The XM-06 Dahgi-Iris Custom (aka Long-Range Reconnaissance Type) was a modified version of the Crossbone Vanguard’s XM-06 Dahgi-Iris. Intended for reconnaissance and electronic warfare missions, the Dahgi-Iris Custom featured the same enhanced sensors as the standard XM-06. The suit was equipped with a propellant tank to extend its cruising range for recon missions. Due to its need to direct surplus energy to its electronic warfare equipment, the suit typically did not carry a beam rifle. Its armaments included a beam saber, shield, 120mm autocannon and a 3-barrel diffuse beam cannon. During the Crossbone Vanguard’s war in UC 0123 to establish Cosmo Babylonia, a Dahgi-Iris Custom was assigned to monitor Earth Federation Forces fleet movements near the Moon.
