The Depp Rog is a heavy bomber from Mobile Suit Gundam.
Technology & Combat Characteristics
The Depp Rog was the largest size aircraft in the Federation at the time of the One Year War. It carries a large number of cruise missiles and beam-guided, image-scanning guided bombs. It has been used to wipe out the Principality of Zeon forces lurking in mining bases and forests. The Depp Rog is relatively fast for a bomber, and its wide-roof cockpit offers an excellent field of vision during combat. However, it has no air combat capabilities, and thus is accompanied by FF-4 Toriares and Fly Manta during operation. The Depp Rog has a seven member crew, consisting of two pilots, one navigator, one bombardier, and three gunners. There are many variations of the aircraft, such as a ground sweep type equipped with a myriad of 20mm motor Gatling guns on the bottom, a base attack type equipped with a laser-guided bomb. In addition, a Depp Rogg was remodeled in order to carry the Flydart and launch it while in the air.

The Depp Rog was used to carry out long ranged tactical and strategic bombings with a heavier payload than that of the lighter Fly Manta. It served as the core attack unit of the Earth Federation Air Force against Zeon ground bases and saw wide use across the battlefields of Earth.
