for the MH pages, are you guys gonna include detail stuffs such as serial no., alphabet no.?
One thing i noticed is the use of the term "Type". For e.g. Terror Mirage is "Type G". What we are referring to is in fact 形式 in JP, and perhaps it is better to use the word "Form" instead of "Type". Reason is, Nagano is now using another description, for e.g. in the latest July NT, we can see the term "Type G" referring to the Cross Mirage, and "Type J" is the Jagd Mirage. So if we continue to use "Type" when referring to 形式 (Form) then we will cause confusion.
I hope it won't confuse anyone!
My decision to use the term "Type" over "Serial no" was I was following the model of the writeup on the LED Mirage found in English volume 6, there the LED Mirage's "Type" was listed as "Mirage B"
I decided to leave out "Serial No" because with AKD models, (specifically the Mirages) their serial numbers are based on their engines. Other countries don't seem to follow that particular methodology for their MH forces.
Also on the Jagd Mirage writeup in English volume 20, its got the term "Design" in the place where I use the term "Type".
With the KOG AT, what I have listed as its "Type" is probably its "Alphabet Code" (D-2. The Jagd Mirage is D-9. The LED Mirage is B-1 etc) for type I should probably put K.O.G. ver4(?) Mirage D2 combining both its form and its alphabet code. A good number of the AKD MH's are detailed in this fashion, however most of the non-AKD MH's don't have this much detail about their Serial Numbers and "Types" and "Forms" to be so specific about them, thus I decided to use the general term "Type" to refer it its Model/styling, like Mirage B, or Siren A or Atoll BS, Atoll SKS, Atoll ESSQ etc.
And of course, with Nagano constantly evolving the details of his universe, things get changed with time. So now with the Internal Structure of MH article we get "Type" (actually Chasis Type?) which corresponds to the MH's basic design function of Powerful or Speedy (Lion type or Cheetah type?) Man do I want a full translation of that article! It would help so much I think.
Other less important stuff like details of KOG AT, its formal name is Knight of Titin D2.
Knight of Titin?
Titan? Like the progenitors of the Greek Gods? Or perhaps Knight of Titanium?
