Technical and Historical Notes

 

By UC 0074, Zeon's mobile suit development is in danger of cancelation due to the inability to miniaturize the fusion reactor of the MW-01 Mobile Worker Model 01 Late Type. Gihren Zabi is convinced to allow the project to continue when Dr. Torenov Y. Minovsky makes a breakthrough and develops a new fusion reactor that would later bear his name. The new reactor is utilized in the prototype YMS-03 Waff (named after "weaponry" or "armament" in German), which uses a fluid pulse system to allow for high mobility in space. The Waff features the same forearm attachment exchange function from the Model 01 Late Type. Its armaments include a prototype bazooka, heat hawk and shield. Several Waff units are produced, but Zeon's focus switches to the combat-ready successor MS-04 Bugu and eventually the MS-05 Zaku I.
