Technology & Combat Characteristics
With data from Char's MS-05S , the MS-06S is an improved version of the MS-06F and Char's custom had been painted in his personal red colors. Being a commander’s unit, it a horn was attached to its head. Char personally ordered the removal of its limiters, allowing it to use its thrusters to the maximum limit, despite the high risks. The hit-and-run tactics enabled by the resulting high thrust, and the impression its distinctive colors made on the battlefield, led to Char's nick name, “Red Comet” .
