- Armament -
4 x Fixed Mauler RÖV-20 anti-aircraft laser cannons, firing 6,000 pulses per minute each
1 x Howard GU-11 55 mm three-barrel Gatling gun pod with 200 rds fired at 1,200 rds/min
Bombs & Missiles:
4 x underwing hard points for 12 x AMM-1 hybrid guided multipurpose missiles (3/point)
or 12 x MK-82 LDGB conventional bombs (3/point)
or 6 x RMS-1 large anti-ship reaction missiles (2/outboard point, 1/inboard point)
or 4 x UUM-7 micro-missile pods (1/point) each carrying 15 x Bifors HMM-01 micro-missiles
or a combination of above load-outs
Additional Armament (Shinnakasu FAST Pack "Strike" augmentative space weapon system):
6 x micro-missiles in two NP-AR-01 micro-missile launcher pods (mounted rear-ward under center ventral section in Fighter mode or on lower arm sections in GERWALK/Battroid mode)
12 x micro missiles (estimated count) in one HMMP-02 micro-missile launcher pod (mounted port)
1 x Mauler RO-X2A high-powered double-action beam cannon pod (mounted starboard)
The "Strike" Valkyrie is a minor variant to Shinnakasu Heavy Industry's highly successful FAST Pack augmentative space weapon system. Foregoing the standard loadout of two HMMP-02 micro-missile launcher pods, the "Strike" system replaces one of the micro-missile pods (typically starboard) with a Mauler RO-X2A high-powered double-action beam cannon mounted on the NP-BP-01 pod. It is unknown whether the Strike configuration can substitute both HMMP-02 micro-missile launchers for a pair of Mauler RO-X2A cannons. While a pair of beam cannons may be theoretically possible, such a variant has not been seen in active deployment.
Piloted by Roy Focker and Hikaru Ichijo, the "Strike" system was another highly successful variant, granting the VF-1 variable fighter more direct fire weaponry at the cost of a smaller missile payload. Though effective, the "Strike" Valkyrie was not as widely adopted by the U.N. Spacy as the more common "Super" Valkyrie system.
