The 100th unit of the first production run of the MS-09R Rick Dom was specially designated as a custom unit for Space Attack Force commander Dozle Zabi. As with his earlier custom MS-06F Zaku II, his Rick Dom’s cockpit was modified to accommodate his large frame. It was also painted green and decorated with golden relief patterns and spikes. Despite these customizations, the unit’s performance was unchanged from the standard Rick Dom. In addition to the Rick Dom’s regular armaments, Dozle’s unit carried the large heat hawk developed for his Zaku II. Dozle piloted his custom Rick Dom during a naval review held near the end of the One Year War. The unit saw combat during the Battle of Solomon in December UC 0079, but the pilot’s identity was unknown.
