Overview[edit | edit source]

The ZEU-5S was one of two prototype designs before the simpler-to-build -6S went into production. An LRM 15 was chosen for the right arm and an Ultra Autocannon 5 was used in the left arm. As a demonstration prototype, it was equipped with Double Heat Sinks and an Artemis IV system.


Strengths[edit | edit source]

  • -30% Ultra AC/5 Jam Chance quirk.
  • Three missile hardpoints.
    • Supports as many tubes as you want: up to 45 with three LRM 15s.

Weaknesses[edit | edit source]

  • Low Ammo
  • Poor armor for an assault 'Mech
