Technical and Historical Notes

 

During the One Year War, one of the Principality of Zeon's most fearsome weapons is the MA-08 Big Zam. This massive mobile armor is originally developed for mass production, but the base model is refined into a much more expensive form. As a result, the planned mass production version of the Big Zam is more than just a copy of the original. Highly simplified from its predecessor, the Mass Production Big Zam is designed for ground combat. To lower production costs, the I-field of the original is replaced with an anti-beam coating applied to the armor. The Mass Production Big Zam's primary weapon is a large mega particle cannon identical to the original's, but features an armored shutter that can close over the cannon's aperture. Due to the massive output of the cannon, the Big Zam can only fire while stationary, and even then needs special support legs to keep from falling over. On the other hand, the mass production model features an improved cooling system that eliminates the original's overheating problems. The Mass Production Big Zam's only other weapons are a set of missile launchers mounted at the top of its legs. Zeon's higher-ups intend for the Mass Production Big Zam to be the spearhead of their invasion of Jaburo. However, the design isn't ready in time for the failed surprise attack on Jaburo in late November UC 0079. After that point, Zeon is too focused on holding what it already has to worry about recapturing Earth, so the Mass Production Big Zam is never built.
