The Thoroughbred first saw service when it was launched from Jaburo in November of UC 0079. Assigned to the 16th Autonomous Corps it was launched as one of 4 decoy ships in order to guard the rear of the Earth Federation Forces main fleet. To accomplish this, the Thoroughbred was given two Gundams piloted by ace pilots Ford Romfellow and veteran Luce Kassel. Once in space the Thoroughbred was asked to intercept a Zeon supply route behind the Moon that leads to Space Fortress Solomon in preparation for "Operation Star One".

Throughout much of the rest of the war the ship spent its time attacking Zeon supply ships and reinforcements. After the Battle of A Baoa Qu in UC 0080 the Thoroughbred was used to escort Zeon prime minister Darcia Bakharov to Granada in order to hold the final peace negotiations aimed at ending the war. Although the ship was attacked by Principality of Zeon forces who were unwilling to let the war end, the Thoroughbred was able to hold it's ground and reach Granada safely.

In Mobile Suit Gundam: Battlefield Record U.C. 0081, the Thoroughbred is refit and assigned to Hugues Courand's special anti-Zeon remnant squad Phantom Sweep.


Notes & Trivia

  • In Episode 29 of Mobile Suit Gundam, a 40% complete ship identified as the third quasi-White Base class SCVA-74 in Mobile Suit Variations Collection 3, can be glimpsed. In the story, its parts are used to overhaul the White Base at Jaburo and further construction on the vessel halted. It is theorized that the ship would become the basis of the Thoroughbred's design for the sidestory videogame From Place Beyond the Blaze.
