Principality of Zeon
[Left] MS-06S Char’s Zaku II
A Zaku II customized for Char Aznable that he has used since the Battle of Loum. Char was promoted to lieutenant commander due to his role in the Battle of Loum. Appointed by Vice Admiral Dozle with the special mission of tracking the V Project, a mobile suit development project by the Earth Federation Forces, he became the commanding officer of the private Musai-class light cruiser Falmer. As a result of Char’s Zaku II also becoming the commanding unit onboard the Falmer, its markings have also been altered. It has been inscribed with an emblem on its waist signifying its affiliation to the Falmer Corps, a white line that runs through its body representing its status as the commanding unit, and a personal mark on its left shoulder and shield, giving it a dignified appearance different from its appearance during the Battle of Loum.
[Right] MS-06C-6/R6 Zaku II (Denim)
The suit piloted by Master Sergeant Denim, a junior commander of the mobile suit corps affiliated with the Falmer Corps under Char’s command. The Zaku II units deployed to Char’s troops after receiving his special mission are also made with special specifications. The Zaku II affiliated with the Falmer Corps, which include Denim’s suit, is a suit called the C-6 Type that has been produced in limited quantity and falls in between the C Type, an early production type manufactured for the outbreak of the One Year War, and the F Type, the version that became the definitive type mass produced after the war. The shape of C-6’s chest armor was altered from the C Type and is a suit that has reinforced armor and armaments thanks to Vulcans that have been placed in its chest. It is also additionally equipped with the “R6 Kit”, two multi-mount machine guns built into its arms and acts as an additional armor (for that reason, its model number is written as MS-06C-6/R6). An emblem signifying its affiliation with the Falmer Corps is inscribed onto its leg.
