The Tarara was a space debris collection ship used by the Republic of Zeon. The Tarara was equipped with eight manipulator arms that featured attractors on their tips to draw in and capture space debris. The ship featured spherical cockpits mounted in its forward and aft sections, with each cockpit controlling four arms. Collected debris was placed inside a large net carried by one of the arms. The Tarara was used in UC 0077 to help clean up debris after a Salamis class cruiser crashed into a colony at Side 3.
