The VF-171EX Super Nightmare Plus is a heavy Variable Fighter that first appeared in Macross Frontier.

DevelopmentEdit

The VF-171 Nightmare Plus is the current New United Nations Spacy main variable fighter that evolved from the VF-17S Nightmare built in the late 2030s. The VF-17 Nightmare was designed by General Galaxy originally as a heavy variable fighter for special operations, but the New U.N. Spacy wished to pursue a mass production model of the Nightmare that would be built in far greater numbers.

Production RemarksEdit

According to Shōji Kawamori, the VF-171 Nightmare Plus was chosen as the main variable fighter for the 2059 setting because the previously designated U.N. Spacy main variable fighter, the VF-19F Excalibur, appeared too much like a "hero" unit. Kawamori also desired a fighter that was clearly distinguishable from the hero unit of the Macross Frontier series, the VF-25 Messiah.
