VF-25 Messiah Variable Fighter Profile by zeiram0034 VF-25 Messiah Variable Fighter Profile by zeiram0034
Nearly as much throwback as it is next generation, the VF-25 Messiah is the new variable fighter developed independently by Shinsei Industry/ Macross Frontier Arsenal Original Development/ Macross Frontier fleet's L.A.I. Designed from the YF-24 prototype, the Messiah was built as the potential successor to the VF-171 Nightmare Plus, the main variable fighter of the New UN Spacy still in active service as of 2059. The offensive weapons of the VF-25 are many, being armed with a new model gun pod, multiple sets of beam cannons and an assault knife housed inside the shield block. The VF-25 utilizes a shield and pin-point barrier system for defense, but is also equipped with a new Inertia Capacitor (ISC) and EX-Gear system which supports the pilot by reducing the effects of acceleration. With this new ISC/EX-Gear system operational, the VF-25 is capable of more mobility and combat capability beyond the limits of manned maneuvering.

By far the most impressive capability of the VF-25 is the valkyrie's amazing operational versatility, owing much to a design philosophy similar to that of the original VF-1 Valkyrie. The Messiah is designed for multipurpose deployment as fighter craft, attack craft, fighter/bomber, reconnaissance and command/control craft for unmanned combat aerial vehicles (Ghost fighters). The VF-25 achieves success in these varied operational roles by exchanging modules, which allow different pilots to utilize the mission specific characteristics of the customized Messiah unavailable in the standard model. The VF-25 customized configurations include the VF-25G designed for sniper operations and the RVF-25 with enhanced electronic warfare capabilities. The Messiah is also able to deploy with a high-maneuverability Super FAST pack system or a Full Armor system, though unlike the VF-1 Valkyrie's Armored system, the VF-25 Armored parts permit full transformation without ejection. The VF-25 Messiah has not yet been adopted by the New UN Forces, but has been mass produced by the Strategic Military Services (SMS) for field testing in real combat scenarios.

But still Robotech is kinda a cool intro to one of the most prolific animes of all time.

Yeah, without Robotech, we would have never known about Macross or anime in general, but it got Macross in such a legal mess that the sequels can't be licensed...and the company that made Robotech are being overprotective of the license, suing anyone and what pisses me off the most is that the original owners don't even do anything about it. And not to mention I had to listen to fans groan and moan about it.

It also has a lot to do with the cost of licensing the music, which is such an integral part of Macross - Mangle, er, Manga lost money on Macross Plus because the music was so expensive.

Nice job! It's been a while since I saw a Macross/Robotech mech. I thought the gerwalk mode was called Guardian Mode though, but maybe I'm just out of touch.
