Technical and Historical Notes

During the One Year War in UC 0079, the Earth Federation Forces deployed the new Pegasus class assault carriers, which were designed to internally accommodate mobile suits and featured launch catapults. After the war, this design trend continued with the creation of the Alexandria class heavy cruiser, which had some ships under construction as early as UC 0083 following the Delaz Fleet’s Operation Stardust. The Alexandria class could accommodate 12 mobile suits and had four launch catapults on the top and bottom of its bow. Ships were armed with multiple beam cannons and defensive gun turrets. By UC 0087, the Alexandria class was exclusively in use with the Titans, including two refit versions, the Hario and Aswan. In February UC 0088, the original Alexandria, commanded by Gady Kinsey, was destroyed by the Gryps 2 colony laser in the final battle of the Gryps War. The Alexandria class was removed from service following the dissolution of the Titans, but decades after their mothballing, the League Militaire refitted the Gaunland and brought it back to active service in UC 0153.
