Built largely using elements from other Zentraedi mecha, the Recovery
pod is mainly used in retrieval and capture operations. When the opportunity presents itself,
the pod can aptly grab hold of damaged mecha or potential prisoners. The Zentraedi also used
the pod to conduct external maintenance of their craft, though with their extremely limited
base of technical knowledge, the maintenance and repairs were rudimentary at best. Few
Recovery Pods were ever produced, with the great majority of the pods being used at the
various Robotech Factories.
