- MS-06S Zaku II
the opening month of the OYW, Zeon designers saw the need for a command
type Zaku II. This suit was known as the MS-06S Zaku II Commander Type,
or the S-Type. It was identical to the F-Type, but with refitted powerful
reaction which gave the suit an additional 30% extra thrust over the convention
Zaku II. The suit was also outfitted with a powerful communications 'antennae'
enabling squadron commanders to keep in touch on the field.
The S-Type was
more than just a command unit; it was a potent weapon in the hands of
an expert pilot. The Zeon Aces gave their S-Types custom paint jobs, with
the most famous being the red and maroon colors of the 'Red Comet' Char
Aznable, one of the most famous aces of the OYW.
