The Observation Boat was a short-distance shuttle used by the Principality of Zeon during the One Year War. In January UC 0079, the Zeon ship Jotunheim deployed the experimental QCX-76A Jormungand cannon for use during the Battle of Loum. The combined lack of firing instructions from Zeon command and heavy Minovsky particle interference led Oliver May and Hideto Washiya to launch in an Observation Boat to gather targeting data and relay it to the Jormungand. However, they quickly learned that Zeon command had decided to focus on mobile suits for offense rather than the Jormungand, which was destroyed by fire from enemy Salamis class ships.
