Technical and Historical Notes

The RMS-106 Hi-Zack was the first mass production mobile suit created by Anaheim Electronics. Its external appearance resembled that of the famous Zaku II series used by the old Principality of Zeon, and this design could only have been created by Anaheim, which absorbed the Zeonic Company that was once Zeon’s major mobile suit maker. Zeonic’s development know how was incorporated in the machine’s inner construction as well as its outward appearance, giving it the same high operating reliability and ease of production as the Zaku II. Naturally, it could use beam weapons, and it was the first mass production machine to include a linear seat and panoramic monitor as standard equipment. The Earth Federation Forces made a tentative decision to formally adopt this machine, and a test evaluation unit was assigned to the Titans Test Team to investigate whether it should be adopted by the Titans as well. Its resemblance to the Zaku II made the Hi-Zack unpopular with the Titans, but their need to ensure a sufficient number of mobile suits for their growing organization ultimately left them with no alternative. The YRMS-106 Hi-Zack typically carried an energy pack holder on its left arm. Its backpack and leg thruster units lacked the deflecting plates seen in the final production version, and this early version of the Hi-Zack was armored with Luna Titanium alloy.
