Technical and Historical Notes

 

The HLV is a heavy lift vehicle used by the Principality of Zeon to transport troops, supplies and mobile suits during the One Year War. The HLV’s design allows it to safely re-enter Earth’s atmosphere, and it can be fitted with boosters for a return launch to space. In November UC 0079, retreating Zeon forces use many HLVs as they evacuate Earth following the victory of the Earth Federation Forces at the Battle of Odessa. The retreating HLVs become easy targets while floating helplessly in Earth orbit, and Zeon ships such as the Jotunheim are assigned with assisting the evacuees. In January UC 0080, the EFF’s White Dingo team attempts to stop an HLV launch at Australia’s Hughenden Base. In October UC 0083, Zeon remnants hiding in the Kimberlite mine in Africa use an HLV they’ve hidden since the end of the war to allow Anavel Gato to escape into space with the stolen RX-78GP02A Gundam GP02A Physalis.
