Technical and Historical Notes

 

The most powerful space warships of the One Year War (excluding the giant Dolos class), the Zeon Gwazine class battleships are more than a match for any Earth Federation Forces warship. With high-powered main weaponry that outclasses the Federation Forces Magellan class ships and a large integral complement of mobile suits, Gwazine class ships are typically reserved as command ships used by high-ranking flag officers. The sheer firepower and defensive abilities of the Gwazine ensure that they remain as the most powerful warships in the Earth Sphere for many years. During the One Year War, the Great Degwin serves as the personal flagship of Degwin Sodo Zabi, the head of the Principality. It is destroyed when his son Gihren fires the Solar Ray at the Federation Forces fleet. Another ship, the Gwaden, serves as the personal ship of Aiguille Delaz during the war and afterwards during Operation Stardust in UC 0083. In UC 0087, the AEUG discovers a derelict Gwazine floating through space, which is subsequently destroyed in battle with the Titans.
