The Dried Fish was a Papua class supply ship used by the Principality of Zeon’s Living Dead Battalion, a unit made up of amputees. The Dried Fish served as the testing ground for the Reuse P Device, and advanced mobile suit control system developed by Karla Mitchum and J.J. Sexton. The Dried Fish was assigned to the Thunderbolt Sector in the ruins of Side 4. In late December UC 0079, the Dried Fish was captured by the survivors of the Moore Brotherhood’s Beehive, although the ship was subsequently destroyed due to the heavy damage it incurred in battle.
