The MS-09RS Rick Dom C.A. Custom (also known simply as Char's Rick Dom) is a variant of the MS-09R Rick Dom, specially modified to Char Aznable's specifications. It is piloted by Char in the novelization of Mobile Suit Gundam, replacing the MSN-02 Zeong as Char's final mobile suit during the One Year War.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

The RS Type Rick Dom was a variant of the MS-09R Rick Dom that received special modifications at the A Baoa Qu factory, improving its generator output and thrust. The scattering beam generator in its chest was modified to serve as an energy buffer, decreasing the strain placed on the supply connector in the arm and allowing it to use the high-powered beam bazooka.

Armaments

  • Scattering Beam Gun
Mounted in the chest, it does little damage to enemy mobile suits but can be used to blind enemy pilots for several seconds.
  • Heat Saber
The Rick Dom's main close combat weapon, it uses thermal energy to superheat its blade to melt through the armor of an enemy machine. It has an electrical discharge function and can store high charges via the application of Minovsky particle physics. As the heat saber degrades during use, it is discarded after usage. Mounted on the backpack when not in use.
  • M-120A1 120mm Machine Gun
Also referred to as a "rifle" by Zeon soldiers, Zeonic was contracted to develop this weapon. Its internal development code is "ZMC38III". It can switch between semi-automatic and automatic fire. Although useless against Luna Titanium Alloy, it can still destroy weaker armor material with multiple shots.
  • H&L-GB05R/360mm Giant Bazooka
A bazooka for MS that fires rocket-propelled 360mm physical rounds. Liquid fuel supplied through a pipe from the Rick Dom's hand is injected as a primary propellant, and then the projectile's speed is increased by rocket motor ignition. It is fed by a 10 rounds magazine, and a single round can blow the torso off of an enemy mobile suit.
  • Ex-T2-2 Beam Bazooka
One of the prototype beam weapons developed by Zeon near the end of the war, it uses a different method of mega particle compression than the Federation's energy CAP technology. Its use requires the Rick Dom's energy systems to be modified. Though it takes time to charge, it is said to be more powerful than even the MS-14A Gelgoog's beam rifle. However, due to frequent explosions during use, it never reached mass production.

History

In the novelization of Mobile Suit Gundam, Char gains this suit after his MS-06S Zaku II Commander Type is destroyed in battle at Texas Colony. Through this, Char and his team became part of Zeon's "Newtype Corps" team, comprised of MS-09R Rick Doms and at least one Newtype-use Mobile Armor. Char use this suit to battle, then later try to recruit, Amuro Ray in his attempt to overthrow the Zabi Family. In the end, Char use this suit to deliver Kycilia Zabi to confront her brother Gihren and assassinate him before Char tossed Kycilia to her death.
