Huh?

MS-06 series Zaku IIs - shoulder-mounted shields
MS-07 series Goufs - shield equipped
MS-14 series Gelgoog - shield equipped

Considering how many Zakus and Gelgoogs were made, I wouldn't use the word
"few"...

Its shield is capable of laying space mines and firing missiles, IIRC.

As far as I know only 1 prototype was built, it was meant to compete with
the Gelgoog for the next generation of mass-produced Zion suit.
