The R-201 Asterozoa is a dual-seat attacker aircraft manufactured by Neucom Incorporated and the first attacker aircraft of the company's "R-Series".
After the success of the R-101, Neucom quickly made a second aircraft geared for ground attack. It was to work alongside the R-101 Delphinus. The R-201 Asterozoa's design had and still is, one of the most 'radical' designs made by Neucom Inc. With its dual-COFFIN, podded design it was thought to be a little out-landish. There also was a speed problem and it was vulnerable to high speed interceptors.
It wasn't until 2045 that the Asterozoa showed that it was an amazing ground attacker, despite its short comings. Along with the R-101, it sold very well. By the middle of the war, it was replaced by the R-211 Orcinus within Neucom control. It continued to operate within the Universal Peace Enforcement Organization as the R-201U.
