Technical and Historical Notes

 

The Corvette Booster is a mobile suit support vehicle developed by the Earth Federation Forces during the One Year War. The Corvette Booster allows ground mobile suits to take to the air, either by holding onto hand grips below the craft or standing on it as a sub-flight system. The Corvette Booster features a one-person cockpit located next to the mobile suit hand grips. The Corvette Booster is armed with a pair of vulcan guns, but it can also optionally mount two rocket launchers and four missiles. In August UC 0080, mobile suit pilot Bianca Carlyle uses a Corvette Booster to help defend the assault carrier Spartan when it comes under attack from the brainwashed forces of the breakaway South Seas Alliance.
