The YS-11 Dodai YS was a bomber developed by the Principality of Zeon that also doubled as a mobile suit sub-flight system. The Dodai YS had a cockpit in its forward section that could accommodate several pilots. The Dodai YS was armed with eight missile launchers mounted in its forward section. During the course of the war, the Zeon also created the YS-11G Dodai GA, a unit focused on anti-ground attacks, along with the upgraded Dodai II. In UC 0080, salvaged Dodai YS units were utilized by the breakaway South Seas Alliance as part of its defense forces. These remodeled units featured two fewer missile launchers than the original Zeon version. The Dodai YS was succeeded by the all-environment use Dodai Custom deployed by the AEUG during the Gryps War in UC 0087. However, the original Dodai YS remained in service with Earth-based Zeon remnants as late as UC 0096.
