According to a Japanese Zaku site, four R2s were built by engineers led by
Major Elliot Rem, three were dispatched to Granada and one was kept for
further experimental modifications and designated R3. Apparently the R3
borrows heavily from the MS-11 ActoZaku parts bin but is considered a
prototype Gelgoog. The R3 was also known as 'Zaku III' at the time.

The MS-06-R3S High mobility Zaku Gelgoog testbed model was piloted by Thomas
Mayer
