Technical and Historical Notes

 

The greatest difficulty for the remnants of the Principality of Zeon's forces is securing resources, particularly mobile suits, and since they have no production capabilities the mobile suits they currently possess represent their last remaining fighting strength. As the Titans who hunt them continue to deploy new machines on the frontlines, they find themselves at a dramatic disadvantage in terms of both quality and quantity. To address this situation, many Zeon remnants have applied their own independent modifications to enhance the performance of their mobile suits. The "Stutzer" series are among these customized machines. (Stutzer is a German word meaning a fop, a dandy, or a fancy dresser. The winch unit used by the Stutzer series consists of a detachable wire-guided arm which is launched on rails. The mobile suits themselves are equipped with wire cutters on their heads and chests, which prevent their sensors from being damaged by their own wires.) Operating data from the custom machines used by Zeon remnants is covertly relayed to forces like Axis, and incorporated in the development of their new mobile suits. The winch unit used by the Stutzer series, which launches wire-guided arm parts, is a weapon which can be operated even by ordinary pilots who aren't Newtypes. This device can entangle enemy machines with wire, or throw hand grenades at them while the mobile suit itself hides behind an asteroid, making it ideal for guerilla tactics in shoal areas.

 

The MS-06F Zaku II, which is the representative mass production machine of the Zeon forces during the One Year War, has become obsolete in this era. In order to resist the succession of prototypes and new machines introduced by the Federation Forces, the Zeon remnants have heavily remodeled the Zaku II to enhance its performance. For example, during the Delaz Conflict of UC 0083, the Zaku II is reborn as the high-speed fighter mobile suit MS-21C Dra-C used by the Delaz Fleet. The fighting strength of this Zaku II Stutzer has been enhanced by the winch unit independently created by these Zeon remnants, and by the installation of an MS-14A Gelgoog beam rifle in its chest as a fixed weapon, which is powered by an auxiliary generator on its back.
