R-101 Delphinus I
R-102 Delphinus II
The R-103 Delphinus III is a cutting-edge fighter aircraft designed by the corporation Neucom Incorporated.
The final expression of Neucom's famous R-10X aircraft line, the R-103 Delphinus III fuses the latest aviation technologies, such as energy weaponry and the COFFIN system, while including substantial upgrades over the previous models, such as a multi-wing airframe that greatly increases its maneuverability and state-of-the-art engines which give it an unprecedented advantage in terms of performance over other aircraft of its age.
In the year 2040, the R-103 passed its test phases and mass-production was started. The plane saw action during the Usean Corporate War, and proved to be far superior to other high-end aircraft of its era, like the F-22C Raptor II. Cynthia Fitzgerald of the NEU replaced her R-102-C with the new model in order to keep her combat edge. As well, the insurgent Ouroboros group fielded black-coloured R-103s, serving as escorts of the group's forward base, the UI-4053 Sphyrna.
