The Callisto-class is a Zanscare Empire cruiser that appears in Mobile Suit Victory Gundam anime series.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

An innovative ship, the Callisto-class cruiser features symmetrical design in both the horizontal and vertical axis, with the bridge and catapult on top and beneath it. Without "above" or "below", the Callisto's crews can respond to attack equally in space combat.

This new design also reintroduces the sub-bridge, which is a feature seen in the 74-years old Magellan-class but was abandoned due to a lack of effectiveness at the times.

Armaments

  • 2-barrel Mega Particle Cannon
The Callisto-class is equipped with two 2-barrel mega particle cannons. These cannons are located on the lateral sides of the ship, in front of sub-bridges and over the lateral catapults.
  • Multi-Launcher
The Callisto is equipped with four missile launchers which are used to launch anti-mobile suit and anti-ship missiles. Each of these missiles can also fire five smaller missiles to create a more effective fire barrage and stop the advance of enemy mobile suits.

History

The Callisto-class was a mainline ship used by the Zanscare Empire during the Zanscare War. One of the common models fielded by the Zanscare Navy, the Callisto-class served as the mainstay mobile suits carrier and was usually deployed when the light and poorly armed Sinope-class was insufficient to deal with the threat.

Despite being a reliable, modern and innovative design, this class did not performed particularly well against the older ships of both the League Militaire and Earth Federation Forces, usually relying on sheer number to push back the enemy. Still, its performance was roughly on par with the Salamis Kai-class and Clop-class.
