The MS-06FZ Zaku II KAI is one of several variants of the MS-06 Zaku II line of Mobile Suits.
The MS-06FZ Zaku II Kai featured greater acceleration and a redesigned and improved cockpit. It also had the option of two different “helmet” designs. The “A-Type” helmet, which was the more common design, was similar to the typical helmet of the Zaku II series. The “B-Type” helmet was modeled after the Stahlhelm helmet used by the German army in World War II.
The Zaku II Kai’s main improvement came from its greatly increased thruster acceleration and overall improved maneuverability. However, this also meant that due to increased fuel consumption the unit’s operational time was shorter: about 50% of that of the original Zaku II. It also used titanium and ceramic composite armor rather than the super high-tensile steel armor of the original Zaku, which proved more resistant to both regular ballistics and beam weapons. In addition, it was lighter than the previous armor, leaving more space for fuel, thrusters and additional equipment.
