NZ-999 Neo Zeong
|Namesake||Neo Zeon, MSN-02 Zeong,|
Technology & Combat Characteristics
The Neo Zeong is a massive base attack mobile armor and the final machine created by Neo Zeon, it is developed to be used in tandem with the MSN-06S Sinanju. Standing at a staggering 116 meters, it is the largest Zeon machine ever created in the Universal Century, dwarfing all mobile armors from previous conflicts. It is modeled after the MSN-02 Zeong used by Char Aznable as his final mobile suit in the One Year War. As such, the mobile armor lacks legs, instead it is equipped with two sturm boosters at the bottom. Should the boosters be destroyed, the Neo Zeong can rely on the skirt armor's own thrusters for mobility.
It is equipped with an impressive array of beam weapons, all based after the weapons used by its predecessors such as wire-guided funnel bits located in its hands and mega particle cannons on its body. The funnel bits in particular can also possess other enemy mobile suits and turn them against one another. For defense, the machine is mounted with multiple i-Field generators. The machine's deadliest weapon however is the PsycoShard Generator which can destroy all enemy weapons caught in its deployed field. The MSN-06S Sinanju serves as the control unit for the machine, serving an identical role to the RX-78GP03 Gundam "Dendrobium" and can utilize its beam sabers or rocket bazookas with its free hands. Thanks to an enhanced psycoframe cockpit, the Neo Zeong can also be piloted by Full Frontal's mind through his mask without being in the cockpit itself and utilize its weapons perfectly.
- 60mm Vulcan
- A pair of 60mm vulcan cannons are mounted in the head of the Sinanju.
- Beam Saber
- The beam sabers are part of Sinanju's original armaments and stored in its arms. They are used by the Sinanju when enemies close in on the Neo Zeong.
- Large Caliber High Mega Particle Cannon
- Mounted on Neo Zeong's waist, the cannon is capable of firing scatter beams as well as high output particle beam.
- Large Mega Particle Shoulder Cannon
- The Neo Zeong is armed with six Mega Particle Cannons of variable power outputs on its shoulders, four in front and two in the back.
- PsycoShard Generator
- The Neo Zeong's most powerful weapon, it is stored in the sides of the skirt armor and in the shoulder binders. Once deployed, they release a massive cluster of golden hexagonal shards, forming a halo like ring around the machine. The shards themselves then generate a massive psycowave that destroys every weapon onboard all machines caught in the wave by seemingly quickly overheating their e-caps and magazines. This even extends to weapons located in the machine such as head vulcans and beam sabers.
- Rocket Bazooka
- Used by the Sinanju within the Neo Zeong, the rocket bazookas are part of Sinanju's original armaments and are stored in the shoulders.
- The Neo Zeong is armed with a shield mounted on Sinanju's back.
- Wired Large Funnel Bits
- The Neo Zeong has five wired funnel bits on the tip of each arm, with two primary arms and four secondary arms in total. If the funnel bits are destroyed, the Neo Zeong can deploy a new set stored within the arm. As with most other types of funnels and bits, the Wired Large Funnel Bits is used to engage multiple enemy units or overwhelming a single target. However, the funnel bits come with a new feature, as each of the funnel bit is capable of latching onto a Mobile Suit and hijack it when the Neo Zeong is in Autopilot mode. The funnel bits contain a beam gun each and can be used when still attached to the arms or deployed. The funnel bits also possess enough armor strength to crush a normal mobile suit's head. While they lack the dexterity of regular mobile suit hands, they are still capable of pinning down enemy suits with accuracy.
Special Equipment & Features
- Autopilot System
- Sturm Booster
- Two massive propellant tanks ending in rocket thrusters are connected to the underside of the Neo Zeong, providing it with additional fuel for longer deployment times. Should the sturm boosters be destroyed, the thrusters on the underside of the mobile armor will take over.
- Psycoframe Cockpit
- The Neo Zeong, like the PMX-003 The O, has a pair of sub-arms stored underneath its front skirts. These can be used to grab onto enemy mobile suits which get close to the Neo Zeong
- Waist-mounted I-Field Generators
- The Neo Zeong has two I-Field Generators, which protects it from all beam attacks. The duration of the I-Field itself is unknown, though the actual coverage extends only to the main body of the mobile armor.

Notes & Trivia
- The Neo Zeong's name is derived from Neo Zeon, and MSN-02 Zeong.
- The unit fires its Rocket Bazookas in a similar manner to the RX-78GP03 Gundam "Dendrobium"
- It is the second-most expensive HGUC kit to date at ¥ 25,000, to be released in June 2014. It is also one of the biggest HGUC kits at 860 mm tall rivaling the Dendrobium at 900 mm in sheer bulk.
- Full Frontal's ability to control the Neo Zeong from outside the cockpit is a reference to one of the intended functions of MRX-009 Psyco Gundam when Four Murasame was to operate the machine through her brainwaves.
