New Earth Strategic Trust
Classification: Mid Range / Melee
After the success of the Mammoth model, the Zenithal was born out of NESF's aim for a better defense combat reFrame with improved mobility. The new heavy model features a thicker armor plating than its predecessor and is equipped with the DASH movement system. This allows it to briefly move in a straight line, closing the gap between enemy combatants.
Equipped with an improved version of the AR-G99BURST, the AR-X99BURST-TG can load armor piercing rounds and carry more ammo. The FW-BONEBUSTER allows the Zenithal to take out enemy reFrames foolish enough to get into close range, while the shoulder-mounted SH-REACT02H1 deflects enemy fire from a distance.
This build is highly inspired by the Zenith Wanzer from the Front Mission series. I actually combined elements from various Zenith models (FM1, FM3, Left Alive's Zenith) to make this version.

For those interested in LEGO mech building, I also have an eBook from 2015 called Mech Wars 2015 Instructional Primer. It contains some things I wrote about basic mech building, a bit about my Mech Warsuniverse, and all my early models from 2014-2015. If you’re looking for a resource that could help you start or even improve your mech building skills, you might find this eBook useful.
