The VF-1EX Valkyrie is a Variable Fighter introduced in the Macross Δ television series. A replica variant of the legendary VF-1 Valkyrie equipped with an EG-01M/MP EX-Gear system and other contemporary internal instruments, it was used by Chaos for training and mock battles.

Technology & Combat CharacteristicsEdit

The VF-1EX was strictly used for its primary objective and never saw real combat. The replica unit retains the overall basic performance of the original VF-1 Valkyrie, the specifications being more than sufficient for basic training. The only difference is the addition of the EG-01M/MP EX-Gear system as an emergency standard. It was also outfitted with other electronic contingency functions like AI-assisted flight and remote override controls. Some of these features can be disabled according to necessity or pilot preferences.

The gun pod unit is usually loaded with paintball rounds. Dummy warheads may be added to the wing hardpoints, but it was never seen being equipped.

VariantsEdit

  • VF-1EX Valkyrie Mirage Farina Jenius Custom
  • VF-1EX Hayate Immelman Custom

HistoryEdit

The VF-1EX was first piloted by Hayate Immelman while going through flight training under Mirage Farina Jenius who was using the same unit. The two VFs were later mobilized for a mock battle that determined whether or not Hayate was to become a full-fledged member of Delta Flight. [1]

Notes & TriviaEdit

  • The head design used is based on the VF-1J Valkyrie.
  • In Macross Δ Scramble, the VF-1EX carries live rounds and can equip all FAST Packs compatible with other VF-1 variants as a playable unit. It also has two extra colors: plain white and golden yellow. Moreover, it appears not only in tutorials but as a grunt unit for a handful of Extra Arc missions.
