Defender-class Guided Missile Little Cruiser was part of the "Battle" series of cruisers that served under the United Earth Forces. It was a subclass of Nelson-class Light Cruiser and a lighter variant of the Geneva-class Battlecruiser. Built to aid in the repelling of future Zentraedi incursions, the Defender was quick, and posed a surprising threat in the battlefield. It was however, somewhat inadequate in dealing with the technologically advanced forces of the Robotech Masters during the Second Robotech War.
Technology and Combat CharacteristicsEdit
The Defender-class was built as a derivative to the popular "Battle" series of cruisers, and was a subclass of the popular Nelson-class Light Cruiser. It served a minor role with the early Expeditionary Forces in deep space as it fired support against incoming enemies.
