Technology & Combat Characteristics
During development of OverTechnology gained via research of the fallen Alien Space Ship-1 (ASS-1), the United Nations Government decided to attempt incorporating early discoveries into existing human technology. Destroids and variable fighters were still several years away from being realized so the new technologies developed by the OTEC research institute would be used to build a fighter called the F203 Dragon II.
Built as a delta wing aircraft with OverTechnology, the F203 was stronger, faster and more efficient than previous fighter aircraft. The craft was much more maneuverable than conventional fighter aircraft and was light despite equipment for V/STOL capabilities. Roy Focker flew an F203 during his service as a fighter pilot in the United Nations Wars. The fighter boasted high-maneuverability using two-dimensional thrust vectoring and VTOL nozzles.

The F203 began design only a year and a half after the establishment of OTEC and was formally adopted as the main fighter of the United Nations Military in 2003. Roy Focker's personal variant was colored differently.
