On the dark side of space colony Side 3, the last improved and developed Mobile Worker MW-01 Model 01 Final Type, a prototype experimental man-made mobile weapon led by Dozle Zabi was under development. Improvements have been made to each part based on the data from the Mobile Worker MW-01 Model 01 Late Type, and opinions from the test pilots. Improvements were made on the chest armor around the cockpit to protect the pilot from incoming attacks .
The space specification is equipped with thrusters and verniers for attitude control in outer space on the shoulders, back, torso and legs, and was used by the Autonomous Republic of Zeon in the recovery of space debris in its neighboring zones. Its attitude control technology and operational data in space where used as reference in the development of mobile suits .
In U.C. 0074, Gihren Zabi saw the MW-01 Model 01 Final Type while inspecting the Dark Colony. Despite Dozle stating that the arms were "really mobile", Gihren was unsatisfied with its design, and he decided to cancel the MS Plan, believing that it would never become an effective weapon. However, Dr. T.Y Minovsky intervened, presenting blueprints of the MI-11 and a CG model of the YMS-03 Waff. Thus, Gihren rescinded the order (on the condition they can get the next model ready within 1 year) .
