A single Genosaurer was given to the Guylos Empire’s Eisen Dragoons, who proceeded to adapt the zoid to suit their hard-and-fast tactics. The result was an incredibly fast and fearsome zoid that was as unforgiving to its pilot as it was to its enemies.
It was decided early on that a high-speed zoid had no business holding still and so, the majority of components and foot-locks for the Charged Particle Canon were removed, save for the heat vents to help deal with cooling issues. Instead, the Geno Comet’s most powerful weapon is a conventional, ableit powerful 360mm Beam Cannon mounted on its face. The 120mm rifles were also sacrificed to make room for the high-output ion thrusters. To further increase the zoid’s speed, ion pulse jets were fixed to the tail, and the zoid’s upper legs received new armor with upgraded boosters. Altogether, the new additions gave the Geno Comet not only the fastest top speed for a ‘Saurer to date, but also a flight ceiling of 100 meters. As if that were not enough, each piece of its new leg armor also sports a 70mm linear rail gun.
In addition to a new long-range arsenal, the Geno Comet received additional melee weaponry to unleash upon its enemies once it got in close; the most notable of which is the Breaker Blade mounted on its right arm. Less notable, and potentially more dangerous as a result, was a hidden, retractable laser-blade on its left wrist.
Although the Geno Comet design was represented by only a single unit, the zoid boasts a success record unmatched by any other Geno before or after it, and the test data gathered from the Geno Comet was ultimately used to develop the Storm CAS for the Berserk Fury. The Comet, or “Red Comet”, as it was affectionately known to the Dragoons, was also given a white “mask” to distinguish it from its cousin the Geno Breaker on the battlefield, as a matter of pride. This distinct cosmetic feature quickly earned the Comet its own name among the enemy Republican forces: Skull Face.
Man, it's been a while since I've made a custom zoid (as opposed to an entirely new zoid from spare parts).
I had originally rigged this custom with a massive Storm Gatling that would actually rotate when you turned the motor on . . . but that didn't mesh well when I settled on making this a high-speed zoid (too bulky).
I'm not much of a Gundam fan, but the Sinanju from Gundam Unicorn was definitely a heavy influence behind this build, with bits of Gundam Exia and Kyrios creeping in as I finished with the blades.
