When Monotron needed to deliver important equipment, they wanted a reliable escort ship. Inspired by the renowned success of the 6872 Xenon X-Craft, Monotron HQ decided to revive the line. While the Xenon was an all-around fighter, the Radon is focused on escort duties. A dorsal fin, assisted by four maneuvering jets, was added to improve agility. For attack, the forward weapons are high-power, and the rear lasers are extremely accurate.
