Rabbit Punches and Tyger Stripes
The Destroid pilot is the elite grunt of the Robotech Defense Force.
This character is trained in the operation of the most formidable,
frontline, assault and defense mechanism ever devised by mankind; the
Destroid. These 50ft metal giants are non-transformable Battloids, packing
more firepower than ten tanks. See Destroid descriptions.
The Destroid pilot is the only O.C.C. that formally trains the character
to pilot all non-transformable Mecha. After the initial training, the
character receives Mecha combat training in two, specific types of
Destroids (choose two). This training provides the pilot with maximum
combat abilities. Additional Mecha combat can be selected without
limit. Thus, a character may be adept in the piloting of all five Destroids.
Each additional Mecha combat skill counts as one skill.
In addition to the O.C.C. skills listed with their bonuses, the player
can select “Other” skill areas. These additional skills are limited only
