Technical and Historical Notes

 

The Wappa is a hovercraft used by Principality of Zeon ground units during the One Year War in UC 0079. As a unit intended mainly for reconnaissance, the Wappa is ill-suited for combat due to its light weaponry and complete lack of protection for the pilot. However, one group of Zeon soldiers put their Wappas to novel use by utilizing their small size to plant multiple explosives all over Amuro Ray's RX-78-2 Gundam. Because the Gundam is too big to confront the Wappas during their attack, Amuro is forced to disarm all the bombs by hand afterward - a task he barely completes before they explode.
