Technical and Historical Notes

The Principality of Zeon’s standard amphibious MSM-04 Acguy saw wide use on Earth during the One Year War in UC 0079. It continued to see use after the war with Zeon remnants committed to fighting the Earth Federation Forces. In August UC 0080, Zeon remnants deployed a specially outfitted Acguy team under the command of Daryl Lorenz to retrieve a spy embedded in the South Seas Alliance. Two custom units, known as the Acguy Firepower Types, featured back units loaded with mines. The two units, designated Type A and B, also replaced one arm each with a weapon cluster unit encased in purge-able waterproof panels. Type A’s configuration included a machine gun, anti-MS bayonet and TOW missile launcher, while Type B’s featured a machine gun, flamethrower, and anti-MS bola. The mission went awry when the Acguy team was spotted by civilians, which led to combat against the Alliance’s SRf-06 Dahles.
