I'd rate them as a round that's got a very high velocity, but small size; the same concept as the M-16's .223.
In Battlefront it's more like a shot-gut with three slugs in the shell.

The M16 rifle uses a 5.56x45mm cartridge. It was derived from but isn't interchangable with a .223 round. And a shotgun fires about nine pellets that spread out when fired. Bobas rifle in Battlefront simply fires a three round burst.

I like Boba because of his appearance and Mando heritage.

Ahhhhh, I missed your note that the text there was copied from the Wiki.  As I'm sure Draco would have pointed out if he'd seen that, you should trust NOTHING you see there.  I follow it to a degree, but he's basically right; it can be VERY missleading, and not as accurate as it might sound.

Look up pics from the KotOR comics with groups of Mandos, or play the KotOR games.  EVERY Mando except Mandalore Ordo you see in the games does Not have a T-visor, but rather an Imperial Guard lookin' slit visor.  In the comics, most DO have some sort of T-visor, but not all.  And there's a ton of variations on the T for those who do.

The more modern Mandos DO seem to have the Fett style of armor more or less standardized as far as the basic form of the armor.  Keep in mind, however, that many comics, especially older ones, can quickly become non-canon in those sorts of details when something newer and better comes out

True about Wookieepedia, and I wonder if modern Mandos having shock trooper armor is due to their creators basically copying the Boba and Jango armor, giving it a different color and the person inside a different name.

I'm not saying we disagree I was simply pointing something out. And like I said those three points were copy and pasted directly from Wookiepedia, they weren't my own. I personally have never seen a Mando without a T visor though. Also, I don't think that the color of the armor determines the type.

Actually Ralin Drakus there are several types of armor varieties; Crusader, Neo-Crusader, Death Watch, Shock Trooper... Though I think I'm mistaken with there being super commando armor, I thought I read it somewhere but maybe not. And this is taken from Wookieepedia: Throughout Mandalorian history, three major features remained constant in Mandalorian Armor design:           
1. The wearer was always protected by lightsaber-resistant Mandalorian iron, which could also deflect blaster bolts.

2. The helmets almost always possessed a T-shaped visor and a sophisticated heads-up display (HUD).

3. Mandalorian warriors decorated their armor to reflect personal accomplishments, clan affiliation, or simply personal preference. They often repainted their armor to reflect rank, clan, and possibly the current terrain. They were also known to paint their armor in the traditional colors that represented specific causes the individual might currently be undertaking. The color blue represented reliability, green for duty, black for justice, gold for vengeance, red for honoring a father, and gray for mourning a lost love were common color variants. The colors, however, did not always have a specific meaning. Sometimes they were just colors that the particular Mandalorian liked. Some Mandalorians wore pieces of armor to honor relatives, both dead and alive.

Though I know that a lot of mandos didn't use Mandalorian Iron for their Beskar' gam I thought that the T visor was always consistent, even with defectors like the Death Watch.

What types are your guys' armor? Mine is super commando.

Not sure on your meaning there vod, ALL Boba/Jango era Mandalorian armour is based on the same (basic) design, although modification and variation does exist. Supercommando's are the best of the best Mandalorians, elite if you like. Shocktrooper's on the other hand was a name that applied to all Mandalorians of Boba and Jango's era (originally having come from the Neo-Crusaders name of a type of Mandalorian soldier 5000 yrs before Star Wars ANH). It would there-fore be more accurate to say that the armour is Shocktrooper armour.

KOTE Mandos are also referred to as Ori'ramikad Squad - which is Mando'a for Supercommando Squad, so we are also Supercommando's.

I looked up the supercommando armor on wookieepedia and the pic there looks more like Neo-Crusader armor so I'll put it this way; my armor is like Canderous Ordo's, a little bulkier and covers more parts of the body. Almost like a cross between Neo-Crusader and Shock Trooper armor. I get what you're saying though, but I was refering more to armor styles.

Black and gold are the same colors my guys got.....good taste. Same order, too.

Thanks, and to keep it from being too plain I put it over a dark gray flight suit.

Just watched the scene on YouTube, there is a head shaped/sized shadow. Interesting.

I agree that Anakins padawan is is a perfect match for him. And trust me, she isn't as weak as she looks. I don't wanna give anything away but she carries her own just fine. Also I too had to go see it alone, my GF didn't wanna go see it with me. Funny story: A little kid there(about 6 or so) was dressed as Vader and this other kid goes thats dumb, Alex Skywalker doesn't even turn into Dark Vader in this one. And the kid dressed as Vader goes "I find your lack of faith disturbing". I almost died laughing.

Most Mandalorian Shock Trooper armor(like Boba's) have a liner shirt with a micro energy field projector and two layers of ceramic plates under the torso armor to increase durability and protection, so maybe the pants have the same thing or something similar. It would seem unlikely that Boba or Jango or any Mando would leave their legs with so little protection.

I will concede that JANGO had functional armor, he has all the same stuff as BOBA on the games and all, minus the rocket launcher, which is a fundamental difference.  BOBA is ready for a ship encounter, now JANGO did have the wrist rockets.
.

Jango had a rocket launching jetpack just like Boba. He fires it at Obi-Wan during their fight on the landing platform on Kamino in AotC. As far as my preference goes I like the way Jango's armor is bulkier and looks more like its made for actual combat.

Wookieepedia and the Databank at Star Wars.com have info on both Plagueis and Palpatine. And Karson Fett, its Darth Plagueis the Wise, not Whites.

Oh good point it's because Boba's weapon is more of a carbine smile

I would have to say that (IMO) Jango's pistols would be equal to .50 caliber Desert Eagles, because even though hes really good with them and even though he dual weilds them, they are still just pistols so I would think they'd be of a very high caliber to ensure maximum damage and effectivness. As for Boba's EE-3 being equal to an M4 I agree with because the EE-3 is a carbine as is the M4.

I don't think anyone can dual-wield Desert Eagles, the recoil is simply too strong.

True but you'd think he'd have a high cal. blaster pistols. They must be to kill  a reek with one shot. And besides the recoil from blasters isn't the same as guns.

My blaster rifle would be the same as Canderous Ordo's, a highly modified Mandalorian heavy repeater. My pistol would be the same as Cassus Fett's heavy blaster pistol, though I would change out the wood grip for durasteel, and paint it black.

I say yes, Jango is awesome. I haven't read the Open Seasons book yet but I know his backstory and so I say he is indeed good enough.Though from what is seen in AOTC it does make him seem as if hes not as good as the legacy would have you to believe. As far as his legacy goes, he learned from and modeled himself after Jaster Mereel, and then put his own spin on things. Just as Boba did with what he learned from Jango.

I think this is the right spot to introduce myself(sorry if its not), my name is Dave and I've been a Fett fan since I first watched ESB in 1989, though now I'm a bit obsessed with Mandalorians in general. So hello to all and I look forward to being a part of the community.
