The Cargo Ship was a civilian transport spaceship with a similar design to the Earth Federation Forces’ Pizarro class. The ship’s bridge was located in the forward section, and multiple cargo containers could be strapped to the exterior of the middle section. In December UC 0079, the EFF’s 16th Autonomous Corps used three Cargo Ships to secretly transport supplies from Anaheim Electronics on the lunar city Von Braun. In UC 0083, the Delaz Fleet used a Cargo Ship to secretly travel to the Moon as part of their dealings with Anaheim. During the First Neo Zeon War in UC 0088, Neo Zeon used a Cargo Ship as bait to lure in the AEUG’s new flagship Nahel Argama. Several cargo containers were destroyed as part of the plan, which was to allow a disguised Haman Karn to infiltrate the AEUG ship by posing as a refugee escaping from Side 3. The ship also concealed two AMX-008 Ga-Zowmn suits that attacked the Nahel Argama as part of the plan.
