Technology & Combat Characteristics
Zimmad, which demonstrated high technical capabilities in the development of engine technology, under took development of self-designed mobile suits during consignment production of Zeonic's MS-06 Zaku II and Gouf. For mobility tests conducted in space, the MS-06RD-4 was fitted with the torso of a Zaku and its legs were equipped with thrusters for examination. The collected data would be used in the development of the space-use specification of the YMS-08B Dom Test Type which in turn led to the creation of the MS-09R Rick Dom in a short period of time.
