Technical and Historical Notes

The ovm-e Dorado was a mass production mobile suit that by AG 140 had replaced the ovv-f Gafran. The Dorado’s design somewhat resembled the Gafran’s, although it dropped the dragon-like transformation ability. However, the Dorado included as standard equipment the electromagnetic armor first used on the ovv-a Baqto that countered the Earth Federation Forces’ DODS-based weapons. The Dorado presented a departure from Vagan design philosophy, which had mobile suits relying entirely on built-in weaponry. While the Dorado retained that style of armament, it could also equip optional vulcan guns on its forearms. The Vagans also produced a commander use variant, the ovm-el Dorado L. With the ability to operate on Earth and in space, the Dorado remained in regular use a quarter century after its introduction.
