In the latter part of the Zanscare War of UC 0153, BESPA fielded many prototype units in battle. One such unit was the ZMT-S29 Zanneck, which in essence was a mobile suit-sized version of the Keilas Guilie attack satellite. Like Keilas Guilie, the Zanneck utilized two particle accelerators to power its powerful mega beam cannon. A similar mega cannon system was also used by the ZMT-S33S Gottrlatan. The Zanneck required a flying saucer base to act as a stabilizer when it fired its cannon. With its beam cannon, the Zanneck was able to hit targets on Earth from high in the atmosphere, or across long distances in a space battle. The blast from the Zanneck’s beam cannon could only be deflected by the LM314V21 Victory 2 Gundam‘s mega beam shield or its wings of light. Though the Zanneck contained seats for two pilots, only one was necessary to operate the unit. Since the Zanneck could attack without warning, the only way to detect it was through the sound of bells that Newtypes like Uso Ewin and Shahkti Kareen could detect. The Zanneck was first deployed on June 8, when it began attacking BESPA’s former European base at Largaine. Only one unit was known to have been built, piloted by the unstable Fuala Griffon and Kil Tandon, and it was destroyed near the war’s end by Uso’s V2 Gundam.
