The H.L.V. appears in the Mobile Suit Gundam series.
A reusable vehicle designed to transport cargo between Earth and space. The HLV's streamlined shape allows it to survive atmospheric re-entry and, after being fitted with rocket boosters, it can then be launched back into orbit. During the One Year War, these vessels were used by the Principality of Zeon to land forces on Earth, to launch extracted mineral resources into space, and then finally to evacuate fleeing troops.
Notes & Trivia
- An HLV is actually a real-world term that stands for Heavy Lift Vehicle or Vessel.
