The Zalam-Euba Alliance is a successor to the Zalam Union and the Euba Alliance, two major forces that fought for supremacy in the Earth sphere during the Colony Nation War.

History

According to the novelization, the Zalam Union called for autonomy with a small government, while the Euba Alliance advocated managerialism with a large government. As former national factions, they have prevented outside intervention, and they openly possess battle-ready mobile suits and space battleships, and while taking care of the damage to facilities and urban areas within the colonies, they have spent their time fighting without regard for the well-being of the general public. In response to the UE's invasion of Fardain, the two sides fight together and make peace for the first time in hundreds of years. In the A.G. 140s, when the Earth Federation government began to adopt earth-centered policies, the faction began to secretly cooperate with anti-federation forces.

Technology

The mobile suits of the Zalam-Euba Alliance are procured by subcontracting production to the Madorna Workshop, based on data provided by Yark Dole (Geera Zoi). Both sides' machines are older models used in past wars, and have an appearance very similar to the battle mobile suits used by the Zalam Union and the Euba Alliance in the Colony Nation War, with a monocular head camera. Their basic performance exceeds that of the mass-produced machines of the Earth Federation Forces, with the Zalam side's machine excelling in power and the Euba side's in mobility. However, since they are mainly armed with projectile and heat weaponry, they are nearly useless in front of the armor of a Vagan mobile suit. Before the Battle of Ambat, the armaments of Elmeda, Xeno, and Zila are changed to DODS guns and beam sabers, allowing them to compete with the Vagans in terms of offense.
