HGUC MS-09F Domtropen - Built & Painted














"Dom Tropen" was deployed mainly at Africa Front, specialized and re-designed MS with the goal of optimum operation in desert environment. They are featured in UC0083, as after OYW, a small remainder were operated by the Principality of Zeon remnants. Dom Tropen Sand Brown MS 09F is a mass production MS that appeared in "Mobile Suit Gundam 0083". These Principality of Zeon remnants assisted the hijacked Gundam GP02, escaped to space from Africa. 

It was modified to more aerodynamic shape and the maintenance of improving intake filter leg thermonuclear jet hover to counter earth's gravitation pull to react better to desert surface. In addition, the compatibility of equipment has been thoroughly improved as these sand hover units desert obtained efficiently surface effects over normal Dom system unit. In addition to the dust filter physical filters, an electromagnetic induction or a centrifugal separation mechanism is incorporated to prevent contamination of large and small dust can proof equipment. 

Head unit basic structure is close to Rick Dom Ⅱ, rather than Dom, sub-sensor is equipped with top of the head Improved type was changed to a magazine type the bullet-feed method. Also, disposable rocket launcher, which is widely used in the late his one-year war. However even with automatic tracking device, it is still very difficult for the rocket launch to hit a moving target. Weapon for hand-to-hand combat is the heat saber. Saber portion made up of generation device to change the energy into heat with high efficiency.

i still think that this Rick Dom II variant a.k.a. Dom Tropen, doesn’t quite give you the feeling of a quick response unit, despite the improvements performed in its components and systems... on the other hand, the color scheme is suitable for a mobile suit specialized in dessert operations and surely is fitted with a good assortment of weapons, better than what you expect from a mass produced unit... the exterior design of the Zeon units is not my kind in most cases, but i definitely love the head design in this model, is quite distinctive !!!... =)

Maybe the bulky look of this MS gave the impression of it been slow. However the hovering capability and sand filtering system made seeing believing otherwise. Can't agreed more that the armaments are heavy and in a way gung-ho. The T-Shape mono-eye len looks like a Nintendo directional controller to me.. The days of up up down down left right left right A B Select Start.
