The original large SAM employed by the Armies of the Southern Cross, this missile was exclusively used on the MT-1 "Hell's Peacock". As time went on, it became increasingly obvious that a smaller missile could employ more advanced propulsion systems to deliver the same warhead to the target with only minimal cost in range. Because of this, the service life of the Pike, while long, ended before the Second Robotech War began in earnest, after which it was replaced by the Swordfish.
