Technical and Historical Notes

 

The Zeon military introduces the MS-09F/Trop Dom Tropen late in the One Year War, designed to operate exclusively in localized desert and tropical regions on Earth ("tropen" is German for "tropical"). In addition to sand protection filters to protect its equipment and powerful cooling systems to overcome the desert heat, the Dom Tropen features special sand protection filtered intakes for its leg-mounted thermonuclear jet engines, allowing the mobile suit to retain its high ground hovering speeds without fear of sand ruining the engines. It also sports specialized block-shaped armor designed to help keep sand from getting inside. Though the exact production numbers of the Dom Tropen are unknown, many units survive the war, with two participating in the theft of the Earth Federation Forces' RX-78GP02A Gundam GP02A Physalis mobile suit in October UC 0083 and four units aiding in the defense of Zeon's underground Kinbareid Base in eastern Africa. More than a decade later, Zeon remnants continue to use the Dom Tropen during an attack on Australia's Torrington Base in UC 0096.
