The Lightliner is a mobile suit support vehicle developed by the Earth Federation Forces during the One Year War. With a design resembling a scaled up version of a hang glider, the Lightliner allows ground mobile suits to take to the air. The unit features a one-person cockpit on the top of the main body. The Lightliner is unarmed and thus relies on the mobile suit carrying it for defense. Yuji Alkana uses a Lightliner on several missions to give his RGM-79FP GM Striker flight capability.
