    There aren't any good or good full view pics in the animation of the ship.
    Anyway, since it has a spaceship version in Enterprise, I will give it a go here.

    Dunno Razz , but you can check here & here.There are a number of old novels with this old version.

    It appears to have been sold together with the OVA DVD box, 3 music CD for 20790.
    This site shows you how to create the sub.

    Well, the models are always like this, but IMO cheaper than those dolls.

    It does not look like it, it introduced advanced stories and scifi to young people like me.
    Although, it took me years later to actually undertand the stuff. lol ->was too young

    I can't be the only person who thinks the Musai-class is AWESOME, can I?
    Class: Musai
    Ships of the line: Camel, Falmel, Kuwamel,
    Swamel, Tokmel, Primus, Baromel,
    Remul, Brave
    Unit type: light cruiser
    Manufacturer: Principality of Zeon
    Operator: Principality of Zeon
    Dimensions: overall
    length 234 meters; overall width 98.4 meters; overall height 79.4
    meters

    Weight: unknown
    Propulsion: unknown
    Equipment and design features: Komusai shuttle; sensors, range unknown
    Fixed armaments: 3
    x 2-barrel mega particle gun; 2 x large missile launcher; 10 x
    small missile launcher
    Mobile suits:
    5 (3 in mobile suit hangar, 2 in Komusai shuttle)
    Technical::
    The Principality
    of Zeon developed the Musai class light cruiser in conjunction
    with its mobile suit program, and as such, the Musai
    had the distinction of being the first combat spaceship ever
    designed to carry and support mobile suits. Musai class
    cruisers were capable of transporting three mobile suits, and
    two additional mobile suits could be stored in the Musai's
    Komusai re-entry capsule. The Musai was armed with three
    twin mega-particle cannon turrets and a battery of missile launchers,
    but it was heavily dependent on its mobile suit contingent to
    provide anti-fighter and anti-MS defense. A major flaw in the
    design of the Musai was the omission of any close-in
    weapons systems for point defense. This shortfall, however,
    was partially a result of the role the Musai was expected
    to play in battle; to support its mobile suits from long range.
    Musai class ships proved themselves superior in long-range
    combat repeatedly throughout the One Year War. Late-war examples
    of the Musai removed one of the mega-particle cannon
    turrets and increased the mobile suit complement to four.

    And if we're gunna talk subs, the Tuatha de Danann from FMP! is pretty sweet. however, i cant find any pictures of it right now

    Anime influence is quite large without many people including myself knowing it all.
    But as far as I see and know, pretty much all the popular western shows/movies do have anime derived designs or other bits and pieces. At least many popular designs turned out to be that way. Many come from classics at least 5 to thirty years old and may even get reused within the universe up until the end like ST Voyager for example.
    Rick Sternbach is and was very fond of Sol Bianca. Wink
    The uss Voyager had parts/transformation that were derived or resemble from Sol bianca.
    It has biotech just like Sol Bianca. ST VOY got molecular replication, ablative armor similar to Sol Bianca's molecular modification/pasha. ST VOY rifle also came from one of Sol Bianca's prominent rifle. Slipstream tunnel property/behavior very much resemble Sol Bianca's transluminal tunnels. etc. But to be fair Sol bianca got warp and June is similar to Data but she's human and if has more advanced bio components.
    Or Halo's Master chief armor design happens to resemple an anime project art called Jupiter something.

    BSG?My mind instantly went to Battlestar Galactica so could you specify what the initials stand for?
