Technical and Historical Notes

 

One of the Principality of Zeon's first ships, the Papua class transport ship remains the mainstay of the Zeon logistical fleet for many years until the introduction of the Pazock class. The Papua class ships see service throughout the One Year War, supplying ships on the front lines independently. These Papuas often carry a small defensive/work contingent of Gattle space fighters and sometimes a MS-05B Zaku I mobile suit for loading and defense. One such Papua is captained by veteran soldier Gadem during the One Year War. In September UC 0079, Gadem is sent to resupply Char Aznable's Musai after the first encounter with the Federation Forces' "Project V" mobile suits, and both Gadem and his Papua go down in battle against the Federation's superior mobile suits.
