Technical and Historical Notes

 

Impressed by the RMS-099 Rick Dias developed by the Anti-Earth Union Group, the AEUG's Earthside allies, Karaba, develop a new test model ground combat mobile suit based on the Rick Dias' design. This new unit is called the MSK-008 Dijeh, and despite its outward appearance, it is quite similar to the successful Rick Dias in terms of performance. Like the Rick Dias, many of the engineers who develop the Dijeh are former Zeon mobile suit manufacturer employees, and its design does incorporate many Zeon-style features, such as monoeye sensors. One of its most notable visible features are the large radiator fins mounted on its back, which also serve to give the Dijeh high performance during atmospheric flight. To help keep its cost down due to Karaba's limited resources, it employs the beam rifle used by the AEUG's MSN-00100 Hyaku-Shiki, as well as the Rick Dias' clay bazooka. For close combat, the Dijeh is armed with a beam naginata ("naginata" is Japanese for "long-handled sword"). The Dijeh prototype is assigned to Karaba's top ace pilot, Amuro Ray, who uses his new mobile suit quite well during their war against the corrupt Titans in UC 0087.
