I had always used to use "Inspection Army" too, but the Macross compendium calls it "Supervision army". I've also seen it translated as "Reconissance Forces". Supervision army makes sense if you consider that they are puppets of the Protodevlyn.

Gepernich enslaved the colonists and formed the Varuta Empire, which was later defeated by the Macross 7 fleet after the destruction of the Macross 5 fleet.

OK so that short animation at the end of one of the LDs depicts this doesn't it? I was always under the impression that Gepernich (or Geperniti depending on who you ask) was a male entity inhabiting a female host. not simply a freaky bishonen.And yes, Ivane Gyuntar was a man.
