Actually, if you watch Endless Waltz, it shows where Heer was trained. It looks very much like a military installment. Though I know that there were no military there. And it wasn't very secret. It was right in the middle of a colony. Surrounded by appartments if I'm not mistaken.
I haven't had the chance to read the manga. You definitely have immensily more knowledge on this subject.
Personally I think that Wufei and Trowa are the best of the five. It seems as though Wufei is best at close combat and Trowa is best at long range. True that Duo did beat the Vayeate and Mercurius but I don’t think Heero or Trowa used the suits full potential. Looking back through the series you see Trowa in a number of suits such as the wing gundam, space Taurus, Aries, Vayeate, even in the endless waltz you see a glimpse of him in a Leo and he pilots them all very well, even when he loses his memory he is still really good. And then there’s Wufei who has a lot of heart, dedication and determination. When he fights; he gives a 100% every time. While piloting the Shenlong Gundam I believe he could have given Zech a run for his money while he was in the Eypon. Don’t get me wrong you watch Gundam wing for so long you learn to love all the Gundam pilots for who they are and what they bring to the show but from what I’ve seen I’m not really to impress with Heero, he seems somewhat careless and he’s always piloted gundams that are really powerful like Wing Zero and Eypon. Heero is well rounded not particularly great in one area but good all around. Quatre I think could possibly be a whole lot better than he comes off, he is very tactical but he holds back and he and Duo are easily distracted. Duo is probably better than Heero in close combat but may not have any long range skills. Remember the time when he tried to escape on a space Leo and Hilde shot the gun out of his hand. Yeah! I was a little disappointed in Duo for not showing this girl that she was in over her head or maybe he just really couldn’t. Even when he was forced to pilot the Wing Zero and fight the mobile dolls he chose the beam saber. So in conclusion I feel the gundam pilots are all really good but just in their areas.
I think you right about most of them. However, in endless waltz, you can see Heero piloting a Leo. And he goes up against Wufei in the Shenlong. He actually makes the battle last quite a while. And thats when he doesn't even have his Gundam. He's using a Leo for pete's sake. In my opinion, he made Wufei look like a novice.
well in super robot wars version, they are actually equal.
sorry man Heero wood destroy duo even without the Wing Zero or Zero program
