Technology and Combat Characteristics
A colony construction worker built before the One Year War, the Catl serves as a worker on building colonies in space before the first mobile suit was introduced. Several of these units were produced by the Earth Federation but it was phased out when the One Year War begun.
An unknown number of Catl were produced before the One Year War and fielded in space for colony construction. However when the war broke out in U.C. 0079, some of the units were destroyed or abandoned.
But one existing Catl unit still exists at the Moon Moon colony in Side 3 in U.C 0088, where it was worshiped as a god by the people. Mondo Agake and Rasara Moon reactivated the ancient mobile worker and used it in battle against several of Neo Zeon's AMX-003 Gaza-C units. Surprisingly, the aging mobile suit proved to be formidable in combat and fought off the enemy mobile suits despite being built primarily for construction.
