The MS-06CK Zaku Half Cannon was an artillery unit fielded by the Principality of Zeon during the One Year War. Zeon’s captured California Base produced several Zaku II variants for Earth combat, including the MS-06K Zaku Cannon. In addition to the standard MS-06K, the California Base produced Type K backpacks that could applied to existing units. The MS-06C and MS-06J could both be converted with these backpacks and were collectively redesignated as the “Zaku Half Cannon.” The Type CK’s armaments included a 180mm cannon and a pair of big guns, although it could optionally mount missile pods on its legs or replace the 180mm cannon with a 120mm vulcan gun.
