Technical and Historical Notes

 

Unquestionably the most unique mobile suit ever produced by the Principality of Zeon, the MS-06MS Barbus is designed not for human pilots, but monkeys. Based off of the MS-06F Zaku II, the Barbus imitates its simian operators by mounting two extra arms in place of legs. However, further modifications include magnetic coating and an upgrade to the reactor to allow it to wield the MS-14A Gelgoog's beam rifle. Despite its remarkable power, the Barbus is never used until nearly 60 years later, when the lost Satellite E is investigated by the Earth Federation Forces, and the remaining units (its monkey pilots having developed into Newtypes in the interim) are destroyed by the joint efforts of Federation ace Harrison Madin and space pirate Tobia Arronax.
