Technical and Historical Notes

 

Following the failure of the improved (but still inadequate) MS-06A Zaku II, Zeonic Company goes back to the drawing board, improving their new Zaku model even more and producing the MS-06C (or "C-type"). Among the improvements made on the C-type are the addition of spikes on the left shoulder and a shield mounted on the right shoulder. Rolled out in January UC 0078, the C-type is approved and becomes Zeon's mainstay mobile suit, serving for at least a full year through the early stages of the One Year War. The standard paint job on the C-type is a combination of different greens and black, though a few ace pilots paint their units in custom colors, such as the distinctive red of "Red Comet" Char Aznable and the black-and-purple of the Black Tri-Stars team of Gaia, Mash and Ortega, all of whom distinguish themselves during the Loum Campaign early in the One Year War. By February UC 0079, the C-type is upgraded into the new MS-06F, or "F-type," and continues to be Zeon's standard frontline unit through the end of the war.
