ZAKU 2.0's TUNDRA PATROL by ChihayaCake ZAKU 2.0's TUNDRA PATROL by ChihayaCake
Sorry for the subpar pictures, I forgot my SD card at home and was only able to take two shots D;<

Also sorry it isn't very actiony, I plan on using this as an info pic for my Zaku's, since they don't have one in my gallery..

The MS-06 Zaku II is the basic all around grunt unit of the Duchy of Zeon, it's the second generation version of one of the very first mass production combat mobile suits, the Zaku I. It's equipped with a giant "machine gun" that basically fires what is equivalent to tank shells at rapid fire, a giant metal axe that has a blade that can heat up to cut through armor, and optionally, a "bazooka" and rocket packs on the legs. They were created as terror weapons (initally the Federation did not have Mobile Suits of their own, leading to the creation of the mobile suit know as RX-78 Gundam Mk. I, or Gundam as everyone calls it and as the series is named) designed for combat in zero gravity and also for Colony Assaults (In the Gundam universe, there are floating colonies in space, which..pretty much in every series are hotly contested/blown up/gassed/dropped onto earth/stolen by crazy ass pirates/attacked by killer AI buzzsaws/assaulted in wars....yeah living on the sucks..).

Anyways, they're heavily armored, reliable (until the feds invented laser weapons anyway..), easy to pilot and they practically last forever considering the fact that they keep popping up in the series even centuries into the future.

And they look coooool :D they're walking tanks after all!

In case you're wondering what became of the Zaku in the future (IT BECAME TWICE AS AWESOME):

Awesome work. I haven't done any work on Gundams in a while. But I still love them. Especially Zakus.
