Related Matter: The Monster's Development Genealogy
Even though the HWR-00 series was genuinely operated as the MkII by way of the MkI and MkIP, it was temporarily removed from the main current of arms development because of such things as problems with its operability. However, it was able to be completely rehabilitated by the VB-6 Konig Monster.

2008 AD*
The MkI No.1 craft had its roll out in 2008, and it was initially a specification that wasn't equipped with arm missile launchers. However, the developers received the ideas of the military authorities, who demanded increased firepower, and in September it was changed to the MkII specification.

2008 AD (during the Unification War)*
From the roll out schedule, the MkIP is seen as the first craft in the HWR-00 series. Even if one takes into account that only one craft was produced, it could be thought of as the prototype for collecting operating data.

2009 AD (during the First Interstellar War)*
[M] The type that was put into combat after the specification change from the MkI. A further improvement was attempted in firepower and range by exchanging the arms for missile launchers. And although they were operated as transportable gun batteries of the SDF-1 Macross and so on, the Monster didn't attain the main stream [of armament development].

2059 AD*
VB-6 Konig Monster
[F] Production took place as a Variable Bomber (VB) that took over the concept of the HWR-00 series at the beginning of the 2030's. Able to transform into the three forms of Shuttle, Heavy GERWALK, and Destroid, the VB-6 took an active part on the front line even in 2059.
