Technical and Historical Notes

 

The SP-W03 Space Pod is a unit built to assist in the construction of the space colonies. This simple unit consists of a main ball-shaped body and two manipulator hands for use in construction. When the One Year War erupts in January UC 0079, the Earth Federation Forces are caught flatfooted by the Principality of Zeon's introduction of the mobile suit as a weapon of modern warfare. The EFF are at work on their own mobile suits under the Operation V banner, but none are combat ready at the war's outset. The EFF use the Space Pod to resurrect the RX-76 project, and they eventually become the combat use RB-79 Ball, which is deployed as a stopgap measure until the rollout of the EFF's first mass production mobile suit, the RGM-79 GM. After the war, Space Pods are used to clean up space debris as part of the Colony Reclamation Project.
