Technical and Historical Notes

The Irish class was a space battleship initially manufactured by Anaheim Electronics for the AEUG. It featured a larger mobile suit carrying capacity than the modified Salamis class that formed the backbone of the AEUG fleet, but was also smaller than the Argama class. Armaments included multiple beam gun turrets. The most high profile Irish class ship during the Gryps War of UC 0087 was the Radish, captained by Henken Bekkener. The Radish frequently operated in concert with the flagship Argama, but was destroyed in the conflict’s final battle in February UC 0088. The AEUG, having been devastated by losses suffered during the conflict, fielded no Irish ships during the First Neo Zeon War of UC 0088-0089. However, more ships were produced after the AEUG was reabsorbed into the Earth Federation Forces, with some remaining in service as late as UC 0120.
