The MSN-06S Sinanju Stein (aka Sinanju Stein) is a mobile suit featured in the PlayStation 3 video game Mobile Suit Gundam UC and UC-MSV. It is the successor unit to Char Aznable's MSN-04 Sazabi.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

Built from the data obtained from both the MSN-04 Sazabi and RX-93 ν Gundam, the Sinanju Stein is a prototype mobile suit developed as part of the Earth Federation Forces reorganization plan known as the "UC Project." It is developed by Anaheim Electronics to test the sensitivity and sturdiness of the Psycoframe that would be implemented into the RX-0 Unicorn Gundam. Its movable frame is partly made from psycoframe material and is equipped with a Psycommu system. It is equipped with the "Intention Automatic System", which functions by using the Psycoframe's sensitivity to the pilot's thought-waves to directly affect behavior of the mobile suit.[1] It could not be handled by regular pilots as it was designed to push the limits of psycoframe performance. The suit boasts high mobility and features six boosters on its back, allowing it to achieve precise movements at high speeds. Because of the circumstances behind its development, the Unicorn Gundam is the equivalent of a "sister" unit to the Sinanju Stein.


  • 60mm Vulcan Gun
A basic armament found on many Federation mobile suits. While not very powerful and typically unable to penetrate mobile suit armor, the vulcan gun is useful in intercepting missiles/rockets, destroying mobile suit sensors, and engaging lightly-armored targets such as tanks and small aircraft.
  • Beam Saber
Stored within each forearm, the beam sabers can be handheld or be deployed directly as the storage cover is lifted.
  • High Beam Rifle
Similar to the FA-93HWS v Gundam Heavy Weapons System Type's, this weapon is presumed to have similar range and power.
  • Shield
The Sinanju Stein's defensive armament. It shares an appearance with that of the RX-93 ν Gundam's shield.
  • Beam Cannon
The shield of the Sinanju Stein is equipped with a Beam Cannon.
  • Missiles
Sinanju Stein's shield also houses four missiles.

Special Equipment & Features

  • External Propellant Tank
Mounted on the back, the pair of tanks increase the amount of fuel the suit can carry, thus increasing its operational flight time. When the fuel is depleted, the tanks can be ejected to decrease mass.
  • Psycoframe Cockpit
The Psycoframe is a technology that builds the brainwave-to-machine code translator known as Psycommu into the atom-level of the metal frame of a Mobile Suit. This allows a Newtype pilot to mentally connect with their mobile suits operating system, similar to the bio-sensor, and input commands direct from the mind via brainwaves.
  • Intention Automatic System


Stealing the Sinanju Stein

The Sinanju Stein is based upon the MSN-04 Sazabi and RX-93 ν Gundam, it was created by Anaheim Electronics to aid in development of the new NT-D System. The resulting data was used by Anaheim to complete the RX-0 Unicorn Gundam. In UC 0094, the Sinanju Stein was stolen (disguised as a transfer) by the remnants of Neo Zeon, "The Sleeves", who modified it into the MSN-06S Sinanju and it was used as the personal machine of their leader, Full Frontal.

During the events in Mobile Suit Gundam UC MSV Kusabi manga, the stolen Sinanju Stein was test-piloted by The Sleeve's Worklach Banham for Zeon weapon's compatibility prior to its conversion into MSN-06S Sinanju.

Notes and Trivia

  • The Sinanju's name is derived from a fictional style of martial arts that came from a paperback book series known as "The Destroyer".
  • Stein means "stone" in German and Norwegian. The Sinanju Stein is referred to as "The stone from which Full Frontal's Sinanju was hewn."
  • In the CG-animated segment of Sony PlayStation 3's Mobile Suit Gundam UC video game, it is implied that Alberto Vist colluded with the Neo Zeon Remnants "The Sleeves" in the hijacking of Sinanju Stein from Earth Federation Forces.
