(*) Terran designation. The Tirolian designers considered the sensors part of the design and did not assign separate designations for these systems.

VII. Armament:

VIII. Armor:

The armor of the Raditzs Regult is composed of an advanced titanium-steel alloy. The armor stops all small arms and heavy infantry weapons fire, and provides excellent resistance to light mecha-mounted weaponry, such as the Zentraedi 22.3mm HE autocannon round, and reasonable to good resistance to medium mecha-mounted weaponry, such as the Valkyrie's 55mm APFSDS round.

The Raditzs Regult provides full protection from nuclear, biological, and chemical hazards, using a fully enclosed cockpit environment. The internal consumables supplies can provide atmosphere for ten days maximum.

IX. Development:

The Raditzs Regult is an unique development of the Zentraedi Regult battle pod. The Raditzs is designed not to accomodate one large Zentraedi warrior, but three human-sized Tirolians, and to enable these to command deployed Zentraedi forces without drawing fire from enemy elements, especially those on head-hunter missions. This mission was unique to the Tirolian Border Fleets, which had Zentraedi forces under direct command of Tirolian Triumvirate clones.

Before the development of the Raditzs Regult, the Triumvirates had to command their forces either from the rear or from Sestralian Bioroid mecha. In the latter case, opposing forces could simply identify and target the commanders. The Raditzs Regult, which was externally undistinguishable from standard Regult pods, could not be so easilly identified. In addition, the Raditzs mounted improved defenses with its upgraded pulse lasers, and had better armor and mobility.

Finally, the Raditzs Regult was one of the few Zentraedi mecha to be equipped with an escape pod. In the case of this mecha, the legs could serve as a launch platform for the entire upper body, which was fitted with large reaction mass tankage and a large and powerful thruster, sufficient to lift the upper half of the battle pod into low-to-medium orbit.

The Raditzs was issued to all Border Fleet vessels from 1842 onwards, and served satisfactorilly until the end of the Tirolian Mercantile Empire. The existance of this mecha was unknown to the RDF until 2010, when Zentraedi defectors lead UN Spacy intelligence officers to a cache of two of these mecha in a rarely visited corner of the SDF-1 Macross, where they had been stored unbeknownst to the RDF from before a time the crash of the vessel on Earth in 1999.
