Special Equipment & Features
- Alaya-Vijnana System
- An organic device system, it is an old type of man-machine interface. Apparently, the system was developed during the Calamity War to maximize the abilities of mobile suit, however it is also possible to use the system for piloting mobile worker. The system consisted of two parts, one part is installed in the mobile worker, and the other part (informally referred to as "Whiskers") is implanted into the pilot’s spine (usually at a young age as the implant only fuse with growing children). Thanks to this system, the pilot can be connected to the mobile worker's computer and directly process its data. It also allows the pilot (even uneducated ones) to operate the mobile worker without reading the instruction manual. The implant in the pilot also enhances spatial awareness. The CGS Mobile Worker Commander Type have two Alaya-Vijnana Systems, one for the pilot and another for the commander.
Orga Itsuka often observe the battlefield and give orders from the second rear seat of a brown colored CGS Mobile Worker Commander Type. Its pilots were initially Eugene, Biscuit, and then later Takaki.
