In the post One Year War era of the Universal Century, the Axis Zeon's engineers were asked to come up with a replacement for the Gwazine class battleships, and the result was the Gwanban-class. This class served as the flagship for the Axis Zeon in Gundam 0083 and the first Neo Zeon movement in Zeta Gundam and ZZ Gundam. During the first Neo Zeon movement, Glemy Toto rebelled against Haman Karn and took the Gwanzan as his flagship. In the resulting battle, the Gwanzan was destroyed, which marked the beginning of the end for both Glemy's rebellion and Haman Karn's Neo Zeon movement.
