Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

I'll have to see if I can find scans of the manual (I didn't buy the Super Pack kit in question) and check its contents against the other info we've got for the Super Pack... which is disappointingly sparse outside of Variable Fighter Master File . The information I've seen attributes all the rocke...

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

Hm... if you don't mind my asking, what language are the translations you're reading translating Japanese into? There may be a transliteration rule difference in play here. (Also, we want to be precise and make the distinction between the manufacturer of the pack and the equipment inside the pack.)...

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

Dunno 'bout that... General Galaxy got the New UN Gov't to sign off on one of their branch offices being an autonomous state exempt from a bunch of laws so it could function as a giant experimental laboratory, and managed to get away with arming it with the latest, most sophisticated weapons money ...

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

I am so surprised and confused now, for there are so many things about YF-24 family I never heard before and different from what I know for almost a decade. "Heavily involved" is putting it mildly... Macross Galaxy is, in the most stringently literal sense, a huge spacegoing subsidiary of the Genera...

Re: Best designed warship in UC

Ra Cailum, I remember that when I saw a thread on a now defunct Taiwan Forum eleven or twelve years ago, the author described Ra Cailum as "the cumulation of Federal warship technologies", even "a remedy of all those ship-building failure in the past". It may be exaggerated, but it is a well-balance...

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

All this is really interesting stuff to me. Though one question I have - and this might be a stupid one - in the case of the VF-27, I would imagine it to be the exception among YF-24 descendants in that I would expect it to have been developed via a branch office of General Galaxy rather than a Shi...

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

Earth is still an important planet in the 2050's and 2060's... it just isn't the center of the galaxy anymore. Earth is still the de facto capital of the New Unification Government. Macross City in Alaska is pulling triple duty as the planetary capital, the solar system capital, and the Seat of the...

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

YF-24 is continued in the form of VF-25, VF-27, YF-29, YF-30 and VF-31, it was a design that was sent to various fleets for licensing which the fleets themselves made, its why the VF-25 and VF-27 differ despite being from the same family line. These top of the line fighters are very expensive, and ...

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

You're operating with a rather fundamental misunderstanding of how the New UN Government and the New UN Forces work. They're not monolithic, centralized entities and hadn't been for decades before Macross Frontier and Macross Delta . Each fleet is essentially an independent state in space, to such ...

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

No idea! The official coverage of the YF-29B Percival amounts to precisely two sentences. No really. Literally all we're told is that it's used by the top aces of the New UN Spacy 815th Independent Special Command "Havamal"... and that it's an improved version of the YF-29 Durandal. (Which still ma...
