Zenith wanzer 00

Zenith LXXI-HB

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.


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.
