The MSN-04II Nightingale was a further development of the MSN-04 Sazabi used by Neo Zeon leader Char Aznable during the Second Neo Zeon War in UC 0093. Much larger in size than the Sazabi, the Nightingale’s armaments included a large mega beam rifle, a shield that mounted three missiles, a beam tomahawk and 10 remote controlled funnels. Due to Char exclusively using the Sazabi during the war, there was no official record of the Nightingale’s existence.
