Technical and Historical Notes

The Tractor Trailer Type Shuttle was a civilian cargo transport used in the Macross 7 emigrant fleet. The shuttle’s design resembled a tractor trailer truck, but it was airtight and capable of operating both inside City 7 and in space along the Milky Road that linked ships in the fleet. In early 2045, Ray Lovelock rented a Tractor Trailer Type Shuttle to transport Fire Bomber to a concert on the Three-Star factory ship. Basara Nekki’s VF-19 Excalibur Custom was stowed in the trailer, which later proved a prudent decision due to a Varauta attack on the Three-Star.
