The Gwadan-class is a fictional class of battleship from the Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam anime series.
Technology & Combat Characteristics
The last of battleships bearing the vestige of the Principality of Zeon's Gwazine class, the Gwadan class also sports a crimson hull and gigantic external tanks near the stern. One of the major upgrades over the Gwazine class is the provision of Mobile Suit catapults, in particular the Mobile Suit launcher in the bottom hull that can project Mobile Suits in any angle of its 270-degree fore sweep. With grand halls catered for Zabi family members (in effect Mineva Zabi), the Gwadan class was designed to serve as flagship of the entire Axis fleet.

The Gwadan class is one of the largest of all warships ever constructed in the Universal Century era, with unsurpassed firepower and Mobile Suit capacity. Its primary guns pack enough power to decimate the thermonuclear engines of the super structure, Colony Laser. Although few details are known about this vessel class, its cavernous MS hangar is thought to hold up to 100 Mobile Suits. Such capabilities allow Haman Karn's forces to operate the vessel like a mobile fortress and command center for the entire fleet.
