Technical and Historical Notes

 

During the One Year War, the Principality of Zeon's most heavily mass-produced mobile suit is the MS-06F Zaku II. However, many variants of the F-type Zaku are also introduced during the war, and the MS-06JC Zaku II is almost completely identical to it. The JC-type is built exclusively for ground combat, removing the vernier thrusters required on space-use F-type models. The JC-type also carries a slightly more powerful powerplant (possibly to assist in its mobility under the full-gravity conditions of Earth) and is waterproofed for limited underwater operations. Despite these minor differences, the JC-type Zaku is 99% visually identical to the standard F-type. The JC-type also uses all of the same standard armaments as its spaceborne counterpart. JC-type Zakus are notably employed in the Southeast Asia campaign and in Australia, as well as by the Midnight Fenrir team during the assault on Jaburo.
