When military officers led by Zabi siblings tried to stop them, Casval furiously takes over the Guntank and proceed to eliminate almost every opposing forces until Artesia helps him regain his senses. Said Guntank was evacuated as a decoy to before its passengers escaped.
In UC. 0071, the Guntank was used to test Zeon's first Mobile Suit, MW-01 Mobile Worker Model 01 Late Type which resulted with the latter's victory. Following Zeon's Mobile Suit developments, the Guntanks were made obsolete.
