A new Evangelion in 3.0+1.0

From this Minna no Eva article about the Q&A khara had on their new Twitter account:

「新しいエヴァンゲリオンは出ますか?」という質問に対して「シン・エヴァで新しい機体が出る」というタレコミも。

In response to the question "Do you get a new evangelion?" There is also a suggestion that "a new aircraft will come out at Shin Eva."

Some context  SPOILER: Show
Minna's article refers to this question



Q: Is there a new Evangelion?
What are you going to make of Shin Eva next?
A: Do you want to hear this here? Really?? I'm not saying!


新しいエヴァンゲリオンは出ますか? is translated by both Google and Bing as a "Is there a new Evangelion [in the movie]?", but the answer is a "no comment". However later they quoted that tweet and added



It is said that we will only speak here / This is just a story.


The translation is useless, but the tweet became the most liked and retweeted of the Q&A and it got one reply asking for clarifications (something like "does it mean that there will be a new Evangelion in the movie or a new Evangelion story after 3.0+1.0?")

それはシンエヴァで新しい機体が出るという意味ですか?それともシンエヴァの後に新しいエヴァの物語が始まるという意味ですか?

Does that mean the new aircraft will come out with sin Eva? Or does it mean that the new Eva story begins after sin Eva?


And they clarified



I am sorry. There was a tip of the new aircraft in "Shin Eva".


The only reply that tweet has is a guy wondering if it's Unit 8+2 or maybe one of the missing units like 7, 10 and 11.


I guess that the Eva Series of the rebuilds (maybe they'll be named Mark.07/10/11/12 a/b/c like tha mass produced Mark.04? I don't think Anno wants go to higher than 13 and break the symbolism) does count as a new Evangelion and they are referring to that.

It's probably for Rei-Q. If Shinji is ever getting in a robot again? It's probably going to be Unit 01.

Will this 'Aircraft' Eva actually fly? Or will it be like the glider pack Unit 02 wore in 2.22?

I think aircraft is simply a wrong translation, or a technically right but out of context translation, and it doesn't imply a flying capability.

It’s another name for 3.0+1.0 (I think). Shin is a Japanese word that can translate to new, true, or god (all three could apply to 3.0+1.0).

I hear Japanese fans short-hand Evangelion 3.0 + 1.0 to "Shin Eva." They do the same thing for the other movies, short-handing the titles by their Japanese theatrical titles rather than their numeric titles. The Japanese title for Evangelion 1.x is actually "Evangelion Jo," which roughly translates into "Evangelion Prelude." The numeric titles (Evangelion 1.0) are the international titles for the film.

    Evangelion 1.x = Eva Jo
    Evangelion 2.x = Eva Ha
    Evangelion 3.x = Eva Q
    Evangelion 3.x + 1.x = Shin Eva

I adopted this way of referring to the film simply because "Shin Eva" is simpler to type that "Eva 3.0 + 1.0," and have begun using that same method for abbreviating the other films as well.

Or maybe it's a clue for an Wunder equilvalent ship (the dark room where Gendo and Fuyu are at the end of Q)?

Machine translations are still absolute garbage for Japanese.

This does not mean a flying Eva because kitai (機体) is more like fuselage/airframe than aircraft and a generic term that mecha anime has adopted.

I've added your post in the OP so that it is clearer.
