Developed in 2007, the Angel of Death is a nuclear tipped missile intended to give spaceborne mecha some capability against large starships. Its primary carrier, the VF-1 Valkyrie, can carry six of these missiles under its wings. If required, the missiles can also be used in an atmosphere and against ground targets. In the latter case, a large number of possible flight paths (including ballistic, terrain following or a combination) can be programmed into the missile up until the launch initialization.
Primarily used in space against Zentraedi starships, these missiles, though powerful enough to destroy a Strike Cruiser with one hit, were usually launched in salvos in order to overwhelm the point defenses of their targets.
