Technical and Historical Notes

The Battle Pod was the frontline tactical pod used by the Mardook’s brainwashed Zentradi soldiers. The Battle Pod’s armaments included two large beam cannons, two beam cannon turrets and two mini-missile launchers that carried a total of 72 missiles. Based on its combat potential, the Battle Pod was ordinarily not a match for U.N. Spacy’s VF-2SS Valkyrie II. However, when compelled by Mardook Emulators, pilots carried out suicide attacks to destroy their enemies.
