When the Emperor made the decision to enact the Purification of Zi, it was understood that there would be special requirements to take and hold vast swaths of land quickly.  A Zoid was required that could conquer any terrain at speed, move enough artillery to break any resistance and preserve a command structure for extended lengths of time.  The search began for a feral Zoid platform that could fulfill this weighty role, but no natural Zoid could bring exactly the
elements the Empire would require.

Omnipotent Armor Systems, a powerful corporation that had acquired the rights to various heavy ground units including the Killer Dome, Macurtis and Rhimos designs, devised a plan to merge multiple Zoids into a single, potent entity.  The requirements precluded that all the same units would be needed to maintain cerebral-chassis linking, a new and experimental technology that could give one CPU control over multiple identical bodies.  Low AI capabilities would prevent CPU conflicts, a modular body would ease physical transition and the final design would require great strength to bear the weight of the planned ordinance and armor.  With thousands of Killer Domes now rendered ineffective by the receded oceans and superior sea-going units, they were a natural solution.

It took two years to develop the concept into the first prototype, and the last obstacle was removed with the replacement of the primary Killer Dome’s CPU with an entirely new unit based on the Death Stinger architecture. This was melded with the most advanced feral arthropod Zoid core that could be found.  The prototype EZ-501 Fusillade was born.  In its preliminary trial, General Vaelus Haeger was quoted as describing its performance as, “staggering in every way.”
