Technical and Historical Notes

 

As the One Year War rages on, the Zeon military finds itself desperately in short supply of replacement parts for mobile suits and other combat weapons. Zeon is forced to salvage what parts and supplies they can from existing damaged units, often cobbling together makeshift designs to get more operational units to the field. One product of this situation is the MS-06V Zaku Tank, which fuses a MS-06F Zaku II mobile suit's upper body, head and arms with the Magella Base drive base of a HT-01B Magella Attack tank. Though the most common Zaku Tank is armed with weapons as a combat unit, many variations also exist depending on available parts and the tasks required of it. One such Zaku Tank variation is a construction unit used by Zeon forces stationed in Southeast Asia, which uses the upper body of a MS-05B Zaku I and mounts a bulldozer blade and a pair of long manipulator arms for heavy lifting.
