Technical and Historical Notes

 

As Zeon works to upgrade or replace its aging MS-06F Zaku II line during the One Year War, their intended replacement for the space-use MS-06F is a new high-performance model with the model number MS-11. As development of the MS-11 continues, a MS-06R-1A Zaku II R-1A is heavily modified to serve as a testbed unit for the MS-11's development team. Incorporating the MS-11's powerful reactor and cooling system, this testbed MS-06R-2P can use beam weapons. The R-2P unit is so heavily and continually modified over its service life that it earns the nickname "MS-06R-3 Zaku III." However, the appearance of the Earth Federation Forces' RX-78-2 Gundam, operating with superb performance and carrying its own handheld beam weapons, forces the Zeon engineers to re-think their own design concept. The MS-11 project is scrapped and restarted as the design project for the more ambitious MS-14 Gelgoog. The MS-11 model number, now no longer being used, is later assigned to the Pezun Project's Act Zaku.
