The Troy Horse was a Pegasus class assault carrier constructed by the Earth Federation Forces in UC 0079. Like other ships of its class, it was constructed from multiple blocks, including living quarters that feature an artificial gravity area. Differences in construction resulted in some Pegasus ships having radically different appearances. The Troy Horse also utilized a Minovsky craft system, which allowed it to fly at low altitudes on Earth and escape unassisted from the planet’s atmosphere. In November UC 0083, the Troy Horse and its sister ship Gray Phantom participated in the EFF’s naval review at Confeito. Much of the fleet was either destroyed or severely damaged when Zeon ace pilot Anavel Gato attacked with a nuclear warhead from the stolen RX-78GP02A Gundam GP02A Physalis. Although the Gray Phantom survived the attack, the fate of the Troy Horse was unknown.
