The VF-31 is the flagship of the show but it still comes in several variants based on performance and specs.

The flagship of Delta is the VF-31J while the flagship of Frontier was the VF-25F. SDFM was VF-1J.

There's a reason commanders are given S variants. She's not good enough for one. She's not even good enough for the F which is usually the assault type.

VF-31A a shit. They didn't even bother to change the wings from the YF-30! Pathetic!

>>13851674
Damn it, anon, pull yourself together and pay attention!
Mirage loses the bowl because she has a variable fighter that is just a hair off the base model! Everyone else has role specific valkyries and she gets the simple one.

How can she even win the bowl if she can't even keep up in combat? Face it, she lost.
>>
>>13851676
>Also she's not the commander
Why do you think that is? You can't be making the mistake of thinking they'd make her a commander with her skills, would you? Because you have to prove yourself before you get your S variant and she doesn't seem to be leader material or good enough.
>>
>>13851654
why do you think we're referring to >bowl?

yeah not really sure why people are assuming its the worst when it has more head lasers than any other variant on delta besides the 1S, and they have always been indicative of someone with higher rank

Bullshit. That has absolutely nothing to do with it. Max used the base model VF-1A through most of the show but ended up with the best girl the series.

>Everyone else has role specific valkyries and she gets the simple one.
No they're not. Messer's valkyrie is no different in role as Arad's or Mirage's. Only Chuck's has the specific role of surveillance. The S variant is merely a distinction as the squadron leader.

>How can she even win the bowl if she can't even keep up in combat? Face it, she lost.
The fuck are you talking about? She does can keep up in combat as she wasn't shot down just like the rest of Delta squadron.

To be fair, almost no one got a VF-19. Those not named Isamu, got really watered down versions. Because the YF-19 tended to kill test pilots, from being difficult to fly.

The prototype(and VF-19A) have better performance than F variant only under a good pilot.

The F variant has a more controllable airframe for not so skilled pilots and compensates by having improved avionics or something, iirc.

>>13851567
>It's one step away from scrub status. Even Hayate has a J variant like Hikaru did.
Actually, it is a GOOD thing that we have a major named character flying a C variant. That means it would get to do something other than exploding, and it would sell better as an independent toy.

That sounds about right. Chuck is in more of a support role, and Mirage is the rookie. Arad and Messer are the aces so far.

>>13853865
Being an ace isn't a role but a status. Only Chuck's valkyrie has an actual role as it serves as surveillance.

>>13853895
>Only Chuck's valkyrie has an actual role
Every VF fills the rolee of providing air/space superiorty
>>
>>13853895
Arad's role is a commander as S is the commander variant.

Messer's role is assault as F is usually an attacker variant.

C is usually a slight variation on the A variant with updated Avionics (and wings in the case of the VF-31C).

Actual tuning and performance-wise it should be >>13851816

>>13853955
We don't even have any read outs that specify yet which variant is better than the others performance-wise. The only variant that's a given is S since they are always given to squadron commanders, Even then the difference isn't that significant. And if the VF-31J has superior performance it doesn't make sense to give it to Hayate who'll be the newbie in the team.
>>
>>13854026
It's easy to infer the performance of specific variants from the several generations of master files we've gotten. This isn't dowsing or fortune telling, we know these variants' roles and performances just from the letter alone.

There's only one exception to that rule and that's the VF-31E. The VF-25E was somewhere between the F and S performance wise and was supposed to use the Armored Pack as standard.

Recon/AWACS craft are usually designated VE or RVF if they have a built in radar and a massively improved Avionics suite. But all that really tells us about the VF-31E is that it's either meant to only use the radome container pod or that Chuck was using it specifically because the mission dictated it instead of a different container.
>>
What would it take for Hayate to not be as braindead as Hikaru or wishy-washy as Alto and still have a triangle?
>>
>>13851672
I still like Chronos more but agree that A is best 31 variant.
>>13851762
It's the position of vertical stabilizers. It works for VF-4 because of engine placement but here it does not click. Again, Chronos design sits with me better.
>>13851768
It actually works better with forward swept wings - but only if stabiliser were also swept in that direction.
>>13852814
Nobody, preview episode showed only forward swept variants. Probably same as with vf-24
>>
>>13854011
>Evolution>Prophecy/Chronos for me
Damn, I would loved Lucifer with 31a's wings.
>>
>>13854063
It still doesn't change the fact that they would give a better variant to a complete newbie like Hayate. He may seem like a gifted pilot but his rank and seniority doesn't justify it even if he is the MC.
>>
Inb4 Hayate wrecks his non-A-variant VF-31 in the final battle and Delta squad tows a 31A to him after confirming that he ejected
>>
>>13854080
I'm talking about the progression of names not what I like better.

I can see how Prophecy begets Messiah but how does Chronos turn into Seigfried?
>>
>>13854081
>give a better variant to a complete newbie like Hayate
Easy.
He's just good, kind of like how Micheal purposely increased the difficulty of the simulators for Alto because he knows that Alto will steamroll easier enemies.

Or simply, since Delta squadron is supposed to work with Walkure, using the forward swept wing variants would be more uniform. Giving him the 31A that has the delta-wing while everyone else is flying the forward swept wings just makes him stand out for no fucking reason other than "We can't give him a good plane".

The differences between each variant is very minor outside of specialised stuff like RVFs anyway. You give the pilots the A variant and they probably wouldn't even notice the difference in performance unless they normally fly the specialised VFs.
The VF-25F is the more offensive based variant. The main difference with the 25A? It has 2 head lasers as opposed to 1?
The VF-1J's difference with the VF-1A? 2 head lasers?
>>
>>13854114
>how does Chronos turn into Seigfried?
It doesn't.

Siegfried was Leon's callsign.

The 25(And its prototype) and the 27 is the one that really shows the rivalry.
>Prophecy -> Messiah
>Lucifer
>>
>>13854081
Maybe the 31J is the only plane they having sitting around so they have to give it to him, but Hayate is likely going to be broken since it looks like he is the blue pilot of the show as well.
>>
>>13854125
It does. The VF-31 is literally called the Seigfried. We've known this for months, dude.
>>
>>13854114
Ah, sorry.
>>13854125


Basic transformation, missile/canon pod is straight transplant from Chronos plus overall fuselage shape for 31.
>Lucy -> Drakens?
>>
To be fair how can you go higher than Messiah? Overlord?
>>
>>13854185
Valkyrie names don't really follow a pattern. The only exception were the Frontier VFs and those ended in 9 having forward swept wings and a sword name, but the 31 breaks that pattern too.
>>
>>13854081
>>13854126

How do you even know that the J variant is Hayate's Valkyrie?

In most of the Macross series, the main character has a white valkyrie with black and red stripes. Which is the best color scheme.
>>
>>13854119
VF-25F has much improved avionics and targeting systems compared to the VF-25 A too thanks to the triple horizontal sensor bar in its face.

>>13854250
See

Hayate is listed under the 31J.

>He's just good, kind of like how Micheal purposely increased the difficulty of the simulators for Alto because he knows that Alto will steamroll easier enemies.
With that logic they should've given a J variant to Max right from the start instead of the A. They always issued the better variants to the higher ranking pilots.

>Giving him the 31A that has the delta-wing while everyone else is flying the forward swept wings just makes him stand out for no fucking reason other than "We can't give him a good plane".
No one's implying that they would give the 31A variant to him. Going by rank and seniority they should give the 31J to either Mirage or Chuck and pass the 31C to Hayate.

But it doesn't make sense thematically. What does Chronos have to do with Seigfried other than being Leon's call sign which is otherwise unrelated?

That's like saying Prophecy -> Skull makes sense because Alto was Skull-4.

The YF-30 was the prototype design for the VF-31 and the YF-30's test pilot was called Sigefried-1. It's just named after him as a reference to Macross 30.
>>
>>13858430

It's not thematic this time around. Well, not in that sense. Kawamori's rocking the knight and fantasy stuff this time around. But, just a way of honoring the dude who piloted the YF-30, which the VF-31 is derived from. And amping up that the Delta Squadron are gonna be vaguely knight-like heroes in contrast to the Aerial Knights.

Its not supposed to make sense.
They are just names of VFs. The fact that the YF-25 was named Prophecy while the production model was called the Messiah probably was due to Kawamori(or whoever in-universe that names VFs) actually having themes with the names when he felt like it.

Walkure translates to Valkyrie, Siegfried fell in love with Brynhildr, a valkyrie. The theme here should be clear. The fact that its also a nod to the YF-30 is a minor thing.

In regards to the population of South Ataria relocating into the SDF-1 originally being 58,000, would the reduction to 56,000 be due to the first usage of the transformation sequence and later to 40,000 when Kamjin took advantage of the Daedelus Attack to sneak into the SDF-1 and attack it?

I hope Delta will show older valkyries, like the VF-11 or the VF-14, still being used by poor plantes.

Just finished 7 and watched the "movie."

The fuck. That movie was better than anything in the show. Basara having a rock off with a sexy babe was fucking amazing. Why couldn't she be a main character in the show rather than that piece of shit Mylene?

Because if Emila was a main character instead of Mylene, the Protodeviln would have been defeated by her and Basara in less than a month.

It says only some branches replaced the VF-4 in that link, seems more like it was used alongside VF-4 by the UN Forces.

If Gamlin won the Mylenebowl then she could actually be 3/4 zent.
