Technology & Combat Characteristics
Developed around UC 0130, fifty years after the end of the One Year War, the now-declining Anaheim Electronics revisited its glory days with this anniversary mobile suit. Equipped with a pseudo mono-eye head and external power cables that were intended to provide it a nostalgic Zaku flavor, the gigantic Zaku 50 bears little resemblance to its namesake, replacing the arms with propellant tanks and mounting a pair of long grappling claws in place of legs. Its performance was impressive considering its origins, and its main armaments consisted of a large mega particle cannon mounted within its chest and a large beam saber stored in each "leg."
- Large Mega Particle Cannon
- Large Beam Saber
- Large Beam Shield
Although the Zaku 50 was made to revive Anaheim's failing fortunes, this did not occur.
- In the G Generation games, the Zaku 50's beam shield is represented by the "I-field (Strong)" special ability rather than the beam shield special ability.
