MSZ-006D Zeta Plus D is a prototype transformable aerial combat mobile weapon, it is featured in the photo-novel Gundam Sentinel.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

an experimental mobile suit derived from the baseline design of the MSZ-006A1's Waverider mode. This unit featured new equipment that included extra fins, upgraded engines and stronger weaponry, and was designed to be a more of a dedicated attack aircraft. After the Gryps Conflict ended the Earth Federation wanted the design of the Ζ Gundam to be reworked, so that it was more streamlined, less complex, and, most importantly, cheaper to manufacture, but so that it would still retain all of the major strengths of the original unit. The Ζ Plus line of mobile suits was the answer to the Federation's requests.

As the MSZ-006A1 Zeta Plus A1 was designed for long-range attack missions, its waverider form was intended mainly for long-distance travel rather than aerial combat, as a result, its versatility and reliability as a combat aircraft was inferior to that of conventional fighter aircraft. This D type was designed to follow the same concept, however, with an aim to improve its thrust-to-weight ratio and handling characteristics. The Z Plus D not only incorporates a pair of new nuclear thermal turbofan engines, It was fitted with horizontal and vertical fins on its nose and tail stabilizer, giving better reliability and maneuverability. The flight sub unit (or "shield") incorporates an engine equipped with thrust vectoring for takeoff and landing purposes. The D type carries improved thigh-mounted beam cannons, and its wing binders have hardpoints for missiles and drop tanks.

Armaments

History

With the exception of the E type, this is the most expensive machine of the Zeta Plus series, and it boasts high performance as both a mobile suit and a fighter aircraft. This D type is later adopted by the regular Federation Forces and deployed in the first Neo Zeon conflict, and it is said that a modified version is later developed for use in space.
