The MS Landing Ship was a mobile suit transport hovercraft used by the Principality of Zeon during the One Year War and by Zeon remnants afterward. Equipped with two powerful jet engines, the MS Landing Ship could transport a mobile suit over the water. It was armed with a machine gun on its nose for defense. In October UC 0083, Zeon ace Anavel Gato stole the RX-78GP02A Gundam GP02A Physalis from the Earth Federation Forces’ Torrington Base in Australia. After a march across the desert, Gato rendezvoused with a Komusai II to return to space. However, the Komusai II was destroyed just before launch by Kou Uraki’s RX-78GP01 Gundam GP01 Zephyranthes, forcing Gato to escape by sea instead. An MS Landing Ship transported Gato to a waiting Jukon class submarine.
