The ZM-S22S Rig Shokew Beam Rotor Equipment Type was a variation of the Zanscare Empire’s standard Rig Shokew. Used by the Yellowjackets, this variant was nearly identical to the standard Rig Shokew, although it mounted a beam rotor on its left forearm. Due to its green color scheme, the units were said to resemble grasshoppers when performing jumps. Its armaments included a beam rifle, beam sabers and beam string emitters.
