Technology & Combat Characteristics
A modified space use mobile suit based on the EMS-10 Zudah, it is a phantom machine (ghost fighter) developed by Zimmad Company during the final stages of the One Year War. While a few machines were produced and not officially adopted by the Principality forces, several Zeon units utilized them. The defect of the Saturn engine still remained, but the problem was solved by strengthening the limiter while various other improvements were made such as incorporating parts of the YMS-15 Gyan.
- 135mm Anti-Ship Rifle
- Developed in the early phase of One Year War, the long-barreled 135mm anti-ship rifle is used by various models of Zeon mobile suits for long-range sniping attack against Federation's warships. It fires highly accurate solid rounds which can heavily damage E.F.F.'s Salamis-class cruiser. In firing position, the anti-ship rifle must be held by both MS manipulators to reduce its massive recoils.
System Equipment & Features
- External Propellant Tanks
- An external tank used for propellant storage. This extra propellant greatly extends a mobile suit's operating range, and enables it to stay in combat longer. When the propellant is consumed, the tank can be discarded to reduce the mobile suit's weight. These tanks use a two-layered construction, with one layer containing propellant, and the other holding extra coolant.
The Zeon remnants who called themselves Falaq modified the EMS-10 Zudah, which was developed by Zimmad Company. The faulty limiter on the Saturn engine was reinforced, and it utilized parts from the YMS-15 Gyan. It was given the name "black snake" (Kurohebi) due to the snakeskin pattern camouflage it has.
