Design Notes:

The Swan utilized a pair of large solid rockets to achieve orbit.


The Swan was a short-range military transport shuttle developed after the end of the Second Robotech War to replace those lost in the battles. These shuttles were used to launch the Southern Cross forces against the invading Invid. Most of the Swans were lost in this engagement.
