Technical and Historical Notes

One of the first new mass production model mobile suits developed by the Earth Federation Forces following the One Year War, the RMS-106 Hi-Zack was closely based on the old Zeon MS-06F Zaku II used during the war. However, it did incorporate modern design features tested in the YRMS-106 Hi-Zack. Protected by lighter titanium alloy/ceramic composite armor, the Hi-Zack’s solid weight was greatly reduced, allowing it to carry larger capacity fuel tanks and more powerful thrusters to take advantage of the extra fuel, with the result of greater speed and mobility. The Hi-Zack was also the first mass produced unit to incorporate the new 360-degree panoramic monitor with linear seat style cockpit. The Hi-Zack proved to be a popular model among pilots, as it was easy to operate and maintain. Its only major drawback, however, was the fact that its power generator wasn’t good enough to allow it to effectively use multiple beam weapons. Despite this, the Hi-Zack was one of the most heavily mass produced units found in the field during the Gryps War, and its design served as the basis for many future mobile suit models.
