The MS-05L Zaku I Sniper Type was featured briefly in the Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn animated series but originated from the 2006 Harmony of Gundam project. This project tasked famous mechanical designer Hajime Katoki with creating a series of official Universal Century Mobile Suit Variations for use in the Gundam Video Game franchises. The MS-05L Zaku I Sniper Type is one of the few designs from this project to be recreated in the HGUC lineup!
Included with the MS-05L Zaku I Sniper Type, you’ll find:
- Beam Sniper Rifle
- 105mm Machine Gun
- Back-Mounted Sub-Generator
The MS-05L Zaku I Sniper Type has some interesting gimmicks compared to other High Grade Zeon MS. An articulated kneepad replaces the original knee armor, allowing for enhanced stability while firing the Beam Sniper. When the unit is firing from a prone position, the updated monoeye articulates along the middle track for a better view.
Weapons and Other Notable Attributes –
Use the included cable to attach the Beam Sniper Rifle to the Back-Mounted Sub-Generator for use. Bandai even threw in an open-palmed left manipulator for supporting the rifle. If an enemy Mobile Suit gets the jump on the MS-05L Zaku I Sniper Type, it can switch to the 105mm Machine Gun for close-quarters engagements.
