The QF-2200D-B Ghost was an unmanned reconnaissance fighter used by the U.N. forces during and after the Unification Wars. It was a variant of the standard QF-2200D model and was equipped with a high thrust turbofan jet that proved to be unworkable for such a small aircraft. In 2008, the mechanics aboard the carrier Asuka II modified a QF-2200D-B to extend the range of Shin Kudo’s VF-0A Phoenix. Although they originally intended to only use the Ghost’s engine, the rushed nature of the job meant that they ended up modifying the entire craft. The combined fighter was designated as the Phoenix “Angel”.
