Description

Designed as a rapid reaction Heavy Killer, the ZEU-3SK was meant to fill the need of Periphery States requiring an assault that could provide enough of a punch to put down any aggressive pirate leader, and enough speed to get to where the fight was needed. Armed with a dual-purpose loadout, a Medium Rifle and trio of Medium Lasers provide consistent firepower as a Flamer defends against pesky infantry. However, for close-range punch, the ZEU-3SK carries a Reloading RL 40 and a Heavy Cannon, as well as four Jump Jets to ensure it can get behind enemies with the one-shot weapons. In the end the ZEU-3SK was not very successful, being compared to the far more reliable and longer lasting Victor, and fell out of favor.

Description

The Zeus 5T is an original model Zeus and makes use of Star League technology to make a much more deadly mech. Just as fast as the -6S, the -5T switches the autocannon for a devastating array of energy weapons which combined with the -5T's double heat sinks is a brutal combination.

Description

Description

The most recent of Periphery Armory, Inc's many designs to hit the market, the ZEU-6PA is a hell and a half to deal with. A Heavy Rifle and Medium Cannon combo, the old PAI Special, do solid work early in engagements. A Rocket Launcher-15 gives solid burst potential on top of the Cannon. A brace of Chemical Lasers, both Large and Medium, back up the bigger guns with consistent chip damage. The Zeus's natural high speed ensure nothing's beyond the mech's reach. When you need quality, think Periphery Armory, Inc!

Description

The ZEU-6Y was much maligned in its day and was relegated to the dustbin of history. However, it wasn't forgotten by everyone. A small mech refit facility in the Free Worlds League rediscovered the design and decided to upgrade it with modern technology. The Binary Laser Cannon was kept but in the place of the other weapons are a Gauss Rifle and a LRM-15, both with two tons of ammo. A TAG and Laser AMS give the design some interesting tactical options on the battlefield. Double heat sinks and a Light Fusion Engine keep the mech running and cool.

It carried as its main weapon an ER PPC in its left arm, retained as back-up for long-range combat the LRM-15 launcher and replaced the large laser for an ER Large Laser. For close combat, the 9S replaced the two medium lasers for Medium Pulse Lasers.

Though the extended range laser was kept, the medium pulse lasers had to be removed to provide enough space for the modifications.

Description

The 9T variant of the Zeus was introduced in 3062 just prior to the civil war and carried the 6T to its next logical step. The 'Mech was built with a Light Fusion Engine and carried thirteen and a half tons of Ferro-Fibrous armor. As its primary weapon, the 9T carried an ER PPC, backed by an LRM-15 launcher with an Artemis IV fire control system for greater missile accuracy and twice as much ammunition capacity. Also, for long-range combat, the 9T carried an ER Large Laser, while for close combat the 'Mech was armed with two Medium Pulse Lasers and an ER Medium Laser.

Description

There are a few different approaches you can take when outfitting an 80-ton walking engine of destruction. Most MechWarriors tend to either prioritize armor or weaponry. One particularly talented Lyran pilot, however, took a very unconventional approach and used his nearly-preternatural piloting skills inside the cockpit of his assigned ZEU-6S. Named "Skokomish" after his ancestral Native American tribe on Terra, the pilot dubbed Sealth gained incredible respect for his ability to harass the enemy while dodging their return fire, and distracting the opfor from the line of Atlases plodding over the hill. Sealth returned to his home planet after his tour of duty, taking Skokomish with him. It's unknown if this particular 'Mech is the actual Skokomish, but pilots since have invested unknown millions of C-Bills in an attempt to even partially recreate the skill of its original owner.
