The VF-1X Valkyrie Plus, often shortened as VF-1X-Plus is an updated version of the VF-1 Valkyrie variable fighter featured in the game Macross VF-X2.

DevelopmentEdit

The final rollout of the original VF-1 Valkyrie in A.D. 2020 marked the end of mass production for the variable fighter made famous in Space War I. In the decades that followed, the VF-1 Valkyrie was removed from active service in most branches of the United Nations Military. The only new variable fighters built from the VF-1 airframe were commercial versions such as the VT-1C Commercial Valkyrie and construction vehicles used in shipyards. Those few VF-1 Valkyries still in active service in the late 2040s went through a refit program, with capabilities that could at least match a VF-11B Thunderbolt.

Technology & Combat CharacteristicsEdit

This modernized Valkyrie was re-designated the VF-1X Plus and was overhauled with upgraded materials, avionics and power plants. The new systems had to be accommodated within a variable fighter frame not designed for such modern technology and as a result added some 600 kg to the vehicle for a total variable fighter weight of 13.85 metric tons. However, two Shinnakasu Heavy Industry/P&W/Roice FF-2079J thermonuclear turbine engines improved the performance of the VF-1 considerably with a combined 7,000 kg of additional thrust. The added thrust not only improved acceleration of the VF-1X, but also increased the maximum velocity of the fighter mode. Though the VF-1X Valkyrie Plus still underperformed relative to the current variable fighters of the late 2040 era, the old Valkyrie was upgraded sufficiently to once again operate practically on the modern battlefield.
