The R-808 Phoca is a Neucom space shuttle which is exclusively used as a transport & research vehicle.
In 2045, an R-808 Phoca was launched during an attack on the Riass Space Center in the Comona Islands to recon four suspicious General Resource LTD. (GR) Satellites. As the R-808 re-entered the Atmosphere a day later, a GR interceptor group was sent to shoot down the R-808, but failed and were destroyed. The Phoca had brought back evidence that the four GR satellites were not normal satellites but Orbital Satellite Lasers capable of firing at any target on the planet's surface. A day later, Neucom sent its prototype spacecraft, specifically the R-352 Sepia, into space to destroy these satellites before they became operational.
