- Hero-class technical file
No written information nor line drawings exist referencing the Hero-class Mine Warfare Ship. Indeed, the entire entry comes from this one scene from the first episode of Robotech, in which an unidentified ship is shown alongside the UES Prometheus. In the original file from the unofficial Robotech Reference Guide, by Pieter Thomassen, had the total number of ships at 414. I’ve pared this down by a factor of ten. Not that I don’t think there were that many ships, but rather because they would likely be of several different classes which would have been spread out among the navies of the world. A smaller number would have been operated directly by the UN Spacy Naval Forces.
