Re-Entry Pods (大型降下ポッド Ōgata Kōka Poddo) are trans-atmospheric transports featured in the Super Dimension Fortress Macross television series.[1]

Technology & Combat Characteristics

Re-Entry Pods are large pods used for transportation, serving as landing boats. Besides storing combat equipped Regults and their pilots, each Re-Entry Pod can be equipped with ammunition and a complete set of accessories for the Regult. A Re-Entry Pod can be operated regardless of being inside or outside of the atmosphere.[2] A Re-Entry Pod usually stores between 20 to 25 Regults.[3]

Each Re-Entry Pod has a length of 94.8 m, a height of 35.5 m and a mass of 1720 metric tons. In addition to the gravity control engines, each Pod is equipped with fourteen underside boosters that run along the circumference of the body as well as many Vernier Thrusters.[3]

Four landing legs are installed in the body of a Re-Entry Pod. When a Pod is descending, the landing legs are transformed. Even though they look thin, they are durable enough to support the craft, even when it is fully loaded.[3] The mechanism for deploying the legs involve first extending and rotating the legs then splitting the "feet" then rotating the "feet" so the flat side is on the bottom.[1]


Space War I

On February 7, 2009, after Vrlitwhai Kridanik saw the disorganization of the primitive species that somehow possessed legendary reaction weapons and managed to restore a downed Supervision Army Vessel, a Zentradi soldier informed him that the Gnerl Fighter Pods had pinpointed their targets and were launching.

After the Gnerl Fighter pods left the Quiltra-Queleual-class Landing Ship Tank, the Re-Entry Pods were also launched from there. The Re-Entry Pods carried many Regults, Regult Heavy Missile Carriers, Regult Tactical Scouts and Regult Light Missile Carriers through Earth's atmosphere to South Ataria Island.
