Technical and Historical Notes

 

The advent of the mobile suit in the One Year War changed the rules for space combat. With their smaller size and higher mobility, mobile suits were capable of single-handedly destroying a battleship. After the war, the Earth Federation Forces upgraded its aging Magellan class, which entered service prior to the creation of mobile suits. To bolster anti-mobile suit defenses, the upgraded Magellans replaced their machine gun turrets with laser turrets. In November UC 0083, multiple modified Magellans were destroyed when Anavel Gato fired a nuclear warhead at the EFF’s naval review at Confeito. Surviving ships chased after the remnant Zeon Delaz Fleet when it conducted a colonyjack. Due to the Magellan’s continued poor performance in the era of mobile suit combat, the entire class was retired by UC 0087 in favor of the upgraded Salamis type.
