The ZGMF-X3000Q Providence ZAKU was an experimental mobile suit that combined the weaponry of the ZGMF-X13A Providence Gundam and the heavily modified frame from a ZGMF-1001 ZAKU Phantom. Powered by a hyper deuterion reactor, the Providence ZAKU’s main armament was the DRAGOON (Disconnected Rapid Armament Group Overlook Operation Network) remote weaponry featured on the Providence Gundam. However, its backpack was redesigned, and it featured new beam spike equipment type DRAGOONs that were later featured on the ZGMF-X666S Legend Gundam. The Providence ZAKU also carried a standard beam rifle, and its shoulder armor could fold downward to mount a pair of ZAKU Phantom shoulder shields. Only one prototype unit was constructed, and it was destroyed in early C.E. 74 during the final battle of the Second Bloody Valentine War by an Orb MVF-M12A Ootsukigata.
