Technical and Historical Notes

 

During the One Year War, the Earth Federation Forces are at a disadvantage due to their late start in mobile suit development. As a stopgap measure, they refit the SP-W03 Mobile Pod into the combat model RB-79 Ball. In addition to the standard model and the the RB-79K type, the Federation also produces the RB-79C Ball Type C. The Type C is similar to the standard model, but it mounts a 120mm recoilless cannon instead of a 180mm one. In addition, it features an extra set of manipulator arms to handle larger objects. After the One Year War, most of the Balls are disassembled, but some are kept in service defending military bases. During Operation Stardust in late UC 0083, many Ball Type Cs are used to guard the Solar System II and its fleet of ships.
