The fictional Vosgulov-class submarine is a ZAFT naval mobile suit carrier submarine, which gave the ZAFT forces based on Earth the complete control of the seas. Though it is armed with anti-air missiles and torpedos, its main weapons are the mobile suits it carries. Typically, its 3 vertical linear catapults are used to launch AMF-101 DINN aerial combat mobile suits, and the four underwater catapults (which function like oversize torpedo tubes) can each launch two UMF-4A GOOhN or UMF-5 ZnO amphibious mobile suits.
During the Earth Alliance ship Archangel's journey to JOSH-A, the Earth Alliance HQ, one such submarine, under the command of Marco Morassim , attacked the EA ship several times before being destroyed. Another Vosgulov-class, the Cousteau, was assigned to the Zala team as its base of operation during its pursuit of the Archangel. During ZAFT's Operation Spit Break, many Vosgulov-class submarines were deployed from ZAFT's Carpentaria base to Alsaka for the assault on JOSH-A. In CE 73, the Vosgulov-class Nyiragongo was assigned to escort the Minerva in its attack on Suez.
