The Missile Car was an armoured car produced by the Earth Federation.
When the Principality of Zeon deployed mobile suits during the One Year War, the Earth Federation did not have any mass-produced mobile suits. It had to rely on conventional weapons against the more advanced mobile suits. The Missile Car was one such vehicle.
The Missile Car was an armoured car used to take out enemy mobile suits. It was armed with an eight-tube wire-guided missile launcher mounted in the rear. The wire-guided missiles meant that the Missile Car had liimted firing range, but it had greater accuracy and could be used in situations with limited line-of-sight.
At least two crew were required to operate the buggy, a navigator and a gunner.
