Technical and Historical Notes

 

Although the MS-06F Zaku II is the most heavily mass produced Zaku model of the One Year War, a handful of Zakus are modified for improved performance and assigned to squadron commanders and proven ace pilots. Known as the MS-06S Zaku II (Commander Type), the S-type Zaku, while visually identical to the F-type except for the minor addition of a squad leader "antennae" on the head, is a big step up for its pilots. Featuring a more powerful reactor and greater thrust and acceleration, the S-type is a potent weapon in the hands of an expert pilot. Many aces and unit commanders give their S-types custom paint jobs, the most notable being the red-and-maroon colors of "Red Comet" Char Aznable, the greatest mobile suit ace of the One Year War.
