MS-06RP/MS-06R-1/MS-06R-1A High Mobility Type Zaku II As the One Year War dragged on, the Zeon engineers strived to create a high-performance unit to replace their aging space fleet of MS-06F Zaku IIs, which were quickly being outclassed by the Earth Federation's new RGM-79 GM series of mobile suits. The first of the new improved units created was the MS-06RP Zaku II High Mobility Test Type. The Zaku II High Mobility Test Type added several thrusters around the edges of the leg armor, giving it greater speed, acceleration, and mobility, and larger propellant tanks which increased the unit's fuel storage capacity. Only two of these prototype Zaku II High Mobility Test Type units would be constructed, and both of them would be piloted by Zeon ace pilot, and former Zeonic Company mobile suit developer, Elliot Lem. After Major Lem gave the new unit his personal approval, the MS-06RP underwent a few very minor modifications and was slated for mass-production as the MS-06R-1 Zaku II High Mobility Test Type. A total of twenty-two MS-06R-1 Zaku II High Mobility Test Type were constructed and given to some of Zeon's notable ace pilots. One such unit was given to Shin Matsunaga, who earned the nickname the "White Wolf of Solomon" because of his exploits in his white Zaku II High Mobility Test Type around the asteroid fortress of Solomon. Overall, the Zaku II High Mobility Test Type proved to be an incredibly popular design. With its increased armor and fuel capacity, the design was a vast improvement over the standard Zaku II. After the successful release of the MS-06R-1 Zaku II High Mobility Test Type the Zeon engineers began to receive feedback from the pilots of the new units on ways the design of the mobile suit could be further improved upon. The new ideas were incorporated into the next release of the MS-06R-1A Zaku II High Mobility Type. The Zaku II High Mobility Type had some minor engine problems corrected, and the larger capacity propellant tanks were removed and replaced with exchangeable fuel cartridges, which were much quicker to reload and refuel. A total of fifty-six Zaku II High Mobility Types would be constructed, with half of the existing Zaku II High Mobility Test Types upgraded to the R1-A model. The Zaku II High Mobility Type became a highly sought after unit by many notable ace pilots such as the Black Tri-Stars, Eric Mansfield, Masaya Nakagawa, and Shin Matsunaga. But despite its incredible popularity and high performance, the suit was considered too difficult for rookie pilots to handle, as well as too expensive for a mass production run.
