Officer's Pod [OBP-Z2]
The new Officer's Battle Pod is a smaller, sleeker version of the original Zentraedi design. Except for the basic body shape, this formidable war machine has been completely redesigned. The body is less round and more linear. The arms are high mounted and more sturdy. The legs are completely different, bending more like destroid legs, rather than the ostrich-like variety on the original Zentraedi Pods. This has reduced its running speed, but given it better diversity of movement.
Mounted atop the deadly machine are two particle beam cannons replacing the one of the old style pod. The familiar weapon arms are still present, but an infrared spotlight has been added, along with retractable two-fingered hands for climbing, grasping and carrying. The hands can extend 8 ft. (2.4 m) out of their forearm housings. The front mounted impact cannons have been moved to the rear and missiles are no longer part of its arsenal.
Rear jet engine thrusters provide limited flight capabilities and greater speed and mobility in space. Concealed manoeuvring jets are found in its legs and body.
