The MSZ-006C1[Bst] Zeta plus C1 Best (aka Hummingbird) was a high-speed attack version of the MSZ-006C1 designed to escort the MSA-0011[Bst] S Gundam Bst. The original plan was to replace the arms and legs of the Zeta plus with the same booster units used by the MSA-0011[Ext] Ex-S Gundam, restricting this machine to waverider form. In order to increase its support capabilities, the plan was revised so that this version could transform into mobile suit form as well. The redesigned limbs of this C1[Bst] type were stored inside the booster units when it changed into waverider form. Because this reduced its propellant storage space, external propellant tanks could be installed between its legs. The acceleration performance of this machine theoretically exceeded that of the booster-equipped MSA-0011 S Gundam, and it was anticipated that it could be used as an interceptor as well as for long-range penetration missions.
