Technical and Historical Notes

 

Late during the One Year War, the Principality of Zeon military starts its "United Maintenance Plan" to upgrade and improve existing mobile suit designs and to make its own manufacturing capabilities more streamlined by incorporating similar parts and systems in several different mobile suit lines. One of the mobile suit types to be redesigned under this plan is the venerable MS-06F Zaku II, which has been serving Zeon since the early days of the war. The new MS-06FZ Zaku II FZ, with an improved type of cockpit and greatly increased thruster acceleration, is a tremendous improvement over the standard F-type in terms of speed and maneuverability. However, one drawback to the increased performance is that the FZ's operational time was reduced by half, as it uses fuel twice as fast due to the added thrust. And due to its late introduction into the war, only a small number of FZs are produced, with some operating in the skirmishes against the Federation Forces stationed in the Side 6 area in December UC 0079. Nearly 20 years after the One Year War, Zeon remnants use the FZ as part of an attack on Australia's Torrington Base in UC 0096.
