Variant VF-1D Valkyrie "Virgin Road"|
Debut: Super Dimension Fortress Macross, Episode 25
Description: Prior to the final conflict of Space War I, a truly bizarre series of events occurred that involved UN Spacy ace pilot Maximillian Jenius and Zentradi ace pilot Milia Fallyna. Milia was determined to kill Max, following her defeat at his hands in real combat and at an arcade match while Max remained completely unaware of Milia's true identity. Milia sprung the trap, revealed herself to Max and the two fought with knives. Max won for a third time and Milia completely broke down, pleading for death. However, after their second encounter, Max had already started to fall for Milia and rather than kill her, he expressed his love for her. The unlikely pair were soon married and flew in a customized VF-1D fighter dressed in Max's signature blue colors. The fighter was known as the "Virgin Road" named after the title of the episode in which it first appeared.
NOTE: A VF-1J version of the "Virgin Road" Battroid is shown for curious fans.
Addendum: Episode 25 depicts the Virgin Road as a VF-1A Valkyrie. Unfortunately, that episode was animated by Star PRO, the animation contractor responsible for numerous animation errors not only in episode 25 but several other episodes they animated. Hence it is unreliable whether or not the Virgin Road is an A-type or not. Since the craft appears in the J-type Max colors and is a two-seater, I've decided to display the Virgin Road as both D-type and J-Type rather than A-type.
