Technical and Historical Notes

 

The Garuda class is a stratospheric mobile suit transport plane constructed by the Earth Federation Forces as part of its "Garuda Initiative." Six Garudas are assigned to Earth's air defense zones to act as an emergency preparedness initiative for mobile suit deployment. The massive plane's design bears a similarity to the Principality of Zeon's Gaw planes from the One Year War. The Garuda class can carry up to 20 mobile suits, as well as multiple sub-flight systems. The Garuda class is lightly armed with 10 laser gun turrets and thus relies on the mobile suits it carries for its primary defense. In May UC 0087, the AEUG and Karaba launch a large scale on the Titans' Jaburo base in South America. However, the Titans have planted a nuclear bomb on the base to dispose of their enemies. After AEUG forces escape by stealing the Audhumla, the Titans give chase in the Sudori. Initially captained by Buran Blutarch, the plane is later commanded by Ben Wooder following Buran's death in combat. The Sudori is destroyed after Karaba launches an attack to seize the plane's shuttle booster and send RX-178 Gundam Mk-II pilot Kamille Bidan back to space.
