The Jotunheim is a prototype supply ship that first appeared in the OVA Mobile Suit Gundam MS IGLOO: The Hidden One Year War and Mobile Suit Gundam MS IGLOO: Apocalypse 0079.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

The Jotunheim is a converted civilian ship that has been transformed by the Principality of Zeon into an experimental support ship. It is lightly armed, with its weapons consisting of a single mega particle cannon and four dual machine guns.


  • Mega Particle Cannon
The standard weapon of warships, a mega particle cannon fires a focused beam of massive, high-velocity mega-particles, which cannot be deflected by magnetic fields and tears through any conventional armor material. The Jotunheim mounts its single mega particle cannon on its bow.
  • Dual Machine Gun
To supplement the aforementioned mega particle cannon, the Jotunheim carries four pairs of dual machine guns on its bow, starboard, and port, making a total of eight guns.


The Jotunheim, along with its sister ship, the Muspelheim, are used to test out new mobile suits and weapons produced by the Principality during the One Year War.


Notes & Trivia

  • It's named after Jötunheimr from Norse Mythoogy.
  • The Jotunheim-class appears to be loosely based on the Earth Federation's Columbus-class transport ships in design.
