  • Description and History

    The VF-1A "Super" Valkyrie is at its core a Northrom VF-1A outfitted in the Shinnakasu Heavy Industry FAST Pack augmentative space weapon system. Like all the FAST Pack equipped variable fighters, it enjoys significantly increased weapons payload as well as more fuel and greater thrust. However, the FAST Packs cannot be used in the atmosphere, as they interfere with aerodynamic flight.
