The FF-4 Toriares is a fighter craft that appeared in the anime Mobile Suit Gundam.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

The Toriares is a space fighter developed by the Hervic Company. Although it is a space fighter, it is was also capable of operating in the atmosphere. At the beginning of the space age, the Earth Federation Forces began to develop fighter planes to be operated together with space battleships in order to expand their armaments in space. The Hervic Company would divide the operation into four categories and proceeded with each plan. This aircraft was completed as an small air defense fighter, and was deployed as the main force of the Earth Federation Space Force to the asteroid base Luna II and the garrisoned forces of each side. However, when the One Year War broke out in the year 0079 of the Universal Century, it was not ready for combat under the conditions of Minovsky particles, and it could not compete with the new mobile suits of the Principality of Zeon, which boasted more mobility than fighter planes, and it was shot down one after another. Later, the Earth Federation Forces also developed the RGM-79 GM mobile suit, and Toriares gave up its position as the main force to the GM.

Armaments

A pair of machine guns are built into the nose of the aircraft.

History

On December 27, 0078, the Earth Federation Forces' Toriares, piloted by Second Lieutenant Yuu Kajima and one other officer, was scouting the interior of a discarded colony when it encountered the Principality of Zeon's MS-06 Zaku II and was shot down before it could return fire. Miraculously, Yuu survived, and during the Battle of Loum in the early stages of the One Year War, he again boarded the Toriares, but was at the mercy of the Zaku II. Even a pilot of Yuu's caliber, who would go on to pilot a variety of mobile suits and achieve numerous battle results, was unable to compete with the Zaku II in the Toriares.
