The MSZ-006A2 Zeta plus A2 was a variant of the MSZ-006A1 Zeta plus A1 with a high mega cannon installed in its head. The A2 type was created to investigate the performance of this new weapon and used primarily for data collection. Six A1 types were converted to create these test machines, three of which were experimentally deployed in combat, and the remaining units were quickly dismantled for replacement parts.
