In the fictional Gundam universe, the SCV-70 (LMSD-71) "White Base" was a "Pegasus"-class assault carrier deployed by the Earth Federation during the One Year War. Despite being eventually sunk in the final battle, she was the most legendary warship throughout the war.

Through the first part of One Year War, the "White Base"'s registration name was unknown to the Zeon forces, so they referred to her by the codename "Trojan Horse" due to the ship's winged sphinx-like shape.

hip History

Design of Victory

At the outbreak of the One Year War, the Dreadnought-oriented Earth Federation Space Forces was caught completely by surprise when the Principality of Zeon deployed the agile mobile suits against their fleets. The Federation military quickly realized that they would also need mobile suits if they were to have any chance of victory, and instituted the famed Project V in order to develop a mass-production mobile suit design. The EFSF also realized that their existing line of warships lacked mobile suit transport and support capacity, and thus desperately in need of designs capable of mobile warfare. A new revolutionary warship class exclusively designed for MS combat and support was born — the "Pegasus" class. One of the first "Pegasus" class ship to enter service was the "White Base".

ide 7 incident

Launched in September UC 0079, the "White Base" was immediately sent to retrieve the Federation's new mobile suit prototypes from Side 7's secret research facility for field-testing. In the middle of this mission, the ship unexpectedly found herself tailed by a Zeon special combat unit led by Char Aznable. When the Zeon forces launched surprise attack on the colony, heavy casualties were inflicted among both the colony's civilian population and "White Base"'s regular personnels. In the middle of the battle, civilian Amuro Ray activated the RX-78-2 Gundam unit in sheer desperation and repulsed the Zeon attack. The surviving crew and the civilian refugees then boarded the "White Base" and went on a long journey to plagued by Zeon hostilities.

The "White Base" first landed at Luna II, home of the remaining Earth Federal Space Force fleet, where she was promptly seized by the base commander, who proceeded to interrogate the crew, militia and civilian survivors on board. In the middle of this interrogation, Char, searching for the "White Base", led an infiltration attack on Luna II by mining the port entrance. "White Base" managed to escape from Luna II, and sailed next for Earth under the command of a young Bright Noa.

Journey to Jaburo

Upon making contact with the Federation's Earth Forces under the command of General Revil, the "White Base" was drawn into a battle in the ruins of Seattle, in which they shot down a Zeon "Gaw" heavy carrier containing Garma Zabi (who was maneuvered into an ambush by Char).

The "White Base" then proceeded to meet up with Revil's forces that were assembling for Operation Odessa. Along the trek through Asia, the "White Base" was hunted by a Zeon special forces unit under the command of Ramba Ral. Eventually meeting up with the Federation forces, the "White Base" participated in Operation Odessa, helping to break the back of the Zeon forces on Earth. "White Base" then restocked and refueled in Belfast before traveling across the Atlantic Ocean to Jaburo.

"White Base" arrived and docked at Jaburo, the Federation's main base and mobile suit manufacturing facility located underground in South America; Unfortunately, they ended up leading Char's "Mad Angler" unit to Jaburo, at which point he attempted an infiltration, which was repelled.

Horse of Legend

Following the failed Zeon raid on Jaburo, the "White Base" was re-launched into space, re-designated the 13th Autonomous Mobile Squadron, and sent to Side 6 in a diversionary move aimed at drawing off Zeon forces from Solomon — in another word, to serve as a decoy. This mission would solidify the fame of "White Base" as Zeon's worst nightmare, as this single ship managed to surprise everyone by repeatedly knocking out heavyweight Zeon fleet commanders. Additionally, the unrivalled performance of Amuro Ray earned the ship crew the nickname "Newtype Corps". With much of Zeon's attention being fixed on hunting down the "White Base", the EFSF gained crucial strategic time to complete the deployment of its new Vinson Plan space armada, together with their new RGM-79 GM mass-fielded. After eliminating the Conscon Fleet, the "White Base" rendezvoused with the remaining ships in the Space force, and participated in the Battle of Solomon and in the Battle of A Baoa Qu.

During the battle at A Baoa Qu, the "White Base" became a rally point for the surviving ships in Admiral Revil's fleet after Gihren Zabi unleashed the Solar Ray, a gigantic colony laser. Assisted by other ships, "White Base" spearheaded an assault against one of A Baoa Qu's S defensive lines. During the battle, "White Base" sustained critical damage and was forced to crash-land into a space port of the asteroid stronghold, and immediately became a hotspot for hostile assaults. The grounded "White Base" was eventually destroyed from intense enemy attacks, although its entire surviving crew evacuated the ship in time.
