The RMS-106 Hizack (aka Hi-Zack) is a mass-production general-purpose mobile suit. Based on the mobile suit line of the MS-06 Zaku II, the Hizack was a mass production suit used by the Titans and EFSF in Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

The mass-produced Mobile Suit of the Titans forces developed at Granada, as well as the Earth Federation Forces, the Hizack was a vast improvement over the MS-06 Zaku II, used by the Principality of Zeon. The data from the MS-06F2 Zaku II F2 Type was referenced during development.[1] Although the Titan Forces were assigned to wipe out the remaining bits of the Zeon forces, the Titan Hizack uses the same dark green color scheme (The Earth Forces had used a dark blue color for theirs). The Hizack is most often equipped with an out of date Zaku-series 120mm machine gun, as well as Beam Saber or Heat Hawk. Hizacks are also sometimes equipped with a Beam Rifle, but its fairly low tolerance for beam weapons due to low energy output means it can only carry one at a time. Hizacks may also be equipped with missile pods instead of the hand thrown grenades of previous Zakus.

The Hizack also has been outfitted with titanium armor, backed by a ceramic composite, and it has a higher output generator than that of a Zaku. Hizacks are faster and more agile than its predecessors, and is easily controlled by its pilot.

Armaments

  • Heat Hawk
An axe-shaped close combat weapon, it uses a super-heated blade to cut through the armor of enemy MS or vehicles. The Hizack was given a heat hawk similar to the one used by the famous MS-06 Zaku II. Although the Hizack would normally use a beam saber, it would have to use this if it was using a beam rifle due to it's low-output generator.
  • Beam Saber
The standard armament of most MS, Beam Sabers emits high-energy Minovsky particles to form a blade-shaped I-field (via manipulation of electromagnetic fields), and then fills this I-field shell with superheated Minovsky particle plasma to produce an effective cutting blade. The termination of the I-field along a solid contact surface allows the plasma to eat away at the offending material until the I-field reestablishes itself, allowing the weapon to "cut" through almost any target. The Hizack was given a beam saber as a close combat weapon. However, it couldn't use it in conjunction with its beam rifle due to having a low-output generator.
  • 3-tube Missile Pod
The Hizack has a pair of 3-tube missile pods mounted on each side of its hips. These would be used for long to mid-range bombardment. These missiles are quite good weapon against armored enemies. However, they are also slow and therefore unsuitable for combat against nimble targets that can easily avoid them.
  • BR-87A Beam Rifle
A standard hand carried ranged beam weapon is the beam rifle, which is powered by a rechargeable energy cap. Capable of firing concentrated mega particles, attacks from a beam rifle can damage any ordinary armor that has not been specially treated to resist it. This beam rifle is the same as the one used by the Marasai, however, the Hizack's low generator output hinders the effectiveness of beam weapons.
  • Shield
A model of shield popular with Hizack pilots, it is mounted on the left arm. Shields are simple in their design, being essentially thick slabs of metal that the equipped mobile suit can use to absorb the impact from attacks that, for whatever reason, cannot be dodged. However shields can only withstand so much pressure before becoming damaged themselves. The Hizack's shield has an additional forearm latch to hold E-pacs.
  • 120mm Zaku Machine Gun Kai
A recreation of the original Zaku II's machine gun, in order to provide a cheaper and less energy-consuming weapon. It is a shell firing gun that does not require energy to be used, however its effectiveness against heavy armor is very little. The drum magazine can hold 100 rounds.
  • Shoulder Shield
A recreation of the original Zaku II's shoulder shield, however, while it can defend against limited beam attacks (due to the resistance treatment), it can't survive a sustained barrage for long.
  • Cracker Grenades
Identical to those used by infantry, the cracker grenade is an explosive weapons designed to be thrown or launched by the MS and detonate after a set amount of time. The "cracker" then breaks into several smaller munitions over a wide area.

Special Equipment & Features

  • Ballute System
The ballute pack is a backpack styled piece of equipment, with additional packs with maneuvering thrusters mounted on the legs and chest, that releases an inflatable shield designed to protect the mobile suit from friction heat during atmospheric reentry. The equipment was designed and mass produced between the years UC 0083 and 0087 and is designed to be used by a multitude of different mobile suit models.

History

Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam

The RMS-106 Hizack is the first mass production mobile suit brought into the world by Anaheim Electronics. Its external appearance resembles that of the famous Zaku II series used by the old Principality of Zeon forces, and this design could only have been created by Anaheim, which has absorbed the Zeonic Company which was once Zeon's major mobile suit maker. Zeonic's development know-how is incorporated in the machine's inner construction as well as its outward appearance, giving it the same high operating reliability and ease of production as the Zaku II. Naturally, it can use beam weapons, and it's the first mass production machine to include a linear seat and panoramic monitor as standard equipment.

Hizack mobile suits served as one of the three main mobile suit models that filled the Earth Federation forces' ranks from 0084-0087, alongside the RMS-179/RGM-79R GM II and RMS-117 Galbaldy β, and was the primary mainstay mobile suit of the Titans organization until the RMS-108 Marasai was introduced. As the main unit of the Titans the Hizack was used in many missions to eradicate anti-Federation dissidents. By 0087 the Hizack was primarily pitted against the AEUG and Karaba organizations, however time and again it was proven that the rebel pilots and machines were simply superior to the Hizack. In the same year, the Hizack began being phased out as the Titans were supplied with newer machine developed by the Earth Federation, Anaheim Electronics, and their own research teams.

Mobile Suit Gundam ZZ

The Hizack was originally built and operated by the Earth Federation Forces, but the invasion of Earth by Neo Zeon during the First Neo Zeon War resulted in several of these units being captured by the enemy. Though it is likely that some Earth Federation combat units possessed Hizacks they were no longer one of the Federation's primary mobile suits, having been replaced by the RMS-179/RGM-79R GM II, RGM-86R GM III, and MSA-003 Nemo. It is likely that use of the Hizack ceased because of its association with the Titans.

Mobile Suit Gundam: Char's Counterattack

By U.C. 0093, the Hizack had been almost completely phased out and, as such, was either being used for scrap or for private purposes. One of these variants was the RMS-116H Hobby Hizack, a civilian use variant.

Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn

In U.C. 0096, during the events of Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn, the outdated Hizack is still used by both "[Sleeves]" and the Republic of Zeon.
