The RF-12A2 Blackbird II is an interceptor variant of the SR-71 Blackbird built to handle targets at ultra-high altitudes.
General Resources Limited, a world wide company on the Usean Continent was constantly having it’s facilities watched by Neucom aircraft, which had began to violate the airspace restriction laws set by the UPEO. Neucom began flying at ultra-high altitudes over GR controlled cites, bases and areas with their R-531 Moburas and R-311 Remora escorts.
General Resource had a plan to modify the only aircraft they had capable of reaching those altitudes. They began retrofitting their SR-71s. The main upgrades installed in the Blackbird were a missile payload, advanced engine thrust, a COFFIN system, and an additional tail fin at the bottom of the craft for increased yaw, but the rest of the aircraft essentially remained the same as the original SR-71. This upgraded version soon became known as the RF-12A2 Blackbird Mk.II.
Early in 2045, an entire Neucom Transport group consisting of four R-531s and six R-311s was shot down by two RF-12A2s from General Resources White Valley Air Base. Another engagement took place over Expo City during a Neucom air strike which targeted General Resource civilian worker facilities.
