Technical and Historical Notes

 

The small aircraft known as the Dish served multiple functions for the Earth Federation Forces, including EWAC (Early Warning And Control), EW (Electronic Warfare) and transport. The large radome that made up the central portion of the Dish's fuselage served as powerful long range radar, although its effectiveness was greatly reduced by the advent of the Minovsky particle scattering system. Dish aircraft often assisted in long-range target identification, increasing the effectiveness of EFF troop deployment. Gen. Revil, commander of the EFF in the One Year War, used a Dish to fly to Belfast, Ireland, in late UC 0079 to inspect the Newtype crew of the White Base carrier. Since Dish aircraft weren't designed for combat, they were armed with only a small machine gun for defense.
