Technical and Historical Notes

The White Ark was a small combat ship used by the League Militaire in UC 0153. In normal operation, the ship’s mega particle cannon was docked in the forward section of the hull. In battle mode, the ship’s bridge retracted, similar to ships from the old Crossbone Vanguard. Because of its small size, the White Ark lacked an internal mobile suit hangar, but it could accommodate four externally docked suits. Due to this lack of a hangar, a pilot needed to wear a pilot suit to access a mobile suit from the pressurized areas. In addition to the mega particle cannon, the White Ark was also armed with a beam shield generator and missile launchers. The ship was capable of atmospheric reentry and unassisted flight under gravity, but it required a booster for a return trip to space. Following its introduction, the ship served as the mobile operating base for LM314V21 Victory 2 Gundam pilot Uso Ewin and his teammates, captained by former pilot Marbet Fingerhat.
