The MS-06V Zaku Tank Cannon Type was a variation of the MS-06V Zaku Tank developed by Principality of Zeon field engineers during the One Year War. Compared to the standard MS-06V, the Cannon Type utilized more of the MS-06F Zaku II torso. The Cannon Type’s biggest difference in armament was its inclusion of a 180mm cannon. The Cannon Type’s arms could alternately equip either standard Zaku arms or manipulators. In the case of the former, it could carry two MMP-80 machine guns.
