Technology & Combat Characteristics
The head of the Mass Production Z Gundam is based on that of the MSA-003 Nemo and the overall geometry of the body is that of the original Zeta Gundam. Its armaments are simple and consist of a mega beam rifle and a pair of beam sabers which can be stored in recharge racks on the hip armor of the suit.
- Beam Saber
- The standard close range armament for most Mobile Suits. The beam saber is a small cylindrical device held in the mobile suit's hands when operated and is powered by an energy capacitor that is recharged from special racks. The beam saber is capable of cutting through any metal that has not been treated with anti-beam coating. The Mass Production Type Ζ Gundam is equipped with two beam sabers stored in recharge rack on the hips.
- Mega Beam Rifle
- Unlike normal Suits, the Mass Production Type Ζ Gundam is equipped with a more powerful Mega Beam Rifle. The weapon's beam can destroy a mobile suit with a single hit, or even a standard mobile suit shield with constant fire, however it's high energy costs made it far from ideal for rapid fire.
After the high performance of the MSZ-006 Zeta Gundam became evident, Anaheim Electronics planned to mass-produce the suit. However, this design turned out to be inferior to their other project, the MSR-00100 Hyaku Shiki Kai and its development was halted. In U.C.0094, a Mass Production Type Ζ Gundam boarded by Fresberg Corps pilot Pesco Lingua was deployed for technical tests with the MSN-001X Gundam Delta Kai at Area X of the Mariana Base.
