A middle-class mobile suit built and used by civil defense forces at the Riah Republic’s Side 6 colonies during the One Year War, the RH-35E Draken E was designed for use against humans and human-sized objects/targets. Its crude manipulator hands were not capable of wielding weapons bigger or more complicated than small beam sabers, and it was quite ineffective against full-scale military mobile suits – as the Libot Colony defense forces learned the hard way when the Principality of Zeon’s MS-18E Kämpfer came calling on a secret Earth Federation Forces research base via the local city streets.
