With the introduction of newer and more advanced mobile suit designs being used by frontline troops of the Earth Federation Forces, some older models were refurbished for civilian use and sold as surplus items on the open market. One such model was the Gryps War-era RMS-106 Hi-Zack, which was stripped of its armaments and weapon capabilities, had its armor slightly modified, and redesignated as the RMS-116H Hobby Hi-Zack. Sold to mobile suit collectors and enthusiasts, the Hobby Hi-Zack was considered a “sports” machine, as it retained the speed and maneuverability of its previous military-use form. One such Hobby Hi-Zack was owned by Neo Zeon pilot Gyunei Guss, who used this mobile suit to infiltrate Side 1’s Londenion Colony to retrieve his leader Char Aznable, who had just concluded secret (but ultimately futile) peace negotiations with the Federation during the Second Neo Zeon War.
