Sometimes, the lineart is misleading.
Yup... esp. when it comes to gimmicks that were added for a single episode. You wouldn't believe how much confusion the leg bays the VF-11C spontaneously manifested for Operation Stargazer caused.

I didn't expect the thinner leg of the VF-171 to have space for the gun pod. Also, its gun pod seems too long for the leg. Where is the the port for the gun pod to shoot out of?
It should be around the outside edge of the knee... though I don't think they ever put it on the CG model proper, since it was meant to be a background mecha and almost never uses that gunpod.

The gunpod itself is only about half as long as it looks. Everything aft of the grip is a folding stock that wraps around the barrels in storage mode.

Does the VF-171 also have the same weapon bays as the VF-17?
According to Macross Chronicle, yes.

Did s'more translation work to uncover the details behind the later generations of thermonuclear reaction turbine engine in Master File. There's some interesting stuff there about how they use gravity control to moderate airflow through the engine.

I'm gonna be taking a whack at some of the content from the new Variable Fighter Master File: VF-1S Roy Focker Special tomorrow as well. The book's almost a 50-50 split between awesome new tech content and filler about background designs from the First Space War. It offers some interesting details about the actual manufacturing of the VF-1 as well as how its ANGIRAS airframe control AI operates.

Since Kawamori has the habit of reusing old designs, which designs from the Macross Design Works (https://e-hentai.org/g/964676/268dd04850/) that hasn't turned up in animation would you like to appear?

Most of that stuff is already in Macross in one form or another... apart from a few designs that were made for the Air Cavalry Chronicles series that evolved into the Varauta VFs from Macross 7,the only design that's really not part of Macross proper in that book right now is the VF-1's Stampede Pack from the non-canon line of FamilySoft Macross games for the PC98.

The Advanced Valkyrie designs were largely all brought in as prototype VFs belonging to the 2nd or 3rd Generation back in '08 (if not earlier).
