Technical and Historical Notes

 

A product of Gihren Zabi's quest for the ultimate war-winning super weapon, the Dolos class is the largest dedicated mobile suit carrier ever built. With the capacity to carry an unprecedented 182 mobile suits, the Dolos can carry almost an entire corps within its vast hull. However, like many of Gihren's super weapons, the Dolos has flaws, the most principle of which is the lack of adequate launching facilities for its massive mobile suit complement. With only seven catapults, deploying the entire mobile suit complement can take more than 20 minutes. At least three of these massive ships are built starting in December UC 0078, and two are destroyed by the Earth Federation Forces during the final battle of the One Year War at the asteroid base A Baoa Qu. A third, submerged under the Earth's oceans, acts as a base for Zeon remnants in UC 0080.
