Space Defense Robot-04-Mk.XII Destroid Phalanx is an anti-air destroid mecha, first seen in the Super Dimension Fortress Macross television series.

DevelopmentEdit

The Space Defense Robot (SDR) Phalanx Mk XII was hurriedly developed during SDF-1 Macross' year-long maiden voyage for fleet defense of the CVS-101 Prometheus and the SLV-111 Daedalus after they had been converted for space use. The SDR-04-MK XII was designed specifically for space to defend the SDF-1 Macross, along with its sister unit, the ADR-04-Mk.X Destroid Defender. Development of the SDR-04-MK XII occurred in July 2009 and the rollout was in December of that year.

Technology and Combat CharacteristicsEdit

The newly designed body for the Phalanx was hastily built by combining replacement/repair parts for the MBR-04-Mk.VI Destroid Tomahawk (already loaded onboard the SLV-111 Daedalus) with a simple upper body core structure that neglected any silliness for a weapon composition consisting of missiles, radar, and propulsion system mounted on the main rotating body.

Utilizing a simple structure that depended upon a thermonuclear power system and a simplified targeting and delivery system for guided armaments, the Phalanx specialized in close defense and space operations. Due to the simple design of the SDR-04-Mk XII, this destroid could be mass-produced inside the SDF-1 Macross and perform as a substitution deployment for the much more complex ADR-04-Mk X Destroid Defender.

The Phalanx utilizes the MBR-04 ambulatory system and because of that, it shares a common hip and leg structure with both the MBR-04-Mk VI Destroid Tomahawk and Defender. The SDR-04-Mk XII does suffer from the disadvantage of a shorter drive when it utilizes the thermonuclear propulsion nozzles. Also, the Phalanx combat operation capability decreases substantially once the missile ordnance is exhausted. A model equipped with gatling guns mounted within the head exists (as well as other variations) but the large majority of the Phalanx units are equipped with missiles.
