This article has multiple issues and errors. You can help the Invader Zim Wiki by cleaning this dirty place up!!
Frontline BattleMech Edit
The Frontline BattleMech appears to be one of the most powerful of all Irken military units, perhaps only comparable to the Massive. Zim commanded one during Operation Impending Doom I, but got so excited he forgot that he had not left Irk yet, and proceeded to destroy the entire Irken army, thus earning himself his reputation as the worst Invader ever. (The Nightmare Begins) Zim was banished to planet Foodcourtia after the incident, but "quit being banished" after hearing of Operation Impending Doom II. The BattleMech has not appeared since.
The Frontline BattleMech was designed as a first wave assault, rushing into battle and destroying as much as possible. It is heavily armed with lasers built into its hands and a large cannon on its back. A crew of technicians operate it from the inside. Zim piloted through Irk, thinking it was Meekrob, and destroyed the original 32 invaders.
- Main article: Hunter-Destroyer
The hunter-destroyer machine is a robot that locks onto its target and kills relentlessly. Zim owned one that he planned to use on Dib. He most likely got it from the Vortians, who have always given Zim stuff.
MegaDoomer X-3 Combat Stealth Mech Edit
- Main article: MegaDoomer Combat Stealth Mech
A new development in Irken technology, this Vortian-designed mech can turn invisible. This is useless, however, as the pilot can still be seen. The MegaDoomer is heavily armed, complete with a doom cannon and self-destruct mechanism. It requires a massive amount of energy to use. It was going to help Invader Tenn conquer Meekrob. Untill a restless packaging man switched the adresses between a package containing the Megadoomer, and a package containing malfunctioning SIR Unit]]s. The Megadoomer went to ZIM and Tenn got the SIR units, and ZIM ended up making the Megadoomer self destruct.
Maim Bot Edit
This Mech is most likely a common weapon used in ground battle. Back when Zim was training on Devastis, he used a Maim Bot against a snack machine, sending half the planet into a black out, and trapped Tak for a long time. Zim requested a Maim Bot from the Tallest, who concluded that he was insane.
Plasma-armed Battle Tank Edit
Zim makes a request for one of these tanks from the Tallest. In the script for the Trial, it mentions Zim piloting a spider/crab tank. It may have been one of these. We never did see them in action.
Death Wave Cannon Edit
- Main article: Death Wave Cannon
Zim makes a request for a death wave cannon from the Tallest. Nothing is known about these, but they look very powerful. They are huge, spiked, cannons.
- Main article: Spittle Runner
Spittle Runners are the smallest and most fragile ships of the Irken Fleet, but they also move at lightning speed. They are also the most common Irken ship, and there are usually swarms of them, usually enveloping enemy ships in huge assaults.
Notable moments Edit
- In the Operation Impending Doom I flashback, Zim crushed a Spittle Runner with his Frontline BattleMech.
- There is a Spittle Runner wreck on Planet Dirt; Tak modified this wreck into her own ship.
- Main article: Shuvver
This ship is another common Irken vessel. Underneath its outer shell is a pod configuration not unlike that of Zim's Voot Cruiser, and may be an evolved form of it.
Notable moments Edit
- This was the type of ship that was seen at Conventia's Docking Ring, where its crew was beamed to the planet's surface.
- When the organic sweep of Blorch began, the operation was carried out by these ships.
- Main article: Ripper
This ship is not as common as the previous two, but is much bigger and bulkier.
Notable moments Edit
- This was the first ship seen in The Nightmare Begins.
- Main article: Ring Cutter
This vessel is one of the bigger ships in the Irken Armada, and is also less seen than the others. Like the others, it is involved in Organic Sweeps.
- Main article: Viral Tank
The largest of the standard ships in the Irken fleet, the Viral Tank was (as its name would suggest) designed as a scientific research vessel. However, it is still armed for battle.
It is almost as big as The Massive, if not bigger.
Notable Appearances Edit
- Zim flew by a Viral Tank in the opening credits (the corporate logo is on the back of the ship).
- When Zim arrives at The Great Assigning, he smashed his Voot between two Viral Tanks.
- Main article: The Massive
The Massive truly lives up to its name with its gargantuan size. It is The Tallest's personal ship. Designed by Vortian engineers for Tallest Miyuki, The Massive is a Bludgeon-class vehicle that is the heart of the Irken Armada. The fuel pods contain Almighty Tallest Red and Purple's snack supplies. Captain Lard Nar lent a hand in the initial designs of the ship, while the Vortian who became Prisoner 777 finalized it. Zim swore that it would never fly. He was wrong.
- Main article: Voot Cruiser
The Voot Cruiser is Zim's personal craft. At one point, he also refers to it as the "Voot Runner", or simply "the Voot". It can reach high speeds and is armed with two front-mounted cannons that fire a kind of pulse blast. It also has a variety of special features: The back pods can detach and can be used as cutting tools. The Voot can also reconfigure into a disguise machine, although it cannot handle anything past very simple disguises; otherwise, it distorts them horribly. There is another theory that Zim built it himself. A single bee seems to cause great collateral damage to the Voot Cruiser. It has two tractor beams, and a port through the bottom of the rear to lower oneself into one of the beams.
At the end of Hobo 13, Zim was awarded with a brand-new Irken vessel. Its controls are locked, however, and it sends Zim straight into a sun. It is not a warship, rather a highly defensive personal craft.
