A ground combat mobile suit capable of atmospheric flight, the ZM-S09G Tomliat was designed to address the problems found its predecessor, the ZM-S08G Zolo. Rather than using the costly and complicated separation/docking component system, BESPA instead opted for a single, fast transforming body for the Tomliat. With the generator and other parts incorporated from the Zolo, the Tomliat was relatively low cost unit in terms of production. The Tomliat, in its attack helicopter mode, was capable of reentering Earth’s atmosphere on its own, and many Tomliats were deployed to Earth in exactly this fashion, rather than be shipped down on shuttles or other transports. Zanscare also produced a reconnaissance variant, the ZM-S09GE Tomliat Recon Type.
