Missed me? Hey, does any one remember when I suggested they could be like androids? It would make sense, because remember when Church asked " Why are you in MY armor?" That must mean that it's a robot in armor, and it would be a good idea to make that robot look human, because it's easier to relate to a human than a robot. It would be a good idea, because of the audience, and the characters.
I think he said "Why are you in my armor" because Washington was wearing his armor. I know that seems like a dumb reason, but put yourself in Church's shoes. If you have just exited the Epsi-Pod and you saw Wash in your armor, wouldn't you ask the same question. Also, there other reason he could've asked that was because Wash has his own armor yet he was wearing Church's.
She's a robot. Unless she is physically broken, she doesn't get sore, she doesn't slow down.
Tell that to my lawnmower. It was saying things today that I haven't heard it ever say. It's still holding up, but something is starting to go. The noise will clear up and the mower settle down, but I'm concerned at just how much longer it can hold up.
I think A-Church and Tex would have had to have some sort of artificial human-looking bodies under their armor initially. Otherwise I think someone (other than Caboose of course) would have noticed that A-Church never ate or peed, and apparently slept in his armor. Program tampering to prevent them from finding out wouldn't have worked since someone else would have noticed and pointed it out to them. Later of course, the bodies they snagged would be the standard fully robotic ones since few outside PF would bother to stock the human-looking versions.
No one noticed that Simmons hasn't gone to the bathroom in 3 years.
Grif: How did you change so fast? Simmons: I've always been a fast changer. I'm very shy. Grif:Is that why you wear your underwear in the shower, too? Simmons:I also never use the bathroom at the base. Only at home. Grif:Dude, we've been stationed here for like three years. Simmons:Yeah, it's gonna be a very eventful homecoming.
Equipment fatigue means parts wearing out which isn't fixed by letting the machine "rest" a while. People fatigue is getting tired, more similar to a machine running low on fuel. In reply to CorbanG, #14232:
They did however notice that he showered. The bathroom thing was for just for humor anyhow, like supposedly making him a cyborg, otherwise Simmons 2.0 would have been put down by the EMP.
I think that depends on how much she actually associated with them. Judging off of Season 9 the only time the other Freelancers really saw her was either in the field or in training, neither being places she would take off her helmet. If the other Freelancers didn't really see her that much during their off times then they probably wouldn't think much of it. Course Season 10 may show otherwise, especially when she plans to free the Alpha
Equipment that is pushed too hard has to take a rest to avoid structural fatigue. Friction builds up heat which causes things to expand. Allowing the equipment to rest allows it to cool down.
Hydraulic brakes will fail due to the fluid becoming too hot and boil if the breaks are used too hard and too often. Allowing the vehicle to rest will allow the fluid to return to its normal temperature.
Using a clutch too much and too hard will cause it to slip and become hot and make it ineffective and eventually fail. Allowing it to rest will allow it to cool off and become effective again.
The more that electronic components are pushed the hotter they will become and eventually they will break down. Increasing its cooling capacity (adding a heat sink and/or fan) will allow it to be pushed harder for a longer period of time, but having it shut down (some of today's equipment have an automatic thermal shutdown mode) and rest (or merely reduce its load) will allow it to recover.
We can also take a look at the fuel supply. There's only so much in the tank or battery. As a battery is depleted, the equipment doesn't operate as efficiently. When the tank runs out of fuel, the equipment shuts down.
Robots aren't 'all go all of the time'. They too must operate within its load range and must have 'down time' for routine maintenance and refueling.
However, a robot specifically designed for combat (which this Tex body would be, possibly unlike the Lopez-style bodies) would almost certainly have as few heat related issues as possible, and any sort of "fatigue" they would experience would be negilible compared to that an organic would sustain.
And the human(s) that she would be facing would have armor equally advanced as hers.
I'm simply trying to have people realize that their is a load limit to robots (and other equipment). A race car is designed for racing aggressively, and yet it has its limits. A 50 cal machine gun is designed for aggressive combat conditions; however, it can only be effective for so many rounds of sustained fire before you have to let it rest.
While, say, a motorcycle has its limits, it still can go for much longer than the most analogous animal, the cheetah.
A man has the advantage of load limits over a robot. He can make himself stronger through training, while a robot while merely wear itself down. But as for an action both are capable of, the robot will last much longer.
Say, did anyone notice that all the insurrectionist soldiers are idiots? Except for those red and black ones. But the rest of them should be simulation troopers. They are just that stupid, and incompetent. I'll bet they're just mercenaries, not actual soldiers.
Now that I think about it... With the exception of the non-canon trailer, the Season 9 prequel parts didn't even directly reference the existence of simulation troopers, did it?
This may sound like an absurd theory (because it pretty much is), but is it possible that Project Freelancer seized control of an Insurrectionist-controlled planet and then covertly took control over a large force of idiot Insurrection soldiers. Then perhaps Project Freelancer divided the idiot Insurrection soldiers into two teams to fight in the fake Red Versus Blue civil war (a simple enough transition for stupid soldiers that already considered themselves to be in a civil war-type conflict with the UNSC)... and perhaps the UNSC was so impressed with Project Freelancer's ability to subvert and deceive the Insurrectionist force that it awarded them by providing a steady supply of idiot recruits to perpetuate the fake war that was preoccupying former enemies and providing training scenarios for Project Freelancer's elite soldiers.
