This craft was developed as part of a prototype design under the direction of Doctor Emil Lang where it was stationed onboard the SDF-3. Lieutenant Rebecca Nicks was in charge of oversight of the craft. However, Lynn Kyle commandeered the fighter in order to spirit Lynn Minmei away from the SDF-3 so that she could escape the clutches of General T. R. Edwards. General Edwards launched his elite Ghost Squadron to retrieve Minmei
However, their interception mission faced difficulty as they intended to keep their secret orders from being discovered by Lieutenant Nicks. The Delta managed to evade its pursuers and reach Tirol's airspace but General Edwards had the planetary anti-air batteries shoot the craft down whereupon it crashed on the surface. The fighter managed to survive though was damaged but its occupants fled into the city to escape Edward's forces.
