Technology & Combat CharacteristicsEdit
The largest conventional Zentradi warship seen in Space War I, a Nupetiet-Vergnitzs Class vessel was the lead warship of the Golg Boddole Zer Main Fleet's 67th Glruimual class branch Britai (Adoclass) Fleet.
A medium-scale fleet command battleship, the original design for this class of vessel was completed during development competitions in the early years of the Schism War. Over four kilometers in length, these ships are bristling with numerous weapon emplacements and carry a large complement of Zentradi mecha.
Special Equipment & FeaturesEdit

- Each Nupetiet-Vergnitzs-class Fleet Command Battleship has a small-scale storehouse where infantry firearms and spare ammunition are stored. One microphone and one communication device are installed in the corner of each of these storehouses.
On February 7, 2009, the launch day of the SDF-1 Macross, Vrlitwhai Kridanik folded his Nupetiet-Vergnitzs-class Fleet Command Battleship into orbit above Earth and was followed by the rest of his fleet.
After the Picket Patrol Ships Vrlitwhai sent on a reconnaissance mission were destroyed by the main cannon of the SDF-1 Macross, he ordered the units under his command into a striking position and so his Nupetiet-Vergnitzs-class Fleet Command Battleship, accompanied by a Thuverl-Salan-class Battleship, moved into a lower orbit. The Nupetiet-Vergnitzs-class first saw action in Space War I when Vrlitwhai fired his vessel's guided beam canons upon the U.N. Spacy's ARMD-01 and ARMD-02 Space Carriers because they had used Large Missiles (utilizing Reaction Weaponry) to destroy a Thuverl-Salan-class Battleship. Two series of shots resulted in ARMD-01 being put out of commission while ARMD-02 sustained minor damage. (SDFM: "Boobytrap")
The first wave they sent was in fact a decoy. As part of the second wave, a soldier messaged Vrlitwhai's Nupetiet-Vergnitzs-class Fleet Command Battleship to inform him that the Regult platoons had made landfall. Vrlitwhai then ordered all ships to prepare for barrage and to provide support for the ground units, they obeyed and deployed their guided beam cannons. Soon, beams rained down on South Ataria Island, destroying many buildings and killing many humans.(SDFM: "Countdown")
