Technical and Historical Notes

The SV-51γ was a limited production variant of the Anti-U.N.’s SV-51α that was specially tuned for use by ace pilots. Its armaments were the same as the standard model SV-51α, except for mounting an extra 12.7mm mini-gun. In September 2008, Anti-U.N. ace pilots D.D. Ivanov and Nora Polyansky used SV-51γ fighters with custom paint schemes as they fought U.N. Spacy for control of a Protoculture relic in the South Pacific island of Mayan.
