Technology and Combat Characteristics
The YAMS-130 Krake Zulu is a limited produced mobile suit by the Sleeves, built using some parts from the AMS-129 Geara Zulu and the MSN-01 Psycomu Test High Mobility Type Zaku II. Since half of its body is actually from a remains of the Psycomu Test High Mobility Type Zaku II, it usually shares some of its weaponry but the balance of the whole machine makes it problematic when it comes to mobility. Similar to the Geara Zulu, the Krake Zulu is armed with a Beam Machine Gun and a Shield, but also has two Wire-guided mega-beam cannons derrived from the Psycomu Test High Mobility Type Zaku II.
- Wire-guided Mega Beam Cannon
- The Krake Zulu each equipped with a mega beam cannon of adjustable output. Each of these are wire-guided and controlled by the Quasi-Psycommu System.
- Beam Machine Gun
- The standard armament of most mobile suits is a beam rifle powered by a rechargeable energy cap. If the energy cap runs out of energy it can be replaced with a fresh one stored on the front skirt armor. The rifle design is (aesthetically) similar to that of the WWII German Sturmgewehr-44. The machine gun can be fired in fully-automatic, firing yellow beams. Technical specifications indicate that the beam rifle possesses a modular design that allows equipment to be added and removed, thus altering the beam rifles overall abilities.
- Beam Hawk
- The only close combat weapon of the Geara Zulu is a single beam tomahawk, which, when not in use is mounted on the rear skirt of the suit. The head of the beam tomahawk has two beam emitters, one on the side that emits the axe-blade, and the second on top that emits a beam spike that can be used for stabbing attacks.
Special Equipment & Features

A few of the Krake Zulus were produced by the Sleeves, in which one of them were painted in Angelo's purple color scheme. The Krake Zulu itself later became the basis for the YAMS-132 Rozen Zulu.
