Development[edit | edit source]
The VF-17 Nightmare, primarily designed as a space fighter, features most of the power and weaponry for extended space operations without the need for special hardware. In those rare cases the VF-17 requires deployment with a heavier weapons load, the Super Pack system is designed to augment the variable fighter with even more firepower. Four Super Packs are mounted on the Nightmare featuring two pulse laser guns and two micro-missile launchers.
In addition, the two boosters are built into the pulse laser packs, providing more thrust to compensate for the additional weight of the Super Pack system. The ventral micro-missile packs are mounted under the wings in fighter mode and feature two swivel latches that rotate the packs onto the ventral fuselage during transformation, mounting the packs upon the outer side of the legs in Battroid mode. The Super Pack is an effective if rarely deployed hardware system, typically used only for special operations as the passive stealth of the VF-17 is undermined when equipped with Super Packs.
