  • Zentrādi Foot Soldiers In The Unified Forces

    Full size Zentrādi within the Unified Forces still wear their traditional Zentrādi Armour, with only the slight cosmetic difference of the Zentrādi badge being replaced with that of the Unified Forces symbol. This armour is worn by both Zentrādi Mobile Weapon pilots, and full size ground soldiers.

    Zentrādi soldiers still use their standard issue Zentrādi Laser Pistol. However, instead of the standard Zentrādi rifle, they use the standard Variable Fighter Gunpod for that era. As of 2045, Zentrādi/Unified Forces Soldiers are using the VF-11C's Gunpod.

    Zentrādi Armour

    Zentrādi Armoured Spacesuit

    The commander model that was mainly used in hand-to-hand combat in the armoured corps. The 6th kind was prepared under the supposition that it would be worn during times of great combat where there was the possibility of being shot. The 2-1 kind is a somewhat lightweight type for the crew of the Battle Pods. - Macross Perfect Memory Pg 133

    ZentradiArmourHeavy1 (51K) ZentradiArmourHeavy2 (55K) The entire body is covered by a protector [suit]. A face guard is attached to the helmet, and has a style that gives one an impression of the European knights from the Middle Ages.
    What is carried on the back is a life-support system.
    The helmet guard flips up.
    - TIA: Macross First Vol. Pg 69

    When going into combat, Zentrādi Mobile Weapon pilots will usually opt for the bulkier Heavy Armour, due to the added protection it gives them; in addition to the armour of their Mobile Weapon. The Heavy Armour's helmet has a pull down section to protect the vulnerable face plate from damage - something that is vital in the vacuum of space.

    When on the ground, they can use a large shield, which is about 15 m (50 ft) tall, and closely resembles a Roman Legionnaires shield.

    Zentrādi General Spacesuit

    An ordinary spacesuit. It isn't used in combat. - TIA: Macross First Vol. Pg. 69

    After the Stellar Empire Spliting War, it was one of the standard spacesuits that was generally worn the most. The eighth kind is soldier's equipment for the crew of space military vessels during hostilities. The 3-7 kind was mainly worn by the operators in the gun turrets. (from Mr. Miyatake's setting) - Macross Perfect Memory Pg 133

    The Light Armour is the armour variant most commonly worn by Zentrādi Mobile Weapons pilots in their vehicles and on board ships. It is a light armour designed for minimal protection and allowing maximum flexibility.

    When on the ground, they can use a large shield, which is about 15 m (50 ft) tall, and closely resembles a Roman Legionnaires shield.



    Meltrandi Flight Suit/Light Armour

    The Light Armour is worn by Meltrandi Mobile Weapons pilots in their vehicles and on board ships. It is a light armour designed for minimal protection and allowing maximum flexibility.


    Meltrandi Flight Suit

    Worn by Zentradi female power armor and fighter pod pilots. The Meltrandi flight suit is not meant to be worn as combat armor. Rather the flight suit is designed to provide environmental protection for the wearer in space-based operations.

    Hand Held Weapons

    Zentrādi Beam Rifle "Assault Rifle"

    The standard Zentrādi Assault Rifle is very similar to conventional human assault rifles. The biggest differences are the aesthetic looks, and that the Zentrādi Assault Rifle fires beams. The rifle uses exchangeable clips of ammunition.


    (Movie) Zentrādi Beam Rifle / Meltrandi General Soldier Beam Rifle

    The main differences between the (TV) Zentrādi Beam Rifle is that the rifles are smaller, designed to be fired single handedly, and don't appear to have exchangeable clips. - DYRL Data Bank. Pg 333


    Zentrādi Beam Pistol

    The pistols are generally the reserve of Zentrādi Officers, but can be used by anyone, especially where a Beam Rifle would be too bulky. The light Armoured Spacesuit has a hip holster built into the suit's utility belt.
    Refer to the Zentrādi General Spacesuit above for an image of the weapon holstered on the right hip.


    Zentrādi Short Range Electron Beam Rifle


    ZentradiShotgun (11K)
