Technology & Combat Characteristics
A mobile suit operated by the Principality of Zeon's Living Dead Division in the Thunderbolt Sector. It is equipped with a specialized backpack.
The Rick Dom (Thunderbolt Ver.)s were used by Hoover and Fisher Ness to assist Daryl Lorenz in defending an attack from a squadron of RGM-79 GM (Thunderbolt Ver.). Although all goes well at first, Io Fleming managed to sneak up on Hoover, killing him and hijacking his Rick Dom. Io then used the Rick Dom to destroy a Big Gun and escaped back to his ship.
Intel from the stolen Rick Dom allowed the Federation forces to learn of the snipers' frequented spots, which they attacked more efficiently after being assigned the FA-78 Full Armor Gundam (Thunderbolt Ver.). As Io attacked Fisher's Rick Dom, Daryl saved him by firing on the Gundam, but the shot was deflected by a thunderbolt. Fisher escaped with minor damages to his Rick Dom.
Fisher later attacked the Federation's Volunteer Squadron after they destroyed a MS-06 Zaku II (Thunderbolt Ver.) during an assault. He then destroyed at least one RB-79 Ball (Thunderbolt Ver.) and 3 RGC-80 GM Cannon (Thunderbolt Ver.). Fisher's unit eventually sustained major damage, with the backpack and weapons being completely destroyed.
In the manga, a few Rick Doms were assigned to Zeon's main fleet. They defended the fleet when 4 GMs attacked the fleet from below. However they were likely destroyed in the final assault on the Zeon fleet.
