Technical and Historical Notes

 

By UC 0078, the Principality of Zeon is already producing the MS-06C Zaku II, but it also launches an upgrade program for the aging MS-05B Zaku I that results in a new model, the MS-05Q. Many pilots prefer their existing units, which are upgraded with new reactors and other features. The original plan is to convert 240 units to the MS-05Q revision, but only 162 are converted due to priority being assigned to the construction of new machines. Near the end of the One Year War, a second run of fewer than 30 units are upgraded to MS-05Q. One MS-05Q unit is used by pilot Norris Packard and features custom knuckle spikes for close combat. In February UC 0079, Packard conducts the first of a series of missions to attack Earth Federation Forces fuel transport fleets.
