Developed from the HWR-00 Monster used in Space War I as a large-scale variable bomber with overwhelming firepower. Despite the heavy armoring and high defensive capabilities, the unit is heavy and restricted in movement. Strategic use of the four rail guns and massive payload is done in cooperation with other variable fighters.
The VB-6, whose development had started in 2030, was advanced at first by a combined design team of Northrom and Grumman. Afterwards, Shinnakasu, who was in charge of the design of the HWR-00-MkII, with the collaboration of Dr. Köning Tiegel, who was the design chief at that time, they successfully solved the various problems with the deterioration of the fuselage strength that accompanied the installation of the variable mechanism into the craft. In 2032, the mass production prototype had its maiden flight and production started. Many completed aircraft were deployed to special forces and in 2040, three VB-6 (one was a spare machine for parts) were delivered to S.M.S. in the Macross Frontier Fleet. By 2059, the VB-6 belonging to S.M.S. had had various upgrades from the original specifications and had participated actively on the front lines in addition to combat missions.

Lifting Strength: At least Class 10, likely higher (Should be stronger compared to VF-25).
Striking Strength: At least Multi-City Block Class
Durability: At least Small Town level, likely Large Town level (It's made of the same armor as VF-25 and has more powerful engines to generate stronger Energy Conversion Armor), likely Large City level (via PPB).
Range: Several dozen kilometers with secondary weapons. At least 100 km with cannons, at least 300 km with missile launchers (But likely higher since it fires anti-ship missiles for space battles - the standard space battle range for Macross series is few lightseconds).
- SWAG energy conversion armor;

Intelligence: Based on pilots,
Weaknesses: It is still slow compared to Mach 20+ VFs.
Key: Standard Load | Reaction Weapons Load | Dimension Eater Load
Note: It weight is around 100 tons and around 28 meters tall in Destroid mode. It can't shoot main armament in the shuttle mode.
