Technology & Combat Characteristics
The Compton-class is the largest land battleship deployed by the ZAFT during the Second Alliance-PLANT War. It has high combat capabilities due to a variety of weaponry, and can also carry a large amount of mobile suits.

The Compton-class heavy land battleships are a new addition to ZAFT's ground battleships, they are fielded after the First Alliance-PLANT War. At least three Compton-class battleships are known to have been deployed on the Eurasian front. Two of these were destroyed by the GFAS-X1 Destroy Gundam during its rampage across central Eurasia, and a third, the Uhlenbeck, was involved in Operation Angel Down, a mission to eliminate the independent battleship Archangel. The Uhlenbeck later got reinforcements from the ZAFT flagship Minerva.
