Technology & Combat Characteristics
The Noctiluca ZAKU Warrior is an amphibious assault configuration of the ZGMF-1000 ZAKU Warrior achieved through the equipping of the EX-AAL Noctiluca Wizard, which is one of the interchangeable armament packs in the "Wizard System". The Noctiluca ZAKU Warrior has an additional head fin with extra sensors while the new backpack, movable shoulder fins and feet mounted skid plates help the suit to skim across the water surface at a high speed of 50 knots and above. The suit can also move underwater but its diving depth is limited compared to ZAFT's other amphibious MS. The armament of the suit consists of hand grenades, beam assault rifle, homing torpedoes, anti-submarine depth charges and large torpedoes. Due to the modifications required, the Noctiluca ZAKU Warrior is identical in looks to the Noctiluca ZAKU Phantom, an example of the latter is Kaite Madigan's Noctiluca ZAKU Phantom which has a custom color scheme.
- Hand Grenade
- Four hand grenades are stored on the suit's side skirt armor. Several different types can be carried, including fragmentation, high-explosive, and smoke grenades.
- Mark-13 Homing Torpedo
- The Noctiluca ZAKU Warrior is equipped with four homing torpedos mounted on the skid plates, two on each plate, for underwater combat.
- M25 Anti-Submarine Depth Charge
- Another underwater combat weapon, the depth charges are stored at the back of the skid plates.
- MMI-M633 Beam Assault Rifle
- The primary ranged weaponry of the ZAKU series, this beam firearm's design emphasizes destructive power and rapid-fire capabilities. Its accuracy is lowered somewhat as a result, but the scattering of its beam shots allows for simultaneous attack of multiple targets. Unlike most beam rifles, it does not draw power from the mobile suit's battery. Instead, the rifle is powered by the energy stored in a replaceable drum-type magazine. When not in use, this weapon could be stored on the back waist armor.
- 144cm Large Torpedo
- An optional handheld weaponry, the Noctiluca ZAKU Warrior can carry one large torpedo in each hand. The large torpedo is not only wider in diameter but is also longer, it is almost as tall as a MS.

When ZAFT rolled out the "New Millennium" series of mobile suits, it gave the ZAKU mobile suits produced as part of it the ability to utilize the Wizard system to adapt to different combat situations and environments. One such ZAKU configuration is the amphibious assault Noctiluca ZAKU Warrior. Several Noctiluca ZAKU Warriors are deployed alongside ZAFT's other amphibious MS during the attack on Heaven's Base. Professional MS pilot, Kaite Madigan is known to have operated a customized Noctiluca ZAKU Phantom.
