As the Zanscare Empire continued to spread its tyrannical military and political power throughout the Earth Sphere, their forces launched an invasion and occupation of Earth to make way for their religious radical true believers. With the Earth Federation slowly collapsing into political and military insignificance, the only hope for freedom lay with the underground resistance organization known as the League Militaire. In UC 0153, the League Militaire launched its Victory Project from their Kolin factory near Eastern Europe’s Point Kasarelia (in the former Czech Republic), its goal being to design and mass produce advanced new mobile suits to counter the Zanscare threat. Their flagship mobile suit was the LM312V04 Victory Gundam, named after the legendary Earth Federation Forces mobile suits of its heyday, and serving as a symbol of freedom for the League Militaire forces. Built around a Core Fighter base, the Victory Gundam could separate into a Top Fighter and Bottom Fighter, each of which could be docked with a Core Fighter or operated via remote control from another Core Fighter. This modular/docking design not only increased the chances of pilot survivability, thus allowing a pilot to continue fighting if part of his mobile suit was damaged or destroyed, but also allowed for replacement of destroyed Top Fighter or Bottom Fighter modules mid-battle if the need arises.

The Victory Gundam was also the first mobile suit to feature the Minovsky flight system, a miniaturized Minovsky craft system designed to keep the mobile suit floating in mid-air at any altitude while it maneuvered with its rocket and vernier thrusters. This system was much more efficient and made for greater combat flexibility than the Zanscare mobile suits’ beam rotor system, and the Minovsky flight technology later served as the basis for the successor LM314V21 Victory 2 Gundam‘s much more advanced Minovsky drive. In addition to the standard model Victory Gundam, the League Militaire also created a commander variant, the LM312V06 Victory Gundam Hexa.
