What started off as MSV design by Hajime Katoki (hence the Ka signature sign on top), Zaku I Sniper Type gained enough popularity to be featured briefly in Gundam UC episode 4. Piloted by Yonem Kirks, Zaku Sniper was one of the main mecha during the invasion of Torrington Base.
Admittingly, it does look pretty badass. Perhaps I’m biased when it comes to snipers, but I like how the odd bits (right kneecap and the mono eye) are quite practical. This will turn out to be very interesting.
August release, pre-order starts now in Japan.
