The Ark Angel-class colony fortress was a type of vessel used by the REF, built to replace the older Angel-class vessel. This was the largest vessel designed by the REF, at nearly the same size as a Zentraedi destroyer . (Robotech: The Shadow Chronicles)
This starship class was designed with the armaments and armor of a battlefortress, along with the latest advancements in Robotechnology, to supplant the earlier Angel-class colony vessels that were deemed too vulnerable to defend against hostile forces.
