Technical and Historical Notes

 

The second part of the MS-16X [Bishop] plan leads to the MSN-01 Psycommu System Zaku. With this suit the Zeon continue their research into Newtypes and Newtype-related suits. Since Minovsky particles don't affect brainwaves, this proves to be an important asset. Due to the problem of speed found in the MS-06Z Bishop, its legs are removed and replaced high output rocket verniers, thus yielding the MSN-01. Since the MSN-01 uses many of the same parts as MS-06Z, the designers are unable to gain any satisfactory results under high speed testing, so they rely their high speed testing data on the MAN-03 Braw Bro. Zeon scientists continue to try to make the psycommu system smaller, but run into many problems, which leads to the creation of the larger MSN-02 Zeong.
