The Big Tray was a class of land battleship used by the Earth Federation Forces during the One Year War. It functioned as both a mobile artillery platform and command center, similar to the Principality of Zeon’s Dabude class. The Big Tray was propelled by hover engines and armed with a pair of main cannons and three secondary guns. The deployment of the Big Tray preceded the introduction of mobile suits, so the vessels lacked any carrying capacity for them. The Big Tray class was widely deployed throughout Europe, along with a related type, the Heavy Fork class.
