Background

The VF-1 Valkyrie was the first variable fighter to enter widespread use in the UN Forces. It proved a durable and highly adaptable design and was adopted as the main fighter for the UN Forces before Space War I. The VF-1 was built along traditional design styles and featured a conventional airframe design. Besides head-mounted anti-aircraft lasers, all of the VF-1's armament was carried on several wing-mounted hardpoints and one centerline gunpod mount. Several different enhancement packages were available for the VF-1, including a battroid mode-only armored unit, large orbit-reaching boosters, and a FAST Pack assembly that featured large rocket boosters, fuel tanks, and modular weapon mounts for missiles or large beam cannons.

Production began in 2008 and lasted until 2015. During the last three years of its production run, the VF-1 was built alongside its successor, the VF-4 Lightning III, designed by the same company. Later variable fighters like the Shinsei VF-11 Thunderbolt were built on a similar design layout to the VF-1 and it remained a symbol for the UN to the present day. Numerous examples were still in service in the 2040s, including target drones, test articles, trainers, personal craft, various other surplussed examples on the civilian market, and small frontier garrison units. It is likely that no variable fighter will reach the same level of recognition and fame as the VF-1, even long after its departure from active service.

  • Available FAST Packs: Super Pack, Armored, ELINT Pack, SES Pack, Frankenstein Pack
  • GM's Note: While normal combat rules dictate a minimum of one pose to close into range on a target, Long Range Missiles (LRMs) allow the player to fire immediately when their turn comes up and can only be counter-attacked if the defender has LRMs equipped as well.
  • GM's Note: Base damage for the VF-1A's anti-aircraft laser is 35. For VF-1s with additional lasers, the damage is 40 for models with two, and 45 for ones with four.
