Technical and Historical Notes

The pinnacle of Newtype-use machines during its time, the Griefer units served as test beds for the Psychoframe that would eventually be utilized in the MSN-06S Sinanju. Neo Zeon used valuable data from past Psychoframe cockpits as well as stolen works from Anaheim when creating these machines. Five units were created, each with a different role to play, but all designed with Newtype pilots in mind. The basic frames were constructed much the same, consisting of Gundarium Alloy. Despite the various roles these machines played, they were made with little armor plating, with the intention of making them fast. While their speed and acceleration is nowhere near that of the Sinanju's, they are still rather formidable. They lack the ability to make the same fine-movement, but again they are dedicated machines that have become a good offensive measure against the Federations Jesta production line.

The YAMS-130D units are heavy artillery models, sporting the fixed armaments of the combining heat knives and two heat wires. The heat wires are very similar to the Heat Rod of the MS-07B Gouf. However, as stated the weapon is a retractable wire and thus is much thinner in design which makes it harder to see even when heated up. As, such it can not detain a opposing suit as could the Heat Rod, but can still trip them up if used properly. It produces an electrical discharge that can surge most equipment on a mobile suit. The D-Units also sport two three-tube missile launchers, hand grenade racks, and two beam cannons mounted over the shoulders for heavy weapons fire. The units also utilizes two Dual Heavy Beam Gatling Cannons, that are hand carried in use and operate off of the MS battery. With all of these extra armaments the armor and joints of the units have been reinforced in order to support the extra weight. The arms were of special concern so that they could operate the dual gatling cannons to the best of their ability. Naturally, the units are slower than the others of the Greifer series, but they sports an improved vernier cluster as an attempt to compensate. Regardless, the units are still considerably slower than the others. With all of these extra armaments this unit expends much more energy than the others of the line, but is nevertheless an astounding mobile suit. As of UC 0095 the D-Units are still in the possession of Neo Zeon's 'Sleeves'.
