The VF-1 Valkyrie was the primary variable fighter used during Space War 1

The VF-1 Valkyrie is the mass produced variable fighter introduced by the U.N. Spacy in 2009. Initially thought to be just an updated F-14 (from an observers standpoint), The fighter has 3 modes of transformation. It was designed to fight aliens (specifically Giants) that were found about the SDF-1 when it crashed. The VF-1 has thermonuclear engines for power and multiple thrusters for space operations. It served from 2009 till 2015 when it was replaced by the VF-4 Lightning III.

Over 40 years later the VF-1 can still be found in various frontier colonies and space forces. Civilians are required to have the weapons stripped off, but officers were allowed to keep their old Valkyries and they were upgraded with modern avionics and engines. Milia Jenis, the mayor of Macross 7 kept her VF-1J (it was destroyed that year). Basara Nekki flew one to watch & sing with the Space Whales in 2045. Poachers had rigged their VF-1's to kill and harvest the whales.

Powerplant

Engines generate 17,680 PS during ground combat, or 956 PS/t with standard take-off mass.
  • The VF-1S version has Shinnakasu Heavy Industry/P&W/Roice FF-2001D engines.
  • The VF-1X Plus has Shinnakasu Heavy Industry/P&W/Roice FF-2079J thermonuclear turbine engines, each rated at 15000 kg [x g] class.
  • The VT-1C has custom tuned Shinnakasu Heavy Industry/P&W/Roice FF-2001 engines, each rated at approximately 10000 kg [x g] class.
  • Two-dimensional exhaust nozzles, for enhanced V/STOL performance and maneuverability. Rectangular underfuselage air intakes with intake vane, variable ramps, and retractable cover shutters in Battroid mode or space use.
  • Superconducting ram-air pre-compressors in forward engine nacelles and main compressors to the fore of thermonuclear reactors.
  • Four Shinnakasu Heavy Industry NBS-1 high-thrust vernier thrusters. (One counter reverse vernier thruster nozzle on the side of each leg nacelle air intake, and wing thruster roll control system on each wingtip.)
  • Eighteen P&W LHP04 low-thrust vernier thrusters beneath multipurpose hook/handles. Vernier thrusters with chemical fuel tanks in backpack section in GERWALK and Battroid modes. Vernier system below nose and in aft engine nacelles.
  • Fluid pulse actuators enable transformation.
  • Two cooling sub-air intake/airframe lift adjustment slits located on forward main body in Fighter mode.
  • Wing intergral tanks and engine nacelle propellant tanks.
  • Option of Shinnakasu Heavy Industry GBP-1S ground-combat protector weapon system with two assist thrusters; atmospheric-escape booster system with four 22500 kg [x g] class conventional rocket engines; or Shinnakasu Heavy Industry FAST Pack space booster system with two 120000 kg [x g] class (for 150 seconds at maximum thrust) P&W+EF-2001 booster thrusters, two leg/engine-pod-mounted CTB-04 conformal propellant tanks (for both propellant and coolant), and numerous high-maneuverability vernier thrusters in two dorsal-mounted NP-BP-01 (NP-BP-T1 on VT-1, NR-BP-E3 on VE-1) and two leg/engine-pod-mounted NP-FB-01 (NP-FB-T1 on VT-1, NR-FS-E3 on VE-1) systems. The VT-1's FAST Pack space booster variant includes enhanced vernier thrusters and an additional tail unit booster. Option of dorsal space/atmospheric booster pods (VT-1C).
