Technical and Historical Notes

 

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