These fighters were 25% more maneuverable than a Super Veritech and had a top speed of Mach 5.1. It was also equipped with autosynch stealth technology which made it invisible to all known RDF and even Zentraedi radar or tracking systems. In terms of armaments, it was equipped with a GU-13 50mm Gun pod. In addition, it was armed with a missile system which was able to be used in battle engagements. Similar to the other Veritech fighters, the Interceptor Series 2 was able to convert from fighter to Guardian and Battloid mode.
A fully functioning prototype of the design was operational during the First Robotech War though it had not been tested in combat. During this time, it had undergone 9 test runs and exercises. Rick Hunter and Max Sterling both inspected the Veritech during their tour of the site where they were shown the mecha by Doctor Chase along with Professor Evelyn Ashland
Lieutenant Commander McGavin was meant to be the test pilot of the craft when it came under attack by Zentraedi forces under the command of Major Calen. His forces managed to easily overwhelm the Human defenders and forced Max Sterling to commandeer the VFI2 in order to battle the attackers. He ultimately was forced to battle Calen in his Power Armor and was able to defeat his Zentraedi foe.
