The Armored Vehicle is a type of ground weapon appeared in Mobile Suit Gundam: The 08th MS Team OVA. It was fielded by the Principality of Zeon in Universal Century and saw service up until at least U.C. 0079.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

The Armored Vehicle featured a Machine Cannon on a wheeled platform. It was created by the Zeon Military Force as a support unit for its infantry during Zeon's Earth Invasion in U.C. 0079.


  • Machine Cannon
Mounted on top of the wheeled platform, the Machine Cannon possessed a high rate of fire. Primarily used to ward off advancing enemies, shoot down missiles or other fast moving targets, it was also useful as an anti-aircraft or anti-personnel weapon. The Machine Cannon however had a hard time piercing heavy armor and thus were not often used against larger, more heavily armored foes.
  • Machine Gun
A small calibre machine gun was mounted in front of Armored Vehicle's left side. It was used primarily used to attack advancing infantry and smaller targets.
  • 4-tube Missile Launcher
The Armored Vehicle could be equipped with a total of twelve 4-tube Missile Launchers, which could be bundled into a two-by-three array and installed on both sides of its Machine Cannon turret. The missiles could be launched at elevated angles for long-range bombardment. They could be fired individually, or all of them could be launched at once to inflict serious damage to an area.

Special Equipment and Features

  • Smoke Discharger
The smoke discharger is a defensive feature used to visually blind the opponent while their sensors are jammed by Minovsky Particles. This allows the Armored Vehicle an opportunity to escape or to ambush the enemy.


The Armored Vehicle had seen services at Zeon's military base in Southeast Asia, as well as other frontlines on Earth.
