Technical and Historical Notes

Following the end of the First Neo Zeon War in UC 0089, the Earth Federation Forces created the Londo Bell unit, which was tasked with hunting down Zeon and Titans remnants while avoiding the mistakes of the Titans. The EFF initially imposed restrictions on the use of Gundam-type suits, and it was determined that the mass production RGM-86R GM III was insufficient to match the skills of Newtype ace pilot Amuro Ray. In response, a Karaba MSK-008 Dijeh unit was upgraded by Londo Bell’s mechanics into the MSK-008R Rick Dijeh. Londo Bell’s mechanics modified the binders and thrusters from the RMS-099 Rick Dias for use by the Dijeh, which was originally a ground combat unit. The original’s head-mounted cockpit was modified, with the head raising and sliding back to allow access to the cockpit block. The Rick Dijeh retained the original version’s armaments, which include vulcan guns, a beam naginata, a beam rifle and a clay bazooka. It could also carry grenades and use the same hyper mega launcher as the AEUG’s MSZ-006 Zeta Gundam. In UC 0092, Amuro used the Rick Dijeh in a battle against Titans remnants. After sustaining damage in a battle against the MRX-013-3 Psycho Gundam Mk-IV G-Doors, the Rick Dijeh was repaired and renamed as the Modified Rick Dijeh.
