Technical and Historical Notes
The AMF-101 DINN was a mobile designed for sustained aerial combat on Earth. The DINN's design was similar to the ZGMF-1017 GINN, with the exception of the extendable wings used for flight and a helmet-like attachment used to increase the suit's aerodynamics. The DINN's armaments consisted of an anti-aircraft shotgun and an assault machine gun also used by the ZGMF-515 CGUE. The DINN was also equipped with four multipurpose launchers in the chest which could be fitted with missiles. DINNs were deployed all across the Earth, and many units participated in ZAFT's Operation Spit Break, a failed attempt to destroy the Earth Alliance's JOSH-A base in Alaska. During Spit Break, a silver commander's unit was used by ace pilot Rau Le Creuset to infiltrate the Alaska Base. In addition to the standard DINN model, ZAFT also produced several variations, including the AME-WAC01 DINN Special Electronic Installation Type, AMRF-101C AWACS DINN and AMF-103A DINN RAVEN.
