General Kyle (General Kuroda ジェネラル黒田) is the commanding officer of Earth Defence Forces. With his snow-white beard and hair, General Kyle represents an imposing figure.
Realizing that mankind's only hope is the top secret "X Project", General Kyle orders the unfinished X-Bomber project be launched. It was he who selected Shiro Hagen, Barry Hercules and John Lee as crew.
Though clearly out of his depth facing the might of the Alliance and their puzzling demands to hand over F-01, Kyle retains a strong sense of responsibility for the forces and never concedes points during negotiations, although he knows when to put the safety of his people first. With nerves of steel, General Kyle only ever shows the Alliance stout defiance, despite frequently having his fighters and installations blown up all around him.
