Technical and Historical Notes

 

The Eight-Wheeled Armored Vehicle is an Armored Personnel Carrier (APC) developed by the Republic of Zeon. The vehicle is covered in thick armor and can transport eight passengers over rough terrain. The vehicle is armed with a cupola-mounted machine gun. The APC is also used for training by students at the Space Defense Military Academy at Side 3’s Guardian Colony. The APC is part of the equipment used by Char Aznable and Garma Zabi when they instigate an uprising and attack the nearby Earth Federation Forces barracks. The successful uprising is later known as the Dawn Rebellion.
