Technical and Historical Notes

 

In UC 0071, the Republic of Zeon conducted secret research to develop a humanoid mobile weapon on Side 3's Dark Colony. Publicly, however, the machine was labeled a Mobile Worker with the intended use of lunar surface construction. The Mobile Worker Model 01 Early Type was a crude machine, featuring an exposed cockpit and large fusion reactor mounted on the backpack that limited mobility. The Mobile Worker featured swappable forearm modules, and its right arm mounted a claw module rather than a standard human-type hand. A bulletproof shield was mounted on the left forearm. It performed well in combat tests against the RTX-65 Guntank Early Type. Its movable camera, known as the monoeye, was adopted as the standard head sensor on future models. As development on the Mobile Worker continued, researchers focused on ways to miniaturize the bulky external fusion reactor.
