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

Technology & Combat Characteristics

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


  • 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 Mobile Suit mounts a shield on its right shoulder and is capable of attaching missile racks for the Zaku II's bazooka.
  • Rifle
A rifle which Char's Zaku II used to sink a Federation ship. It is loaded with shrapnel ammunition. Said rifle was later handed to Denim's Zaku II before Char switched it to his bazooka.
  • Bazooka
A giant-sized bazooka mounted by the Zaku II, used to sink four other Federation ships. When not in use, Char store it at the back of his mobile suit's rifle. Its missile racks are stored at the Mobile Suit's shoulder shield.
