The MW-01 Mobile Worker Model 01 Colony Coating Type was a variant of the Principality of Zeon’s MW-01 Mobile Worker series. The Colony Coating Type’s lower body was replaced with a six-wheeled buggy like vehicle. The new bottom mounted two large tanks with heat resistant liquid. The forearm attachments were replaced and connected to a spraying device, while the shoulders mounted four wire tensioners that secured the Mobile Worker to the colony’s surface. As the One Year War broke out in January UC 0079, Zeon forces captured Island Iffish, the capital colony of Side 2 Hatte. Multiple Colony Coating Type units were deployed to spread heat resistant material on the colony’s windows to prepare it for Operation British. After the coating was complete, GG Gas Infusion Vessels pumped poison gas into Island Iffish and killed its inhabitants. Zeon forces then attached rocket boosters to the colony and broke it out of its stable orbit, sending it on a path to crash into the Earth Federation Forces’ Jaburo headquarters in South America. However, the colony broke up into three pieces during atmospheric reentry, destroying the city of Sydney and causing severe damage to Asia and North America.
