Technology & Combat Characteristics
An improved version of the MS-06, piloted by the "Black Tri-Stars" team of Gaia, Ortega, and Mash during the Battle of Loum. Thanks to its readjustments and the large thrusters installed in its backpack and legs, it boasts high thrust and mobility. Its body is painted in the trio's personal black and purple colors. These three machines team up to perform coordinated attacks against the Earth Federation fleet, producing excellent combat results.
- Anti-Space Ship Rifle ASR-78
- Giant Heat Hawk
- A close combat weapon used by Ortega's unit, it is used in coordinated attacks with the other machines of the Black Tri-Star. The Giant Heat Hawk's total length is four times that of the normal heat hawk, with its blade being over 10m in size. When its heated blade is combined with the kinetic energy used to swing the weapon, a terrifying destructive power can be produced. Hidden thrusters in the weapon's head can be deployed to enhance the attack power. However, due to its non-standard size, the Giant Heat Hawk is difficult to wield.

- Machine Gun
- Heat Hawk
The personalized mobile suits of the Black Tri-Stars used during the Loum campaign in the opening weeks of the One Year War. The Tri-Stars would not only use these suits to lead the Zeon MS forces into battle in the Loum but also cripple the "Ananke" a Magellan-class that served as the flagship for the Federation forces at the Loum, and also capture Johann Ibrahim Revil as he attempted to flee his downed ship.
