AIF-9V (V-9) Ghost
This is the main unmanned-aerial vehicle, similar to the AIF-7S Ghost, deployed in the 21st super-long distance emigrant fleet, Macross Galaxy fleet under the alias V-9. Although it has high performance levels in the 2050s and serves as proof-of-technology aircraft, the New U.N. Spacy has not formally recognized this unit for deployment. It follows the form of the Ghost X-9, where development was discontinued.
Sensor located in the nose provides real-time detail of battlefield changes.
