The SF-3A Lancer II was a space fighter manufactured by Lockhee for use by U.N. Spacy. This interceptor craft was deployed to ships like the ARMD class space carriers. Equipped with an OverTechnology reaction rocket engine, the Lancer was designed for high speed attacks. Its armaments included two Howard long-range charged particle beam cannons, as well as two Hughes anti-aircraft reaction missiles. Lancers were among the first U.N. Spacy craft to engage the Zentradi forces in space at the start of Space War I in February 2009.
