Cherubim's conception was mooted when the Eurasian Federation learned about its North Atlantic Federation's secret plan to develop a new class of assault ship. Due to the secrecy of North Atlantic's Federation project, its counterpart has no information regarding the design of the ship, and thus decided to use Nelson-class ship as a base design. Sukhoi-Gurevich Design Bureau, a very respected manufacturer whose prestige was overshadowed by Morgenroete, designed Cherubim. The name Cherubim was given to ship because it was to be Eurasian's own version of Archangel, not because it belongs to Archangel-class classification.

Initially, the ship was designed to be a heavy gunship, armed with heavy weaponry while having the capacity to carry a substantial amount of mobile suits or mobile armors. But, the designation was changed halfway because of two reasons. First, during the first between Naturals and Coordinators, ZAFT launched an attack on Alaska Base in Operation "Spitbreak". The Earth Alliance commanders at the base decided to use Cyclops system to destroy the invading army. Cyclops System's activation has wiped out almost 80 of ZAFT's forces stationed on Earth. However, the activation was carried out by those from North Atlantic Federation without informing their Eurasion Federation counterpart. Most of the security forces left at the base that were decimated by Cyclops were from Eurasion Federation. As a result, there was a political tension between the two. In order to prevent the rift forming between the two powerful coalition partners, Azrael Industries and North Atlantic Federation decided to share some technology secrets with Eurasian Federation.

Azrael Industries also gave away some parts from an incomplete Archangel-class ship, widely believed to be designated as Seraphim. The conglomerate, unaware of Eurasian's ongoing plan, thought that the "gifts" to compensate the loss of Eurasian Federation's force during operation "Spitbreak" would be of no use to the Federation because it couldn't do much with them. However, Sukhoi-Gurevich managed to adapt and fitted most of them to Cherubim whose construction had only started. In fact, one of the most important problems the engineers at the Bureau faced was the design of the linear catapult on the ship. The problem was solved by attaching the two linear catapults from Azrael Industries on its sides, at the midsection of the ship.

Another reason that influenced Cherubim's re-designation to special operation was Eurasian's success in stealing information on Mirage Colloid. After reverse engineering the technology, it managed to derive a better system. Named 'Shadow Dancer', it was decided to fit the experimental panels on the ship. An improvement over Mirage Colloid, it uses silicon polymer panels that contains the micro prisms in Mirage Colloid. However, it consumes large amount of energy when activated. This was solved in Cherubim by nuclear power generation. Its other drawbacks include Cherubim not being able to use many of its weaponry when the system is running, because the heat they will produce will damage it. The only weapons that can be used while in this mode of operation are those that can be launched via catapult. Since the panels will reflect all kind of wave radiation, active sensors such as radars are also unusable.

Compared to Mirage Colloid, the level of stealth achieved normally wouldn't achieve 100, with probability of detection increased to 50 when a ship or a mobile suit is about 1 kilometer from ship using the system. The size of the system and the storage needed for spare Shadow Dancer panels also made it impossible to fit Cherubim with any positron cannons like found on Archangel, Izumo-class battleship and Minerva. Despite that, the Shadow Dancer system made Cherubim a force to reckon with.

Overall, Cherubim looked like a bigger Nelson battleship, with linear catapults located at its sides and Archangel's weapons. To enable it to fly on while earth, it has delta wings, placed below the linear catapult. The flat part resembling whale teeth that can be found in front of all Nelson-class ship was also removed, while the 'nose' segment was slightly modified to have narrow bottom and wider top. Also, the cannon turret underneath the ship was removed. These modifications were made to enable the ship to move better while on water. It carries similar weapons to those found on Archangel, except for the 'Akula' and 'Stalin' it carries onboard.

The ship was finally completed a few days before Second Jachin Due Battle. Commandeered by the famed Igor Barzhakov, its maiden mission was to go to PLANT's Aprilius and destroy the capital with its four nuclear missiles. However, it went missing, presumably destroyed in battle. It was purportedly sighted in Siberian desert, but the sightings were unconfirmed. Further efforts to reproduce ships with similar capabilities or utilizing the Shadow Dancer stealth system were hampered when the hanger that produced Cherubim was destroyed in a freak explosion.

INDIVIDUAL WEAPON GLOSSARY

Akatsuki Beam Refraction System

Realizing that if war ever breaks out in the future, beam weaponry will be used extensively, ORB began to research on technologies to negate them. A fruitful result of these is the Akatsuki Beam Defraction System. It uses superheated ionized gas to produce a glowing field around a mobile suit it was equipped on. This glowing plasma field reacts with most radiation waves produced beam weaponry to refract them. As a result, the mobile suit is almost 'invincible' against such weaponry. However, the system could overload if the mobile suit is fired upon continuously; in hands of a capable pilot, this is an unlikely scenario. Also, Akatsuki couldn't protect against beam swords and knives as such weaponries have highly focused energy. The plasma system also has a secondary function which is to reduce drag force acting on the mobile suit in atmospheric flight, improving its overall agility.

AMREAD (Air Medium Ranged, Energy Armor Disrupter

A very special EMP missile, it is designed to disrupt any kind of protection utilizing energy barrier. That includes, but not limited to Phase Shift, Trans Phase and Variable Phase armor. It can also render Mirage Colloid and Shadow Dancer cloaking systems inoperable for a long time, making it a perfect weapon against ships that used the systems. But since the missile lacks maneuverability, it's more effective for static or slow moving target. The missile is developed after the Second Jachin Due battle when it is learned that ZAFT protected its weapon of mass destruction GENESIS with Mirage Colloid and Trans Phase armor.

AT-07 Gauss Hyper Velocity Rifle

Gauss rifle is designed earlier than Galvanon rifle. Derived from GAT-X103 Buster's combined rifle, it contained a very powerful magnetic coil that can spin and propel a 92.3 mm depleted uranium shell at high speed out of its barrel. Since the bullet is suspended in the middle of barrel by magnetic force, the rifle doesn't suffer much from recoil effect and wear to its barrel. It has a shorter range than its Galvanon counterpart, having an effective range of 20 kilometer. Despite that shortcoming, it can penetrate even the very strong armor like those found on Minerva and Archangel when fired from a 2 kilometer range.

AURORA(Autonomous Units Rapid Orbital Radiation Assimilators)

AURORA is an energy shield version of DRAGOON. Triangular in shape, it's effective when deployed in a group. An AURORA unit can provide protection from beams and projectiles for up to five minutes before needing to recharge. The units can also be combined in a group of five to form a shield strong enough to absorb a positron cannon beam. It is suggested that if the quantity of the units being used is large enough, the units can form a very large energy wall. However, like DRAGOON, a pilot with a very vast spatial awareness is needed to control them.

The first close interception weapon system to use beam based weaponry, Cougan Horn is lethal against mobile suits that got close enough, including those that are equipped with Phase Shift armor. Its only weakness compared to other systems that utilized machineguns is the low firing rate.

Dark Phase Stealth System

Dark Phase is actually jamming system that prevents enemy mobile suits from locking into it. Although it doesn't turn the mobile suit using it invisible like Mirage Colloid, it can be engaged for a long time. A mobile suit that is armed with this system will be dangerous to all but the most skillful pilots. This is because the only way to defeat such mobile suit is by manually targeting it.

Delimiter 360D Perception System

The system consists of two subsystems, the 360D Display systems and Neural Overclocker.

1) 360D Display system is designed because of it is decided that a pilot should always be able to access his available surrounding, including behind him. The pilot could accomplish that by turning the mobile suit, but that would be a waste pf time. Another alternative is for the cockpit to be designed to have screens all around the pilot, like the one found on X-1 Destroy. However, in a normal size mobile suit, it would be impractical and useless, because the cockpit would have to be larger than it's supposed to be. The 360D system solve this problem by putting a translucent display on the pilot's helmet, allowing the pilot to see more than one view at the same time. It also detects the movement of the head to indicate where the pilot wanted to see and show the correct view accordingly.

2) The Neural Overclocker is a computer is designed to monitor a pilot's brain and predicts what the pilot will be doing based on the brainwaves recorded. Thus, it will increase the accuracy and precision of the move being made, because the computer will recalculate what the system has predicted and what the pilot is really doing and adjusted the response accordingly. Nueral Overclocker also features feedback where the computer will help stimulate the pilot's brain so that he will be able to feel the changes being made and if needed, act accordingly. The use of this system allows a novice pilot to have a capability almost equal or more than a veteran pilot. However, due to the feedback, he will be more prone to hallucinations.

Galvanon Long Range Beam Rifle

The beam rifle is designed for very long range firing, capable of firing accurately at a target 100 kilometers away in space, well outside mobile suits' and some ships' radar range. Since the rifle has a bigger muzzle than a normal beam rifle and is more powerful, a direct hit on a mobile suit would almost guarantee its destruction. However, due to its power and increased range, the rifle needed a huge amount of power, something a normal battery powered mobile suit cannot provide. It also suffers from excessive heat generation and long recharging time. The heat problem is solved by using coolant cartridge similar to MPG-131. As for its long recharging time, it wouldn't be a problem as long the mobile suit firing the rifle quickly move after firing a shot to prevent enemies from pinpointing its location.

Highlander Energy Shield Generator

Highlander isn't any different from other energy shield generators fitted on mobile suit in shielding capacity. What makes it special is that the Phoenix Tail could be attached to a special port on it to enable the heat whip function to be used. Using Phoenix Tail in this configuration also allows the mobile suit the use of its two hands for combat.

Herausfordernd Engel Weapon Platform

Herausfordernd Engel is a very flexible weapon platform, able to be equipped with many kinds of ZAFT weapons. Subsequent revision allowed it to carry Earth Alliance and Orb's weaponry as well. It can also function as a shield, as its embedded positron deflector provided it with excellent protection properties. The built-in thrusters allow independent flight for a short duration.

Juxtaposed Energy Broadcast Assault Transmitter (JEBAT)

The normal approach to build super weapon for a ship is to equip it with one or two very powerful positron cannon. This approach has the unfortunate side effect of the very long firing cycle of such cannon. JEBAT circumvent such restriction by utilizing an array of battleship grade green beam cannons. The array consists of seven groups, with each group containing seven independently guided cannons, bringing the total to forty nine. Upon full charge, the weapon could fire twenty times, enough to destroy most small fleet.

MIPS (Multiple Interaction Processing System)

This is a very advanced computer developed by ORB engineers under the auspice of Nuzumi Yula Attha for use in newer mobile suits. The computer system utilizes a combination of visual image processing, thermal recognition and radar signature characterization to pinpoint an object and hence respond to it appropriately. While its initial intent was for peaceful purposes, such as making out landmarks in geographic survey or finding a person in a rescue mission, it was used, unmodified for ORB-00. The MIPS controls the mobile suit's CIWS to react against hostile missiles and projectiles, allowing its pilot to concentrate on more important matters.

MPG (Maschine Physik Gewehr) - 131 three-barrels beam machine gun

Developed by ZAFT because of Eurasian's Zastava Stigmate RFW-99 beam machine guns' success on battlefields, it has three rotating barrels to allow a higher rate of firing. Such weapons normally suffer from two problems, namely overheating and high power drain. It solves the first problem by incorporating a coolant tank inside the machine gun to cool the beam barrels and laser emitters. In space, the weapon also needs to be attached to a coolant magazine, with cartridges containing solid CO2 to help cool the system even more in absence of air. It's the second problem that caused MPG-131 to be dropped in favor of normal beam rifle found on ZAFT's mobile suits such as ZAKU and GOUF. Unlike Zastava, the weapon has no battery magazine, drawing its power from the mobile suit's battery. Two minutes of non stop firing would deplete almost 3/4 of a battery operated mobile suit's power reserve.

MPG (Maschine Physik Gewehr) - 5Z Beam Machine Gun

A compact version of MPG-131, it only has one beam barrel. However, its rate of firing is on par with MPG-131. It has two magazine intakes, one for power and one for coolant. This allows it to be used by battery operated mobile suits. A power cord also allows it to be connected directly to the mobile suit's power reserve, which makes it also suitable for nuclear powered mobile suits. Due to the compacted internal mechanism, it doesn't have a dampening mechanism that is as effective as the one on MPG-131. As a result the weapon has high recoil when firing. In order to fire accurately, the mobile suit must hold it with two hands.

Pathfinder long range laser targeting system

Its application is being utilized before Cosmic Era, the laser targeting system fell out of favor with the introduction of satellite-based pinpointing and other methods. However, with ZAFT dropping N-Jammers all over the world, blocking radio transmissions, Eurasian Federation modified some of their weaponry to work with laser targeting. The Pathfinder system consists of 16 laser pointers that can target up to 12 targets simultaneously in its 170 degrees sight

Phoenix Tail Heat Whip

At a first glance, the weapon looks like it is made from metallic feathers being joined together to form a long chain. When it's heated, it turns orange in color, hot enough to melt many kind of armor, including Phase Shift armor. Combined with its long range, the weapon is very dangerous.

RadeoForce multiple targets acquiring system

RadeoForce allows acquisition of up to 32 multiple targets simultaneously by the mobile suit that uses it. Although multiple targeting can also be done by systems on advanced mobile suits such as Freedom, Justice and Fallen, only RadeoForce has the capability guide missiles to their respective targets without further pilot intervention. This allows the pilot to concentrate on other tasks.

SAPPER (Single Attack Portable PEnetrator Rocket)

Although ORB has a small army size and had to depend on its technological edge to fight, it still invests on its army weaponry. SAPPER is a visually guided anti armor missile that can either be equipped with tandem charge High Explosive Anti Tank (HEAT) to defeat armor or High Explosive Squashed Head (HESH) warhead to blast through bunkers. Unlike other portable ATGM carried used by other army, SAPPER requires the use of a separate guidance designator, normally positioned away from the launcher. The guidance unit allows the missile to be guided either through visual, thermal or automatic guidance and can be changed during flight. SAPPER is only effective against land-based and low-flying mobile suits, although the use of CIWS on certain mobile suit models reduce it even more.

Shadow Dancer stealth cloaking

Shadow Dancer is an improvement over Mirage Colloid. Instead of using gaseous solution to deflect light, the system used a thin layer of silicon polymer imbedded with the micro prisms used in Mirage Colloid. The result was that anything that uses the system could remain unseen for a very long time. However, the system uses a lot of energy and beam based weapons cannot be used when the system was activated, as it would damage the system. Besides that, the silicon polymer could easily be damaged, affecting the ship's stealth ability.

Silent Scream Communication Jamming System

Silent Scream, carried by SGF-03 Merlin, is capable of disrupting any kind of airwaves communication. While laser-based communication can be utilized by most ships to communicate while under this kind of jamming, the difficulty in getting the lasers aligned correctly made the jamming quite adequate.

SIREN (Simultaneous Interception Robust Engagement Network)

SIREN, designed to be multi purpose attack platform for Fallen is designed loosely on the Providence's DRAGOON platform, under Patrick Zala's directive. Unlike Providence which is designed to be operational in space, Fallen's versatility is emphasized even when it is still a concept. Originally, SIREN was designed to be equipped with 16 DRAGOON pods. But because of the Junius Seven treaty, the construction was put on hold. When Terrence defected to Cherubim, he brought along the schematic for it. However, due to unavailability of certain parts that can only be found on PLANTS, it undergone numerous modifications. It comes in three configurations, alpha, beta and gamma; each module suited for particular battle field.

Starburst Energy Chaff dispenser

A unique counter measure combining the best of chaffs, flares and anti beam mines, Starburst system creates a field containing small and lightweight beam emitters. It is effective enough to stop many kinds of projectiles and weaken the strength of beam shots.

Storm Vogel Weapon Platform

Resembling like the ancient F-22 Raptor without a cockpit, Sturm Vogel provided the mobile suit it is equipped with superb aerial maneuverability in Earth atmosphere. It can also be fitted with numerous kinds of weapons, similar to its Herausfordernd Engel counterpart.

Tactical Razing Ammunition, Mass Propagation Land Expungers

This weapon is a very large scale cluster bomb, designed to be dropped from orbit to the target. Because the bomb will cover wide area, it's quite effective enough to replace carpet bombing. Once it enters the atmosphere, it will release payload of 2,000 independent munitions. Each one of them is potent enough to damage a normal mobile suit.

Zwiling Lanze pods

Developed earlier than the Super DRAGOON found on Strike Freedom, a Zwiling Lanze consisted of two elongated DRAGOON units being connected together. When it is joined to a AURORA unit, the whole thing resembles a gunbarrel like those found on Exxas. Besides being a recharge station for the Zwiling Lanze, the AURORA unit also provides protection to it. The Zwiling Lanze main weakness is that it has only two laser nozzles, one on each unit.
