    Description and History

    The CVS-101 Prometheus was an open-type hangar deck aircraft carrier designed to serve as an amphibious launching craft for the VF-1 Valkyrie fighters. The Prometheus - along with the SLV-111 Daedalus - were present during the desparate space fold escape of the SDF-1 Macross in February 2009. Upon reaching Pluto, the Prometheus was docked with the port side of the SDF-1 Macross where the design of the Prometheus contributed greatly to the quick deployment of the Valkyrie fighters. During the remainder of Space War I the Prometheus and its complement of Valkyries played an important role in both the offensive and defensive operations of the SDF-1 Macross.
