The Garencieres is a space freighter used by the “Sleeves” faction of Neo Zeon. The ship bears the Rivacona Cargo name on its hull to disguise its military function. The Garencieres is capable of atmospheric entry and flying unassisted under Earth’s gravity. The ship is unarmed and depends upon its four mobile suits for defense. In UC 0096, the Garencieres’ crew, led by Capt. Suberoa Zinnerman, helps instigate the Laplace Incident by initiating secret negotiations with the Vist Foundation on the Industrial 7 Colony. The ship participates in multiple battles against Londo Bell and enters Earth’s atmosphere. The ship travels from Africa to Australia and later conducts a rescue operation for Mineva Zabi by attacking the transport plane Garuda. The ship’s engine output falls while it attempts to escape the atmosphere, so Banagher Links uses the power of the RX-0 Unicorn Gundam’s psychoframe to help pull it into orbit. Later, the ship is set to self-destruct after Neo Zeon occupies the Londo Bell ship Nahel Argama.
