Due to its limited funding and resources, the South Seas Alliance assembled its mobile weapons by using salvaged and refitted mobile suits from both the Earth Federation and Principality of Zeon.

The SRf-06 Dahle was part of the Alliance’s defence forces that fended off a Zeon skirmish team in August UC 0080. It deployed both ground and water types against the Zeon’s MSM-04 Acguy team.


The SRf-06 Dahle was a design the Alliance created using salvage parts from the RGM-79 GM and MS-06F Zaku II.

The Dahle had a standard cockpit in its torso. It could mount a floatation gear to engage on water surface.


The Dahle used standard weapons designed for the Zaku II, including a ranged weapon and a Heat Hawk for melee combat. It usually deployed with a 120 mm machine gun or a 280 mm bazooka.

120 mm machine gun

The ZMP-50D machine gun was developed specifically for the Zaku II line. It was drum-fed with 100 rounds per drum. It did not require power to be fired. However, that reduced its effectiveness against heavy armour.

The Heat Hawk Type 5 was a melee weapon designed for the Zaku II. It was an axe with a super-heated metal blade that could melt armour as it cut. The thermal energy was generated by the Dahle’s fusion reactor and relayed through its hands to the Heat Hawk.

It was mainly used in close combat or against enemy ships. The Heat Hawk was clasped on the rear armour when not in use.


The Dahle had a shield mounted on its left arm. While the shield provided defence against conventional melee weapons and projectile weapons, it was unable to withstand beam weaponry.

The 280 mm Zaku bazooka was designed for the Zaku II. It could only take one front-loaded round each time. Due to the method of reloading and the low ammunitions capacity, the pilot had to be very tactful in using it. A magazine of four rounds was stored on the side hip armour.

The bazooka was clasped on the rear waist armour when not in use.

Behind the scenes

The Dahle is known as the RRf-06 Zanny in the Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt manga. The Zanny is described as an Earth Federation development as part of its MS program.
