Technical and Historical Notes

 

Following the defeat of the Principality of Zeon in the One Year War, many mobile suit design plans are seized by the Earth Federation Forces, with some of them refined and put into production for themselves. One of these designs is the MS-17 Galbaldy α, which the Federation revises and produces as the RMS-117 Galbaldy-β. The Galbaldy-β is built for efficiency, with trimmed-down armor as well as improved mobility. Although intended to operate as a localized combat unit, the Galbaldy-β is actually equal to the all-purpose RMS-106 Hi-Zack in terms of performance. However, the fact that the Galbaldy-β is fitted with weaker, older-style titanium alloy armor makes it far less durable in combat. Most of the Galbaldy-βs built are stationed at Luna II or on Federation Forces ships operating out of Luna II. Prior to the start of the Gryps Conflict, the Titans create a booster-equipped variant, the Galbaldy-β High Mobility Unit.
