Technical and Historical Notes

 

When the Principality of Zeon's invasion of Earth begins during the One Year War, one problem their military tries to address is developing a high-performance mobile suit for ground combat. Zimmad Company steps forward with its revolutionary YMS-09 Prototype Dom. An entirely new design line built exclusively for ground combat, the Prototype Dom overcomes the slow speed problem found with ground combat mobile suits by adding a series of high-powered thermonuclear jet engines in its legs and waist "skirt" armor. This gives the Prototype Dom the ability to hover along the ground at up to 240 kph, and thus also making it extremely maneuverable. Two units are constructed at Zimmad's Side 3 factory and shipped to California Base on Earth for field testing. After the tests prove the design a success, the standard MS-09 Dom goes into mass production.
