Drone Fighter is a drone fighter that was first seen in the Macross Plus OVA.

DevelopmentEdit

These small and deadly unmanned fighters were used extensively by the United Nations Military, mostly as training craft. At some 10-12 meters in length, this small aircraft featured a retractable small-bore beam cannon under the front nose and could carry up to six high-maneuverability missiles upon the dorsal/ventral wing hardpoints.

Technology & Combat CharacteristicsEdit

Typically, the drone fighter was not outfitted with live ammunition and carried mostly unarmed missiles used specifically in combat exercises. The drone fighter required the use of specialized equipment to land and to transport into combat zones so these fighters were often dependent upon larger aircraft for proper deployment. A small boom mounted on the dorsal fuselage was used to mount the drone fighter under the wings of larger carrier craft, like the SB-10/10 Starwing Bomber, and thus carry the craft much like ordnance.
