The ROBOTECH REFERENCE GUIDE - 2060 EDITION is collection of Technical Files and Essays on the Robotech Universe by fans for fans written from the point of view of the year 2060 in the Television series continuity, sixteen years after the Battle of Reflex Point. We have intended it to be a comprehensive guide to the hardware and history of the Robotech universe, from within the perspective of that universe. Our Technical Files are inspired by the Jane's series of books on the World's militaries. We base our analyses on details from the animation and other sources we deem appropriate. We thank you for taking the time to peruse the material and constructive comments are always appreciated. Thanks for visiting!
We would like to thank the kind support of Jeff Myers and 3Dgamedev.com in hosting this site.
This new site is an "ongoing" beta-testing version for the new incarnation of the files, the "Robotech Reference Guide", and has been made accessible to the public in the hope that you will help us review and revise the files for possible future publication. By accessing the files, you are agreeing that you will not copy or redistribute our original material in any way or form. The text, and any original image credited to Matt Willis, Harvey Johnston, Tim Wing, or "Super Dave", is to remain only at our site, and is not to be put up on any other location, in whole or in part, without prior and explicit permission from the artist and Pete Walker or Rob Morgenstern.

7/18/01 - Haven't updated this in a while. We are in the midst of updating files based on Harmony Gold decisions about the content and capabilities of certain ships and mecha. In the midst of the Naval files. The Tristar and Montgolfier are the most recent. Also revised the RMS series of missiles and Spacelord and Skylord to make their yields more consistent with their relative sizes. See the Veritech and Naval index files for other updated files based on the date of update.
4/16/01 - Updated files for the Alphas, Drones and Beta are on-line as well as the SynchroCannon.
2/21/01 - Updated numerous files to be consistent with the content negotiated with Harmony Gold. This is primarily just the designations and ship classes. Some content will also likely need further update.
11/22/00 - Expect some significant changes here and there in the next few months with Harmony Gold's Robotech.com going on-line soon, as we aline things with the approved canonical details and actually review some of our more ancient files.

Also, there is now an HTML version of Aubry's solution to the SDF-2 and Pete's review of the Robotech movie. We are also in process of finally getting around to the Southern Cross battloids and fleshing out the timeline.
