Prometheus class

From Macross Compendium

Prometheus Class (CVS)


  • Government: United Nations
  • Ship Type: Aircraft Carriers

Authorized as a super-large-scale semi-submersible attack aircraft carrier used to deploy variable fighters (VF). Built with Overtechnology derived from SDF-1 Macross. It employed an open-type hanger deck. In space, this design was useful and contributed to the quick deployment of the VF. In February 2009, it was connected to the port side of Macross as an emergency measure after it was involved in a fold with Macross where it was transferred to Pluto. It played an important role to the offense and defense of Macross as the home of the VFs.


Bridge located rear, starboard side. Window-like panels are part of the radar system. Arresting wire system for decelerated landings. Water-cooled blast deflectors on carrier deck. Nine deck elevators with airtight hanger doors.
