Kit Insight: HGUC 1/144 MSN-06F Sinanju Schwarz "The Black Death" (Customised Build)


Model Number: MSN-06F Sinanju Schwarz "The Black Death"
Designation: Neo Zeon Custom Newtype-Use Psychoframe Mobile Suit

Designed with long range assault and siege warfare in mind, the Sinanju Schwarz features an astonishing loadout of ranged weaponry to decimate foes from afar. It doesn't help that the mobile suit is best used with a Newtype to take advantage of its psychoframe's deadly properties.

One of the more puzzling features on the original Sinanju is the absence of psycommu weapons to take full advantage of the psychoframe embedded into the mobile suit. The Schwarz addresses this deficiency, featuring a pair of somewhat Sazabi-style Funnel racks housed on top of the boosters, for a total of six medium funnels. In addition, the Schwarz also mounts two fin-like salvos of Funnel Missiles on its legs, for a total of 20 missiles to obliterate foes.

In the age of beam dispersal screens, I-Fields and beam-resistant coatings, the need for solid-based weaponry has been revisited. Even though such munitions deal lesser damage than beam weapons, they still pack a wallop, and can be a force to be reckoned with in the right hands. The Schwarz mounts two rocket bazookas as standard equipment, one under the beam rifle and another under the shield. This gives the mobile suit an all-encompassing style of attack, blending solid and beam weaponry into a vortex of destruction that few can escape from. The only downside is that each bazooka only holds a total of five rounds, but the weapons themselves can be ejected once ammunition has been spent to avoid becoming deadweight.
