In the fictional Gundam Universe, at the outbreak of the Second Neo-Zeon War in UC0093, the fleet under Char's command was almost exclusively composed of Musaka class vessels. Fast and agile, these ships served the Neo-Zeon cause well, seeing action in all major conflict in Char's Counterattack.
The Musaka itself seems to be based on the old Musai design of previous Zeon fleets. The Musaka's have ten thrusters, mounted on two rear fins, cooling fins to help improve fuel consumption, dual launch catapults for its Mobile Suit squads, and at least 12 secondary anti-aircraft gun mounted on the main body of the ship, beginning about midway down the ship and continuing to the aft. Unlike other designs, Musaka class's catapults are tilted at an angle.
The Neo-Zeon fleet was composed of eleven Musaka class vessels and Char's flagship, the Rewloola. These ships performed exceptionally well in the fight against the Federation's Londo Bell task force, but they lacked the fire power and numbers to be effective against the Federation as a whole. Those ships that survived the fight were ultimately scrapped when the Zeon rejoined the Federation in UC0099.
