The main battleship of the Earth Federation Space Force, the Magellan class were heavily armed and armored, typically reserved for fleet commanders and other high-ranking officers. Like the Salamis class, the Magellan was a product of the EFF’s 70s Armament Reinforcement Plan. Both classes predated the introduction of mobile suits and thus lack the ability to carry them. However, like the rest of the fleet they were pressed into use as MS transports late in the One Year War, carrying units into combat lashed to the outer hull. The Magellan was the most heavily armed of the One Year War era EFSF fleet, mounting multiple mega particle cannon turrets, with numerous machine gun turrets and missile launchers.
