The VB-6 König Monster is a variable bomber that first appeared in Macross VF-X2 and later in the Macross Frontier television series. It was piloted by S.M.S. pilot Canaria Berstein during the Vajra War and Aegis Focker.

DevelopmentEdit

The VB-6 König Monster is a large-scale variable bomber with overwhelming firepower developed from the HWR-00 Monster destroid deployed in Space War I. Design of the VB-6 was initially advanced by a combined design team from both Northrom and Grumman in 2030. As time went on collaboration began with Shinnakasu (designer of the HWR-00-Mk II Monster) and design chief Dr. König Tiegel. It was Shinnakasu and Dr. Tiegel that were responsible for solving various problems with the deterioration of the fuselage strength that accompanied the installation of the variable mechanism into the craft.

By 2032, the VB-6 König Monster accomplished its maiden flight and the start of mass production. Many completed craft were deployed to special forces and in 2040 three VB-6 units (one machine was a spare for parts) were delivered to Strategic Military Services (S.M.S.) in the Macross Frontier fleet. By 2059, the VB-6 belonging to S.M.S. featured various upgrades from the original specifications and had participated actively on the front lines of the Vajra War.

Technology & Combat CharacteristicsEdit

Like the HWR-00 upon which it is designed, the role of the VB-6 König Monster is to field heavy weapons and artillery. Though the VB-6 is a versatile variable craft with heavy armoring and high defensive capabilities, the König is a very heavy craft that is restricted in movement. The powerful offensive payload of the VB-6 is most successfully utilized strategically when supported by other variable fighters.

The S.M.S.-specification VB-6 König Monster has improved mobility attained by a change in the armor material. This change has lightened the craft as well as provided a small increase in atmospheric speed. In addition to these changes the S.M.S. Type VB-6 has greater projectile resistance than the mass-produced König Monster owing to a change of armor to the same enhanced energy conversion armor/light-composite armor system used in the VF-25 Messiah armor pack. A final defensive modification to the S.M.S.-Type VB-6 is the installation of a pin-point barrier system.

ArmamentsEdit

StandardEdit

  • Shinnakasu/Vigors 320 mm rail guns
  • Raytheon/Shinnakasu 3-barrel Anti-Ground Anti-Ship Heavy Missile Launchers
  • High-Speed Anti-Air Anti-Ground Close-Range Small High-Maneuverability Missile Launchers

HistoryEdit

In 2051, Captain Aegis Focker of the VF-X Ravens was assigned a VB-6 König Monster in an urban combat sortie against Vindirance terrorist forces.

Notes & TriviaEdit

  • In her time piloting this unit, Canaria never utilized the Destroid mode, only the Bomber for mobility and the Gerwalk for assault.
