The Muspelheim is a Jotunheim-class ship used by the Principality of Zeon during the One Year War. It appears in the OVA series Mobile Suit Gundam MS IGLOO: Apocalypse 0079.
Technology & Combat Characteristics
The Muspelheim 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 Muspelheim mounts its single mega particle cannon on its bow.
- Dual Machine Gun
- To supplement the aforementioned mega particle cannon, the Muspelheim carries four pairs of dual machine guns on its bow, starboard, and port, making a total of eight guns.
The Muspelheim, along with its sister ship, the Jotunheim, are used to test out new mobile suits and weapons produced by the Principality during the One Year War. The Muspelheim is sunk by an Earth Federation Salamis-class cruiser while conducting operations in high Earth orbit.
