Advanced small-scale stealth carrier developed by the United Nations government. It became the de facto mobile base of first VF-0 special duty combat test unit (Skull Team), deployed in 2008. In addition, engineers assigned to the VF-0 development and maintenance were transferred aboard this ship to maintain these difficult units. Two-bridge design.
The Asuka II resembles the carrier used as one of the Super Dimensional Fortress Macross' arms in the series of the same name. it could be a predecessor to that same ship type, testing design and technologies developed after the discovery of overTechnology.
If playing a Robotech game, the Asuka II fits in the same way, a previous model related to the carrier arm of the SDF-1. Either way, the ship survived its conflict near Mayan Island and could very well have even been at Altair Island when the Zentraedi arrived, or elsewhere and have survived that disaster until the escalation that later destroyed earth's population. In Robotech, not all was destroyed, and the Asuka II could have still survived.
