As the One Year War dragged on, the Zeon forces found themselves in desperate need of replacement mobile suits and other weaponry's. Forced to salvage whatever they could, field workshops would often disassemble inoperable machines for use as replacement parts and cobble together new units from whatever was available in order to get more combat units to the field. One of the most common variations was the Zaku Tank, created from mounting a Zaku torso, head and arms onto the hull of a Magella Attack Tank. These units were prized by field commanders, starved for replacement mobile suits and used for both combat and support duties. After the end of the war, many captured Zaku Tanks were employed at Earth Federation Forces bases across Earth, particularly at the Jaburo military headquarters in South America.
