In the alternate timelines of Unlimited and Alternative, the invasion of Earth by the BETA began in 1974. electricity 2pm live To circumvent the overwhelming anti-air superiority of the Laser-class BETA, TSFs were thus developed as all-purpose assault units, able to fight in urban areas, on uneven terrain, and 3-dimensional combat within the interior of BETA Hives [1] without their maneuverability being constrained in the heat of battle, following the successful deployment of bipedal mechanized units such as the Feedback Protector and NCAF-X1 used in the preceding First Lunar War. Since their first deployment in 1974, TSFs have become essential to humanity’s survival over the 30-year war.

TSF movement is a combination of bipedal locomotion and thrust from their Jump Units. [2] Their legs and arms are moved with carbon actuators, superconducting bands of carbon-based material that expand and contract based on the electrical current passed though them; the electricity to power the carbon actuators come from a combination of batteries and magnesium fuel cells. [2] Jump Units produce thrust by processing specialized jet fuel, usually stored in the Jump Units themselves or in storage tanks in a TSF’s legs. External tanks can be attached to a TSF for increased operational time and distance. [2]

TSF mobility is further enhanced by their joint construction; the combined usage of carbon actuators and multiple joints structures in a single joint segment impart TSFs with high operating limits and shock-absorbing capabilities during battle. [3] One example is the wide-ranged rotational capability of a TSF’s shoulders and elbows, allowing them to engage targets directly behind them even without gun-equipped Mount Pylons. [3] Sub-arms positioned underneath the shoulder-block armor allow TSFs a wide range of arm movement without interference. [3]

Mobility is not just all that TSFs have, however; they are also armored in an anti-projectile and heat-resistant composite that has been further treated with anti-laser coating. [4] Armor on the upper body segment also aids in maneuverability by improving the active instability aspect of a TSF; [4] a higher center of gravity improves the execution time of maneuvers during combat. However, with the immense power wielded by the Laser-class BETA, armor protection for TSFs remains a low-return concept compared to attack avoidance.

Most if not all of the American, Soviet, and European TSFs are based on real-life fighter jets (e.g.- the F-22A being built by " Lockweed Mardin", a clear reference to Lockheed Martin). However, the people responsible for the design and manufacture of the real world’s various fighter jets are not necessarily the same people who were responsible for the design/manufacture of TSFs in Muv-Luv Unlimited/Alternative.

Early on, 1 st generation TSFs such as the F-4 Phantom were envisioned as mobile tanks, and were sent into battle with heavy armaments and armor plating while operated by retrained former military aviators. gas out game instructions The results were disastrous; BETA combat strength easily bypassed any amount of armor, and pilots struggled with the conceptual differences between piloting an airplane and a TSF. Specialized TSF training was quickly established and taught to officers early in their careers to improve and advance TSF combat doctrines throughout the years.

With the experiences gained from fighting the BETA, later 1 st generation TSFs began a shift towards lighter, more agile units. Examples include the F-5 Freedom Fighter and its derivatives, the Tornado IDS and Mirage III. Nations that adopted the F-4 also upgraded their TSFs for improved close-quarters capabilities; examples include the MiG-21 Balalaika, J-8, and the Type-77 Gekishin.

Starting from the 2 nd generation, manufacturers shifted their focus to improving the agility and maneuverability of TSFs, as the numbers and offensive strength of the BETA in a war of attrition assured that pilots fared much better by avoiding attacks, rather than withstanding them. 6 gases One of the means by which improved performance was achieved was active instability [5] – 2 nd generation TSFs had their center of gravity located in their upper body segment, using the inherently unbalanced design to reduce the time needed to commence maneuvers during combat. Otherwise, the TSF is kept upright by its own OS. [6]

During the 2 nd generation of TSF development, tactics such as the High-Low Mix were developed, resulting in TSF designs built around exploiting this strategy; examples include the F-15 Eagle/ Su-27 Zhuravlik as "heavy" TSFs, and the F-16 Fighting Falcon/ MiG-27 Aligatori as "lightweight" TSFs. electricity generation in california Numerous 1 st generation TSFs also underwent extensive upgrading into 1.5 th generation TSFs, their upgrades vastly improving their mobility and evasion capabilities. 1.5 th generation TSFs were still constrained by their physical frames, however, and some, like the Type-82 Zuikaku, were unable to reach a level of performance comparable to 2 nd generation TSFs of that time.

Not counting the United States, most nations attempting to enter the 2 nd generation of TSF technology often found themselves outmatched, mostly due to the pressure on their infrastructure and industry from the advancing BETA, or from a lack of specialized knowledge on TSF construction; examples include the quasi-2 nd generation MiG-23 Cheburashka, the poorly-developed MiG-25 Spirt-Voz, and the troubles experienced by the Empire of Japan during the development of their own TSF, forcing them to acquire the F-15J Kagerou as a stopgap measure.

By the 1990s, the development of TSFs had shifted into the 3 rd generation. TSFs of this tier boast superior maneuverability, mobility, and firepower compared to 2 nd generation TSFs, due to the input of combat data over the past two decades, which helped shape the vast improvements in the technology, hardware and software used as their components; their resultant designs clearly reflect the strategic needs of their nations. The Type-94 Shiranui, the world’s first 3 rd generation TSF, remains a high-performance unit nearly a decade after its introduction, and late 3 rd generation units like the Type-00 Takemikazuchi focus on overwhelming close-combat advantages, while the F-22A Raptor uses stealth and superior mobility to not only outmaneuver BETA, but human and TSF opponents as well.

Even with the superiority of 3 rd generation TSFs, development, production, and procurement difficulties for most of them have resulted in renewed improvement and experimentation projects involving 2 nd generation TSFs. 9gag memes Some, like the F-15E Strike Eagle and F-18E/F Super Hornet, have received upgrades with tried-and-tested technology originating from the 2 nd generation of development, but others, such as the F-15ACTV Active Eagle and MiG-29OVT Fulcrum, have been partially upgraded with technology developed for 3 rd generation TSFs. Heavily upgraded TSFs are known as 2.5 th generation TSFs, while TSFs extensively upgraded with 3 rd generation technology are known as quasi-3 rd generation TSFs. Depending on development and performance, a quasi-3 rd generation TSF (such as the F-15SE Silent Eagle) may be reclassified as a full-fledged 3 rd generation TSF.
