The GPB-06F Super Custom Zaku F2000 was a custom Gunpla built by Tatsu Shimano. It was based on the MS-06F Zaku II from the 1979-80 anime TV series Mobile Suit Gundam. The design was heavily customized with the addition of armor and weapons all over the main body. The Super Custom Zaku F2000 was fitted with multiple missile pods and machine guns, and it used a giant heat hawk as its main weapons. However, the addition of weapons and armor increased firepower and protection at the cost of mobility Its builder and pilot, Tatsu Shimano, carried a normal demeanor in the real world, but acted as a crazed berserker while playing Gunpla Battle. He challenged Hal Irei and Kenta Sakazaki to a two-on-one battle, where they exploited the weaknesses of the Gunpla’s construction to ultimately defeat Tatsu.
