The YMS-09 Prototype Dom is a prototype ground mobile suit and is the predecessor to the MS-09B Dom. It is piloted by Frederick Cranberry.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

The Prototype Dom was able to overcome the speed problems that affected previous ground combat mobile suits by hovering over the ground instead of walking on it. This hovering capability is achieved via the addition of thermonuclear jet engines in the soles of the feet, in the rear leg armor, and in the rear skirt armor. While hovering, the Prototype Dom was able to reach a top ground speed of up to 240 kilometers per hour, much higher compared to the top ground speed of Zeon's MS-06J Zaku II Ground Types, which was only a little over 80 kilometers per hour. By hovering, the Prototype Dom also unparalleled maneuverability, able to skate back and forth over the ground with ease.


  • Heat Saber
A melee weapon which uses thermal energy to superheat its blade to melt through the enemy's armor. The Heat Saber was stored on Prototype Dom's backpack when not in use.
  • 360mm Giant Bazooka
A new projectile weapon developed for Prototype Dom's 'hit hard and hit fast' attack philosophy, the 360mm Giant Bazooka was fed by a 10 rounds magazine. It was capable of destroying mobile suits with a single hit and can inflict heavy damage to battleships.
  • H&L-SB25K/280mmA-P Zaku Bazooka
The 280mm Zaku Bazooka was a standard shell-based projectile weapon that could be equipped to a Zaku/Gouf/Dom type mobile suits. The bazooka fired explosive rounds that were effective against the armor of Earth Federation mobile suits and battleships.


When the Principality of Zeon's invasion of Earth itself began during the One Year War, one problem their military tried to address was developing a high-performance mobile suit for ground combat. Zimmad Company stepped forward with its revolutionary YMS-09 Prototype Dom. It is an entirely new design line built exclusively for ground combat.

Two Prototype Doms were constructed at Zimmad's facilities in Side 3 and were shipped to Zeon's California Base for testing. After the designs were field tested, the Prototype Dom was deemed to be a resounding success and the Principality of Zeon immediately ordered the unit to be mass-produced as the MS-09B Dom.

During the events in Mobile Suit Gundam Zeonic Front: Indignation of Zeon animation, a lone Prototype Dom unit was seen guarding Zeon's Odessa base in Eastern Europe.
