During the One Year War, Zeon fielded the MS-06K Zaku Cannon as an anti-air mobile suit answer to the Earth Federation Forces’ RX-77-2 Guncannon. They also created conversion parts for the MS-06J and MS-06C models, which when refitted were collectively redesignated as the “Zaku Half Cannon.” The Zeon created 24 Type JK option sets, which included a new backpack with a cannon (or vulcan gun), a big gun and smoke discharger. Depending on which base model the conversion parts were applied to, the Zaku Half Cannon’s model number would be either MS-06JK or MS-06CK.
