==Technology & Combat Characteristics==
 
==Technology & Combat Characteristics==
The Kerberos variation appears to be designed for long range support, based on it's main armament consisting mostly of trajectory weapons and grenades. Adding to the fact that it was made as a support unit is the compatibility with the Wizard Pack, adding more ranged weaponry to it's arsenal.
+
Besides the standard armament of the [[ZGMF-1000 ZAKU Warrior]], Kerberos ZAKU Warrior is also equipped with Beam Fang systems and beam cannons in the "heads" of the Kerberos Wizard, a Wizard pack designed specifically for close combat. The Beam Fang system is a close combat weapon system, it emits short beam blades of various forms and can be handheld. Each of the Kerberos Wizard's "heads" is also equipped with its own tracking and target acquisition system, they are thus capable of attacking different directions simultaneously.

:This grenade model appears to be same one used by the others ZAKU Warrior variations that employ trajectory weapons

:While other suits usually use beam sabers as close combat weapon, the ZAKU instead uses a single MA-M8 beam tomahawk. Thanks to its more aerodynamic form, the beam tomahawk can be thrown quite easily, granting it limited ranged combat abilities. When not in use, the tomahawk is stored inside a single physical shield, which is mounted on the left shoulder and which serves as the only defense of the suit. The shield also mounts two extra energy packs for the beam assault rifle.

In this form, the horns can be combined, forming a dual edge beam blade.

The Kerberos ZAKU Warrior is a mobile suit of ZAFT in the Cosmic Era. It appears in Mobile Suit Gundam SEED C.E. 73 Δ Astray and Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Frame Astrays.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

Besides the standard armament of the ZGMF-1000 ZAKU Warrior, Kerberos ZAKU Warrior is also equipped with Beam Fang systems and beam cannons in the "heads" of the Kerberos Wizard, a Wizard pack designed specifically for close combat. The Beam Fang system is a close combat weapon system, it emits short beam blades of various forms and can be handheld. Each of the Kerberos Wizard's "heads" is also equipped with its own tracking and target acquisition system, they are thus capable of attacking different directions simultaneously.

Armaments

  • Beam Tomahawk/Shield
While other suits usually use beam sabers as close combat weapon, the ZAKU instead uses a single MA-M8 beam tomahawk. Thanks to its more aerodynamic form, the beam tomahawk can be thrown quite easily, granting it limited ranged combat abilities. When not in use, the tomahawk is stored inside a single physical shield, which is mounted on the left shoulder and which serves as the only defense of the suit. The shield also mounts two extra energy packs for the beam assault rifle.
  • Hand Grenades
Stored on the waist of the suit, four hand grenades are among the standard armament of the ZAKU. Several different types can be carried, including fragmentation, high-explosive, and smoke grenades.
  • Beam Fang System
Close combat system of the Kerberos Wizard pack, it is mounted on the horn on top of the "heads" of the Wizard pack. It can emit 2 beam blades, 1 pointing directly forward and another pointing to the side. When the Kerberos Wizard is mounted on the ZAKU Warrior/ZAKU Phantom, the horns can be removed and be used as a handheld beam blade. In this form, the horns can be combined, forming a dual edge beam blade.
  • Beam cannon
A pair of beam cannons located in the "mouth" of each "head" of the Kerberos Wizard Pack. Due to the design of the targeting system on the "heads", the cannons' effective range are shorten but in return, they gain higher firing rate which is useful for restricting the enemy during close combat.
  • MMI-M633 Beam Assault Rifle
The primary ranged weapon of the ZAKU is an MMI-M633 beam assault rifle, which unlike most beam rifles does not draw power from the mobile suit's battery. Instead, the rifle has its own independent battery, stored in a replaceable clip (similar to the technology used in the Eurasian Federation's Hyperion series), with a pair of extra clips attached to a shield mounted on the ZAKU's left shoulder.

Special Equipment & Features

  • Hardpoint

History

The first belonged to Isaac Mau, a ZAFT soldier assigned by Chairman Durandal to watch over and protect the Martian ship Acidalium. The second belonged to Suu, a violent mercenary who fought for ZAFT in Republic of East Asia.
