The R-505U is only used by high ranking UPEO or Neo United Nations personnel. Made especially by Neucom Inc. for the Neo United Nations, the R-505U is thought to be one of a kind since no other models of its kind have been seen in service.
It is based on of the Aérospatiale Concorde's air frame, but it is heavily modified to make it even faster than the Concorde itself; plus, it's fuselage is almost twice the length of the Concorde. The engines have been heavily modified by Neucom's best technicians for maximum speed; the tail section has also been modified to handle these extreme high speeds. While the R-505U's top speed is classified, it is believed that it is the only aircraft of its size which can supercruise at hypersonic speeds (hypersonic being at or above Mach-5). In 2045, the R-505U was assigned to a high priority mission: UPEO representative Gabriel W. Clarkson was to meet with Neucom leaders and speak with them about their aggressions againstGeneral Resource LTD.. However, it was found that this mission was a cover and that Clarkson was attempting to defect to Neucom. The R-505U was engaged by the UPEO's SARF and resulted in the destruction of the R-505U, and the death of all those aboard, including Gabriel W. Clarkson and the pilot, Fiona Fitzgerald.
Of note, the destruction of the R-505U and the deaths of everyone aboard can be avoided by shooting the SARF aircraft down during the decision point, although this is not canon.
