The YMS-08B Dom Test Type was an experimental mobile suit developed by Zimmad Company. The YMS-08B introduced several features seen later in the YMS-09 Prototype Dom, including its monoeye shape, heat saber, and thermonuclear jet engines for hovering above the ground. Data from the MS-06RD-4 Zaku II RD-4 Type was used for the development of a space version that featured a standard MS-06 type cockpit rather than the ground type’s YMS-07 style cockpit. After successful tests on the YMS-09, the design entered mass production as the ground use MS-09 Dom and the space use MS-09R Rick Dom.
