In UC 0094, Neo Zeon stole two MSN-06S Sinanju Stein units, a prototype design developed by Anaheim Electronics as part of the EFF’s secret UC Project. The Sinanju Stein was created as a testbed for the fully body psychoframe intended for the RX-0 Unicorn Gundam. Neo Zeon remodeled one of the units to give it a Zeon aesthetic, particularly to invoke the image of “Red Comet” Char Aznable’s MSN-04 Sazabi from the Second Neo Zeon War. The implementation of the psychoframe around the cockpit, first seen in the Sazabi and RX-93 v Gundam, gave the Sinanju dramatically improved responsiveness and combat ability. The Sinanju was a high speed unit that featured flexible thrusters and mounted a pair of propellant tanks on its backpack for extended operational time. Its armaments included vulcan guns, beam sabers, a beam rifle, a bazooka, beam axes and a grenade launcher. The beam axes could be combined to form a beam naginata, and the bazooka attachment could be fitted onto the beam rifle. The Sinanju served as the personal suit of Neo Zeon leader Full Frontal, a man nicknamed as “The Second Coming of Char.” Full Frontal used the Sinanju throughout the Laplace Incident of UC 0096, and near the end of the conflict the suit became the control unit for the massive mobile armor NZ-999 Neo Zeong. In UC 0097, the second Sinanju Stein unit, MSN-06S-2, was piloted by Zoltan Akkanen during a conflict with the RX-0 Unicorn Gundam 03 Phenex.
