Technical and Historical Notes

 

During the One Year War, the Principality of Zeon military introduces the mobile suit, a new combat weapon for a new type of war. The most heavily mass-produced and most well-known mobile suit model built during the war is the MS-06F Zaku II, and its combat role versatility and easy-to-master controls make it popular among mobile suit pilots. Midway through the war, the Zeonic Company introduces an upgraded version of the Zaku II, the MS-06F2, or F2-type. The F2-type is lighter, making it more fuel efficient and giving it a longer flight time, and it sports an upgraded, more powerful generator. The armor protecting the cockpit is also improved, as well as its overall performance, putting it on a more equal footing with the Earth Federation Forces' RGM-79 GM. The F2-type can also be fitted with a pair of solid rocket boosters on its backpack, giving it a very brief but tremendous increase in overall thruster output; this option allows ground-based Zakus to temporarily become airborne to attack low-altitude aircraft. Though the introduction of the F2-type comes later in the war, it's used by forces such as the Midnight Fenrir team. After the war, many F2-types remain in service - some being retained by remnant Zeon forces waiting for their revolution to restart, and some being captured by the Federation Forces and put to work as aggressor units in squadrons conducting pilot training and mobile suit field testing.
