Desert MS

The MS-06D Zaku Desert Type is one of the newest addition in the game. It's name says it all, it's built for desert combat as they're deployed in North Africa and the Middle East During the One Year War. The Zaku Desert Type has a unique ability that only a few MS have on Battle Operations. The ability to detect MS invisible on the radar, which was restricted to some event MS.

In combat, the Zaku Desert Type serves as Zeons counter to the GM Desert Type in that it has a ranged knockdown weapon, in this case, a 2 round heavy missile launcher. This weapon is complemented by a light missiles and a customizable main weapon. The MS-06 D also makes use of the cracker grenade.  When unobstucted, this MS can knock down any stunned enemy with ease, making them extremely vulnerable. The Zaku DT's ability to use stunning weapons like the Zaku bazooka with the knockdown missile as a secondary allows the DT to make it's own stuns. This makes the use of the DT far easier than the Desert GM.  However, the DT's main flaw is that any competent EF player will simply dodge roll when they see you preparing the knockdown missiles. Also, the DT's damage output is lower than the Desert GM unless one is able to land every part of the DT's combo attack (bazooka stun-knockdown missile-6 tube missile launcher).
