Anime & Mecha 1:100 Destroid Phalanx SDR-04-Mk. XII Space Defense Robot (Macross)

Zweiter Versuch, nach dem Reboot gestern. Es geht um dieses Gerät hier:


1:100 Macross - Destroid "(Missile) Phalanx" SDR-04-Mk. XII Space Defense Robot; "S-7 (s/n D-229-149) a.k.a. “Rabbit" of the U.N. Spacy Ground Forces; South Ataria Island, early 2010 (Bandai/Arii kit)

Some background:
After the space-worthy conversion of the CVS-101 Prometheus and the SLV-111 Daedalus carriers, these ships were docked with the SDF-1 Macross and it became clear that this new gigantic vessel required a specialized unit with a heavy armament for medium range defense. The resulting Space Defense Robot (SDR) Phalanx was tailored to this task. Development of the Phalanx began in a hurry, during the already ongoing Space War I in July 2009. Its systems and structural elements were, to save time and minimize development risks, taken over from a pre-war Destroid standard mass production model. The "Type 04" biped chassis from 2001 was common to several Destroid types, including the Tomahawk medium battle robot and the Defender anti-aircraft robot. The main frame from the waist down included a common module which consolidated the thermonuclear reactor and ambulatory OverTechnology system, and for the Phalanx it was combined with a new, jettisonable torso that was suited to space operations and could also act as a rescue capsule with modest independent propulsion. Thanks to this dedicated mission profile, the Phalanx was the best adapted Destroid to space operations, with the best zero-G maneuverability of any Destroid type during Space War I.

With this proven basis, the Phalanx quickly reached rollout in December of that year. Armed with dozens of missiles in two large launcher pods, the Phalanx made an excellent semi-mobile missile-based battery. On board of spaceships, the Phalanx also performed as a substitution deployment for the much more complex ADR-04-Mk X Destroid Defender, and it complemented this type with its longer-range guided missile weaponry. Minor Phalanx variants featured additional light close-range armament, such as a head-mounted gatling gun that replaced the original search light array, or more sophisticated sensor arrays. The latter led to the dedicated Mk. XIII version for space operations.

During the final battle of Space War I against the Zentraedi Bodol Zer Main Fleet, the Phalanx units, originally delivered in a sand-colored livery, were repainted in dark blue and refitted to fire long-range reaction warheads for use against space warships.  The Phalanx’ on board of SDF-1 had their finest hour when the SDF-1 Macross broke through the Zentraedi fleet defenses and entered the interior of the massive Fulbtzs Berrentzs command vessel: all the Phalanx units unleashed their missiles and aided in the swift destruction of the enemy flagship.

However, Phalanx production only reached limited numbers, due to the type’s high grade of specialization and its inherent vulnerability in close combat - the Phalanx’ combat operation capability decreases substantially once the missile ordnance had been exhausted. Beyond the initial production on Earth, roughly 20 more Phalanx Destroids were also built aboard the SDF-1 Macross shipboard factories, and many of these were later updated from the Mk. XII to the Mk. XIII standard. Post-Space War I, Phalanx Destroids were deployed as part of defense forces on various military bases and used in the ground attack role as long-range infantry support artillery units, fighting from the second line of battle. Nevertheless, the Phalanx remained a stopgap solution and was quickly followed by the more versatile Destroid "Nimrod" SDR-04-Mk. XIV.

Width 10.8 meters.
Mass: 47.2 metric tons

Powerplant:
1x Kranss-Maffai MT828 thermonuclear reactor, developing 2800 shp;
Auxillary Shinnakasu Industry CT 03 miniature thermonuclear generator, output rated at 970 kW.

Propulsion:
Biped, with limited zero-G maneuverability through many low-thrust vernier thrusters beneath multipurpose hooks/handles all over the hull.

Armament:

Production Notes:
Der eher obskure Destroid Phalanx gab sein Mediendebüt in Super Dimension Fortress Macross, Episode 27, und es ist tatsächlich die einzige Gelegenheit, bei der er auftaucht. Der ursprüngliche Mecha-Designer ist / war Miyatake Kazutaka.


Ein klassischer Destroid Phalanx aus Macross. Basis ist der alte Imai/Arii-Bausatz, in einem Bandai-Re-Boxing aus den Neunzigern, und kanonisch aufgebaut, weil mir noch ein "Ur"-Phalanx in der Destroid-Sammlung fehlte. Und weil die Bausatz-Halde kleiner werden muss...  :0  Im Kern wurde OOB gebaut, aber es gibt einige nicht sofort offensichtliche Updates "unter der Haube", die den antiken Mecha-Bausatz der ersten Generation durchaus verbessern.

Tolles Modell, schaut wirklich klasse aus. Und mal ein Thema, welches man nicht ganz so oft sieht. Immer nur Gundam oder Star Wars. :laugh:
