Technical and Historical Notes

 

The introduction of the Earth Federation Forces' Salamis class cruiser predates the development of mobile suits. As a result, during the One Year War many RGM-79 GM units are strapped directly to the outer hulls of Salamis ships. In September UC 0079, the EFF base at Luna II begins the process of converting some Salamis ships into the newly designated Nelson class light carriers. A similar process sees Magellan class ships converted into the new Trafalgar class. The Nelson class features cargo bays on the port and starboard sides of the ship. Its armaments include six mega particle cannons, four twin machine guns and eight missile launchers. The conversion process is delayed due to accidents and attacks on the supply fleets transporting the necessary materials. As a result, the first Nelson class ship is not completed until February UC 0080. The initial ship is assigned as a mobile suit training ship. Two additional ships are later completed, and the planned conversion of eight additional Salamis ships is restarted.
