Since Kagerou's post made me move my lazy self again, might as well follow in his wake.

The R-171 was the very latest and last of a generation of Bureau Fighter Craft, commonly known as "Angels" for their resemblance to the divine winged beings. It has been created as the successor the successful R-X series, a series of angels that not only helped win the First Dimension War, but also kept peace afterwards.
The requirements for a new generation of Angel Fighters to replace the aging R-111, R-191 and R-211 was passed out to manufacturers in the 7th month of MCY 033. These requirements, asides from the features these earlier models had, like unparalled superiority in athmospheric and vacuum mediums, 3-form variable transformation and multi-role capability, it added other features such as spatio-temporal folding capability, unlimited range, and some of the earliest magitech specfications, such as Magically Harmonic Armor, omnidirectional protection, Linker Reactors and Magical Reaction Engines.
Only one company, Vinicular Fightsystems Inc. was able to pass in a design fitting the requirements and at a much lower cost than the nearest competitor. The design featured was a modification of an earlier failed design, coded X-17, a proposed stealth fighter design for special operations, a role that the R-211 won. It was 10% larger than the X-17 and it was built of the newly introduced neo-metal and neo-ceramic that the newest Bureau ships were being built out of, thereby partially cutting costs by as much as 20%, since even scraps of these neo-materials need little processing to turn them into suitable pieces for fabrication.
On the other hand, the engines were purely experimental, merely ultracompact versions of the new Magical Reaction Engines that were being built or outfitted into Bureau ships at the time. Astralite Technologies, a leading maker of MRP (Magical Reaction Propulsion) Systems, had to build an entirely new engine from scratch, making components similar to the larger Type I and Type II engines but many times smaller. Development and subsequent Testing of these "Type III" engines was stalled with great engineering challenges, though similar to the problems faced by the other two types. Though the Linker Reactor, Made by Remeika Inc, was a straightforward affair, since Remeika have been making Class III and Class IV Linker Reactors for domestic and industrial use for a decade already.
By MCY 036, the first prototype was produced and had achieved a number of flight tests when additional changes and updates to the requirements were passed, like adding variable protection settings to the Magically Hamonic Armor, addons for additional roles, improved avionics and AIs, and the most important of all, the addition of Magitech Armaments. Vinicular quickly set to work adding these additional requrements and in the process created its own Magitech Armaments Division which in the span of 3 short years managed to produce the craft's full range of armaments and addons, these include the GMB-02 Magi-Beam Emitter Lenses, KDP-01 antiship harpoon pods, KRP-03 antiship tractor pods and the IDF-3N Spirit Drones.
By MCY 039, the first deliveries began and soon the R-171 had totally replaced all three earlier models, making it the singular fighter unit of the NAS (Navy), AAS (Air Force) and GAS (Ground Forces). But by this time, the decade-long shift to full magitech has began and it was certain that the R-171 was to be the only fighter craft for a long time- and probably the last as well, since ships with additional capabilites, mage numbers and space training became more prolific.
The first recorded engagement of the R-171 to any hostile forces was in the Varauta Dei incident, 31 R-171s in various models engaged an unknown enemy only to be wiped out in the end. The only survivors of the incident, Captain Rhea Holly and Lieutenant Accela Rinkos both fled their mothership, the Ra'sulia in another 171 as soon as they activated the ship's self destruct system and were found near one of Array's Ship paths. Captain Holly, herself a 171 pilot, was on patrol and was engaging another hostile when the incident occured, scoring herself the first of many kills, a feat in itself because she was piloting the rather slow Seeker Model against a highly agile enemy.
The R-171 began to be placed in an important light as many of these skirmishes continued and so in the years leading to the Second Dimensional War, it was produced in substantial numbers. When the Second Dimensional War broke out in MCY 050 against the Chess, the R-171 became the primary offensive and defensive platform of the Bureau. Later on, Captain Holly, now Admiral Rhea Telostos of the Final Line Group (AX) had requested Vinicular to create a custom model for her, featuring some additions such as Energy Repulsion and Absorption Capability, advanced and increased beam lens outputs and improvements to the subsystems, thus giving birth to the R-171HX, also known as the "Holly Custom" or by its widely known nickname "The Black Angel" due ot its black color.
About 120,321 R-171s were built, most of them were destroyed in battle or were never used. By war's end in MCY 053, it was clear that the R-171 no longer had an immidiate purpose, and thus the immdiate disposal of the remaining units was carried out quickly. The last remaining R-171, the "Holly Custom" itself, made its last flight in Ren (march) 3, 054 as part of its handover to the newly opened "Weapon Conservatory of Midchilda", where it remains as an exhibit to this day.
yes this is only for use in "Nanoha the Origin" at the moment.
yes... those babies are old girls now...
