Technical and Historical Notes

 

The Principality of Zeon mass produces the MS-05 Zaku I in the build up to its war of independence against the Earth Federation. Mobility test data leads to the suggestion of several revisions to the Zaku I, including a new type of shield that mounts on the right shoulder and can protect the suit. A new type of spiked left shoulder armor that can be used offensively is also added. A new belt-fed MS machine gun is also developed, which features increased ammunition due to a feed mechanism mounted on the back. These improvements are intended to be used by the improved MS-06F Zaku II, but the One Year War breaks out just as the Zaku II is entering full production. As a result, some Zaku I units are fitted with the new Zaku II equipment, including one piloted by Char Aznable.
