A reconnaissance mobile suit designed for use by officers, the Crossbone Vanguard’s XM-06 Dahgi-Iris was typically used in conjunction with a team of XM-03 Ebirhu-S recon units in a supervisory and escort role. Unlike most other Crossbone Vanguard mobile suits, the Dahgi-Iris was not equipped with a beam shield, as its operation interfered with the reception of data by the highly sensitive sensor systems planted all over the mobile suit’s body. In its place, the Dahgi-Iris carried a standard solid shield, and it was also armed with a diffuse beam cannon in its torso for additional heavy firepower to complement its beam rifle and beam saber. One Dahgi-Iris unit was piloted by Annamarie Brougia, who later defected to the Earth Federation Forces during the Crossbone Vanguard invasion of UC 0123. Annamarie’s Dahgi-Iris was then repainted into an off-yellow color to more easily distinguish it from its loyal Crossbone counterparts. However, Annamarie was killed in her first sortie for the EFF by her former Crossbone commander, ace pilot Zabine Chareux.
