Special Equipments and Features

The MSN-01 High Mobility Psycommu System Zaku II is a prototype high mobility pyscommu test mobile suit and was built to test out its psycommu system and try to improve it. It was first featured in the original design series Mobile Suit Variations (MSV) and later appears in the movie Gundam Crisis.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

The second part of the MS-16X [Bishop] plan lead to the MSN-01 High Mobility Psycommu System Zaku. With this suit the army of the Principality continued their research into Newtype and Newtype related suits. Since Minovsky particles did not effect brainwaves this proved to be an important asset. Due to the problem of speed found in the MS-06Z Psycommu System Zaku, the legs of the MS-06Z were removed and replaced with high output rocket verniers, thus yielding the MSN-01 High Mobility Psycommu System Zaku.

Armaments

  • Wire-guided 5-barrel Mega Particle Gun
The Psycommu Test High Mobility Type Zaku II's only armaments are a pair of wire-guided 5-barrel mega particle guns. They are controlled by the Psycommu System, they have small verniers to adjust and re-adjust their position to attack, and they are capable of performing "all-range attacks."

Special Equipment & Features

  • Psycommu System
During the One Year War, the researchers of the Flanagan Institute discover that Newtypes emit powerful thoughtwaves - similar to regular brainwaves, but not electrical in nature - which they call psycho-waves. The Flanagan Institute goes on to develop a mind-machine interface called the psycommu (psycho-communicator) system, which receives these thoughtwaves and translates them into computer commands. Using this interface a Newtype pilot can direct remote weapons, and operate huge mobile armors, by thought alone. The Principality forces based at the asteroid Axis succeed in miniaturizing the psycommu system, so that it can be installed in regular-sized mobile suits like the AMX-004 Qubeley. The Federation Forces, meanwhile, concentrate on developing artificially enhanced cyber-Newtypes to operate their psycommu weapons.

History

Since the MSN-01 used many of the same parts as MS-06Z, the designers were unable to gain any satisfactory results under high speed testing, so they relied their high speed testing data on the MAN-03 Braw Bro. Zeon scientists continued to try to make the psycommu system smaller, but ran into many problems, which led to the creation of the MSN-02 Zeong. In Gundam Crisis, one purple-colored unit is seen raiding Solomon after the Earth Federation Forces captured the base.
