The VF-5000 Star Mirage is a variable fighter seen in several games, such as Macross VF-X2 and Macross M3.

Technnology & Combat Characteristics

When the aerospace engineering divisions of VF-1 Valkyrie co-developers Stonewell/Bellcom and Shinnakasu Heavy Industries merged in 2012, their first project was a program to improve on the VF-1 through the adoption of Zentradi overtechnology. The end result of that project was the VF-5000, a lightweight support and air superiority variable fighter, though its roles expanded to include aggressor and trainer assignments after mass production ended. The VF-5000 served as the atmosphere-specialized counterpart to the VF-4 Lightning III during the 2020s, supplanting the VF-1 Valkyrie and VF-5, before being replaced by the VF-11 Thunderbolt in the 2030s.

After the introduction of the VF-11, many Star Mirages were sold into the colonial defense market. The most famous user of the VF-5000's export variants was the allied world of Zola, whose police forces were equipped with VF-5000G Star Mirage units armed with non-lethal adhesive-firing weaponry.
