With resources scarce and offensive technology constantly being leapfrogged by the enemy, the Principality military created a program to upgrade existing MS units.  The most obvious choice for an upgrade was the reliable, but dated, Zaku II.  The FZ model improves on its base with a new cockpit and added thrusters, making it much more maneuverable.  Unfortunately the changes are a drain on fuel, cutting its operational time in half.
