Technical and Historical Notes

The Dopp was a Principality of Zeon atmospheric fighter that made its debut in the early stages of the One Year War following the invasion and occupation of Earth. The Dopp was frequently assigned to escort and patrol duty, but also used to engage ground-based targets. Although Zeon had an advantage through the introduction of the mobile suit, the Earth Federation Forces possessed an air force capable of countering the Dopp. The Dopp was armed with a pair of 20mm vulcan guns housed in the same area as the 6-tube missile launchers. Earth Attack Force Commander Garma Zabi preferred to sortie into combat with a custom colored Dopp rather than a mobile suit. After the war ended, Dopps remained in service with Earth-based Zeon remnants. In UC 0090, multiple Dopps were in use with the PMC Themis. Decades later, the Dopp served as the inspiration for another fighter from an invading space force: the Zanscare Empire’s Overhead Hawk.
