Lloyd Vandenburg is a US Army Lieutenant-General, mentioned in TSFIA #8 Question of Honor.

He is considered the "Father of the TSF".

After having witnessed the world-wide success of 2nd-generation TSFs, such as the F-14 Tomcat, F-15 Eagle, and F-16 Fighting Falcon, he gave a proposal in 1982 that would eventually lead the ATSF, which in turn produced 3rd-generation TSFs such as the YF-22 and the YF-23 Black Widow II. This proposal also supported the then-secret Hi-MAERF project.

Quote[edit | edit source]

"Due to the deployment of 2nd-generation TSFs, the estimated date of BETA eradication can be numbered in years as of now. With their defeat, the priority would shift to securing the rare element deposit within each Hive. No doubt a new arms race over the rare elements will occur, and the worldly nations would once again assert dominance over their lost territory. I propose that future weapon development program should consider both improved anti-BETA, and superior anti-human capabilities".
