The prototype mobile suit RMS-142 Xeku Zwei was the second machine of the Xeku series developed at the asteroid base Pezun. Designed for both heavy armament and high mobility, the Xeku Zwei was equipped with huge thruster blocks and powerful boosters, making it highly maneuverable despite its large size and tremendous weight. The multipurpose latch and mount system on the shoulders of the Xeku Zwei gave it twice the carrying capacity of the Xeku Eins series, and additional hardpoints and storage racks were distributed across its body. The mobile suit was also equipped with a total of four rudimentary sub-arms to hold and support all its extra weapons. Its standard equipment included the long-range beam smartgun and disk radome of the RMS-141 Xeku Eins (Type 2 Armament), as well as three missile pods in its front skirt armor. A 120mm machine gun and six large rocket launchers were stored on its back. Although the Xeku Zwei had great firepower and high performance, its development was halted by the destruction of Pezun during the Pezun Rebellion. The rebel New Desides brought three prototype units with them to Ayers City, and these surviving machines were deployed in the final battle against the mobile suits of Taskforce Alpha on April 4, UC 0088.
