The YF-27-5 Shaher Femail (YF-27-5 シャヘル・♀(フィメール) YF-27-5 Shaheru♀(Fimēru)) is an advanced prototype variable fighter that appeared in Macross The Ride. It was designed as a technology demonstrator variable fighter created by Macross Galaxy Fleet's Variable Fighter Development Arsenal's subsidiary, Guld Works, and is based on the YF-24 Evolution and as a direct development of the YF-21 and VF-22 Sturmvogel II line of Variable Fighters. It served as the experimental prototype of the VF-27γ Lucifer.

The YF-27-5 was most notably used by Maris Stella and Fasces' leader Naresuan during the Vanquish races in Macross The Ride. A previous iteration, the YF-27-3 Shahar, was assigned to Major Brera Sterne.

Technology & Combat CharacteristicsEdit

The YF-27-5 was developed by Macross Galaxy Fleet's Variable Fighter Development Arsenal's Guld Works, based on the YF-24 Evolution, as one of the prototype's of the new model Variable Fighter VF-27γ Lucifer. It has a wing-shape which is close to the YF-24's wing-shape. However, unlike the YF-24, the YF-27-5 is not equipped with an Inertia Store Converter (ISC) due to output concerns. However, a previous prototype, the YF-27-3 Shahar, originally assigned to Major Brera Sterne of the 52nd Fighter Wing "Antares" flight, had a four-engine configuration and was outfitted with an ISC. This was done despite its unstable engine output and lag in its control system.

This craft is an experimental prototype and a direct descendant from the VF-22 Sturmvogel II. It has a control system that is an evolution of the original BDI (Brain Direct Image) System, allowing a seamless implanted control system that would allow it to be directly controlled by the pilot's brain.

In addition to using visual stealth camouflage for stealth missions and so-called optical camouflage in the armor, a "dazzle" camouflage has been applied in order to misidentify the YF-27-5's direction of travel.

During its test phase, the YF-27-5 was used for black operations on behalf of the Galaxy Company where it took in a large amount of combat data for "Guld Works" development team. This same company is said to have developed a mass-production craft whose degree of completion by illegal means has also been proven to be very high. In the end, despite these unethical techniques, the success of the VF-27γ Lucifer vindicated the company's efforts.[1]
