SRF 71T/J Iconoclast
The IHE saw no real need for Mecha until after the SDF-3 left for
Tirol. After the experimentation in current mecha trends with the
Shock Divers and Crash Hounds, Dr. Gilles Vaudell decided that
one of two new mecha would be the definitive mecha for the Mordecai's
legions. The mecha in question were the SRF-71 Iconoclast
veritech and the Vautomer Jackal. After extensive tests, the
Iconoclast won out.
The mecha as designed along the
lines of the 20th Century SR-71 Blackbird reconaissence aircraft.
the fighter mode has slight cosmetic differences: It is wider,
and has a different nacelle layout. The mecha's transmode
sequence is based around the VF-1 Valkyrie Veritech rather than
any of the REF or Southern Cross Veritechs, and the Battloid mode
somewhat resembles a VF-1A Battloid. The mecha was produced ten
years after the Third Robotech War and production ceased
approximatley eight to ten years after that, with the
introduction of the SRF-5000.
The Iconoclast was to be Mordecai's
first line of defence, and thousands were produced in their ten
year service. The mecha were the spearhead of every battle the
IHE took part in in that time. They were phased out in the early
2050s as the Artificially intelligent SRF-5000 Iconoclasts became
available, but some are still in service with private
individuals, and as backup mecha.
The mecha was designed to be the ultimate in Veritech technology, harkening back to the more 'classic' VF-1 and VF-4 in payload and mission type. All Iconoclasts are painted Black,
with Red insignia markings.

- Depleting the M.D.C. of the
sensor head will knock out long-range communications
(reduce to 60 miles/96 km range), long-range radar
(reduce to 10 miles) and laser targeting (-1 to strike)
- Destroying a Wing will also
destroy the corresponding arm and one engine pod,
reducing speed by a quarter. Any dodge roll in
athmosphere will be at -4 due to difficulty to control
- Depleting the M.D.C. of the
main body will completely shut the mecha down.
NOTE: The SRF-71 Series
Veritech incorporates the Southern Cross' laser resistant ceramic
armor, so laser weapons do only HALF damage. This does NOT
include any other energy attacks such as particle beams or ion
blasts, nor does it help against explosives.

Four hard points are mounted on the mecha, two
under each wing. Each can carry one long range missile,
three medium range, five short range, or ten mini
missiles. To keep the fighter balanced, each wing must
have the same missiles mounted. (eg. you could mount two
mini missile pods, and two long range missile racks)
