Technical and Historical Notes

 

As the One Year War rages on, the Principality of Zeon military continues to develop variants of its mass-produced MS-06F Zaku II mobile suit for specific mission roles. One such variant is the MS-06E Zaku Reconnaissance Type, which is modified from existing C-type and F-type units. These units are designed for scouting and reconnaissance missions, and mount specialized cameras and sensor systems on its head, shoulders and front pelvic skirt armor. It is also built for speed and long range, incorporating the thrusters from a higher-performance S-type, an additional pair of thrusters mounted in the chest for fast retreats, and a larger propellant storage capacity. The Zaku Recon Type is also literally unarmed, carrying only a handheld "camera gun" for additional intelligence-gathering observation and recording. About 100 such Zaku Recon Type units are built, with some surviving the war and being captured and employed by the Earth Federation Forces and their elite Titans task force.
