Oy. The One-Year War. Aka the original Mobile Suit Gundam, 0080, 08th MS Squad, "Rise from the Ashes", "Blue Destiny", etc. It's a period of time referring to any combat between 0079 and 0080 in the original Gundam Universe (UC Century).
It's the era closest to "Real Robot" in terms of overall technology in Gundam, even if they had to make exceptions (B-Parts...), as a result since the OYW flaunts Fledgling humanoid robot designs, the units had to move more slowly as they had not perfected the science of balancers to the point the units could move extremely quickly (excluding Mobile Armors in space).
