The Bioroid Soldier Mark II, known commonly among the Army of the Southern Cross as a Bioroid, was an uparmored, and much more agile version of the standard Bioroid. It was deployed during the last phases of the Second Robotech War by the Robotech Masters, and later, the Robotech Masters Remnant. It was featured in Robotech: Fall of the Southern Cross.
The Bioroid Soldier Mark II was incapable of full flight, but it makes up for these deficiencies with one of two types of gun pod and the Bioroid Skysled. The Bioroid Soldier was usually equipped with the "Drum" gun pod.
The Bioroid Soldier Mark II, part of the Bioroid series, was the successor of the original Bioroid Soldier. The Mark II was developed as a general purpose mecha for the Masters' warrior clones, who formed the combat and guard troops directly under the Robotech Masters themselves. The requirements for this mecha were different than those for the Zentraedi mecha, for where the Zentraedi were created to conquer or to destroy, the Bioroids were as much meant to police and to protect as to engage in combat.
