The VF-17D Nightmare is a variable fighter introduced in Macross 7. It was used by the U.N. Spacy and was specially designed by General Galaxy for stealth use. It was succeeded by the VF-171 Nightmare Plus.

DevelopmentEdit

The VF-17S is a variant to the standard Nightmare variable fighter featuring increased firepower and more powerful engines. It has become accepted practice in the U.N. Spacy to assign slightly modified variable fighters to team leaders and command officers so the VF-17S was built in line with that operational policy.

Technology & Combat CharacteristicsEdit

Featuring a new head unit with one extra sensor installed, firepower is improved with four anti-aircraft laser guns rather than just a single pair of guns. The VF-17S is also designed with two Shinnakasu Heavy Industry/P&W/Roice FF-2100X Custom thermonuclear turbine engines that provide an additional 9,000 kg [x g] of thrust. Diamond Force commander Lt. Kinryu piloted a VF-17S with a yellow highlighted hull while serving aboard the Macross 7 in 2045. Later Gamlin Kizaki would pilot his own VF-17S and City 7 Mayor and veteran ace pilot Milia Fallyna Jenius would fly a custom red VF-17S.

Notes & TriviaEdit

  • The VF-17 Nightmare is based off the similarly named and designed real-life stealth fighter, the F-117 Nighthawk.
