Zaku II CQB - Ver. Te by Tekka-Croe Zaku II CQB - Ver. Te by Tekka-Croe
I'd had this sitting around unfinished for about a week, so today I got it inked and colored. This is my own original variant of the Zaku II, the CQB (Close Quarters Battle). It is equipped with a compact beam machine gun (not pictured), a heat-tomahawk (not pictured), and a pair of sonic daggers which can be stored in the forearms (as pictured). It is designed with mobility in mind, sporting a pair of small shields, rather than the standard large shield and spiked pauldron.

A zaku with CQB should be as deadly as Naked Snake aka Big Boss. :iconbigbossplz:
Real good concept. =)

Is it me or some of the fans of Gundam franchize make better mobile suits than the creators. ^^ Zaku one of my personal favorite mobile suits, alongside with Gouf custom, and the Gelgoog marine/jaeger type.

Very nice Zaku II you got their keep up the good work. You know you could change the forearms and sonic daggers to be a hidden blade like from assassins creed. It would save time and give it a element of suprise to it.

I'm sure this would have gotten the stamp of approval from the Zeons. Great work!

Other way around, actually. Dawn uses this thing's dagger. I needed a dagger design, and I felt that this one turned out well.

Interesting although I think it could use the R type zakus extra leg thrusters. It is supposed to be a high mobility unit after all.

Looks like its got heavier armor than the standard model, wouldn't that be a disadvantage in close end combat?

Overall though I really like the design!

It might just be that I set the full view size for this to be larger than my first Zaku. In most respects this is just a recolor of of the standard Zaku. It is bulkier in only the knees and forehead, the forehead simply being artistic preference. As for the knees, I figured that a larger knee-guard would allow for larger motors in the knees, allowing the legs to bend more quickly.

Anyways, thanks. It's always good to get feedback.
