The final version of the Musai class light cruiser in the One Year War saw an extensive change in hull design, coupled with all the combat experienced with the standard Musai class cruiser. Still retaining the two high-powered mega particle cannons of the late-war Musai, the engines were upgraded to give additional speed. The mobile suit launching and maintenance facilities were improved to accommodate the late-war MS-09R-2 Rick Dom II and MS-06FZ Zaku II FZ high performance mobile suits. Out of the small number produced, at least two ships were assigned to the special forces unit based at Granada, which saw combat at Side 6 in late December UC 0079.
