Technical and Historical Notes

 

Following the end of the One Year War at the Battle of A Baoa Qu on December 31, UC 0079, many remnants of the Zeon military go into exile, surviving and rebuilding their forces as best they can until they can renew the war against the Earth Federation. One remnant is the Delaz Fleet, and it builds an exclusive new mobile suit with salvaged parts and mobile suit components. The MS-21C Dra-C it a space-only, fast interception mobile suit, armed only with a 40mm vulcan gun on its right arm and a beam saber-equipped shield on the left arm. Its torso and arms are salvaged from a MS-06F2 Zaku II Type F2, but it mounts a pair of large propellant tanks in place of legs. Since it resembles a mobile armor as much as it does a mobile suit, the Dra-C is not equipped with an AMBAC (Active Mass Balance AutoControl) system, instead relying on main thrusters and a pair of large, vernier-laden shoulder pods for attitude control. Following Operation Stardust, the Dra-C is also used by the Axis Zeon during the Gryps Conflict in UC 0087, and later by the "Sleeves" Neo Zeon faction during the Laplace Incident in UC 0096. The Sleeves units mount a mega Gatling gun as their main armament, but these aging mobile suits perform poorly against the Federation Forces' newer models in a battle at the Palau asteroid.
