The MS-06GD Zaku II High Mobility Type (Ground Use) was a custom ground combat mobile suit deployed by the Principality of Zeon during the One Year War in UC 0079. Utilized by the elite Brown Southern Cross team, the MS-06GD could hover over the ground thanks to its high mobility leg thrusters. Painted with a brown camouflage scheme, each of the five Zakus carried various armaments that fit each pilot’s role, including close-range combat and long-range support. Commanded by Egba Atler, the team saw combat in multiple fronts, including a battle against the Earth Federation Forces in the North African city of Casablanca. On M’Quve’s orders, the team was deployed to the island of Alegranza on a special mission to initiate a manual launch of nuclear missiles secretly stored under the island’s surface. However, they encountered resistance in the form of Cucuruz Doan, their former commander, who was living on the island and working to sabotage the missiles. At the same time, the Earth Federation Forces assault carrier White Base deployed mobile suits to find missing pilot Amuro Ray and his RX-78-2 Gundam. A battle ensued, with Amuro and Doan wiping out the entire Brown Southern Cross team.
