Technical and Historical Notes

 

For the invasion of Earth, ZAFT created various models of mobile suits, including the transforming ground assault artillery unit TFA-2 ZuOOT. Throughout the Bloody Valentine War, ZAFT deployed ZuOOTs across the world from North Africa to the failed Operation Spit Break in Alaska. In the designated tank mode, the ZuOOT could speed across land with its tank treads, but it was no more maneuverable than the standard Linear Tank used by the Earth Alliance. Because of this poor maneuverability, ZuOOTs often operated in conjunction with the highly maneuverable quadruped TMF/A-802 BuCUE. The ZuOOT's main armament included twin shoulder-mounted cannons, but it was also equipped with vulcan guns, an arm-mounted cannon and a handheld machine gun. Despite its relatively poor performance, ZAFT created an upgraded model after the war, the TFA-4DE GAZuOOT.
