A hand-held rocket propelled grenade that is good for a single shot. Zeon mobile suits were often equipped with at least one Sturm Faust during the One Year War. It was designed before the beginning of the One Year War as an anti-ship weapon. It can be used both in space and under gravity. Stored on attachment on the outside of the legs or the waist. Used mainly for anti-ship attacks during the early days of the war the Sturm Faust likely made a good anti-mobile suit weapon during the latter days as Zeon mobile suits could be equipped with both a Sturm Faust and a second more standard ranged weapon giving them great versatility. Because it is a non-guided weapon, it is difficult to hit targets with high mobility.
