Technical and Historical Notes

 

During the One Year War, the Principality of Zeon's most heavily mass-produced mobile suit was the MS-06F Zaku II. However, many variants of the Type F were also introduced during the war, and the MS-06JC Zaku II was almost completely identical to it. The Type JC was built exclusively for ground combat, removing the vernier thrusters required on space-use Type F models. The Type JC also carried a slightly more powerful powerplant (possibly to assist in its mobility under the full-gravity conditions of Earth) and was waterproofed for limited underwater operations. The Type JC also used all of the same standard armaments as its spaceborne counterpart. Type JC Zakus were notably employed in the Southeast Asia campaign and in Australia.
