Technical and Historical Notes

 

During the One Year War, the Earth Federation creates the RB-79 Ball, a machine made by outfitting mobile worker pods with armor and weapons and used to support their new mass production RGM-79 GM mobile suit. Some 60 years later, the concept is revived in the form of the Type 133 Ball. Despite its ancestor's reputation as a flying coffin, the Ball concept remains sound even into the second Universal Century thanks to its low production cost and the relative ease of pilot training when compared with standard mobile suits. For these reasons, the Federation develops the Type 133 as an inexpensive "seat filler" to bolster their forces. Other than the fact that it wields three recoilless cannons, the Type 133's performance is apparently not much different from the original Ball, and it fails to make any kind of significant impact on the Jovian War in UC 0133.
