then in a movie alto leaves with the vajra queen

Red is obviously the best boy but I'm sure our favorite boy will be Master Herman as he is old and has a badass scar(?) and high on the list of "probably gonna die"

That's like, the biggest death flag there is.

Maybe some doujins that feature these fellas will actually get scanned and/or translated though.

There's a whole host of Alto and/or Brera doujins that remain unscanned.

That necklace Hayate has on, I wonder if whats on it is a fold crystal that came from the Vajra? If so, I wonder if Hayate does get to pilot will his crystal react and a Vajra comes to his rescue and be some some new type that would combine with his Valkyrie like armor parts?

>>13840271
>a Vajra comes to his rescue and be some some new type that would combine with his Valkyrie like armor parts?
That would be cool.

Could be the Vajra Queen's way of providing assistance without sending an entire fleet in, just send one special type that can combine with a VF like how they combined Battle Frontier with the Vajra Queen.

In both versions Alto has decided and it's not Ranka. The triangle is closed so to speak, there is no ambiguity at all. His going away (flying) or teleported by the Vajra queen is only a little detail that does not modify in any way Sheryl's love for him, and his love for her. Ranka is out.

>Unlimited micromissile spam

If it's really to fulfill the predictions of >>13840446 they could have it be the mid-season upgrade of this particular V(F)ajra. After the midseason fight where it sees the resident Macross-type vessel recombine mid-fight because reasons, it is heavily injured and retrieved by its Queen unit and upgraded accordingly by its wishes after seeing said Macross in action. When it returns it can combine with a VF or function solo and hollow.

Macrosshipfags win, Vajrafags win, VFfags win, everyone wins.

Except for green, maybe.

>>13840646
The Vajra Aggressor variant is merely a VF-25 that was modified to look like a Vajra for training purposes.

A hypothetical Vajra/VF combination would probably look somewhat like the YF/VF-29 considering that the 29 actually kind of resembles a Vajra in battroid especially with the turret on the back and the wings on the back.

Also, not just unlimited micro-missiles, but also infinite machine gun fire

>Yes, let's replace one kind of trash with another.

One man's trash is another man's treasure lol.
Since Macross 7 music has become less and less epic. As good as the music is in Frontier, in my view it still ranks lower than the songs of Fire Bomber. And I don't think it'll get any better with Delta going from what we have hear. Giri giri ai. Giri giri ai.

one of these on each wing to match the Draken/Ghosts.
>>
>>13840698
And this for the Koenig Monster they probably have?
>>
>>13840686

I've been meaning to ask, actually. So that back-mounted spike is a mockup that does nothing?
>>
>>13840708
It just has the laser turret gun that the VF-25 has, apparently.
>>
>>13840696
>One man's trash is another man's treasure
Bullshit excuse people use to try and cover for their bad tastes when they just won't admit it.
>>
>>13840722
That turret can take down a ship in a single shot. I don't think the VF-25 can do that even with a super pack.
>>
>>13840762
Well, the Vajra can down a ship with a single shot.

But that mockup doesn't. They were just training pilots to deal with the Vajra's movement patterns with those until they realised that the Vajra changes their tactics and shit so they stopped the program.

Wow, death flags are up before the show even began.

>>13841359
I'm pretty sure Kawamori has never killed a girl in the main triangle before. The closest was Sara but I don't think she died. Actually I don't think he's killed girls in general often unless they were fodder background characters
>>
>>13841404
The only major girl deaths I can think of are TV!Grace and Laplamiz, and even then the latter was during Ishiguro's tenure.

>>13841430

You forgot Aries/Iris Turner from Zero?
>>
>>13841454
To be fair, I'm hesitant on watching Zero, since it's Kawamori at his most drug-induced.

I don't watch Delta. Is this elf-gil involved in any romantic relationships with a chance for a happy ending? I know the answer is "no", asking just in case.

Zero is perfectly okay. It's not overly bad nor overly good. It's just okay.

>>13841528
Because we already did the two idols thing with Frontier
>>
>>13841580

I expect garbage, because that's what the first episode was. I mean, it might be good production-wise and all, but overall it seems too cliche and idol stuff looks too silly this time.
>>
>>13841528
She seems like she'll be one of the most important characters after the main three.

Freyja and Mikumo as part of the main three would feel way too close to Ranka and Sheryl.
>>
>>13841632
It would be a complete rehash of that triangle.

This one seems typical but when I watched the first episde it surprised me how Freyja was far more determined than Hayate. You can say the same for Mirage, who seems to take her job quite seriously. They both seem like good foils to him.

I still don't rule out them throwing Keith into the mix and turning the love triangle into some sort of love square.

Rather than a hybrid, I can see the Vajra Queen making special human-sized humanoid Vajra based on human physiology for interacting with humans, we even have a semi-sensible reason for them to be female human/Vajra, because the only humans that can reliably talk with the Queen and provide the information for the Queen to grow a new Vajra based on humans would be Ranka and Sheryl, both females.

The VF-31 isn't really more advanced than the YF-29 or YF-30. It's the logical evolution of their swiveling back weapon but the YF-29 likely has the highest specs of any valkyrie in-universe and will continue to hold that title until the inevitable YF-3X in the Delta movie and/or game.

I'll believe it when I see it. For now, the YF-30 is specifically designed to pierce dense fold faults and I don't doubt the YF-29 can do the same with a strong enough fold aura being produced by whoever.

>freighter

I'm reasonably sure that's a Guantanamo-class escort carrier, NUNS standard capital ship for their Macross fleets. These are not some flimsy 3rd-party transport boats but genuine military hardware - albeit hardware that's getting long in the engine trail by Delta's time. Guantanamos were around since 7.

That said, the scene does actually make sense, since we only ever see the Draken start its attack; it wouldn't be too much of a stretch to expect it to fire that gunpod as well. Knowing General Galaxy, that gunpod is probably the same type of multi-mode heavy-beam-capable gunpod as the Lucifer's, of which gutting ships in one hit would be well within capability. Pitting the Draken III against the Guantanamo is like attacking a WWII escort carrier with an F/A-18E/F.

Hey, at least it wasn't a fleet carrier getting shot to bits.
>>
>>13845328
>that gunpod is probably the same type of multi-mode heavy-beam-capable gunpod as the Lucifer's, of which gutting ships in one hit would be well within capability.
And even if it wasn't, shooting the hangar, which most probably has storage for missiles and weapons there will blow the ship into bits.

Ammunition detonation is serious shit.

Plus was in 2040, so that makes it 23 years. Not that that matters. In Macross two decades might as well be twenty in terms of tech growth.

the YF-19 is like 30 years old and the VF-171 is barely as fast as it

>>13845651
Honestly, while they might not have followed the YF-24's exact blueprint, there's no way they didn't adopt the ISC as part of their next generation fighter. It's just too game changing of a technology.

I'd expect to see a VF-19EX tech demonstrator first to show that they can indeed outfit a VF-19 to be EX Gear compatible before moving on to a more complex prototype. A temporary YF-20 perhaps before receiving a production designation in the VF-30s somewhere.

>>13845668
The stock VF-171 isn't as fast as the YF-19. The upgraded VF-171EX is, but only because the engines are literally straight copies of the VF-19's to force better speed and maneuverability out of it in anti-Vajra operations.

Even then I'd say the only thing that would make the VF -171EX comparable to the VF-19 is the addition of EX Gear, which makes the maneuverability of the stronger engines much easier to control for unskilled pilots.

But yeah, the base VF-171 is -to put it nicely- not so great.

Flimsy is when you doubt its structural integrity, not an indication of its service life. The VF-171 and the Guantanamo may be outdated as all heck, but if they're flimsy, then pretty much every VF and ship in the NUNS is flimsy since they are all built the same way.

I know a guy who hasn't watched it. He always talks about how old anime, especially mecha, are great, despite only watching maybe a dozen anime from before 2000 that aren't Gundam or Macross.

He hasn't watched Delta yet, but read comments on sites like MAL and laughing about how people are reacting to it the same way as they did Frontier. He hates idolshit with a passion (gives Macross a pass because it's a) old and b) mecha). I can't wait for him to watch Delta, after is starts airing, because he's either going to force himself to like it because it's Macross, or absolutely hate it because it's the culmination of everything he hates.

Delta wings are for the crap pilots while the more maneuverable forward swept wings are for the better ones.

Though to be be fair, Chuck's VF-31E should have delta wings. Not because it's he's terrible but because it's a Recon variant and doesn't need to be as fast or maneuverable.

Are series venturing outside of our galaxy uncommon?

Delta appears to be set in the Sagittarius Dwarf Elliptical Galaxy though.

Could have sworn it was the Large Magellenic Cloud.

The LMC is too far away and the wrong shape to match the diagram they showed us in the preview episode.
>>
>>13849742
Hmm. Alright. Good to know. Is the SDEG a satellite galaxy to the Milky Way?
>>
>>13849763
Yes, its orbit actually intersects the galactic disk and it's in the process of being torn apart by tidal forces.

C's are usually A variants with a few upgrades in the Macrossverse.
>>
>>13849835
According to what? The only other C type we've seen is the 11C and we never saw an A type for it.
>>
>>13849865
>VF-11A: First mass production type (produced in small numbers). Two windows on main sensor mounted on head turret.
>VF-11B: Mass production type. Anti-aircraft laser gun barrel Lengthened, one window on main sensor, and increased engine thrust. Most produced type of VF-11.
>VF-11C: Enhanced navigational electronic equipment (avionics) type. Focus shifted away from close-combat to better cost-performance balance.
>VF-11D: Two-seater version.
That's for the VF-11C.

>VF-25C: Standard Model
>The VF-25C specification corresponds to the A model, and was set up for delivery to the Unified Forces. They were initially shipped as Block 4 production aircraft. At present, it is the base of every derivative aircraft, such as the export model. The point that's the greatest difference with the A model is the installation of the Link 12 system used for data links. Otherwise, they are almost equal in their specifications. The only way to externally distinguish the C model from the A model is with the 2 data link antennae on the head.
That's for the VF-25A compared to the VF-25C

>I wonder what the default weapon container setting is
It's always gotta be gunpod + something else. I'm wondering if they can't fit a mini-micro missile launcher instead of the drone recharger in the left side.

The YF-30-style missile launcher leaves it without a primary beam gunpod (with unlimited ammo) but it does have those mini-shell firing ones on the arms.

>shell firing ones on the arms
Are they? Why wouldn't they be beam weapons as well like the hip cannons on the 24 based fighters?
>>
>>13850141
They were confirmed to be shell firing a while back. I assume they have the hip beamguns the others do as well. But the only reason they even have the handguns is so that the weapon container can hold the beam gunpod. It looks like they can fire it from between the engines like normal, but so far we've only seen them use the handguns for some reason.

I'm saddened to confess that I thought they were dimensional beasts in Z2 as I never watched the series. It was still fun to have then and the Getter things go at it.
