During the One Year War, the Salamis class cruiser was one of the mainstays of the Earth Federation Forces fleet. However, as part of the 70s Armament Reinforcement Plan, it predated the creation of mobile suits and thus featured no dedicated storage space. After the war, many ships were refitted to the Salamis modified configuration, which featured a mobile suit launch deck and a hangar capable of storing up to four suits. During the Gryps War, the Salamis modified was commonly used by the regular EFF, the Titans and the AEUG resistance group. The Salamis modified remained in service with the EFF for many decades to come and was in use as late as UC 0153 during the Zanscare War.
