Gipsy Danger Vs Imperial Warlord Titan

Gipsy Danger Vs Imperial Warlord Titan

Suggested by PositiveAnion

For this match, we have Gipsy Danger from Pacific Rim going up against an Imperial Warlord Titan (Warhammer 40K)

The warlord has two titan power fists and two dual turbo lasers.

Gipsy Danger is, well, Gipsy Danger.

Let them fight!

Setting: Tokyo. Because why not destroy it another time?

Note- Yes I know that Pacific Rim was in Hong Kong, but traditionally giant monsters and robots come from and blow up Japan.

Who would win?

    I think that Gipsy will take it by virtue of maneuverability, and better familiarity with the cityscape.

    With the usual discrepancies regarding titan heights, regarding all but the highest (and least realistic) figures, Gipsy has a height advantage as well.

    But I don’t know, it’s questionable how Jaeger armor would react to Turbo Laser destructors and power fields, but Gipsy’s swords should carve up the titan if they can slice through Kaiju so easily.

    We have the absurd feat where Gipsy tanked a nuke underwater while being very near it. Those are some joints.

  3. Glutinous-Bicarbonate September 10, 2014 at 10:34 am -      #3

    Plus falling from the vaguely upper atmospheric region of the sky and landing unharmed, even after the beating it took from Otachi and Leatherback.

    OH HELLS YES TO THIS FIGHT!

    There’s only 2 known ways this fight can possibly be any better.

    One, Make sure it’s noted Tokyo and other cities in Japan are Evacuated beforehand.

    And Two, I wanna get non-lethally smacked around by a Love Goddess’s chest.

    First one can be done, second one’s got a snowball’s shot in Hell at happening but could be fun if it did.*

    ___

    Also, Internet Slowdown’s happening today, we better go and be more professional than most of us normally are.

    1.) (Not literally speaking of course.)

    Gipsy can take a punch that for sure.
    Does W-class Titan have any melee weapons?

  6. Glutinous-Bicarbonate September 10, 2014 at 11:12 am -      #6

    @Rookie
    Two Titan-sized power fists. I do believe OP hopes this devolves into a slug-out match.

    gipsy is toast. It could not hold up to a plasma destructor.

    Well golly gee willickers, it’s a good thing this Titan has no plasma weapons then!

    “Two Titan-sized power fists. I do believe OP hopes this devolves into a slug-out match.”

    But I though that Titan can only use either them or lasers, not together… Am I wrong?

    Some feats for W-class Titan from comics (“Titan”):

    Size:

    Can see for thirty kilometers in every direction (of course against simple sandstorm this does not help, so useless ability IMO):

    Oh cool, Hekate’s comic.

    Generally, the loadout wouldn’t be like this, no, but hell, it’s the scenario I guess.

    Yes, there are conflicting figures. Anything from the aforementioned thirty meters, to two hundred meters tall.

    Auspex are notoriously capable of being fouled by environment, yeah. But reactor signatures will probably be easy for both opponents to spot.

    Could well be taken as hyperbole, considering it does not go far in depth as to the methods, time required to do so (a day at most), and the previous state of the city before this razing and what exactly “raze” means here. Considering this is in an Ork Waaagh! the city could well have already been in quite some disrepair.

    Does show that once the voids fail (or they’re bypassed, as happens with Melee) the Titans can be dismantled quite quickly.

  11. Rookie September 10, 2014 at 11:44 am -      #11

    Actually this is why Titan will lose:

    I think this about sum this battle. Titan have no chance here. He is not fast enough.

  12. Glutinous-Bicarbonate September 10, 2014 at 11:53 am -      #12

    It is also a thing I’ve seen more than once where a Warlord is outmaneuvered and torn up by smaller enemies. Two such events come to mind from the Titanicus novel, in the downfall of the Warlords Nicomach Ignix (crippled by Warhounds and boarded by chaos Skitarii) and Teratos Titanicus (Gutted and left for dead by Warhound titan)

    Now consider an enemy mech that is bigger than the Warlord (unless we use the rather ridiculous 200 meters figure), FASTER than the Warlord, and may well start clubbing it over the head with a convenient tanker.

    No point in ruling it out just yet. Might be some supporters with arguments still.

  15. Sauroposeidon September 10, 2014 at 12:20 pm -      #15

    “Can see for thirty kilometers in every direction ”

    This is Tokyo. I don’t think anyone can see very far.

    “Yes, there are conflicting figures. Anything from the aforementioned thirty meters, to two hundred meters tall.”

    I suggest using the scaling idea I had for kaiju in this instance due to conflicting sizes. Since weights are unknown this makes things somewhat easier.

    Aren’t Warlords like really, really bad in melee? Like I don’t know if I’ve ever read of one winning a fight once something closed in on it. Then again they don’t usually get two fists either since that’d leave them horribly out gunned. Still.. they seem utterly helpless once you close in on them. Like AT-AT’s, all their fire power and armor is useless once one dude with a sword gets in close.. or in this case some mere monster that can’t tank even a single hit from them, judging from these comics.

    I would assume that Gipsy takes this, since the Titan has no way of seeing the Jaeger until it’s right on top of it. Unless it’s allowed to wade out in to Tokyo Bay to get out in the open. Is the bay out of bounds or in?

  16. Rookie September 10, 2014 at 12:20 pm -      #16

    @Glutinous-Bicarbonate

    “No point in ruling it out just yet. Might be some supporters with arguments still.”

    I am just giving my “vote” for Gipsy for now. I see no way how “four-handed” Titan can win. Bio Titan made dominated over him with ease. IMO Gipsy>Bio Titan.

    @Sauroposeidon

    “Aren’t Warlords like really, really bad in melee? Like I don’t know if I’ve ever read of one winning a fight once something closed in on it.”

    I think that you right. You can see his fight against Bio Titan above. Titan… not good at this.

  17. Sauroposeidon September 10, 2014 at 1:21 pm -      #17

    I was actually under the impression that it was the justification for how the might smaller and lightly armed tyranid bio-titans could accomplish anything against warlords or above. Them being crap at close range combat, that is. Although the comic depicts chaos demons, doesn’t it?

  18. Rookie September 10, 2014 at 1:29 pm -      #18

    @Sauroposeidon

    “Although the comic depicts chaos demons, doesn’t it?”

    Yes. And even Kaiju sized demons, which can take several Titans with one shot:

    i1329.photobucket.com/albums/w541/Listor3/Titan6_zps9e6b641b.png

    But each time something goes against Titans in melee, each time Titan lose or would lose but someone save it.

  19. OberHerr September 10, 2014 at 4:00 pm -      #19

    Titan fights generally last in the milliseconds, from what we get from them in Titianicus, which is probably the best book for how WH40k Titans deal with each other and similarly sized things. They can fight well outside of visual range if I recall correctly, have a shitton of sensors for that.

    Plus, they have shielding, and far superior main weapons. The nuke feat is dumbed down quite a bit by Gypsy’s distance from the nuke and it being underwater, which heavily decreases a nukes overall ability.

    Also, a little off topic, I recall someone, either Sauro or GB, saying that in a comic the first Kaiju in Pacific Rim took several nukes to kill.

    Why did a category IV Kaiju like Scunner get killed by one underwater?

  20. shurikan September 10, 2014 at 4:19 pm -      #20

    sorry folks. should have read the details.

  21. OberHerr September 10, 2014 at 4:44 pm -      #21

    Also, Titans consistently just shot through the buildings of the Hive in Titianicus, whenever someone hid behind cover.

    The two cases we see of Titans being beaten by faster foes, they we unable to engage them, with in the the case of Nicomach Ignix, it had been fighting straight for at least 48 hours, and was out of ammo, low on fuel, and needed repairs. I think it also had a shield problem. With the Teratos Titanicus, we really don’t know much honestly, but in the book its suggested that a Warlord SHOULD beat out any other Titan below them in combat, unless they are surprised outnumbered. Even in CQC, they should win.

    That is suppose to have a Bio-Titan in it? I’m just gonna go out on a limb and say that the author had no clue what he was writing about. The princeps of the Warlord Titans aren’t even in their tubes. Is there even a crew?

  22. Friendlysociopath September 10, 2014 at 5:15 pm -      #22

    Sooo, does Gipsy Danger have any ranged weapons?
    Cause WH40K lasers are not something to take lightly, especially in a city where it’s literally nothing but murder paths between buildings.

  23. shurikan September 10, 2014 at 5:35 pm -      #23

    Nah,gypsy danger lacks ranged weapons.

    Gipsy Danger’s plasma cannon.

  25. OberHerr September 10, 2014 at 9:38 pm -      #25

    The Plasma Cannon is basically a non-factor. It doesn’t have near the fire rate, nor the damage to hurt the Titan before the Titan tears Gypsy apart.

    Which is the basic problem. The Titan can easily sense Gypsy, and can just shoot around or through the buildings at it. Gypsy isn’t gonna be able to tank shots from the Lascannons, especially if they just go for the legs.

  26. pimpmage September 10, 2014 at 10:12 pm -      #26

    How tanky is the gyspy? What is stopping some point defense servitor on the warlord with a handheld lascannon from sniping the cockpit?

  27. OberHerr September 10, 2014 at 10:32 pm -      #27

    Or the Warlord itself from sniping the cockpit. Those things are scary accurate. One thing in WH40k I think, with some improvements and changes in design, would be a terror on our Modern Day Earths battlefield.

    Infantry vs. Titans isn’t even funny how much of a massacre it is.

  28. pimpmage September 10, 2014 at 10:40 pm -      #28

    I am assuming the warlord’s waist turn speed cant keep up with gypsy speed, but I may be wrong. If this is indeed the case, any point defense turrets can easily solo gypsy.

  29. OberHerr September 10, 2014 at 10:49 pm -      #29

    They keep up with most targets in front of them. And this is rapid fire switching from target to target. Like, millisecond switching. From what I gathered from Titanicus, they are only slow on the move, not on the draw or aiming. Not sure how it works, but its probably the same physics that allow Space Marines to have full range of movement with their arms while having Chinese cars strapped to their shoulders.

  30. pimpmage September 10, 2014 at 11:09 pm -      #30

    The thing is, 40k titans have never been featured in any sort of video. We don’t really have much to work with when showing move speeds and turn speeds. And I doubt someone will be able to pull some relevant numbers from any novels.

  31. Glutinous-Bicarbonate September 10, 2014 at 11:21 pm -      #31

    I believe there are speed feats in Mechanicum, regarding a Warlord stressing its reactor to dangerous levels for speed when racing home. I believe it gives a figure there, but I’d have to retrieve it.

  32. Glutinous-Bicarbonate September 10, 2014 at 11:38 pm -      #32

    Also @pimpmage
    Technically there’s a Warlord in the space marine game, but it spends all it’s featured time inside a huge building complex so would reasonable be moving slowly. If what we see is the upper or lower limit, impossible to know.

    And maybe a brief appearance of a Reaver in that old ass one with Commissar Holt.

  33. pimpmage September 10, 2014 at 11:43 pm -      #33

    I know there is a warhound clip in that scrapped 40k MMO trailer. But that thing is clearly like 50 meters tall lol.

  34. pimpmage September 10, 2014 at 11:53 pm -      #34

    Has anyone read the latet HH book? ‘Vengeful Spirit’? There is a huge explosion from a imperator class titan’s cores going nova. It goes into tons of specifics of how much damage it does in terms of distance effected, heat, etc.

  35. Sauroposeidon September 11, 2014 at 12:14 am -      #35

    “Why did a category IV Kaiju like Scunner get killed by one underwater?”

    Because nukes come with different yields. I’ve also heard Trespasser was very big, not a mere category I or II. I don’t know the specifics.

    “Sooo, does Gipsy Danger have any ranged weapons?”

    An unquantifiable plasma cannon that has never been used on anything that isn’t kaiju.

    “The Plasma Cannon is basically a non-factor. It doesn’t have near the fire rate, nor the damage to hurt the Titan before the Titan tears Gypsy apart.”

    We don’t know that. There is the instance of a warlord being downed from a lightning crashing in to its head. The plasma cannon had enough strength to pick up and throw Knife Head. It probably has enough kick to maybe decapitate the Warlord. But there’s no way to really know.

    “How tanky is the gyspy? What is stopping some point defense servitor on the warlord with a handheld lascannon from sniping the cockpit?”

    How the fuck have you not seen Pacific Rim yet? You are missing out dude. Go watch that movie. Now. You don’t get your nerd card back until you have. No. A guy holding a lascannon isn’t going to bring down a 70+ meter mecha that fights nuke eating kaiju.

    “They keep up with most targets in front of them. And this is rapid fire switching from target to target. Like, millisecond switching.”

    I have yet to see millisecond switching. Chances are their long range combat capabilities are what allow easy target shifting. It doesn’t take long to adjust your aiming when you only have to adjust a few degrees.

    “Infantry vs. Titans isn’t even funny how much of a massacre it is.”

    Which is odd since traditionally an anti-armor equipped infantry is armor’s worst nightmare. But then 40k is ass backwards on a lot of stuff.

  36. OberHerr September 11, 2014 at 12:35 am -      #36

    Well, its in the book Titanicus. I don’t have it on me, but its featured how fast the combat goes in the first battle they have. I think GB owns it. Plus, its not like Gypsy is an exceptionally hard target to hit. Its a massive goddamn robot. Sure, it moves kinda fast, but all it takes is a few hits. And the Warlord can fire that shit off like no ones business.

  37. Glutinous-Bicarbonate September 11, 2014 at 12:58 am -      #37

    Something I recall is when Princeps Kung slaves an entire Titan battle group to his MIU to target a single spot on a Chaos Imperator. The weight of the combined Manifold is agonizing and he nearly drives himself insane with the effort, so I don’t think it took him forever to aim all of those guns.

    At least I think it was Kung. Could have been Gearhart, but I can’t quite remember.

    Still isn’t much help here.

  38. OberHerr September 11, 2014 at 1:19 am -      #38

    It was Kung. Gearhart was away for that bit. That Imperator fight makes me wonder how the hell those things every fall. If I recall, it took about ten minutes of continuous fire, on one spot where the shields fell, to kill it. It still managed to wipe out several Warlord Titans in its death throes.

  39. OberHerr September 11, 2014 at 1:43 am -      #39

    Oh, side note here. I got Destiny, but have only played the first bit. Seems solid enough, but I haven’t really played much into it. I’ll try to get a review out in a week or so.

    Also, for those of you holding back on getting it due to waiting for a PS4 or Xbone, don’t. If you buy it digitally(as far as I know, this is the only way), you can download it for free on the Xbone or PS4. Same with progress and DLC.

    Just wanna followed this match but I don’t really have much to add… I heard pacific rim was getting a animated series.

  41. Sauroposeidon September 11, 2014 at 8:35 am -      #41

    “so I don’t think it took him forever to aim all of those guns.”

    I presume that Titans in general move a little bit slower than humans in general. Which is useless against anything nimble.

    “It was Kung. Gearhart was away for that bit. That Imperator fight makes me wonder how the hell those things every fall. If I recall, it took about ten minutes of continuous fire, on one spot where the shields fell, to kill it. It still managed to wipe out several Warlord Titans in its death throes.”

    While they’re not much bigger, they have more shields. Shields who’s useful feature isn’t how much they can take before going down but the fact that they can come back up. A layered defense like this can make things difficult. In a span of ten minutes several of the shields must have come back on once or twice and soaked up a considerable amount of fire power before going down again. Although the comics seems to universally ignore shields. Titan weapons at the warlord scale rip off whatever they hit on other titans, so even though it’s not much better armed, or better armed at all, as long as it can keep the shield cycle going and keep its aim true it can one shot a warlord any time it wants. Their armor seems paper-like compared to their shields, kind of like star trek ships. Probably because at the titan scale armor can’t keep up with weapons like it does on lower sized units. This fairly closely follows real life.

    It took forever to go down because even though they were shooting at the same spot, storm trooper accuracy comes in to play. We saw titans fighting each other in comics and they couldn’t land core shots half the time despite their sizes. They would just shear off arms or whatever else have you.

    I mean, the Imperator isn’t substantially bigger. Doesn’t have much more in the way of weapons. Shouldn’t have access to better void shield or armor technology.

    Then again, this might just be a case of PiS. Warlords are by and large the most common titan we see. They suffer from the cannon fodder effect all the god damn time to the point that it makes you wonder why they’re even feared. Either the Imperator could have been portrayed as being too powerful, or more than likely, the Warlords got dumbed down. Again. Because Games Workshop and its legion of writers like being mean to the poor design.

    Remind me, was the Titan a chaos titan? I recall a chaos enhanced imperator being crippled by a warlord self destructing on top of it. Then the core was destroyed by another using a power fist on it. Which to me says either titan weaponry are not as strong as people keep assuming (no, they don’t one shot cities. You guys are almost as bad as Gundam Wing fans are) or Imperators aren’t usually that durable.

    “Just wanna followed this match but I don’t really have much to add”

    Well on one side we have a slow ass mech which has been stripped of most of its ranged fire power in a setting that limits its range of fire and on the other we have a much more nimble mech armed with a plasma weapon which may or may not be useful against it, but more importantly,it has a sword that will be.

    On the side note, I want to ask, do you have any idea what mech or vehicle could be a fair challenge for:

  43. Neon Lord September 11, 2014 at 9:12 am -      #43

    That is an XV9 Hazard Battlesuit. And it does’t have many feats going for it afaik.

    As long as it’s armed with Fusion Cascades and its jetpack use is limited (i.e not allowed to just fly away), a UNSC Mantis from Halo or a Titan from Titanfall would seem fair.

    EDIT: Wait, the Patient Hunter story is about one of these:
    warhammer40k.wikia.com/wiki/XV104_Riptide_Battlesuit
    Which is on a different level altogether.

  44. Sauroposeidon September 11, 2014 at 10:06 am -      #44

    I have that story. If I recall it rapes everything it runs in to, including a baneblade. However, the story was written before it’s official release, so it doesn’t have the right weapons. Not sure how usable it is for feats. The Tau Codex has more fluff on it though. The Riptide is a little OP, as in I’d bet that out of ten battles, a Riptide would beat a Warlord each time.

  45. Sauroposeidon September 11, 2014 at 10:11 am -      #45

    I just realized that there’s a post on BankGamblingtopa quoting a huge section of the very short story. That is illegal. I strongly recommend that it is removed because if GW ever finds out about it, I assure you, Admin will hear about it.

  46. Kokiris September 11, 2014 at 10:54 pm -      #46

    I’m under the assumption that Gipsy has this. I’m just not convinced that the Warlord Titan has the speed to keep up with Gipsy, nor the armament to deal with Gipsy if it ambush’s it, which is pretty likely to occur in an environment such as this one. I want to also make the assumption that Gipsy can determine that it’s a machine as-well, and isn’t mistaking it’s power signature for a Kaiju or something of the like. I suppose it’s possible for the Warlords other armaments to slow Gipsy down, but we all have to take into consideration that they most likely don’t have a lot of Intel on each other. Gipsy is more likely to go straight into melee combat as fast as it can, facing an opponent of such magnitude. If Gispy can outmaneuver the Warlord, it should be able to slice it apart.

    “Gipsy is more likely to go straight into melee combat as fast as it can, facing an opponent of such magnitude. If Gispy can outmaneuver the Warlord, it should be able to slice it apart.”

    Here’s the thing though, they’re in Tokyo. It isn’t a wide open-space that you can just maneuver however you please. It’s a murder-hall; unless Gipsy wants to run through buildings- it will have to go along the roads, which gives the Warlord the perfect opportunity to take some shots at Gipsy.

  48. Kokiris September 11, 2014 at 11:57 pm -      #48

    I’m curious on how the Warlord will set up those shots, Gipsy has shown the potential to be able to act evasively if the need arises. Do you think it can move quickly enough or erratically enough to avoid getting hit by one of the Warlords attacks? This is a double edged sword for the Titan, this gives Gipsy extensive amounts of cover. Would that not cut down the velocity at which any of the Warlords projectile weaponry would travel? Would it effect things such as a melta or a lascannon?

    “Gipsy has shown the potential to be able to act evasively if the need arises. Do you think it can move quickly enough or erratically enough to avoid getting hit by one of the Warlords attacks?”

    Can the gipsy dodge lasers that travel at light speed?

    “Would it effect things such as a melta or a lascannon?”

    First of all, a lascannon is a an infantry weapon. This is a turbo laser. And the warlord is equipped with two double-barrelled weapon arms of these:

    Typically mounted in groups of two or three to inflict as much damage as possible, the weapon is best employed against other superheavy vehicles due to its long range and concentrated destructive power.
    Turbo-lasers are known to be very destructive to the surrounding environment, capable of penetrating through the ground down to the bedrock and leaving behind long gouges of fused earth. In urban environments their scorching emissions have shivered tiles off roofs and shattered windows at their passing, and an entire block-row of buildings can be leveled in one sweep of these weapons. Against lesser foes turbo-lasers have been known to cause infantry to ignite and evaporate almost instantly. Even passing just a few meters overhead will sear the meat off the bone of exposed troopers. Turbo-lasers will also punch right through the armour of Battle Tanks, tearing them in two and disintegrating them with a single shot. Imperial super-heavy tanks will also be destroyed by a single blast, though it may take scant seconds to melt through their frontal armour. However the Void Shields of even a Warhound Scout Titan allow it to survive multiple hits from a turbo-laser.

    And second, melta weaponry is pretty much a shotgun blast of super heated gas that vaporises targets. One shot of a titan sized melta at close range would slag half of the gipsy. But since the warlord is not equipped with those as per match rules, this is not an immediate stomp.

    After watching the gipsy danger fight three separate monsters, I gotta say that thing isn’t fast at all. It is quite agile seeing as it can recover from any sort of fall/roll/throw, but it’s walk/jog speed seems completely interchangeable to that of the warlord if they would be equal sized.

    According to the wiki, the Gipsy has a height of 79m. The warlord titans have been shown to be anywhere from 33m to 200m tall. (soo dumb, i know) Worst case scenerio for the gipsy, the warlord is max sized and probably impossible for the gipsy to kill.

  51. Kokiris September 12, 2014 at 12:52 am -      #51

    “Can the gipsy dodge lasers that travel at light speed?”

    No, I really don’t think it has the ability. But it does move freakishly fast for something of it’s size. My question is whether or not the Warlord Titan will be able to get a solid shot on Gipsy with all of the buildings in the way. I’m sure it could if Gipsy went bolting down a road straight at it. I just doubt that Gipsy would move in that manner to attack an opponent with obvious ranged capabilities. Whoever is piloting Gipsy I’d assume would be aware of the fact they are fighting another man made death machine, long ranged capabilities are to be expected from the Titan. Would Gipsy be aware of how defenseless it is against them, though? Probably not. I still stand with my statement that Gipsy would at least attempt to ambush the Warlord Titan.

    “First of all, a lascannon is a an infantry weapon. This is a turbo laser. And the warlord is equipped with two double-barrelled weapon arms of these”

    Impressive, your point has been proven. If given the opportunity, the Warlord would fire these babies at Gipsy, yes?

  52. pimpmage September 12, 2014 at 1:09 am -      #52

    Sure, but I think the spirit of the match was to have these two titans brawl it out with fists. I think that should be scenario 1. Scenario 2 could just be all out everything.

  53. Glutinous-Bicarbonate September 12, 2014 at 1:47 am -      #53

    Still is meaningless if Gispy runs circles around the Warlord, denying it a shot.

  54. Friendlysociopath September 12, 2014 at 2:20 am -      #54

    “Still is meaningless if Gispy runs circles around the Warlord, denying it a shot.”

    I know right? What with all the extreme wide-open space Tokyo has for running around in circles.

    “Sure, but I think the spirit of the match was to have these two titans brawl it out with fists. I think that should be scenario 1. Scenario 2 could just be all out everything.”

    I don’t think so, lasercannons were specifically mentioned and Gipsy does have a ranged weapon. If you’d like to separate them then ok but I don’t get the vibe that the point was to have them up-close.

    Oh hey, Pimpmage, I’ve been accused of being you, what gives?

  55. Glutinous-Bicarbonate September 12, 2014 at 2:30 am -      #55

    The streets are wide enough for Kaiju to move around, and the point is unless the Warlord can rotate around fast enough, Gipsy can pretty easily stay out of its line of fire. And once it gets into close quarters, I almost guarantee that it can’t bring its fists to bear quick enough to avoid being pummeled and torn up.

  56. pimpmage September 12, 2014 at 7:41 am -      #56

    “Oh hey, Pimpmage, I’ve been accused of being you, what gives?”

    Where at? Maybe is because we are just so damn good looking.

  57. pimpmage September 12, 2014 at 7:46 am -      #57

    What warlord size do we go with here? If we go with it’s largest size, that would ensure optimal efficiency on the part of the warlord. Or should we go with equal sized as the gipsy?

  58. Neon Lord September 12, 2014 at 7:59 am -      #58

    60m I think is the proper size

  59. pimpmage September 12, 2014 at 11:03 am -      #59

    Well, there is no standard size. I remember reading that 200m quote somewhere but I forgot the source. The wikis confirm it too. It has been brought up in countless other matches involving warlords too. So minimum height could be half that of the gipsy, and max could be almost 2.5x that of the gipsy. If we go by best feats and the most optimal version of the warlord, it would be 200m for this match.

  60. Sauroposeidon September 12, 2014 at 11:13 am -      #60

    “Well, there is no standard size. ”

    Incorrect. Standard size is 36 meters.

    ” If we go by best feats and the most optimal version of the warlord, it would be 200m for this match.”

    Do we have feats for the 200m version? Because at that size it’s basically a sitting duck so it would need substantially better feats than the smaller, and I’m assuming more high tech versions which can supposedly accomplish the same feats with a smaller frame.

    “60m I think is the proper size”

    It would still be too small. Gipsy Danger is 79 meters and just under 2,000 tons. I suggest scaling the Warlord to 80 meters with a weight of around 3,000 tons.

  61. Rookie September 12, 2014 at 11:46 am -      #61

    @Sauroposeidon

    ” I suggest scaling the Warlord to 80 meters with a weight of around 3,000 tons.”

    “Average” Warlords really weight so little? Wow…. To tell the truth I always think that they weight like 100 000 tons (I know that I am wrong but still this is how I imagine them))).

    “Do we have feats for the 200m version? ”

    If I am right this warlord only appears on the cover of the comics… and in the same comics all warlords are about 30 meters tall… So I doubt that there is any feats for him.

  62. Sauroposeidon September 12, 2014 at 11:53 am -      #62

    “Warlords really weight so little?”

    There is no given weight for Warlords to my knowledge, so I scaled the Warlord to give it a weight advantage to somewhat balance it’s slower nature.

    “f I am right this warlord only appears on the cover of the comics”

    So it’s cover art, which means unless the number is explicitly written then somebody just eyeballed it probably and got it wrong. Or again, it’s just cover art, with no bearing on anything actually in 40k. Just a piece meant to look good that never actually happens in any story. =P

  63. Rookie September 12, 2014 at 12:03 pm -      #63

    Well there is always a chance that this titan appears later (is Titan even “alive” as comics?). Author really doesn’t hold himself back. I mean look at the size of the demon in images above. It is the size of Godzilla!
    But for now… I think he have zero feats and doesn’t even exist outside of small cover art)))

  64. Sauroposeidon September 12, 2014 at 12:23 pm -      #64

    It’s actually bigger than godzilla. It’s closer to the 200 meter scale or larger, assuming the warlords are roughly 30-35 meters.

  65. pimpmage September 12, 2014 at 12:33 pm -      #65

    That 200m size appeared in a book somewhere. It is not based off of art. That is why 200m is such a specific number that wasn’t guessed from art.

  66. Sauroposeidon September 12, 2014 at 12:49 pm -      #66

    “That 200m size appeared in a book somewhere. It is not based off of art. That is why 200m is such a specific number that wasn’t guessed from art.”

    I know the 100+ meter one was ( I can’t recall if it’s 120 or 150) but I don’t remember the 200 meter one, if it’s ever been given to me then it’s been too longer for my shit memory to keep a hold of it. Do we have the quote?

  67. pimpmage September 12, 2014 at 1:02 pm -      #67

    That’s the thing though, I don’t remember where I read it. It could be ‘Helsreach’, that siege of vraks book, mechanicum…. who knows.

  68. Rookie September 12, 2014 at 1:04 pm -      #68

    @pimpmage

    “It could be ‘Helsreach’”

    100% no. We have a special type titan in that book (the one with supernova weapon), Imperator-class and god smasher. The rest were never stated to be big or anything.

    Could be, but I think it was warhound. I will check this later.

    I’m quite sure that Aquila Ignis ( the Imperator in Mechanicum) wasn’t that large.

  72. Sauroposeidon September 12, 2014 at 2:42 pm -      #72

    No Imperator ever has been. They don’t use Emperor-class Titans of any sort very often at all so there’s no much variation in their feats I think. It’s the Warlord class that’s tricky.

  73. Kokiris September 12, 2014 at 3:02 pm -      #73

    Have we come to a decision on the size of the Warlord yet? I’m kind of waiting for some sort of confirmation. It’s kind of vital to the match, in my opinion.

  74. Sauroposeidon September 12, 2014 at 3:24 pm -      #74

    It’s up to who ever Anion is.

  75. pimpmage September 12, 2014 at 3:25 pm -      #75

    200m, the quost DOES exist somewhere.

  76. Kokiris September 12, 2014 at 3:35 pm -      #76

    Alright so, I’m just going to assume that the Warlords 200m. I feel due to the size change, this will really be dependent on whether or not the Warlord will still move as quickly as it’s smaller iterations. If it’s even slower, then as someone did say before, it’s a sitting duck. Gipsy can easily spot it. It may also, however, be able to easily spot Gipsy. I would just chalk whatever happens with that up to the skill of each of the pilots, or sensors and the like. I’m going to also assume that the weapons will also increase in power with the increase in size. This means that Gipsy can’t get hit… like at all. Or the Warlord takes this match.. so maybe not so much of a sitting duck I suppose. For Gipsy’s Plasma Cannon, I just don’t see it being very effective against a more technologically advanced machine, with different alloys and armor than anything we’ve seen on earth. (probably). I’m sure it has kick and destructive power against a softer more organic target, like the Kaiju. But I just don’t see it doing well against something like another Jeager.

  77. Kokiris September 12, 2014 at 3:46 pm -      #77

    With a fist fight, under the belief that the Warlord could legitimately hit Gipsy with a good punch from it’s power fists, it being 200m… gipsy gets stomped.

  78. Sauroposeidon September 12, 2014 at 4:20 pm -      #78

    “200m, the quost DOES exist somewhere.”

    No one said it doesn’t. What are you talking about?

    “Alright so, I’m just going to assume that the Warlords 200m.”

    You shouldn’t assume anything.

    ” I feel due to the size change, this will really be dependent on whether or not the Warlord will still move as quickly as it’s smaller iterations.”

    The larger size would imply lower tech, so probably not. That being said, we’re given no reason to feats change with size. So it may also move just as fast.. which is still slow.

    ” I’m going to also assume that the weapons will also increase in power with the increase in size. ”

    You have no reason to assume this. You shouldn’t assume things.

    “This means that Gipsy can’t get hit… like at all. ”

    It can. It just depends on where it’s hit. Although this was basically the situation before. At 200 meters, the guns won’t be able to traverse down enough to hit Gipsy Danger. making this match a cake walk for the jaeger under certain ranges. Its arms are equipped with fists, so it’s defenseless. Part of why I suggest scaling.

    ” Plasma Cannon, I just don’t see it being very effective against a more technologically advanced machine, with different alloys and armor than anything we’ve seen on earth.”

    There’s nothing to suggest Gipsy Danger is lower tech than a Warlord. The weapon has enough punch to pick up and throw kaiju, as well as punch through their hides, which were capable of tanking at least kiloton scale nuclear weapons. This would mean they could take, at least for a moment’s time, temperatures in the tens of millions of degrees. The plasma weapon has to at least be hotter than this. This would make it hotter than temperatures experienced while walking on a star.

    There is also that turbine hug, which in theory should be even hotter.

    ” would just chalk whatever happens with that up to the skill of each of the pilots,”

    Unless we’re given named characters we have no way to judge how capable the Titan’s crew is.

    “But I just don’t see it doing well against something like another Jeager.”

    Yes because as we all know organic targets are always easier to destroy. Just ask the Vong in Star Wars, the Shadow in Babylon 5, the STMC from Gunbuster, and of course, Godzilla himself from his own franchise. That is the absolute dumbest thing you have said yet. You have officially dropped the ball. I strongly suggest you pick it up again and try a little harder.

    Have you seen Pacific Rim? You know the Jaegers were losing to the Kaiju, right? They’re bigger, stronger, faster, more agile, more durable, and more skilled by the end of the water, with only a few Jaegers left operational from an entire army of them around the Pacific Rim.

  79. Kokiris September 12, 2014 at 9:34 pm -      #79

    “The larger size would imply lower tech, so probably not. That being said, we’re given no reason to feats change with size. So it may also move just as fast.. which is still slow.”

    How slow, exactly? Do we really have some legitimate evidence of it’s speed. I’m still foggy on that and I’m not quite sure where to look.

    “You have no reason to assume this. You shouldn’t assume things.”

    I’m aware, it’s a bad habit. However I just have a difficult time visualizing the Titan with anything less than weapons scaled to it’s size.

    “Unless we’re given named characters we have no way to judge how capable the Titan’s crew is.”

    I agree. Who’s piloting Gipsy? Just the same team as in the movie or what?

    “There’s nothing to suggest Gipsy Danger is lower tech than a Warlord. The weapon has enough punch to pick up and throw kaiju, as well as punch through their hides, which were capable of tanking at least kiloton scale nuclear weapons.

This would make it hotter than temperatures experienced while walking on a star.”

    So in essence, Gipsy is not completely outgunned? I concede my argument that it’d be unable to punch through the Titan’s armor. The primary reason as to why I thought Gipsy was lower tech then the Warlord was due to the fact that they are built in entirely different time periods.

  80. Sauroposeidon September 12, 2014 at 9:58 pm -      #80

    “How slow, exactly? Do we really have some legitimate evidence of it’s speed. I’m still foggy on that and I’m not quite sure where to look.”

    They get raped any time something closes in on them, and they’re never depicted as being any faster than ork titans.

    “I agree. Who’s piloting Gipsy? Just the same team as in the movie or what?”

    Usually we go with this unless otherwise specified.

    “So in essence, Gipsy is not completely outgunned?”

    Oh no it’s terribly out gunned. Even if it could hurt the titan it only has a handful of shots in the plasma cannon. The titan can blaze away while the jaeger has to pick its shots. The sword is the real danger. If Gipsy closes in, the titan is losing its head instantly.

    ” I concede my argument that it’d be unable to punch through the Titan’s armor. The primary reason as to why I thought Gipsy was lower tech then the Warlord was due to the fact that they are built in entirely different time periods.”

    Gundams are built something like only 100 years in the future and their tactical nukes are on 40k scale tactical nukes.

    Star Trek is only 300ish years in the future and their FTL is ridiculously advanced compared to 40k’s.

    Star Wars is in the past and has factions that travel between galaxies with an empire who wanted to make the equivalent of Space Marines who could tank nukes and had rapid fire plasma cannon.

    Don’t judge on the scale of time.

    I would like to apologize for being absent from the start of this post. I have been trying to keep up with school as my school year just started.

    as for the size, we should go with 60m. this gives gypsy danger the size handicap it would need to be able to penetrate a warlord’s armor, seeing as how it is using huge kinetic weapons not ones surrounded in power fields like the warlord.

    They both have ranged weapons, but due to the warlord’s void shields the Jaeger’s would be all but useless. However, any 40k fan should know that void shields don’t work in close combat. this is where the fight would really be.

  82. PositiveAnion September 12, 2014 at 11:00 pm -      #82

    Depends how long the ground shook after the thing took a step. 3 seconds of shaking is a long-ass time.

  86. PositiveAnion September 13, 2014 at 1:27 am -      #86

    As for the crew, we should consider them evenly matched in skill. This is a duel of machines, not of pilots. And the biggest reason I say this is the lack of named Titan pilots.

  87. Friendlysociopath September 13, 2014 at 1:29 am -      #87

    “Read the other quotes…”

    Right then-
    Quote for given size
    “Its name was Cruor Vult. It weighed two and a half thousand tonnes and stood nearly sixty meters tall….”

    Very nice

    Quotes for equipment and other stuff
    “And then it howled. Great vox horns fixed on its skull blared out the berserk warcry of the monster. It was so painfully loud, so deep in the infrasonic register, that it reflexively triggered primal fear and panic in us…”
    and
    “Military grade sensors. Heavy-duty auspex. Devices so powerful that they could overcome the island’s magnetic distortions. The beast had been made to fight in horrifically inhospitable theatres, resisting toxins, radiations, vacuums, bombardments. It needed to be able to see and hear and smell and target in the middle of hell. The local magnetics that had bested our civilian instruments were nothing to it.”
    Not relevant to speed point

    And then we have your ‘speed’ quotes
    “Every few seconds, the rock under our feet vibrated as it took another step.”
    and
    “A vibrating thump. It was moving again. The rate of the footsteps increased as it picked up speed until the ground no longer had time to stop shaking between thumps.”

    Assuming they followed the rule that a ‘couple’ means 2, a ‘few’ seconds can be at least described as 3 seconds.
    Now, how long does the ground vibrate after it takes a step?
    That’s actually relevant to your point, if the ground vibrates for 3 seconds after the thing takes a step, if barely has to increase its speed to make the ground vibrate continuously.

  88. pimpmage September 13, 2014 at 1:33 am -      #88

    No, reread the first speed quote. It says 3 seconds between each step. It then goes on to say there was barely a second between each step. That tells me at least human jogging speed.

    I am sure it might be possibly to work some match into this. If weight can be connected with vibrations created in any way, I am sure we could get some sort of answer. But I suck at match sorry.

  89. Friendlysociopath September 13, 2014 at 1:37 am -      #89

    It says “every few seconds”, which can be anywhere upwards of 3 but I also took it to mean 3.

    “It then goes on to say there was barely a second between each step.”

    No it doesn’t, are you looking at a different quote than I am? The one I’m looking at vaguely says the ground doesn’t have time to stop shaking before it takes another step. That does not say that it’s taking a step in 1 second.

  90. pimpmage September 13, 2014 at 1:42 am -      #90

    Three seconds between steps to ~0 seconds between steps. This is exactly what those quotes say. I only said 1 second because it was a conservative estimate based on what could be interpreted by the character experiencing this situation.
    Edit:
    I meant to say math in post 88, I must be drunk.

  91. Friendlysociopath September 13, 2014 at 2:00 am -      #91

    “I am sure it might be possibly to work some match into this. If weight can be connected with vibrations created in any way, I am sure we could get some sort of answer. But I suck at match sorry.”

    “It weighed two and a half thousand tonnes”

    We do know the weight, but without additional info like the area the vibrations reach or how severe they are we aren’t likely to get far.

    I frankly expect the ground to vibrate for a long time, which is why I’ not fully certain your speed quote gives it a very great walking speed.

  92. Sauroposeidon September 13, 2014 at 8:21 am -      #92

    “Good speed feat right guys?”

    I would estimate that this is roughly a step every secondish, personally. Assuming they can’t actually run but more powerwalk. Which is to say they don’t ever “get air” in a typical gallop but are more like elephants who never have all four feet off the ground. could get high and low end speeds from this estimate by getting an idea of general stride length at 60 meters and then going with one step every 0.8 seconds and one step every 1.2 seconds. However, since for some reason we’ve decided to make it smaller and lighter than Gipsy Danger, it WILL NOT be faster at this scale. It’s legs are way too short.

  93. Ninja Xtreme September 13, 2014 at 10:40 am -      #93

    What’s the height and weight of the Titan here? Also, triple post!

  94. Sauroposeidon September 13, 2014 at 1:22 pm -      #94

    Anion said 60 meters (I wonder if he realizes that this makes it smaller than the jaeger?) and in the books were given a weight of 2,500 tons at that size.

  95. Sauroposeidon September 13, 2014 at 2:10 pm -      #95

    A brief discussion on the plasma cannon and its power.

    To give you an idea. Knifehead, the category III kaiju that Gipsy Danger fights in the beginning, is 96 meters tall. Originally planned to be 2,700 tons, it was upscaled in the movie to a whopping 8,700 tons. Although I don’t remember where they quote its weight. So if someone could help me find it that’d be great. I suspect it may have been a mistake, since outside source material quotes larger kaiju such as leather back as being lighter than that but heavier than 2,700. So the original 2,700 tons should be more accurate.

    www.youtube.com/watch?v=0VpNGrj9IsQ

    The fight scene with Knife Head. We can the first plasma round punches through its flesh. Two follow up shots strike the same area but fail to kill it. The first one completely picks up the kaiju. The following two seem to propel it further.

    The fourth shot kills it, although we don’t get to see the effects, the weapon was shoved right up against the wound so I assume it cooked the inside of the animal.

    Knife Head is a larger variant of the same clone pattern used for Trespasser/Axehead. Trespasser is recognized as being almost as large as Knife Head. At 92 meters and the exact same weight, roughly, it took three tactical nuclear strikes to bring it down, according to the movie’s writer.

    travisbeacham.tumblr.com/post/59514260634/how-many-cities-were-nuked-nukes-were-dropped-in-total

    Trespasser was much larger than following Kaiju, as the others, usually category I or II, were taken out by single nukes.

    Considering the state his body was in afterwards, we can assume that the heat was an important factor, but that the pressure wave was the most important killing factor. He was not vaporized, as, say, humans were when directly under the Hiroshima bomb. A 15kt bomb which detonated something like a mile over the land.

    At random, I have selected the B61 tactical nuclear missile. It is a common tactical nuke remaining with in our stockpiles. There are versions rated at being able to take out bunker facilities under 1000 feet of granite. It is rated at roughly 340 kilotons yield for larger versions.

    This would mean it takes roughly around 1.2 megatons to kill large kaiju. It’s an odd coincidence, but I thought it should satisfy previous questions I’ve seen concerning the death of Trespasser requiring nukes.

    So we can assume the plasma cannon is in the nuclear weapon range of yield, and hotter than walking on the sun, with enough kick to pick up and throw the titan.

    Considering Warlord shields do little to stop each other’s weapons, a bevy of fire from Gipsy Danger should be sufficient in..

    A. Taking out its shields.

    B. Stunning the Titan.

    C. Knocking over or throwing the Titan.

    D. Severely crippling the titan. Perhaps even killing it if it lands an important blow such as a head shot.

    However, we don’t really know its range. I presume it loses punch at range since closer range strikes seem to do so much more damage. So it’s probably only a couple hundred meters at best as a high end estimate.

    A brief note on kaiju durability. Scunner, a category IV, would thusly have been defeated by far fewer plasma shots than it took to kill Leather Back, also a category IV. This can mean one of two things.

    A. That Kaiju come with class specializations of sorts, just like MMO characters. The clone variant line that Knife Head is a part of are sort of the DPS class of kaiju. Big, lots of damage, but little armor, we could also assume from this that Leather Back is instead more of a Kaiju Tank, since he seemed to focus on strength and durability and not so much on damage dealing potential.

    or..

    B. Scunner absorbed much more energy than is the norm for a kaiju to take when hit with a nuke as he was point blank. Many nukes do not detonate right on top of their target but rather somewhere over it. So under normal combat conditions, a nuke larger than 1.2mt would be required to kill it.

    If I can look at the Leatherback fight, that pretty much shows the plasma cannon’s ammo capacity, at least for one arm (I don’t recall if Gipsy switches cannons between killing the Kaiju, and “checking for a pulse” but those two actions seem to have depleted her reserves by what Raleigh says in the Otachi fight.

    It’s not many. They’re akin to old six shooters. Not much ammo, but god damn that’s one big injun killin’ slug.. or kaiju killin’ bolt in this case. I’ll go grab it for you.

    They put if I recall 12-13 rounds in Leather Back with their right arm. Then 4 I think with the left.

    Either the left arm has a back up with out as much ammo or plasma can be funneled to either limb through conduits leading from the turbine engine.

    He says empty the clip so I’m guessing the second one is a back up for emergency purposes.

    So either 13 with a 4 shot back up or around 17 shots in total.

    Nope, not much. But, if Gipsy can land most of those shots, it should do some nice damage.

    “Nope, not much. But, if Gipsy can land most of those shots, it should do some nice damage.”

    Was gypsy ever damaged beyond the point of using its left arm weapon? It may have a full 13 shots in the other arm as well. Perhaps the loss of coolant disallowed the use of the plasma weapon with out cooking the pilots.

    That is the most logical other option I can think of besides just running out of ammo.
