The VF-19ACTIVE Nothung (VF-19ACTIVEノートゥング VF-19 ACTIVE Nōto~ungu) is an experimental variable fighter from Macross The Ride. The term "ACTIVE" stands for Advanced Control Technology for Integrated Valkyries.


The VF-19ACTIVE is an experimental craft developed for data collection based on the VF-19EF Caliburn. It was entrusted to Strategic Military Services (S.M.S.) by the LAI Corporation to carry out test runs. ACTIVE means Advanced Control Technology for Integrated Valkyries; an advanced control technology that's planned to be built-into variable fighter.

Technology & Combat CharacteristicsEdit

The variable-type winglets that the wingtips are equipped with use the freely transforming OTM materials that the YF-21 was formerly equipped with, and such things as the wing cross-section and wing form change depending on all phases of a dogfight.

However, the technology that controls complex control systems like this, without relying on such things as brainwave control system (BDI) or implants, is still in the midst of development. The aircraft, with its intuitive interface due to EG-01M/MP EX-Gear and a high-end management AI, is one that chooses its rider; and the abilities of skilled pilots, like Chelsea Scarlett, are imperative.

Even though the experimental implication of this stubborn craft is the assessment of new technologies, it was deployed by the S.M.S. for the reasons mentioned. Notwithstanding the "Nothung" that Chelsea Scarlett piloted, the number of production for the VF-19ACTIVE was exceedingly small.


At present, the VF-19ACTIVE's appearance in the Vanquish races is a part of the data acquisition for the development of the next generation variable fighter.


Notes & TriviaEdit

  • A new arrangement has been applied to the area of the nozzles, in order to achieve high-maneuverability.
