Technical and Historical Notes

 

With war coming to Earth, ZAFT designs various mobile suits to attain supremacy over the entire planet. The UMF-5 ZnO is one of two suits designed specifically for amphibious combat, along with the UMF-4A GOOhN. As an aquatic unit, the ZnO specializes in high-speed maneuverability and can transform into a "swim mode" to travel at high speeds and ram enemy mobile suits or vessels. The ZnO's armament consists of hand-mounted phonon maser cannons, which are high-powered lasers that can travel through water. Other armaments include two 6-tube missile launchers mounted down the ZnO's chest. In combat, ZnOs are usually deployed from Vosgulov class submarines and operate in conjunction with GOOhNs and on occasion the UWMF-1/S GINN WASP Type. ZnOs are widely used across Earth's oceans, and many units participate in Operation Spit Break, ZAFT's unsuccessful attack on the Earth Alliance's JOSH-A base in Alaska.
