Technical and Historical Notes

 

An upgrade of the Principality of Zeon's MS-06E Recon Type Zaku, the MS-06E-3 features the same external camera/sensor systems as the standard E-type, but also mounts six fin-like, directional laser and sonic sensor systems for detection across a greater spectrum. When in use, the fins make a flapping motion as they turn to acquire and track targets, thus earning the E-3-type the nickname "Zaku Flipper" among Zeon pilots.
