Technical and Historical Notes

 

The Mongoose is created in the UC 0050s to serve as a heavy ground support aircraft for the Earth Federation Forces. Though designed for a tank-busting role, the use of a large cannon as opposed to guided weapons limits the Mongoose to engaging slow-moving or stationary ground targets, and during the One Year War it takes heavy losses against the Principality of Zeon's MS-06F Zaku II and HT-01B Magella Attack forces. Much of the technology used in this outdated aircraft dates from the previous century, further handicapping it in the age of mobile suit warfare and Minovsky particles.
