  Look at the time Gundam was originally made, and remember that it was intended
as a Monster of the Week anime (Look at the Mobile Armors that keep popping up
near the end...) The Zaku II was designed this way so that it would be tougher
and more meacing looking. More Monster like than the Heroic Superhero Mecha (The
Gundam.) In other words, a Villan Mecha.
