Technical and Historical Notes

 

While the Principality of Zeon forces develops mobile suits like the MS-06E Zaku Reconnaissance Type for reconnaissance duties, the Earth Federation Forces, who are slow to develop and produce mobile suits and already had many conventional recon aircraft and spacecraft, generally don't give their mobile suits these kinds of capabilities. However, as units made up exclusively of mobile suits become common after the One Year War, from a supply and maintenance standpoint it seems wiser to adapt mobile suits for this role than to deploy specialized recon craft. Moreover, while recon spacecraft can be easily destroyed if they happen to be caught in combat, the defensive strength of mobile suits means that they have a higher survival rate. The Federation Forces thus begin planning the development of mobile suits designed for reconnaissance and early warning, based on the RGM-79 GM and its derivatives. Of the plans considered at this point, the notion of using the radome from a conventional recon machine and the backpack of the RMS-106 Hizack is deemed the most cost-effective. The EWAC GM is equipped with the same backpack and sensor radome as the RMS-119 EWAC Zack, as well as a detachable remote-controlled camera unit. However, since problems are found in its performance in the presence of Minovsky particles, the three test units produced are ultimately discarded.
