The NZ-999 II Neo Zeong (セカンドネオ・ジオング?) is a mobile armor that appears in the film Mobile Suit Gundam Narrative.[1]

Design & Development

The NZ-999 Neo Zeong was developed as an exclusive machine for Full Frontal; the II (read as 'second') Neo Zeong was assembled using spare parts created during the development of the original. A new frame was added to the front of the shoulder weapon bay in order to increase the rigidity, and the front hatch of the weapon bay was removed. The added frame is painted red, becoming a characteristic feature. In terms of armament, wired guidance function was incorporated into the arms, making movements reminiscent of the MSN-02 Zeong's possible.[2]

Armaments

  • 60mm Vulcan Gun
Mounted in the head of the Sinanju Stein, the core unit of the II Neo Zeong, the pair of vulcan guns are not very powerful and typically unable to penetrate mobile suit armor, but they are useful in restricting enemy movements, intercepting missiles and the likes.
  • Beam Saber
The beam sabers are part of Sinanju Stein's original armaments and stored in its arms. They are used by the Sinanju Stein when enemies close in on the II Neo Zeong.
  • Large Caliber High Mega Particle Cannon
Mounted on II Neo Zeong's waist, this cannon has a limited rate of fire but the highest output of all the unit's ranged beam weaponry.
  • Large Mega Particle Shoulder Cannon
The II Neo Zeong has six Mega Particle Cannons on its shoulders, four in front and two in the back. These cannons can fire a scatter beam or a focused beam, and the latter is capable of punching a hole through a colony's wall.
  • Psyco Shard Generator
A weapon based on psycoframe technology, it is the II Neo Zeong's most powerful armament. The generators are mounted within the sides of the skirt armor and in the shoulder binders. Once deployed, they release a massive cluster of golden hexagonal shards; forming a halo like ring around the machine. The shards themselves then generate a massive psycofield.
  • Rocket Bazooka
Used by the Sinanju Stein within the II Neo Zeong, the rocket bazookas are stored in the II Neo Zeong's shoulders. Each shot is capable of destroying a single MS and can puncture the armor of most battleships.
  • Shield
The same shield as used by Sinanju Stein, it is mounted on the MS's back when the suit is in the II Neo Zeong.
  • Wired Large Funnel Bit
The two primary arms of the II Neo Zeong have five large wired funnel bits on the tip of each arm, and when they are destroyed, a spare set stored within the arms can be deployed as replacements. The four secondary arms also have the same wired large funnels bits, but they are stored in the arms and deployed only when required. As with most funnels and bits, the wired large funnel bits are used to engage multiple enemy units or overwhelm a single target, and each of them is armed with a beam gun that can be used while attached to the arms or when deployed as wire-guided remote weapons. The funnel bits also can release 3 drill-tipped wires for latching onto a Mobile Suit and hijacking it. Once hijacked, the enemy MS can be used by the II Neo Zeong to engage other enemies. Although the bits lack the dexterity of regular mobile suit hands, they are still capable of pinning down enemy suits and has enough strength to crush a normal mobile suit's head.

Special Equipment & Features

  • Sturm Booster
Two massive propellant tanks ending in rocket thrusters are connected to the underside of the II Neo Zeong, providing it with higher mobility and additional fuel for longer deployment times as well as improved cruising range. Should these sturm boosters be destroyed, the main thrusters on the underside of the mobile armor will take over. The Sturm Boosters also have to be removed when the II Neo Zeong is landing.
  • Psycoframe Cockpit
The Psycoframe is a technology that builds the brainwave-to-machine code translator known as Psycommu into the metal frame of a Mobile Suit. This allows a Newtype pilot to mentally connect with their mobile suits operating system, similar to the bio-sensor, and directly issue commands via the pilots brainwaves. The technology is incomplete and many commands must still be imputed via traditional controls. Arguably, a mobile suit with a psycoframe and Newtype pilot will have a greater response time than an ordinary suit and pilot.
  • Landing Gear
The II Neo Zeong has three landing gears, two stored underneath its front skirt armor and one mounted in the rear skirt armor. Due to their large size, the two front landing gears can also serve as sub-arm units to grab onto enemy mobile suits which get close to the II Neo Zeong.
  • Waist I-Field Generator
The II Neo Zeong has four waist I-Field Generators, two at the front and two at the rear, which protects it from all beam attacks. The duration of the I-Field itself is unknown, though the actual coverage extends only to the main body of the mobile armor.
  • Weapon Containers
The shoulder compartment of the II Neo Zeong contains weapon containers that can be used to store the Sinanju Stein's rocket bazookas, as well as other weaponry such as missiles.
