The Dabude was a class of land battleship used by the Principality of Zeon during the One Year War in UC 0079. It served as both a mobile artillery platform and command center, similar to the Earth Federation Forces’ Big Tray class. The Dabude‘s main armament was a pair of powerful twin barrel cannons that required the use of four grounding braces to protect the craft from recoil. It was also armed with a pair of twin barrel machine guns mounted below the bridge. Dabudes were used throughout Earth, but were extensively deployed in Europe, with many fighting against the EFF’s Operation Odessa.
