The mass-produced [[Mobile Suit]] of the Titans forces developed at [[Granada]], as well as the Earth Federation Forces, the Hizack was a vast improvement over the [[MS-06 Zaku II]], used by the [[Principality of Zeon]]. The data from the [[MS-06F2 Zaku II F2 Type]] was referenced during development.<ref>Data Collection " Mobile Suit Gundam One Year War - Side Story", Media Works</ref> Although the Titan Forces were assigned to wipe out the remaining bits of the Zeon forces, the Titan Hizack uses the same dark green color scheme (The Earth Forces had used a dark blue color for theirs). The Hizack is most often equipped with an 120mm machine gun kai, [[Beam Saber]] or Heat Hawk. Hizacks are also sometimes equipped with a [[Beam Rifle]], but its fairly low tolerance for beam weapons due to low energy output means it can only carry one at a time. Hizacks may also be equipped with missile pods instead of the hand thrown grenades of previous Zakus.

;*Heat Hawk
 
;*Heat Hawk
:An axe-like weapon used by the original [[MS-06 Zaku II]], whose name is short for "tomahawk". Thermal energy is relayed through the mobile suit's hand to heat the heat hawk's blade, allowing it to slice through the armor of enemy warships or mobile suits. Although the Hizack would normally use a beam saber, it would have to use this if it was using a beam rifle due to it's low-output generator.

;*Beam Saber
 
;*Beam Saber
:The standard armament of most MS, Beam Sabers emits high-energy Minovsky particles to form a blade-shaped I-field (via manipulation of electromagnetic fields), and then fills this I-field shell with superheated Minovsky particle plasma to produce an effective cutting blade. The termination of the I-field along a solid contact surface allows the plasma to eat away at the offending material until the I-field reestablishes itself, allowing the weapon to "cut" through almost any target. The Hizack was given a beam saber as a close combat weapon. However, it couldn't use it in conjunction with its beam rifle due to having a low-output generator.

;*BR-87A Beam Rifle
:A standard hand carried ranged beam weapon is the beam rifle, which is powered by a rechargeable energy cap. Capable of firing concentrated mega particles, attacks from a beam rifle can damage any ordinary armor that has not been specially treated to resist it. This beam rifle is the same as the one used by the Marasai, however, the Hizack's low generator output hinders the effectiveness of beam weapons.

The RMS-106 Hizack is the first mass production mobile suit brought into the world by [[Anaheim Electronics]]. Its external appearance resembles that of the famous Zaku II series used by the old Principality of Zeon forces, and this design could only have been created by Anaheim, which has absorbed the [[Zeonic]] Company which was once Zeon's major mobile suit maker. Zeonic's development know-how is incorporated in the machine's inner construction as well as its outward appearance, giving it the same high operating reliability and ease of production as the Zaku II. Naturally, it can use beam weapons, and it's the first mass production machine to include a linear seat and panoramic monitor as standard equipment.
+
The Hizack served as one of the three main mobile suit models that filled the Earth Federation forces' ranks from U.C. 0084-0087, alongside the [[RMS-179 GM II]] and [[RMS-117 Galbaldy β]], and was the primary mainstay mobile suit of the [[Titans]] until the [[RMS-108 Marasai]] was introduced. As the main unit of the Titans, the Hizack was used in many missions to eradicate anti-Federation dissidents. By 0087 the Hizack was primarily pitted against the [[Anti Earth Union Group|AEUG]] and [[Karaba]] organizations, however time and again it was proven that the rebel pilots and machines were simply superior to the Hizack. In the same year, the Hizack began being phased out as the Titans were supplied with newer machine developed by the Earth Federation, Anaheim Electronics, and their own research teams.

The Hizack was originally built and operated by the Earth Federation Forces, but the invasion of Earth by Neo Zeon during the First Neo Zeon War resulted in several of these units being captured by the enemy. Though it is likely that some Earth Federation combat units possessed Hizacks they were no longer one of the Federation's primary mobile suits, having been replaced by the [[RGM-86R GM III]], and [[MSA-003 Nemo]]. It is likely that use of the Hizack ceased because of its association with the Titans.

The RMS-106 Hizack (aka Hi-Zack) is a mass-production general-purpose mobile suit featured in Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam. It was based on the MS-06 Zaku II series and was used by EFSF groups, notably the Titans, during the Gryps War.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

A mass-produced mobile suit developed at Granada with help from Anaheim Electronics, which absorbed the Zeonic Company which was once Principality of Zeon's major mobile suit developer. While the Hizack's external appearance resembles that of the Zeon's famous Zaku II, it was a vast improvement over the older mobile suit. The Hizack's design incorporated both Earth Federation and Zeon technologies, with the latter contributing to it having the same high operating reliability and ease of production as the Zaku II. Data from the MS-06F2 Zaku II F2 Type was also referenced during development.[1]

The Hizack is outfitted with a titanium alloy ceramic composite armor, and has a higher output generator than that of a Zaku. It is also faster and more agile than its predecessors, and is easy to pilot. The Hizack is most often equipped with a 120mm machine gun kai, beam saber or heat hawk. It sometimes uses a beam rifle, but due to its low generator output, it can only carry one beam weaponry at a time. The Hizack can also be equipped with missile pods. Although the Titans were assigned to wipe out the remnants of the Zeon forces, their Hizack uses similar dark green color scheme. Meanwhile, the regular Earth Federation Forces used a dark blue color for their units.

Armaments

  • Shoulder Shield
Mounted on the right shoulder, it is a simple defense used to enemy's attacks.
  • Heat Hawk
An axe-like weapon first used by the original MS-06 Zaku II, its name is short for "tomahawk". Thermal energy is relayed through the mobile suit's hand to heat the weapon's blade, allowing it to slice through the armor of enemy warships or mobile suits. Although the Hizack normally use a beam saber, it has to use this if it was using a beam rifle due to its low-output generator.
  • Beam Saber
The beam saber is a small device held in the mobile suit's hands when deployed and is powered by a rechargeable energy capacitor. It emits high-energy Minovsky particles to form a blade-shaped I-field (via manipulation of electromagnetic fields), and then fills this I-field shell with superheated Minovsky particle plasma to produce an effective cutting blade for close combat. However, the Hizack couldn't use it in conjunction with a beam rifle due to having a generator with insufficient output.
  • 3-tube Missile Pod
The Hizack could optionally mount a pair of 3-tube missile pods on each side of its hips for long to mid-range attacks.
  • BR-87A Beam Rifle
A standard hand carried ranged beam weapon is the beam rifle. This particular model is the same as the one used by the Marasai, however, the Hizack's low generator output hinders its effectiveness. It is powered by a replaceable e-pac and is power rated at 2.2 MW.
  • Shield
A model of shield popular with Hizack pilots, it is mounted on the left arm. Shields are simple in their design, being essentially thick slabs of armor that the mobile suit can use to absorb the impact from attacks that, for whatever reason, cannot be dodged. However shields can only withstand so much pressure before becoming damaged themselves. The back side can store two spare e-pacs for the beam rifle.
  • 120mm Zaku Machine Gun Kai
A recreation of the original Zaku II's machine gun to provide a cheaper and less energy-consuming weapon. It is a shell firing gun that does not require energy to be used, however its effectiveness against heavy armor is very limited. Features an improved stock and improved accuracy with a federation standard sensor.
  • 135mm Anti-Ship Rifle
A long-barreled weapon used for long-range sniping attacks. It fires highly accurate solid rounds which can heavily damage warships. Appears on a customized Gunpla in episode 6 of Gundam Build Divers.

Special Equipment & Features

  • Ballute System
An atmospheric entry device designed to be used by a Mobile Suit. As the mobile suit enters the atmosphere, a bowl-shaped ballute (balloon parachute) deploys to protect it from the friction heat of atmospheric entry. The balloon then detaches, leaving the mobile suit with chest and leg hover units which ease its descent to the ground. If the mobile suit reaches the ground without expending all the fuel in the leg units, these devices can also be used for hovering and high-speed strike missions. The equipment is designed to be used by a multitude of different mobile suit models.

History

Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam

The Hizack served as one of the three main mobile suit models that filled the Earth Federation forces' ranks from U.C. 0084-0087, alongside the RMS-179 GM II and RMS-117 Galbaldy β, and was the primary mainstay mobile suit of the Titans until the RMS-108 Marasai was introduced. As the main unit of the Titans, the Hizack was used in many missions to eradicate anti-Federation dissidents. By 0087 the Hizack was primarily pitted against the AEUG and Karaba organizations, however time and again it was proven that the rebel pilots and machines were simply superior to the Hizack. In the same year, the Hizack began being phased out as the Titans were supplied with newer machine developed by the Earth Federation, Anaheim Electronics, and their own research teams.

Mobile Suit Gundam ZZ

The Hizack was originally built and operated by the Earth Federation Forces, but the invasion of Earth by Neo Zeon during the First Neo Zeon War resulted in several of these units being captured by the enemy. Though it is likely that some Earth Federation combat units possessed Hizacks, they were no longer one of the Federation's primary mobile suits, having been replaced by the RGM-86R GM III, and MSA-003 Nemo. It is likely that use of the Hizack ceased because of its association with the Titans.

Mobile Suit Gundam: Char's Counterattack

By U.C. 0093, the Hizack had been almost completely phased out and, as such, was either being used for scrap or for private purposes. One of these variants was the RMS-116H Hobby Hizack, a civilian use variant.

Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn

In U.C. 0096, during the events of Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn, the outdated Hizack is still used by both "The Sleeves" and the Republic of Zeon.

Notes & Trivia

  • In SD Gundam Capsule Fighter Online, the Titans-colored and EFSF-colored Hizacks showcase the unit's low tolerance for beam weaponry: the common Titans-colored Hizack is outfitted with a beam saber and the Zaku machine gun while the rare EFSF-colored Hizack is outfitted with a heat hawk and a beam rifle.
