The Dessa Type was a worker mobile suit developed by Buffo Aerodynamics, a subsidiary of the Buffo Concern. Created with the intention of reducing the size and weight of mobile suits, the first prototype was created in UC 0108, with mass production announced for UC 0115. The Dessa Type’s goggles equipped a hybrid sensor capable of three-dimensional analysis in space combat. In place of a left hand, the Dessa Type featured a manipulator could carry a work torch in its right hand. The Dessa Type utilized an external generator that ensured high output by distributing power across the body. The Dessa Type was exhibited at a mobile suit show in UC 0121, but its existence was built on a lie, and its true purpose was to disguise the Buffo Concern’s development of combat ready mobile suits for the Crossbone Vanguard. Under the cover of mass production of the Dessa Type, the Buffo Concern acquired large quantities of parts from Anaheim Electronics and Yashima Heavy Industries, which were instead used in the manufacture of Crossbone Vanguard mobile suits like the XM-01 Den’an-Zon. In UC 0123, the Crossbone Vanguard launched its invasion of the Frontier IV space colony as the first step toward establishing Cosmo Babylonia.
