Technical and Historical Notes

 

The main battleship of the Earth Federation Space Force, the Magellan class are heavily armed and armored, typically reserved for fleet commanders and other high-ranking officers. Like the Salamis class, the Magellan is a product of the Federation Forces' "70s Armament Reinforcement Plan." Both classes predate the introduction of mobile suits and thus lack the ability to carry them. However, like the rest of the fleet they are pressed into use as MS transports late in the One Year War, carrying RGM-79 GM and RB-79 Ball units into combat lashed to the outer hull. The Magellan is the most heavily armed of the One Year War era EFSF fleet, mounting seven twin mega particle cannon turrets, with numerous machine gun turrets and missile launchers. Even with this heavy armament, it's still outmatched by the Principality of Zeon's Gwazine battleships and Zanzibar cruisers, with their integral mobile suit complements. Magellan class ships carry a large re-entry capable shuttle on the ventral hull, similar to the Salamis class light cruisers. By UC 0083, an updated version is in use.
