The AMS-129 Geara Zulu was a general purpose mobile suit developed by Anaheim Electronics for Full Frontal’s Neo Zeon forces, nicknamed the “Sleeves.” It served as the successor to the AMS-119 Geara Doga used during the Second Neo Zeon War of UC 0093. The Geara Zulu employed Zeon design elements dating all the way back to the One Year War’s MS-06F Zaku II, including a shoulder shield and spiked armor. Decorative chest and wrist markings gave the Neo Zeon their “Sleeves” nickname. The Geara Zulu could utilize a variety of armaments, including a beam hawk, a beam machine gun, a beam Gatling gun and sturm fausts. Some pilots carried customized armaments, such as Gilboa Sant’s Lange Bruno gun plus or Cuaron’s beam sniper rifle. Following the Laplace Incident, several units came into the possession of the Republic of Zeon and saw use in UC 0097 during the Phoenix Hunt incident.
