The vehicles flown in Robotech
were called Veritech Fighters and could transform into three configurations namely: fighter
, and battloid
. The first was pretty straightforward, with the characters flying some beautiful looking craft (I'm not sure, but they looked very similar to a chunky F-14
if I remember correctly). The battloid config was basically a fully extended mecha
(the intro sequence showed it off handsomely). The guardian configuration was most interesting to me, as it was a kind of half-and-half, with the legs and arms extending out the back and wings of the aircraft respectively, but the nose didn't fold out. In this config it glided around the city streets doing its deed. That's about the kewlest stuff I can remember. B)
By comparison, the Transformers looked like a bunch of pansies next to the Veritech Fighters.
