Description:
   The Destroid Cheyenne is an anti-air interception robot designed for use as both fixed and mobile defense aboard carriers. With wheels built for added mobility and high capacity ammunition drum, the Cheyenne was both a respectable offensive unit and a tenacious defensive system. The Cheyenne was also produced in a anti-air missile variant with two missile launching pods similar to the SDR-04-Mk XII Destroid Phalanx (replacing the gatling gun arm units). The Destroid Cheyenne was highly reliable and cheap to mass-produce with existing technology. During UN Spacy operations around the island of Mayan in September 2008, the Destroid Cheyenne was deployed aboard the aircraft carrier CVN-99 Asuka II.
   Later, during the events of Super Dimensional Fortress Macross (or Robotech if you prefer), the destroids used were more specialized, with the Phalanx possessing firepower in an abundance of missiles, and the Defender having anti-aircraft guns.  Later, in Macross Frontier, the Cheyenne returns as the main ADR battle robot.
   In Robotech, the Cheyenne destroid makes a good precursor to the other variant destroids used in the series.
