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

Technology & Combat Characteristics

As the One Year War dragged on, the Zeon engineers strived to create a high-performance unit to replace their aging space fleet of MS-06F Zaku IIs, which were quickly being outclassed by the Earth Federation's new RGM-79 GM series of mobile suits. The first of the new improved units created was the MS-06RP Zaku II High Mobility Test Type. The Zaku II High Mobility Test Type added several thrusters around the edges of the leg armor, giving it greater speed, acceleration, and mobility, and larger propellant tanks which increased the unit's fuel storage capacity.

Armaments

  • 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.
  • 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. Can be stored on the rear waist armor when not in use.

History

Only two of these prototype Zaku II High Mobility Test Type units would be constructed, and both of them would be piloted by Zeon ace pilot, and former Zeonic Company mobile suit developer, Elliot Rem. After Major Rem gave the new unit his personal approval, the MS-06RP underwent a few very minor modifications and was slated for mass-production as the MS-06R-1 Zaku II High Mobility Test Type.
