Technical and Historical Notes

 

The massive Gwadan class battleship is used by the Axis Zeon during the Gryps Conflict in UC 0087. With its red paint scheme and external fuel tank, the Gwadan’s design resembles the Principality of Zeon’s old Gwazine class. At 600 meters long, the Gwadan matches the Titans’ equally large Dogosse Giar class. The vessels are armed with multiple main and secondary gun turrets. Its large hangar is believed to accommodate up to 100 mobile suits. The lead ship serves as Axis leader Haman Karn’s flagship for most of the Gryps Conflict, and ornately decorated halls within the ship highlight the position of Mineva Lao Zabi as the last heir to the old Principality. At least three Gwadan ships are constructed, with the original being destroyed by the Titans in January UC 0088.
