Technical and Historical Notes

The Samson was a mobile suit transport truck used by the Principality of Zeon on Earth during the One Year War in UC 0079. The Samson had a carrying capacity of one mobile suit. The truck’s cab, called the Samson Top, could detach and function as an attack hovercraft armed with a pair of 2-barrel machine guns.
