Technology & Combat Characteristics
The Rick Dias S was an minor improvement over the standard RMS-099 Rick Dias, it removed the beam pistols and replaced the clay bazooka with a more powerful long bazooka, allowing the Rick Dias S to act as a long range support unit. While the random binders was removed, it's overall performance is better than the original Rick Dias. It was designed to work with the FXA-04 D-Defenser an assist unit similar to the G-Defenser developed for the RX-178 Gundam Mk-II. The D-Defenser would provide great thrust for the Rick Dias S in space and also had a pair of machine guns as addition weaponry. The Rick Dias S combined with D-Defenser was also known as the Super Dias.
- 2-barrel 55mm Vulcan Phalanx
- Mounted in the top of the Rick Dias' head, and covered by a hinged hood when not in use, they are equivalent to the vulcan guns commonly used by other mobile suits. These shell firing weapons have a high-rate of fire, but have little power and are generally ineffective against mobile suits; however, the vulcan gun can damage lightly armored areas such as the sensors. These weapons are ideal for shooting down small, fast moving, lightly armored targets such as missiles or small vehicles.
