Technical and Historical Notes

The Battle Suit was a powered mecha used in the 2030s and 2040s in deep space by rogue Zentradi who were hostile to U.N. Spacy. The Battle Suit incorporated elements of earlier Zentradi powered suit designs such as the Queadluun-Rau and Nousjadeul-Ger. The Battle Suit’s armaments included two medium-bore cannons, a 3-barrel gun, two small-bore cannons, two large micro-missile launchers and a small micro-missile launcher. In early 2040, a U.N. Spacy VF-11B Thunderbolt squad encountered multiple Zentradi Battle Suits on assignment in deep space. VF-11B pilot Isamu Alva Dyson managed to destroy seven Battle Suits on his own, but his reckless piloting resulted in his reassignment to planet Eden to test pilot the YF-19 as part of Project Super Nova.
