In March, C.E. 71, four transport aircrafts were used to transport the Zala Team and their Gundams to Carpentaria Base. On route, one of the aircrafts was intercepted by one of the Archangel's FX-550 Skygraspers, piloted by Cagalli Yula Athha during Second Equatorial Skirmish. Having taken damage, the aircraft was forced to release its cargo, the GAT-X303 Aegis Gundam and its pilot Athrun Zala. The aircraft was able to shoot down Cagalli's Skygrasper before it was destroyed.
