Technical and Historical Notes

 

Developed shortly after the end of the Babylonia Conflict, the XM-08 Zondo Gei is the product of the Buch Concern answering the Crossbone Vanguard's demand for a smaller mobile suit. Despite an overall height of only 10 meters, the Zondo Gei maintains performance on par with its predecessors, and shares many of their weapons. In order to make up for their numerical disadvantage, the members of Bera Ronah's Crossbone Vanguard use many leftover units in their forces. However, despite modifications such as a new engine and an anti-beam coating mantle (covering only the legs so as not to interfere with the main thrusters), nothing can change the fact that by that point the Zondo Gei is 10 years old and severely outmatched. The Vanguard often captures Jovian mobile suits, particularly the EMS-06 Batara, to replace this aging machine.
