Disposable Rocket Booster

While the VF-1 is capable of leaving the Earth and entering space on its own, this puts a considerable strain on both the airframe and the pilot, as well as taking a considerable amount of time. The Disposable Rocket Booster was developed to put a Veritech in orbit quickly and easily. The Veritech is attached to the booster in a hanger, then mounted on the carrying vehicle. Once at the launch site, the Veritech is raised into position, and fired.

The booster can only be used once, however. It can also be used in space to get a Veritech someplace in a very short time. The booster is NOT protoculture powered.
