Here's the BatteTech/Macross/Robotech mecha scorecard:

BattleTech Macross Robotech
--------------------- -------------------------------- ---------------------
ARC-2R Archer = MBR-07 Spartan Mk II Destroid = MBR-07 Gladiator Mk
CDR-3R Crusader = VF-1J Valkyrie Armored Battloid
MDR-3R Marauder = Glaugg Command Combat Pod = Officer Battle Pod
OST-9C Ostroc Mk II = Regault Artillery Combat Pod = Heavy Artillery Pod
PHX-1 Phoenix Hawk = VF-1S Super Valkyrie Battloid
PHX-HK2 Phoenix Hawk = LAM VF-1S Super Valkyrie GERWALK
RFL-3N Rifleman = ADR-04 Defender Mk X Destroid = ADR-04 Raidar-X Mk X
STG-3R Stinger = VF-1A Valkyrie Battloid
STG-A5 Stinger LAM = VF-1A Valkyrie GERWALK
WHM-6R Warhammer = MBR-04 Tomahawk Mk VI Destroid = MBR-04 Excalibur Mk
VLK-QA Valkyrie = VF-1J Valkyrie Battloid
WSP-105 Wasp = VF-1S Valkyrie Battloid
WSP-105 Wasp LAM = VF-1S Valkyrie GERWALK

The Macross Spartan becomes Robotech Gladiator and the BattleTech Archer, the
Defender becomes the Raidar-X and Rifleman and the Tomahawk becomes the
Excalibur and Warhammer.

And, as noted, the Macross SDR-04 Phalanx Mk XII became the Robotech Spartan Mk
XII, which has no corresponding BattleTech mech.
