The Depp Rog is a heavy bomber that appears in the anime Mobile Suit Gundam.
Technology & Combat Characteristics
It was the largest aircraft of the Federation Forces deployed at the time of the One Year War. It carries a large number of guided bombs (beam-guided and image-scanning) and cruise missiles, and is used to sweep up the Principality of Zeon forces hiding in mining bases and forests. It is relatively fast for a bomber, and the wide roof of the cockpit, which is said to be the same as that of a World War II bomber in design, is effective in visual combat. However, it is considered to have no air combat capability, and is accompanied by FF-4 Toriares and Fly Manta during operations. It has a crew of seven: two pilots, a navigator, a bombardier, and three laser gunners. In addition to the ground-sweeping type with numerous 20mm motor Gatling guns mounted on the bottom, and the base attack type with laser-guided bombs, many variants, such as a type modified as an air-launching mother ship for the Flydart, have participated in actual combat and achieved results.
