Technical and Historical Notes

 

Built on the same basic design as its Apsaras predecessor, Ginias Sahalin's Apsaras II features a perfected Minovsky craft system that is much more stable in atmospheric flight. It also incorporates an extremely powerful mega particle cannon, capable of blasting through thick layers of rock. Once again piloted by Ginias' sister Aina Sahalin, the Apsaras II soon begins test flights in Zeon's testing grounds in Southeast Asia. When word of the test flights reaches the Earth Federation Forces, the 08th MS Team is dispatched to investigate and capture or disable the new mobile weapon. The 08th Team soon finds their quarry, and the Apsaras II is heavily damaged during the battle and is forced to crash-land in the Himalaya mountains on November 9, UC 0079. Aina survives and destroys the Apsaras II to keep it from falling into Federation hands. Soon after that, salvaged parts from the Apsaras II and the original Apsaras are used to build the final the Apsaras III.
