In the fictional Gundam universe, the Chivvay class was a ship developed by the Zeon to help protect convoys and preform miscellaneous tasks. It was often used to serve as a flagship in a battle group. It is equiped with two triple barreled beam turrets, multiple twin barreled anti-air batteries and several missile launchers, but originally was not designed to carry mobile suits. However, its size was sufficient that its cargo bays could be, and usually were, easily converted to mobile suit hangers. A handful of these vessels were remade into Tivvay class cruisers, and some of the Chivvay class vessels were refitted for use by Zeon/Neo Zeon space atack commanders. The class proved itself usefull, but in the end the Zeon drive for ships with mobile suit capacity resulted in the discontinuation of the class.
