StoryEdit


In the fictional universe of Gundam Seed, the Aegis-class cruiser is an Orb Union trimaran naval warship that is 200 meters long and mounts a 250mm rapid-fire gun, along with multiple anti-air and anti-ship missiles. In addition, the ships have 3 small landing platforms, which can each carry a "Heli" VTOL fighter or an MBF-M1 Astray mobile suit. Despite the nation's small size, Orb possesses a large number of these warships, and has organized them into multiple defense fleets. The ships act as flagships for groups of smaller monohull Kura Okami-class destroyers. The Aegis class is named for the shield of the Greek god Zeus. It should not be confused for the similarly named GAT-X303 Aegis Gundam, a mobile suit developed by the Earth Alliance and stolen and deployed by ZAFT. The design of this ship appears to be heavily influenced and informed by the real-world United States Navy's Arleigh Burke and DD(X) class destroyers. </br>
