Views of the Conbat.

The Conbat can also carry heavy ordnance to strike hardened targets.

The Conbat was used against the Invid during the first ill-fated attempt to liberate the Earth in 2038.

This non-transformable fighter was developed by the Robotech Expeditionary Force to provide for rapidly deployable, fast-attack, heavy-ordnance delivery in support of REF military operations (in particular, the first Earth Reclamation mission of 2038.)

Primarily a space-based fighter, it can also operate well within atmospheric conditions. Usually teamed with support of the Condor battloids, the Conbat (also known as the "Bat") proved very successful during its career. They were eventually phased out as the more advanced Alpha and Beta Fighters assumed the multi-purpose roles of the Robotech Expedition's primary strike fighter/bomber.
