The ARMD class ships were space carriers constructed by OTEC Company for use by U.N. Spacy. The ARMD class implemented OverTechnology systems such as a gravity control system, reaction heat pile system and reaction weaponry. The ARMD ships were designed to carry many variable fighters and other spacecraft, such as the SF-3A Lancer II or QF-3000E Ghost. The ARMD’s weapons included multiple beam cannons and anti-ship and anti-aircraft missile launchers. During the opening battle of Space War I in February 2009, the Macross launched into space and attempted to dock with ARMD-01 and ARMD-02, but both carriers were destroyed in combat with the Zentradi. Six additional ARMD ships were constructed, and the original two were rebuilt and permanently docked with the refit Macross as of 2012. More than a decade later, the role of the ARMD class was inherited by the newer Guantanamo class stealth combat carrier.
