Technical and Historical Notes

 

The HT-01B Magella Attack serves as the Principality of Zeon's main battle tank on Earth. Its armaments include a 175mm main cannon, plus a triple 35mm machine gun. Compared to its Earth Federation Forces counterpart, the Type 61 MBT, the Magella Attack includes a unique feature: its main cannon and cockpit can separate from the base unit and fly on their own. This allows a pilot to continue fighting if the base tank unit is destroyed. Although the Magella Attack proves less useful against mobile suits, even its main cannon can be deadly at extreme close range. Magella Attacks are deployed throughout Earth, with the PVN.42/4 version seeing action in Europe. Zeon field engineers also adapt the cannon into a handheld weapon usable by mobile suits, and the Magella Attack's tank base is combined with a mobile suit torso to create the MS-06V Zaku Tank.
