Technology & Combat Characteristics
A variant of AMF-101 DINN developed during the ending stages of the First Alliance-PLANT War and as such, only a small number of units are produced. The DINN RAVEN (Reconnaissance Attack AdVanced Electronic iNstallation) is equipped with Mirage Colloid stealth system, which is referenced to in the "electronic installation" part of its the name. It is also equipped with enhanced sensors and has improved mobility. Additionally, the design of its wings, front skirts, calf thrusters, backpack, etc., are revised.
The "A" at the end of its model number suggests that like the ZGMF-X10A Freedom Gundam and ZGMF-X09A Justice Gundam, the DINN RAVEN is equipped with nuclear engine and N-jammer canceller, giving it practically unlimited operation time. The DINN RAVEN features the same armament as the original AMF-101 DINN. Although normally used by ZAFT special forces, the professional MS pilot, Kaite Madigan managed to get one through unknown means. Kaite's machine bears his trademark cross and custom handgun, and the hips storage racks are replaced by new hip armor that contain sub-thrusters.
- 6-tube multi-purpose launcher
- Mounted on the chest, two on each side for a total of four launchers. Each launcher contains 6 tubes to fit various weapons or equipment.
- MMI-M7S 76mm heavy assault machine gun
- A standard equipment for most DINN and its variants, and is also used by CGUE. It is usually stored in the right hip storage rack and held by the right arm when in use.
- MMI-M1001 190mm anti-aircraft shotgun
- Another standard equipment for most DINN and its variants. Although it is designated as a Anti-Air weapon, it can also be used on various targets. It is usually stored in the left hip storage rack and held by the left arm when in use.
- Custom Handgun
- A composite weapon used by mobile suits piloted by professional MS pilot, Kaite Madigan. It is a customized handgun that can switch between firing beam or solid rounds, and is equipped with a "Armor Schneider" knife blade for close combat. The custom handgun serves as the sole handheld weapon for Kaite's DINN RAVEN.
Special Equipment & Features
- Enhanced Sensors
- Mirage Colloid Stealth System
- A stealth system that when activated covers the mobile suit with Mirage Colloid particles, which bent light and radar waves around it, rendering the suit invisible to both visual and electronic detection.
During the First Alliance-PLANT War, ZAFT introduced its aerial DINN mobile suit series for battles inside Earth's atmosphere. Over time, several different variants of this suit were created. One of these variations is the DINN RAVEN (Reconnaissance Attack AdVanced Electronic iNstallation), which is an enhanced reconnaissance model introduced during the ending stages of the war. Professional MS pilot, Kaite Madigan, somehow manages to acquire one and painted it with his trademark white cross.
