The VF-0D Phoenix is a variable fighter that appears in the Macross Zero OVA.

Technology & Combat CharacteristicsEdit

The VF-0D Phoenix is a two-seat variant of the standard VF-0 variable fighter and features larger main wings for improved range. For maneuverability, the VF-0D has two large canards mounted ahead of the main wings and two ventral stabilizers near the intakes. The increased surface are of the main wing allows the VF-0D to carry 20% greater maximum payload than the VF-0A Phoenix and VF-0S Phoenix variants and is capable of mounting most former United States/NATO standard aviation weaponry. Shin Kudō and Edgar LaSalle piloted a VF-0D during the events surrounding the island of Mayan in 2008.
