Technology & Combat Capabilities
The Zock was less like a mobile suit and more like a mobile armor in design. The front and back were completely symmetrical and used a 360 degree mono-eye camera. It was armed with eight mega particle cannons, four mounted in the torso of each side. There was also a photon maser gun built in the head for in-water combat. The Zock's feet and legs were mostly useless except for hovering, much like the MS-09B Dom. The thrusters in armor skirt and feet provided the lift needed to make it hover.
- Phonon Maser Gun
- At the top of the Zock's body is a phonon maser gun capable of firing at targets above it, and can be used to great effect when the Zock is cruising underwater.
- Mega Particle Cannons
- On the Zock's body are eight mega particle cannons, 4 on the front and back, giving it 180 degrees of line of fire.
- Iron Nail
- For melee combat, the Zock is armed with a pair of claws, known as iron nails, on each forearm. They can be used to grapple or smash enemies.
The Zock was produced at California Base, an Earth Federation base captured early in the war, in the last few weeks of the Zeon occupation on Earth. The suit was more like a hovering gun emplacement than a true mobile suit. It could cover a wide area of attack and was very deadly thanks to its mega particle cannons and its symmetrical design. In the end, though, only 3 Zock units were produced with one of them serving under Commander Char Aznable's forces in the siege of the Federation's Jaburo General Headquarters on November 30, U.C. 0079.
