ADR-10-MK XI Raider X

Canonicity

The Raider X has been de-canonized by Harmony Gold. Originally, this mecha was designed by Tatsunoko Production Company for Robotech II: The Sentinels. The Sentinels has since been dropped from the official canon. No written material exists concerning this mecha, apart from that in Robotech II: The Role Playing Game The Sentinels, by Kevin Siembieda. Original animation sheets exist in Robotech II: The Sentinels REF Field Guide, by Kevin Siembieda and one illustration in Robotech Art 3 the Sentinels, by Carl Macek.

  • Customers: REF

 Development

  • Anti-aircraft mecha designed to combat aircraft.

Description

Sensors include a radar with 321 km range which could identify 300 targets and track 100 target simultaneously, a heat tracker, a motion sensor that could detect movement within a 180 meter radius and a radiation sensor with a 180 meter range.

Long range laser communications system, 1000 mile range.

Three utility arms were mounted above the radar. The arms extend out to a maximum of 7.9 meters.
