The Zenith is one of the most iconic wanzer models in the Front Mission series, appearing in all canon installments except Front Mission Alternative, with only the Frost being its equal counterpart. It is the flagship wanzer line of the Jade Metal-Lyman of O.C.U. Australia.

OverviewEdit

Zenith and its variants are well-balanced machines that are employed heavily by the O.C.U. military. It is deployed primarily as assault units, although it is also capable of melee roles. Although developed for use in the O.C.U., the Zenith is imported by companies, organizations, and private militaries around the world. This is reflected by the fact that as seen in various installments, Zenith and its variants have been seen deployed by many different military units, even the U.S.N. were seen employing some Zenith wanzers in Huffman Island. One Zenith wanzer was also seen in the base of Japanese Defense Force (J.D.F.), suggesting that the J.D.F. also employed the model.

In Front Mission Evolved, the Zenith LXXI-HB is the latest model in Jade Metal-Lyman's signature series. Widely used throughout the OCU, The LXXI-HB offers a well-balanced, all-terrain performance, making it a pilot's popular choice. In fact, the Zenith series has been so successful that the Jade Metal-Lyman has so far failed to establish other wanzer lines. When production of the series was temporarily suspended, the manufacturer's net income loss was so significant that it was forced to resume its development of the valuable Zenith model.

The "H" in the designation indicates that the model uses a hydrogen fuel cell engine, while the "B" indicates that its manufacture is military-grade.
