The MSN-01 Psycommu Test High Mobility Type Zaku (aka MSN-01 Psycommu System Zaku) is an experimental mobile suit from the design series Mobile Suit Variations.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

This is a modified version of the second MS-06Z Psycommu System Zaku unit. When the model number of the Zeong was changed from "MS-16X" to "MSN-02", this machine's model number was also changed to "MSN-01". Because the MS-06Z had limitations in collecting data on the Psycommu system during high-speed maneuvers, the legs were omitted on this machine and replaced with two sets of high mobility thruster units, each equipped with four large, high output, thermonuclear rocket engines. This gave it mobility comparable to that of a mobile armor.

However, as the mobile suit's propellant capacity could not keep up with the added rocket engines, it could only be used for a short time. Despite this, the machine was able to collect valuable data that contributed to the Zeong's development. Furthermore, its test results also revealed the limitations of a Zaku-II based design, leading to the development of the Zeong as a completely new machine. Although a test machine, there were records of it participating in the defense of A Baoa Qu along with the MS-06Z.


  • Wired 5-barrel Mega Particle Cannon
Equipped with a powerful mega particle cannon installed in each finger, the forearms of the MSN-01 Psycommu Test High Mobility Type Zaku can be detached from its elbows and function as wired remote weaponry, enabling all-range attacks. The Wired 5-barrel Mega Particle Cannon can easy sink a battleship in a single attack.

Special Equipment & Features

  • Psycommu System
A man-machine interface exclusively for Newtypes. This system allows a Newtype pilot to control the mobile suit and its remote weaponry by thoughts alone.


There were records of the Psycommu Test High Mobility Type Zaku and MS-06Z Psycommu System Zaku Unit 3 being transferred to A Baoa Qu, and deployed for combat there.[1]

In Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt: December Sky, one unit piloted by Billy Hickam was deployed at A Baoa Qu to fend off the EFSF's onslaught.[2]

In the Gundam Crisis game, one purple-colored unit was seen raiding Solomon after the Earth Federation Forces captured the base.[3]

Notes & Trivia

  • On November 2017, the Japanese website announced that the Psycommu Test High Mobility Type Zaku won an online census, where fans voted for a next MSV unit that will be made as a new Gunpla. [4] There has been no follow-up information regarding a new Psycommu Test High Mobility Type Zaku kit from Bandai ever since.
