Unit Description:
      Introduced during the construction of the RDF space-borne forces, the Workpod provided a safer and more efficient alternative to standard EVA suits. They were integral to the construction, and later the maintenance, of the Europa and Hermes Sublight Warships. The SDF-1 and the rest of the fleet also used the workpod in recovery operations, to retrieve damaged craft or to recovery destroyed enemy pods for analysis of their technology. They were particularly invaluable in affixing the Prometheus and the Daedelus to the SDF-1, as well as transferring materials from Macross City. Workpods remained in service until shortly after the Robotech Factory was transferred to Sol. From then on, most Robotech warships were either constructed in dry dock, or in the case of many ASC vessels, were built on the ground.
