During the Bloody Valentine War, the Earth Alliance was slow to introduce mobile suits as replacements for the aging mobile armor TS-MA2 Moebius. Even after developing their own mobile suits, the Alliance continued to experiment with mobile armor designs, such as the YMAF-X6BD Zamza-Zah. The crab-like Zamza-Zah dwarfed the fighter-like Moebius and was operated by one pilot and two gunners. The Zamza-Zah was heavily armed with a wide array of weapons, including four energy cannons, four claw-like hyper-oscillation crushers, four cannons, four low-pressure guns and 16 CIWS guns. In addition to these armaments, the Zamza-Zah was also equipped with a powerful positron deflector shield, capable of blocking a direct shot from a battleship-level positron cannon. During the early stages of the Second Bloody Valentine War in late C.E. 73, the Alliance deployed a Zamza-Zah unit to attack the ZAFT battleship Minerva after it left the territorial waters of the Orb Union. The Zamza-Zah was ultimately destroyed at close range with a beam saber attack from Shinn Asuka’s ZGMF-X56S/α Force Impulse Gundam. Months later, the Alliance deployed more Zamza-Zah units at their Daedalus lunar base and near the Requiem cannon’s Fauré relay station.
