Technical and Historical Notes

 

Following the infamous Colony 30 incident in UC 0085, the Anti-Earth Union Group was formed in response to the cruelty of the Titans. This rebel group needed a flagship and mobile suits, and the carrier Argama became the symbol of the AEUG. Secretly constructed at the refugee colony Sweetwater with funding from Anaheim Electronics, the Argama's design was loosely based on the legendary White Base from the One Year War. This new design could hold more mobile suits and was equipped with two mega particle guns as its main armament. The ship was also equipped with two gravity blocks that could rotate around the ship to generate artificial gravity. The Argama was first deployed in March UC 0087 to steal the prototype RX-178 Gundam Mk-II from the Titans. With this first mission, the Gryps Conflict was set into motion. The Argama was first assigned to Henken Bekkener, but he eventually transferred to the Radish after Bright Noa assumed command of the Argama in May UC 0087. As the AEUG's flagship, the Argama participates in every major operation, from the failed attack on Jaburo to providing cover fire for Karaba's attack on Mount Kilimanjaro in late UC 0087.

 

When the Axis Zeon entered the scene late in the war, the Argama was the first ship to make contact with Haman Karn. As the Gryps Conflict came to its bloody end, the Argama was involved in Operation Maelstrom and successfully captured the Gryps 2 colony laser. After the Gryps Conflict ended in February UC 0088 with the destruction of the Titans, the battered Argama was the only AEUG ship still in service. The damaged ship limped off to Side 1's Shangri-La Colony for repairs and was forced to hide from Neo Zeon commander Mashymre Cello and his battleship Endra. Following the escape from Shangri-La, the Argama docked at La Vie En Rose for repairs and was upgraded with a new hyper mega particle cannon in April UC 0088. After failing to destroy Axis with this powerful new weapon, the Argama followed Haman down to Earth, but was too late to prevent her from occupying the Earth Federation capital at Dakar. Afterwards, the Argama proceeded to Dublin and helped evacuate citizens when the Neo Zeon dropped a space colony on the city. The crew of the Argama was forced to leave their damaged vessel on Earth for use by the Karaba in November UC 0088. However, when they arrived in space, a new vessel was waiting for them: the Nahel Argama.
