The MS-06T Zaku Trainer Type is a mobile suit used for training by the Principality of Zeon. It first appeared in Mobile Suit Gundam: Bonds of the Battlefield.
Technology & Combat Characteristics
In order to familiarize new recruits with the new weapon of the Zeon army, the mass-produced MS-06F Zaku II was modified to become a training machine. Its cockpit was converted to a double-seat type, and an extra mono-eye was installed in the chest. Also, in consideration of battles with Federation MS, luminous bumpers were attached to each part of the body, and were used for concealment training.
- Shoulder Shield
- Mounted on the right shoulder, it is a simple defense used to block most physical projectiles.
- M-120A1 120mm Machine Gun
- The same portable firearm used by the Zaku II F-Type. It can switch between semi-automatic and automatic fire. Although useless against Luna Titanium Alloy, it can still destroy weaker armor material with multiple shots. It fires 120mm caliber rounds that are stored in a 100-rounds drum magazine.
