Technical and Historical Notes

The United Nations Earth’s DTM-7000 Daughseat was specifically designed for aquatic combat. The Daughseat had a unique ability of being able to launch out its hand and grab other mobile suits, similar to the atomic scissors of the NRX-0015 Gundam Ashtaron. Though the Daughseats had beam guns mounted on their hands, they were mostly used for surface level assaults because beams had less than half their power in the water. Underwater, the Daughseats had to rely on the standard torpedoes and their hands, but they could also be equipped with anti-air torpedoes. Many of these units managed to survive the 7th Space War, with the majority of them ending up in the hands of the seafaring Orcs. The Orc leader Dorza Baroy later created a new innovation in radar: the D-Navi system. The D-Navi system combined a dolphin’s brain with a computer and proves to be the best underwater radar. However, equipping the Daughseats with D-Navi systems proved difficult because of the effort of capturing a live dolphin for its brain. Eventually, all the D-Navi systems were overloaded in A.W. 0015 by a mysterious white Newtype dolphin.
