helps me to keep it straight too.

No problem, sometimes they have the squad car number on the roof too, so they can be seen from the helicopter during a chase.

I'm not sure about how other departments may do it, its the ones in San Diego distinguish themselves in different ways. School district officers have "Protecting our Future" for School Police. Of course, "To Protect and Serve" is the usual motto, and Sheriff or Sergeant might have it near the hood on the side body of the car, on the front door or just behind the rear passenger door. They might also sport different lights and more antenna, or even just ride unmarked.

If you add yellow color on this one, it'll gives a burning look when in over clocking state

That an urban paintjob? Or is it the trademark 'white mobile suit' gig?

Urban paint job. It was that or the standard police blue or black... but at the equator, it won't do anyone any good. Tyrrhenum City and the immediate region are sub tropical for a good part of the Martian year.

That should help with finding cover behind buildings and obviously, blending in.

Later. Besides, using the system as a stealth device is not an effective concept in of its self. Vibrations or heat can give away your position when you're in excess of 16 meters tall.

It will serve in this respect a little but will mostly be an aesthetic upgrade.
