MS-06S Char's Zaku II is a Mobile Suit featured in the Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin manga and its OVA adaptation. It was piloted by Char Aznable during the One Year War.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

With data from Char's MS-05S,[1] the MS-06S is an improved version of the MS-06F and Char's custom had been painted in his personal red colors. Being a commander’s unit, it a horn was attached to its head. Char personally ordered the removal of its limiters, allowing it to use its thrusters to the maximum limit, despite the high risks. The hit-and-run tactics enabled by the resulting high thrust, and the impression its distinctive colors made on the battlefield, led to Char's nick name, “Red Comet”.[2]

History

One Year War

Battle of Loum

In January U.C. 0079, Char's Zaku II used a Bazooka to destroy five Magellan-class Battleships.[3]

Noa

In September, U.C. 0079, at Side 7, Noa, following the launch of the RX-78-02 Gundam from White Base, Dren was ordered by Char to equip Char and Slender's Zaku II units with Type 1 Gear and prepare to launch them along the laser lines. After Amuro's Gundam destroyed two missiles, Oscar Dublin detected Char's and Slender's Zaku II units, with the former approaching three times faster than the latter. Captain Paolo Cassius immediately and gravely recognized it as the Red Comet, Char, stating to a surprised Bright that it was the suit that single-handedly scrapped five of the Federation's battleships at Loum and ordered to turn back and run. Char's Zaku II, still moving at great speed was now close to the ship and Char saw the Gundam through his camera.[4]
