Technical and Historical Notes

 

Impressed by the RMS-099 Rick Dias developed by the AEUG, their Earth-based allies, Karaba, developed a new test model ground combat mobile suit based on the Rick Dias' design. This new unit was the MSK-008 Dijeh, and despite its outward appearance, it was quite similar to the successful Rick Dias in terms of performance. Like the Rick Dias, many of the engineers who developed the Dijeh were former Zeon mobile suit manufacturer employees, and its design incorporated many Zeon-style features, such as monoeye sensors. One of its most notable visible features were the large radiator fins mounted on its back, which also served to give the Dijeh high performance during atmospheric flight. To help keep its cost down due to Karaba's limited resources, it employed 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 was armed with a beam naginata. The Dijeh prototype is assigned to Karaba's top ace pilot, Amuro Ray, who used his new mobile suit quite well during their war against the corrupt Titans in UC 0087. Several years later, Londo Bell mechanics modified a Dijeh unit for space by implementing the Rick Dias' binders. Designated the MSK-008R Rick Dijeh, this custom unit was also piloted by Amuro. In UC 0097, four Dijeh units were used in an operation by the civilian Luio & Co. to make contact with Martha Vist Carbine and gather information about the RX-0 Unicorn Gundam 03 Phenex.
