The MS-06R-1 Zaku II High Mobility Test Type is a mobile suit first introduced in Mobile Suit Variations.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

The first mass-produced Zaku II R type. Its structure is modified from the RP type's to improve production efficiency, and the number of externally mounted transmission cables and circuits has increased. In addition, small thrusters have been added, and the waist-mounted integral fuel tanks relocated to the torso and legs. The Zaku II High Mobility Test Type is a complete redesign of the MS-06F Zaku II so as to ensure its propellant carrying capacity.


  • Shoulder Shield
A large composite armored shield on the Zaku II's right shoulder. When the machine is in the optimal attack posture, where the frontal projected area is the smallest, the corners of the shield are in front, maximizing the defensive area and forming sloped armor to reduce damage from ricochets.
  • M-120A1 120mm Machine Gun
A standard firearm for Zaku type MS. It has a large drum magazine located at the top, and features a scope and foregrip to enable highly accurate shooting. It can switch modes between single-fire and automatic fire. Although useless against Luna Titanium Alloy, it can still destroy weaker armor material with multiple shots.
  • H&L-SB25K/280mmA-P Zaku Bazooka
A portable, physical projectile-type firearm. It is primarily for anti-ship combat and displays its power in hit and run attacks. It can also be used against enemy mobile suits, but it is harder to hit a constantly moving target.
  • H&L-GB05R/360mm Giant Bazooka
The same MS-use bazooka as used by the Dom, it fires rocket-propelled 360mm physical rounds. It is fed by a 10 rounds magazine, and a single round can blow the torso off of an enemy mobile suit.
  • Heat Hawk
An axe-shaped close combat weapon, it uses a super-heated blade to cut through the armor of enemy MS or vehicles. The thermal energy is generated by the power output of the Zaku II's thermonuclear reactor and relayed through the MS' hands.
  • MIP-B6 Cracker Grenade
A multi-warhead grenade. After being thrown at the target, the six protrusions on the cracker's body explode in different directions, dealing damage over a wide area. A flash-type variant also exist, which can temporarily paralyze the sensors of enemy MS.


The Zaku II High Mobility Test Type was a slight modification of the MS-06RP Zaku II High Mobility Test Type and 22 units were produced. They were given to some of Zeon's ace pilots for flight tests. One such unit was given to Shin Matsunaga, who earned the nickname the "White Wolf of Solomon" because of his exploits in his white Zaku II High Mobility Test Type around the asteroid fortress of Solomon. Overall, the Zaku II High Mobility Test Type proved to be an incredibly popular design. With its increased armor and fuel capacity, the design was a vast improvement over the standard Zaku II. An improved version, the MS-06R-1A High Mobility Type Zaku II, was later produced and ten of the MS-06R-1 units were converted to this newer type.
