Description and History

This small car possibly classified as subcompact is one of many varied types of personal vehicle driven by the citizens of City 7 to wherever they may need to go. As with many vehicles in the 37th long-distance colonization fleet, this car can utilize flight thrusters built into sides of all four tires and the underside of the vehicle to allow maneuvering in a vacuum. An enclosed life support system protects the occupants during these trips into space. This particular vehicle was designed to handle tight turns really well. Akiko Hojo drove this type of subcompact car to conduct her business as owner of the music label under which the band Fire Bomber published their music (Macross Chronicle 2E Macross 7 Mechanic Sheet 03B).
