The Gwanban class was a battleship developed by the Axis Zeon as the successor to the Principality of Zeon’s Gwazine class. The Gwanban could carry 18 mobile suits and was armed with three mega particle cannons and six defensive turrets. In UC 0083, Yuri Hasler’s Gwanzan served as the flagship of an Axis fleet that supported the Delaz Fleet’s Operation Stardust by delivering the mobile armor AMX-002 Neue Ziel to Anavel Gato. In UC 0088, the Gwanban temporarily acted as Haman Karn’s flagship following the destruction of the Gwadan.
