Technical and Historical Notes

 

The Kerguelen is a Zanzibar class mobile cruiser used by the Principality of Zeon during the One Year War. Like other ships of its class, the Kerguelen is capable of atmospheric re-entry and unassisted flight on Earth with its powerful rocket thrusters. A booster attachment allows the ship to launch into orbit and return to space. In UC 0079, the Kerguelen is stationed at a secret Zeon mountain base in Southeast Asia, where it’s used to power Ginias Sahalin’s mobile armor research facility. In November UC 0079, the Earth Federation Forces discover the base’s location and begin their siege. Ginias’ sister (and Apsaras III) copilot Aina helps push through a temporary cease fire to allow wounded soldiers to evacuate on the Kerguelen. However, Ginias violates the cease fire in his madness, and the EFF responds by having an RGM-79(G) GM Sniper shoot down the Kerguelen, resulting in a loss of all hands.
