Description:
-Robotech: This is basically the standard Tactical Battle Pod, with twin missile launchers mounted on top instead of the anti-aircraft lasers.  The additional weight and awkwardness of the missile launchers slows the maximum speed of the Battle Pod by about 50%.  Generally, one out of every dozen Tactical Battle Pods is a light artillery unit.  Of course, exact numbers vary with each combat situation.
   The Missile Launchers can fire any type of SHORT RANGED missile.  Since the Zentraedi are concerned only with victory/destruction, usually high explosive, plasma or other destructive type are used.  The missile pods are mounted on a pivot that can rotate side to side, up and down, within a 180 degree arc (-2D to hit).
-Macross: The Reguld, being the Zentradi Army's main combat mecha, was designed to be equipped with many optional weapons to increase effectiveness and adapt to different mission requirements. One of these variants of the standard Reguld is the Light Missile Carrier. Sacrificing the aft-mounted anti-aircraft laser cannons, the Light Missile Carrier features two missile launchers on a single mount. Each of the two launchers features twelve guided missiles for use in close combat. The missiles utilized can vary significantly from single warheads to energy beam "flechette" missiles. Optimizing the weapons payload, the Light Missile Carrier has the option of firing single warheads, rapid succession payloads or burst groups of two-to-four missiles. Though primarily used for anti-aircraft/anti-mecha purposes, in large numbers the Light Missile Carrier is a danger even to large capital ships and is often found in mixed groups of Reguld mecha along side Heavy Missile Carriers and standard Regulds.
-STAR WARS: As Captain Wessen and the rest of the IRTf, along with the Rebels of the liberated SDF Macross both make war with the alien Zentraedi, many versions of the Tactical Battle Pod (TBP) would be encountered during the many bloody battles between all three forces.  As standard Battle Pods and Battle Pod formations would meet rising dificulty bringing down the enemy, more and more Light Artillery Battle Pods (LABP) would see service on the front lines to decimate enemy formations and open a hole in the lines, allowing other Battle pods to drive the wedge and force many retreats for both the Imperials AND the Rebels.  Combining the best two of the three main weapons from the standard Battle Pod with devestating Short Range missiles, the LABP gave the extra needed firepower to larger units of TBPs when needed on the battlefield on the ground or in the depths of space.
