The Chivvay-class Heavy Cruiser is a heavy space cruiser class that appears in Mobile Suit Gundam.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

The Chivvay-class high speed heavy cruiser was a ship developed by Zeon to protect convoys and carry out various tasks, and often served as a flagship. It was equipped with two triple-barreled beam turrets, numerous twin-barreled anti-aircraft batteries, and several missile launchers, but was not designed to carry mobile suits (MS). Despite this, its cargo bays could be easily converted to MS hangers if needed.

Armaments

  • 3-barrel Main Gun Turret
The primary weapons of the Chivvay-class is a pair of three barrel mega particle gun turrets. These high-powered energy weapons have a long range and a heavy punch ideal for penetrating through thick armor. In MS IGLOO, the number of turrets is increased to three.
  • 2-barrel Machine Gun Turret
The secondary weapons of the Chivvay-class 18 dual machine guns. These weapons serve primarily as an anti-air defense.
  • Missile Launcher

Special Equipment & Features

  • External Fuel Tanks

History

The Chivvay-class heavy cruiser was introduced by the Principality of Zeon the very same year the Earth Federation began its "Armament Reinforcement Plan" (UC 0070), long before the Principality began its production of mobile suits. It was originally designed to be a battleship. However, 3 months after its introduction, Earth Federation Forces introduced the Mega particle equipped Magellan-class and the new Salamis-class, both of which have beam cannons as their main guns. This placed the Chivay-class in a difficult position since despite its design purpose as a main battleship, it lacked the fire power of beam weaponry.

It was later refitted with mega particle cannons due to the Space Attack forces need for ships with enough fire power to match and surpass Earth Federation ships, and the Chivvay-class was still quite suitable for combat due to its strong armor. Also, Zeon lacked the resources and money to develop a new battleship due to the expensive Gwazine-class. The Chivvay-class is a mobile ship and has enough fire power and armor to serve as flagship while newly classified as a high speed heavy cruiser. When Zeon finally introduced mobile suits into its combat forces it became top priority to focus its military complex on battleships that could carry and supply mobile suits. As such, Zeon began production on the Musai-class light cruisers, Gwazine-class battleships, and finally the Zanzibar-class cruiser, while the remaining Chivvay-class cruisers' cargo bays were re-purposed into mobile suit hanger bays.

A handful of these vessels were remade into Tivvay-class high speed heavy cruisers, which removed all of its missile launchers and Machine gun turrets, was equipped with two parallel catapults, enlarged the mobile suit hangar, and installed larger propulsion system. A handful of Chivvay-class vessels were even refitted for use by Zeon's space commanders. Some even equipped with a third 3-barrel Mega Particle Cannon turret at the bottom of the ship to increase its fire power and cover its lower area.

After the One Year War, the restored Republic of Zeon was allowed to maintain its independence and a defense force, so long as they agreed to follow certain guidelines set by the Federation, including random inspections. In light of this the Republic of Zeon chose to redesign the Chivvay-class from the ground up, culminating in the Chivvay Kai-class.
