Technical and Historical Notes

 

ZAFT's transport ship Eternal is designed to exclusively support two mobile suits: the ZGMF-X09A Justice Gundam and ZGMF-X10A Freedom Gundam. In addition to serving as a home base for these two suits, the Eternal also carries their METEOR mobile weapons platforms. The Eternal has an internal hangar and linear launch catapult for both Gundams, while the METEOR units are docked on the outer hull at the ship's forward end. As a support ship, the Eternal is armed with a beam cannon, CIWS turrets and many missile launchers. However, when docked the METEOR units can function as gun turrets to increase the Eternal's firepower. On July 1, C.E. 71, the Eternal is stolen by Lacus Clyne and her supporters, including former North African commander Andrew Waltfeld. The rogue ship then joins with the rebel Earth Alliance ship Archangel and the Orb Union ship Kusanagi to create the Three Ships Alliance, a new faction independent of both the Alliance and ZAFT that is dedicated to ending the war. In the years following the Bloody Valentine War, the Eternal is hidden inside the factory satellite Terminal, which is camouflaged as a large asteroid. After the fall of the Atlantic Federation's headquarters Heavens Base in Iceland, the Eternal is discovered by ZAFT when the ship's crew investigates the abandoned Mendel colony for information about Supreme Council Chairman Gilbert Durandal.
