- Two 2-barrel secondary gun turrets are mounted on the ventral aft of the ship, one under each of its main thrusters.
- Missile Launchers
- The Lombardia-class is equipped with a few missile launchers for long range attacks.
The Lombardia-class of ship was created by and used by the Titans organization during the latter days of the Gryps Conflict, designed for testing of prototype mobile suits. As far it is known, only one ship of this class was ever made, the Lombardia, named after the ship class.
