Technical and Historical Notes

 

The Gunboat was a medium-scale combat vessel used by the Meltrandi forces. It was armed with many guided beam cannons, small maneuverable warship weapons and missile launchers. Near the end of Space War I, the Meltrandi dispatched a Gunboat to Earth to destroy the Macross. The Gunboat used its main gun to destroy the Macross' main gun and caused the ship to crash onto the ancient Protoculture city Altira. It then folded away when the main Zentradi fleet appeared, taking with it VF-1S Valkyrie pilot Maximilian Jenius, who was trapped on the ship after a duel with Milia Fallyna's Queadluun-Rau. Many Gunboats were part of the Meltrandi main fleet that de-folded over Earth to fight the Zentradi at the end of Space War I. After Space War I, Gunboats were used in rogue Meltrandi fleets that sometimes encountered U.N. Spacy in combat.
