Its a REF(?) style Female Zentraedi Power Armor.

I don't remember seeing it in any of the main books. Was it from a Rifter?

Return of the Masters, Expanded Edition(first ed. rules)

It's part of a shipment of abandoned experimental RDF designs that the PCs can find during the Invid Invasion arc.
Other gems include a Super-Alpha, Advanced Recon Battloid, and a pimped-up Super-Logan.

I loved that Super-Logan more than I should. I was so disappointed that I didn't get to use them when I was running Robotech that I used them in Rifts. They died so spectacularly.

One of my long-ago Rifts exercises was to create human-sized AI-drone miniatures of the Robotech mecha using roughly corresponding hums-scale weapons systems(mini-missiles or rocket-propelled grenades filling in for missile systems, submachine guns for heavy machine guns, light rail guns for gun pods, re-tasked cyborg systems for a lot of other systems, etc.). It was part of a marketing ploy by an interdimensional arms company; imagine having a house guard of human-sized destroids protecting your property, or a fully flight-capable miniature Valkyrie as your personal courier 'bot.

The person-scaled Logan replibot was going to be fast, light, and perfect for urban dogfighting and courier duties. :D

Thanks guys.

I’ve only ever owned the standard edition so that’s why this is new to me.

I mainly used Robotech mechs in Rifts just in the first 4 or 5 years, really until Mercenaries came out in '94, as additional mechs and aliens for Rifts. There weren't a lot of RIfts resources back then.

human-sized destroids, while likely an animation error something along those lines can be seen/interpreted from the animation (See Episode "Broken Heart" IIRC, its the air base scene before Rick departs for Operation Star Saver).

Probably leading to some perspective-based errors during field exercises....
