The ZM-S08GC Zolo Custom was a minor variation on BESPA’s standard ZM-S08G Zolo. It was identical to the standard Zolo in every respect, with the exception of a sensor scope mounted over the left eye. This sensor scope extended the Zolo Custom’s range and allowed it to zoom in better on targets to snipe them from a distance. One unit was operated in Kasarelia by Mathis Walker, but it was destroyed in combat by Uso Ewin’s LM314V21 Victory 2 Gundam.
