This article is in need of Technology & Combat Characteristics.

The MS-06R-1 Zaku II High Mobility Test Type is one of many experimental variants of the standard MS-06 Zaku II created by the Principality of Zeon during the One Year War.

Technology & Combat Characteristics


  • Shoulder Shield
The shield is a simple defense used to block most incoming ballistic and explosive projectiles. Also used to great effect in close quarters battle with enemy mobile suits. The Zaku II mounts a shield on its right shoulder.
  • 120mm Machine Gun
The 120mm machine gun is a standard weapon for Zaku type mobile suits. It is a shell firing gun that does not require energy to be used, however its effectiveness against heavy armor is very limited. It holds 100 rounds per drum with spare drums that can be stored on waist armor racks.
  • H&L-SB25K/280mmA-P Zaku Bazooka
The 280mm Zaku Bazooka was another standard weapon that could be equipped to a Zaku type mobile suit. The bazooka fired explosive rounds that were quite effective against the armor of Earth Federation mobile suits and battleships.
  • H&L-GB05R/360mm Giant Bazooka
The giant bazooka is the same model used by the Dom series of mobile suits. The bazooka is magazine fed and holds 10 rounds per magazine. A single round can blow the torso off of an enemy mobile suit.
  • Heat Hawk
An axe-shaped close combat weapon, it uses a super-heated blade to cut through the armor of enemy MS or vehicles. The thermal energy is generated by the power output of the Zaku II's thermonuclear reactor and relayed through the MS' hands.


The Zaku II High Mobility Test Type was the next major development of the MS-06RP Zaku II High Mobility Test Type. The original design was only slightly modified and eventually 22 units of the MS-06R-1 were produced. These units were given to some of Zeon's notable ace pilots for flight tests. One such unit was given to Shin Matsunaga, who earned the nickname the "White Wolf of Solomon" because of his exploits in his white Zaku II High Mobility Test Type around the asteroid fortress of Solomon.

Overall, the Zaku II High Mobility Test Type proved to be an incredibly popular design. With its increased armor and fuel capacity, the design was a vast improvement over the standard Zaku II. Nevertheless, a more advanced version was produced, known as the MS-06R-1A High Mobility Type Zaku II. Of the twenty-two MS-06R-1 units produced, ten were converted into MS-06R-1A types.
