You show them generating a limbless torso in a tank -- which I suppose is possible, but, since Evas presumably grow "the usual way" by default (Adam reverts to an embryo, after all), this means they're have to intentionally suppress limb growth from the start. And I'm not sure why they'd want to do this unless they for whatever reason knew in advance that they were going to turn the Eva into a spider-tank. But that doesn't quite explain the "provisional" bit, either.
Meh. I mean it shouldn't be too hard for them to grow new limbs and parts for an eva right? Afterall didn't they grow new limbs and torsos every time an Eva would get battle damage?
Case in point after the extensive damage that Zeruel did to the Eva Units i would assume they had to re-grow arms, flesh/tissue for Unit 00 and Unit 02.
I wouldn't see how this would be any different or harder to do with Eva Unit 05. They just surpress the growth of the legs and or chop off the legs that were there originally and add on freakin' motorized roller blade legs for the Unit. And if the need ever arises that they need to turn Eva Unit 05 back into a bipedal weapon of destruction, just do what they did with Eva unit 02 and 00 by stitching up those legs you cut off earlier.
And if they did surpress growth, surely they can regrow legs and arms individually...... The Evas don't mind. They don't feel pain. They live for it!!
EDIT: And I'm sure that its been said before by either you Reichu or someone else. But perhaps Eva Unit 05 had an accident before it was turned into the four legged freak it is today.
Also as anyone here ever posed the possibility that they used an incomplete eva body used for synchronization training and just built ontop of it? Perhaps thats why it was never meant to be an actual Eva unit used in battle?
Or maybe its an Eva Unit that was revived from the Eva graveyard and was once a reject, but recently scientists found a way to put it to good use.
