The SP-W03 Space Pod was a unit built to assist in the construction of the space colonies. This simple unit consisted of a main ball-shaped body and two manipulator hands for use in construction. When the One Year War erupted in January UC 0079, the Earth Federation Forces were caught flat-footed by the Principality of Zeon’s introduction of the mobile suit as a weapon of modern warfare. The EFF were at work on their own mobile suits under the Operation V banner, but none were combat ready at the war’s outset. The EFF used the Space Pod to resurrect the RX-76 project, and they eventually became the combat use RB-79 Ball, which was deployed as a stopgap measure until the rollout of the EFF’s first mass production mobile suit, the RGM-79 GM. After the war, Space Pods were used to clean up space debris as part of the Colony Reclamation Project.
