  • Description and History

    The enormous Super Heavy Soldier Vajra is an awesome spaceborne organism with a copper and amber colored carapace covered with strange gold-color patterns. The creature performs the role of a heavy combat unit typically guarding the area of a Vajra nest. This Vajra mounts upon it's back a Heavy Quantum Beam Cannon turret with three space-cruiser class guns. For defense, this massive vajra has a very strong bio-energy conversion armor that is much greater than even the Heavy Soldier Vajra. Like many other vajra, the Super Heavy Soldier is flight capable in the atmosphere by utilizing folding forewings and hindwings. Several hundred Super Heavy Soldiers exist in a vajra space battle group.

    NOTE: The green-colored Super Heavy Soldier is a vajra struck by the Implant Shell from the Macross Galaxy forces, who then used the implant network to control the vajra.
